If we want to see in the bigger picture evolving a "W" in the futures we should see

a) in the DAX a level of 591x again and
b) in the EUR/USD a level of 1.228 again

If these bottoms hold - a longer uptrend may follow.
Holding that in mind!

Good trades

Today a weak signal exists.
Trading a Dax short from 11:00 to 13:30

entry @ 6131

exit @ 6143

result minus 12 points (maybe letting run that one a bit more could help)

risk - medium

Today another weak signal.
Taking a Dax long from 10:30 to 13:00

entry @ 6148

exit @ 6138 (SL)

result minus 10 points

risk medium - tighter stop than normal

comment: strong selling today - no real retracement taking place now
under these circumstances better to stay at the sidelines or flow with the trend.

comment on the SL:
normal SL on the last of a month is 40 points
adjusted uniquely for that big gap with 5 points
today which was fortunately not being taken out

Last week to end first half of the year:

Three trades negative - two of them with a tight stoploss of 10 points each, one with 12 points
Two trades positive - one with 8 and one with 45 points
Weekly result plus 21 points

Total points for the first 6 months plus 695 points for one contract.

10 points was under uncertainty last week respectively after so many negative
days.
30 points normal SL - as today
40 points with high vola or special days (announcements / high vola prev day etc.)
Today the SL held despite it was nearly touched

Good trades!
