Hi @indextrader

Please reread my post #2902.
I wrote my stop loss marker earlier in this thread - that was a desaster and filled up my inbox with mails.
In fact: THIS is a private JOURNAL. Not a copy/paste system.
The rules are defined. My stop loss indication is given in most of the posts with "IB vol ok" - or "IB vol HIGH/LOW"
to give a hint about the risk. That is ok for 95% of the trades taken here.
In fact I am the only trader on f.io giving HERE for free decisions to a trade in the DAX with direction, entry
time, exit time IN ADVANCE. Where else can you get such service on f.io?
All the trades taken here are done on my personal descision.
Sometimes with overlooking something of course

It could just be my opinion but to include your stop loss with each entry would simply be a normal thing to do, you would not be giving anything away of your system.
In posting trades your aim is being accountable, one to yourself and to any viewers. It makes for a better trader, accountability that is.
The IB volume comment is not quoting your stoploss.

I included a chart that clearly shows the only place where you could have placed your stop for this trade, it was over 87 points away.
You could not have placed your stop at any days open close high or low and not had this trade stopped out ?? unless as my chart shows (black line) or anything over 12150
12150 would be the absolute minimum some 80 points away, in past posts you've indicated your stops range from 30 to 40 points, hence my inquiry.
Lets keep things friendly but now this is my 3rd post asking for clarity, where did you place your stop loss for this trade please ? What # ?
Thanks and best trading to you.

To all followers - thanks for your time reading my journal

Nothing more to say here than repeating from earlier post:
"All the trades taken here are done on my personal descision."

Just take it as MY journal.

Discussions are ok - as long as YOU as a person give at least ONE trade
in your journal IN ADVANCE the same as I DO HERE for 5 years
POINT

Criticism does not help here:
I need 5 times more time to answer here online nearly to all requests than
to take the trade and make it online fo you:
My system was determined to "not" handle a trade between entry
and exit (or stop). To make ALL the trading as smooth and short possible.
With only a little screen time. Plus I do not need watch all day.
For the 95% trades mentioned - the rule-stops - written here - are used.

Thank you for replying
My aim is not to criticize, if this were the case I would not recieve messages supporting my inquiry.
In all honesty I did ask a simple question and it would have taken no more than 5 seconds to show where you placed the stop loss.
Or maybe you didn't use one, not sure what system of trading that falls under.
Where I post
I give many pre-entry trading examples with clear entry SL and trade recaps, full transperancy. Charts before and after
Best trading :>

A trade might happen today - after a impressive Tuesday trade and
a strange Wednesday development.
Direction will be short. Longs are not to see before tomorrow.

The Wednesday rule could be streamlined a bit - after seeing conflicting rules
yesterday. The complexity of that rule set is now less complex. After backtesting
seeing better results on special occasions like a rally the day before.

Good trades

Hi @IndexTrader IT

Dax Future June contract had low of 12047,5 today as you mention.
On request of some readers I am using the continuous contract
of the Dax - as that data is more widely available and used.

GFIs1

PS: have never traded CFD's

Appreciate your reply, the futures charts show gaps while continuos do not.
These gap fill trades; more times than not are reliable to trade.
As seen today worked well closing the gap.

Not mentioning anything you don't already know just some input on your post

Best Trading:>
Regards IT
