Looking @ Dax daily some obvious "W" pattern is on its way - which might get with high probability some up to nearly 13200 until Sep starting Oct.
Have a look at the chart - indicating this... (does not mean tomorrow's trade will be a long )

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Above scenario may be smoked:
The "W" is far from reached. Instead the price went lower than the double bottom mentioned.
So things will likely head down in the next few months.
In fact - the positive about it - is to get easier points on the shorts...

Ciao guidoisot
I see it the same - stop hunting - and then the reversal.
Thats why I took a countertrade 11-13h see above.
Is my normal Wednesday rule when things are tricky like strong range on previous day or after a gap @ open.

Good trades
GFIs1

Ciao.

12033 was way up, right at the double top, when it could 50/50 continue up or retrace
what made you decide for the short?
a candle pattern? a divergence? a market profile analysis? Order flow? ...
what timeframe chart were you using for deciding?
.... if I may ask.
thx

Of course you can ask: Wednesday in my pattern system is >90% short.
Just the entry and exit times may change depending on what happened the day before
and on the IB 9:00 to 9:30.
As my rule (extended time length) did not work - I switched to my normal rule.
That went good today - but no more trades...
