risk - medium

outlook - pushing further up (71xx?), expecting reversal day now tomorrow

GFIs1

Scenario of 71xx finally arrived this afternoon.
The systems time window did not fit to the actual moves today - this is no big deal.
So after the two longs this week I expect the reversal tomorrow - fits into the plan :-)

New DAX Swing Trade thread opened

As this thread does not allow overnight or over weekend trades but some swing traders might
be interested in a bigger picture approach - I have started a thread for big wave trades in the Dax
and will compare the theoretical results over time with the system trades in this thread here.

The address for interested traders is:

https://futures.io/trading-journals/22509-gfis1-dax-big-move-swing-trade-approach.html

Any comments welcome :-)

The consolidation down to push price under 7K has not yet finished..
Our time window was to short or the support to high - whatever..
Waiting with a long before this criteria has met.

Good Trades
GFIs1


14:20h - level of 6985 was hit

Enjoy your weekend!

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
