Thursday trade

Nice gap down from yesterday low to expected cash hour start of ~100 points.

Will bring us to a rare gap trade today:

Effective gap is 107 points - so if everything works fine I will take the countertrade

Dax long from 10:30 to 13:30
entry @ 12225
exit @ 12276
result 51 points

Friday trade

Dax short 9:30 to 13:30

entry @ 12301
exit @ 12231
result 70 pts

Price is in 30m Kumo - so some sideways possible

comment 11:45
On track! Price closed the gap to Wednesday and is on its way down.
Was quite obvious to see the lower prices confirmed.
Awaiting to see price getting out of Kumo within the set time for the trade.
comment 12:15 - which did in the last minutes...

Wednesday trade

Very bad numbers of last quarter came out today: DB Deutsche Bank: -3,1 Mia, Daimler: -1,3 Mia...
and the Dax is still in the high - believing EZB tomorrow will move interests down - haha!

So I will take a short trade

Dax short from 11:30 to 15:30
entry @ 12509
exit @ 12532
result -23 points

Thursday ECB...

Attention today:

Important ECB decision - 13:45, press conference 14:30

plus low volume on the markets (summertime)
Prices were already on the rising side - which may not be
supported then by the ECB decision:
Might tend to high vola around those times - be aware
Better to stay @ the sidelines...

GFIs1

addendum 10:05
well the correction down is on its way:
the high of this morning was 12599.5 - 12600 not reached
actual price 12544

addendum 14:00
ECB made no change - interest rate still 0,00%
Dax jumped back on entry price from today...

Remarks on ECB decions VOLATILITY

Just to show how price is jumping - here an example of today's Draghi ECB endeavour:

Watch the vola around the time of the public making and speech.

The Wednesday down came today ;)

The Dax made some interesting move down today - nearly wanted to have yesterday on my setup which did not work. But watch the price dive after a little push up and then the dive until - we do not know yet:
But what we see is a move (Hi/Lo) of 306 points in 2 hours...

I am pretty sure to see more volatility days like this in the near future (with Boris and Donald leading them).

PS: was ok to stay @ the sidelines

Which led to a NEW WALZER

The slip from 14:00 to 15:30 gave a Walzer signal by SMS

which said short from 15:30 to 16:30
1st leg short:
entry @ 12452
exit @ 12350
result 102 points

2nd leg long 16:30 to 17:30
entry @ 12351
exit @ 12380
result 29 points

Total result: 102 + 29 = 131 points

GFIs1 who is happy to see new Walzer patterns again...

Here a first illustration (trade not finished yet)

What is a "Walzer"?


For those who are not familiar with the Walzer can get help in my other thread here:

https://futures.io/trading-journals/34280-gfis1-highvola-dax-journal.html

You will find detailed rules on how to take the trade. Even first step and or second step are defined.
The rule set is very easy, can even be easily programmed. The good point of the Walzer is the
ability to see the Walzer evolving before taking the trade.

Happy reading
GFIs1
