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.

Hi Rugosoft
I can recommend "Ichimoku Trading. Besser traden mit der Wolkenchart-Indikatortechnik". Only available in German.
The writer is a professional: Karin Roller - to be found on go-guidants.com
She has a blog every day which is well followed. Plus she shows her talents every second month in a different town
in Germany. Honestly I haven't seen her live. But her daily preview is worth to read in the morning (around 8am).

Hi @GFIs1, thanks for the special mention, be assured that it is mutual. I will say strongly that I have found your words of wisdom and systematic approach to be always inspiring and usually better value than most of my own crazy schemes. I am not currently online most of the week but have planned my own far more systematic approach for next year - here's hoping I have learned something.

Best Wishes to you in all your endeavours and travels.

Cheers

Travel Well

Many thanks for my long time followers @aquarian1 and @Devil Man for the nice compliments.
You were among the first readers of thread here. Most of the questions were welcomed. It
helped to think about things that were not in my thinking.
Therefore to have a solid journal (which of course brings up some criticism) helps tremendously
for one's own trading.
I only can repeat the phrase: "I recommend a own journal here on fio!"

Happy trading to you too!
GFIs1 - who will be of course around.

PS: Concerning my Walzer-Thread I will post the results of upcoming Walzer in the future.
Easy, as the Walzer signal is fully automated...
Looks like time is here - if vola gets higher again - to see more of this easy trading method.

Short momentum is right now very strong.
Because of uncertainty:
• Italy balance
• US - troubling the world with future wars
• Germany - elections - this weekend in Hessen (Frankfurt) which might influence strongly Berlin (GroKo CDU/CSU/SPD)
• Interests that are rising quickly in USA - next important date: THURSDAY!
• Not very good outlook for the production numbers in Europe/US/China

Lower lows ahead very soon
NEXT important Support to find @ 10350

Looks like this happens before end of year.
Some need to get rid of long positions?

Good trades!

As announced - this is not the end...

result -32 points

GFIs1

Well - the short was right - the timing not:
End of day (cash hour): 11182
End of future: 11067

As we see - the 11000 is no limit but trembling.

Waiting for Friday!

Well - the political move (Merkel stay as chancellor but quits as president of CDU) made the path

No problem so far - Wednesday - last of month - will do it too

Midterm elections today...
Forex shows reaction before final results.
Dax on the down move.
Investors see some incertainty - there is plenty of down possibilities.
Tomorrow we get more clarity.

Impressive record Bro way to go!
Was just reading your thank you thread from a while ago.

I don't actually remember your entry signal strategy...
Are you still using the Ichimoku on the 30min?

Cheers

Hi guidoisot
Followed my rules - starte 11:30 the trade. Hopefully a second wave down might occur.
Obviously a bit later than previewed.

In fact the dive in the DAX this morning came from SAP (buying a US-company) which
has brought SAP down 4,5%. As SAP is the largest German company in the Dax INDEX
the movement was quite impressive.

Good trades

A typical inside day - looking @ the daily chart of the Dax.
Tomorrow a nice short is on the plate - checking both - daily & 4h Kumo's.
Much space into direction "lower" - new low of the year soon possible.

Impressive record Bro way to go!
Was just reading your thank you thread from a while ago.

I don't actually remember your entry signal strategy...
Are you still using the Ichimoku on the 30min?

Cheers
F

Thanks @Fadi

Yeah - still the same strategy as used before.
In fact - just watching cash hour Dax Index with my rules instead of the more flippy future Dax.
Gave more stable results lately.
Just to make it clear: will stop my longtime journal here by the end of this year as announced.
But will still be playing with my daily GFIs1 Dax as well as my hi vola "Walzer" in the future.
Nothing will change - just my announced trades will no longer be here...

Bonne soirée

entry @ 11123
exit @ 11093 (SL)
result -30 points

PS: still shaky market - with short as next goals...
PS 2: Intention was good - SL setting too tight - direction finally as previewed. No problem so far. Next chances ahead

Hi Guido
No matter - just trading after rule set. This doesn't look for last lows...
The rule today was for a down gap on a Tuesday. Which worked nearly - until the stop hunters entered...

