Short is well spotted ! Chapeau. Your exit is always time based. Never a price target? Today you could consider the 11500 area as support, which would give an above average profit in your trading system.

My system is pattern based - with best entry and exit times. No other influence - taking just what the market gives.
Hence no targets... Plus normally no trade open when US begins to trade.
Of course I could put those steps into the rule plan. Just my "jump in and forget"-approach would have then much
more work - and also survey / screen time.
All that is omitted by taking just like today - the Friday rule.

@Rugosoft
You were great to see a good take profit zone.
Now that 11491 was reached that would have given good points.
For sure it will be interesting, if the Dax will dive more. Not to
forget 13:00 little witch for October based derivatives.
My trade will end 13:30 as announced. By then the dices...

Hi GFIs1, as per your consent ...

for today:

dax 1 put, 1st strike ITM; expiring next month is DAx put 11600 - 16Nov2018



at 9:30 is @ 220 (times 5 = 1100Euro)


at 13:30 was 220 (almost! .... ..... I missed checking out the precise quote, but looking at the put trade record it looks like it was just about 220 again)




so put bottom line today is: flat.

Thank you. My fully automated DAX trading system took a first long position @11499. (Closed the shorts) This system is an overnight system, buying and selling fully automatically . So no real time screen time required. Only analysis screen time. It will buy more when the price goes lower that is not confirmed by more volume. Stops are by the opposite trade.

Thanks Rugosoft - Happy to see a fully automated trading system!
Even better when it works smoothly. KUDOS!

My system here is not easily programmed. The main point is the Ichimoku cloud in different chart times.
Plus the "looking back" as well "looking forward" on special situations like last of month, holidays, triple witch etc.
for choosing the right rule.

I wish you great results with your trades.

I am not familiar with ichimoku charting. What book or course would you recommend to start studying it ? Thanks.
