@xplorer opened a new thread to get some answers on margin calculations for a future...

This is a complex theme and only if you trade futures directly - you need to know
HOW MUCH MONEY is NEEDED to START and to HOLD...

I answered these questions with the appropriate link to one of those future brokers
that are dealing with the DAX.

You may find them all here:


Happy weekend

Dax long 10:30 to 17:30

entry @ 12874
exit @ 12897
result 23 points

IB vol good

GFIs1

edit: 10:40
Quite much pressure from buyers
Tricky situation near ATH and new week's start
Double up gap in the morning not easy as well concerning entry time

Hi,

maybe it's just me I don't understand, but:

11:30 low-10:30 open=43 pts > 30 pts SL > 40 pts SL also.

How did you survive it, or just no SL at all?

regards,
Alex

This morning Dax started already with another up gap and a new ATH - 13k is not far.

Hi Alex

Of course a hard SL is always present.
Did you see a GFIs1 trade from 9:30 to 17:30 in this thread?
No.
This was well previewed:
1) New September contract
2) ATH in attack
3) Rising indices in USA
4) DOUBLE UP GAP for the beginning of trading on Monday...
which is VERY RARE - during a Dax Year... (maybe we need some statistics here?)

Given ALL those mentioned points: Large Stop Loss or NO Trade
Special rules for special situations.

GFIs1

PS: ah - yes - the SL setting was 50 points. No risk no Fun. And very rare too.

Here a plot of the last few days - some explanations in the chart:



now you see 13k will be hopped over easily - watch KUMO - as always

On a very high level the 30 Dax companies might make some window dressing
before first half year 2017 ends. 12700 works like an anchor for the moment.
And right after the tricky weekend with 4th July (US) holiday...
Unstable political situation: US against Russia problem in Syria, US pressing against
North Korea, GB Brexit and Theresa May, France, German elections etc. etc.

All that might reflect in shaky indices in next months. Be aware. **

GFIs1

** at least a Walzer might finally come up with that scenario

Dax long 10:30 to 13:30

entry @ 12718
exit @ 12740
result 22 points

IB vol good >10k

GFIs1

edit 12:48: reversal to this down PUSH was not easy - but found the right point.
Now hoping for 12769 (1h cloud bottom) before getting lower again. Of course
until 13:30