Hi @guidoisot

Watching a probable pattern of "double bottom" in the daily Dax I can see only very little possibility to reverse there.
Instead some lower lows are on the plate.
Because the Kumo (cloud) is thickening in the future which means more stable resistance on the upside:



Be aware of thanksgiving and a tricky Friday on the DAX this week.

Good trades

another question, if I may? maybe next time you post a trade.
When you say kumo thickening do you measure it on the vertical of current bar? or at the end of the kumo 26 bars forward from current bar? thx

Easy: The kumo is most interesting at its end - means 26 bars forward.
Just don't take it for short time - but from 30m up - then it is very valid.

Just an add to the same kumo:
If the cloud on the opposite is horizontal (actual trading time) then price
will be attracted. Means with high possibility tearing price through the cloud.
Same in the opposite direction from top to down.

Happy time with Ichimoku!

hi

why?

is it perhaps because option sellers might end up with opposing interests vs those of (... I do not know who) "other market makers"?

Just 2 points:
• End of month is normally important. Especially on the quarter endings to brush up the numbers
• The sideway movement in the last week(s) might have an end: the win of bears or bulls show the direction

Half of the trade right now formed a down PLUS a diamond.
As the trades obviously follow the path - this might give the answer until my sell @ 16:30h

Here my chart with pricing in the middle of nowhere:

This week was still sideways - Friday inclusive!

Of course the financial crowd is waiting for signals from Buenos Aires:
The chaotic start of the G20 meeting shows some very grey clouds at the horizon
while behind the curtains they were finalizing the *results* on the first day.
Many talks between the most heavy representing presidents had been cancelled.

Hopefully on Monday some direction might come visible to the rest of us

but maybe thought: **

Mauricio Macri (ARG): "So happy they all have gone - Bin Salman as well - ugh"

Angela Merkel (GER): "No matter what we decided here - will go home and sit it out - until I am no longer chancellor"

Donnie Trump (the only star): "I don't remember what was the deal at the summit - but you will get my twitter tirades when I will start with my jet"

Wladimir Putin (RUS): "Need to get back home quickly to take over Ukraine without any resistance right now"

Bin Salman (happiest arab): "What I like the most about Argentine: they don't have enough space left in their prisons - bye bye Argentine!"

AND all this influences the markets and our trades...

Happy weekend

Dax made during cash hours a hi/lo of 316 points.
After the low some recovering far under 11k is at hand.
Cloud still far above in nearly any time frame.
Will be interesting for the Friday trade - as the normal rules will be given.
For sure the trade will start 9:30 as a normal Friday trade - we will see
where things are heading to. Exit foreseen 13:30. Direction opposite to
IB direction of 9 to 9:30.

Will not be online here - so the trade will be plotted later.

Good trades

Normally NFP numbers do not much influence the DAX - as they are on Friday and come out 14:30h European time.
By then a normal trade here had been closed already.

Will be interesting, how the FDAX-trading during the Asian-session will affect the FDAX. At least the High/Low of the day will be different and the Gaps will be smaller.

Not very bright signs at the horizon for world markets.
This influences the DAX most as the big production in Germany is strongly exported.

Looking back some years in the daily chart we get some hints where the travel might go.
First thing to mention is that the bears have more weight.
Things like Brexit, like rising interest rates, like more weapons with less climate goals etc.
bring the indices down - all because of certainty decreases - and markets react in advance.

Here my chart with two goals within the next 12 to 18 months:



Make the best out of it! Good trades

Gap down over the weekend - influenced from USA and Asia trades before Europe opening.
Dax was indecided up during IB as the breaking news came in that GB may do a self decided exit
or cancel the origin decision. Came from the European court... So the price reversed to down.

Trade here: short from 10:30 to 13:00
entry @ 10697
exit @ 10739
result -42 points ---> price movements not as awaited..

PS: Be aware of last ECB decision taking place coming Thursday!

ECB did not change much - except stopping to buy bonds by end 2018 which was announced earlier this year.
ECB has a bond collection worth more than a trillion Euro...

This morning gap down and IB price down:

So Dax long 9:30 to 13:30
entry @ 10787
exit @ 10832
result 45 points

Next week's important points:

• normally the week before Christmas gives some valuable points
• 3rd Friday (here 21st) is triple witch - just before the weekend (attention!)
• The week after Christmas is a very short one - thus NO trades here!

