IB started with a real plunge this morning:
IB Open: 10668
Low: 10572
Volume: 17516 contracts as mentioned (High)
IB Hi/Lo of 97 points

Risk was HIGH - which means high volatility

What to decide:
a) high vola - stay at the sidelines
or
b) take the trade - SL @ 40 points because of high risk IB mentioned

Either way - things develop in a quick and dirty way (as always)

Now things play out as previewed.
There will be a next obstacle on Monday:
Rule of "last" of month is: "Friday Rule". Then and ONLY then!
Means on Monday things will be as on a normal Friday while TODAY
we do not play the Friday rule - just if you were not sure on what was priority.

Good trades!

No trade today: yesterday range high.

Instead watching for a Walzer eventually.

There was none...

Will not take a trade until US elections are over.

No normal behavior in the last weeks in the markets.
That easy

Happy weekend

Exact price of indices AFTER elections are most interesting right now.

But - WHERE will the DAX stay right after the elections?

Here a short overview:



Watch the "W" that supports current level!

PS: was perfect to NOT take any trade today