As I will finish this journal thread - the last trade might being taken on 21st:
3 trades on Monday, Wednesday, Friday are ahead.
By then the yearly results are given as well.

Happy weekend
GFIs1

PS: the GFIs1 Hi/Lo thread (Walzer) will be supported in 2019. But no longer
as a signal (before taking a trade) thread. Just to sum up automated trades
taken by the system to see how volatile times may give some very interesting
positive results with normally low risk.

After 2495 days since first trade published in this GFIs1 Journal - this will be

LAST Trade announced before taken... SIGH

Nevertheless it was sweat and fear and joy plus many great friendships.

As said the Walzer thread will be supported on those rare occasions with high rewards.

Looking back to my post from Dec. 10 where I showed my glimpse on 2019 we get some insight and learn about interesting points of how to read an Ichimoku chart properly:

There are really only few very important points:
1) to see price wading through the Kumo (cloud) properly - ALWAYS - if NOT the cloud stops further development
2) see pattern of 1-2-3 attempts to wade through... normally it is on 3rd. And Kumo needs to be horizontal on top for a (before) short price going long --- and vice versa
3) as long the (future) Kumo is still with both lines going in the same direction - price will not cross Kumo

Have a look onto the actual chart - the development is like said 2 weeks ago - and the proof is within this chart:



Hope this helps

The Dax made a hi/lo of -340 points in one day during cash hours - quite impressing!

Looks like my prediction to test the 10000 soon was not false.
Price came down yesterday to 10280...

As announced here the statistics of trades since inception of this thread.

Beginning with the interesting day results. For longtime followers it is clear that the first years I took a trade every day during the week. Later I dropped Tuesday and Thursday as they were not consistent before optimizing. Of course these results are only for THIS system:


From the plot we can see that Fridays were best in 2018!

Now to the different weeks. I packed all years cumulated weeks into one chart - all from my vast result sheet(s):

Only 13 weeks of 52 gave negative results over time. The rest was positive. Green weeks with much better average result than the negative ones.

Conclusion:
This system worked nicely during the last 7 years - even with many rough periods and very different economy base.

Happy New Year - all the best for 2019 !!!

Be aware of markets diving at least for the next 6 to 12 months.
Reasons are insecure politics, wrong forecasts (see Apple) - more to come, Brexit, USA household,
US-China war, military overspending and much more...

Stay tuned and alerted on longer trades.

GFIs1 - with sunny smiles

OH YES!
The GFIs1 daily trade is no longer announced @ this place.
Some overlook in special situations (like today) will have a place in this thread
as it does still sort of "journal" the 30m view.
My point of view will be based on a clear easy to read chart.

Just a look @ the DAX first half of January. Mostly sideways...

but then - watch the chart:



Level was around 10900. On Tuesday a nearly breakout to the up on entry.
Things came back to the same level.
Today the DAX started with an up gap in the morning and made a rally over 11k,
actually 11150.
As the overall view is short - this could mean a bull trap for lower prices.
Background still a) US trade war, b) GB Brexit, c) rising interest on US side and no
followers..., d) Year 2018 numbers will come out very soon - the best companies
early - all others later until March.

So beware of longtime decisions.

What happened after last post on that theme Of course it went as previewed - got ino Kumo on 4th (3rd real touch) from south to north (not finished yet). Watch here the daily Dax and compare with upper linked post:



Ichimoku as its best - one can really use it - even on different time frames.
Happy trades!

Good trades

Getting back to the down scenario mentioned in previous post here an update to the facts. Interestingly just ONE daily candle went through the limiter line given from the Ichimoku cloud. And this candle was the real reversal for the next trading days - amazing, isn't it?
Get here the latest update with the previewed direction and speed (angle of the price-line):

Not so bad to get a result of 98 points in two trading days - over the weekend - and - over month's end.
In effect this is 2450 Euro per contract.
Looks like the my DAX rules are still in best form!

Happy trades

Another short day...

Dax short 9:30 to 15:30
entry @ 12417
exit @ 12414
result 3 points

looks like 16:30 exit might be better
the volatility today was not Wednesday pattern like...

well - this is the pic of 16:20



so exit @ 16:30 was 12351 would have given -> 66 points
