Some tricky point reached here: the DAX has the Kumo above in the 4h-chart.
Means some resistance as illustrated here:



Scenario for the moment is to get quickly through this Kumo to see 12k soon.

I did not take any trade today - as I was full day away from keyboard.

In fact riding the big news especially on a news day like this bring sometimes some good wins.
Taking the known patterns - the gains are likely.

As I can not count any back options in this thread - this one will not count anyway.
But it will be explained in the next post. Also to show how the pattern rules are chiming in.

The futures.io statistics sent me back to field "0".
No forum reputation because of "0" wisdom.

Was even mentioned on the current posting index under the 10 best posters this month in the challenge...

Always changing color in the title. Since a while.

No fun anymore!

So I stop posting immediately my thoughts in this forum. Maybe things will change for the better.

Thanks for following and reading - have a nice weekend

I wouldn't take it this way. It has nothing to do with your posting or your trading or with anyone's assessment of you. In the changelog thread, @Big Mike has been discussing some coding issues he is having with the forum reputation calculations and problems it has caused with Wizards incorrectly seeming to lose their Wizard status. He is working to fix the code, but has encountered unexpected difficulties. It is a complex computation, and recent changes have introduced bugs that have to be tracked down and fixed.

In a recent post he specifically mentions you as someone who is incorrectly affected by this bug, and asks for understanding as he attempts to juggle the current issues with the forum:

So truth is, I am using a bash script to do this and it just needs to be re-written in PHP so I can better control & log what is happening on a per-user basis, to narrow down why the math is resulting in zero somewhere (a divide by 0 error probably). The logging and looping is harder in bash for this.

But, right now I really need to spend time converting old webinars to HTML5 instead of this. So I hope all wizards bear with me on this and their fluctuation in status back and forth until we can solve it. Bear with me guys!

As soon as I get the webinars converted, I'll come back to this and re-write the script and solve it. Your continued support and understanding during this time is appreciated!

This is a technical problem that Mike has recognized and is working on, and does not involve any disrespect for you or your contributions. I suggest patience and giving him time to work out the problems. It will be fixed.

Hi gfi,
Have you verified this with stats?

GFIs1 View Post
As a longtime follower you know that my trades here concentrate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Why?
All of those are moving days.
After my theory short time free money is flowing into the markets on Mondays - parked outside over the weekend (risk!), then first gains will be made on Wednesday. Finally money is flowing out on Fridays - you say it - to park it over weekend again.
Is not meant for stock holders - but for day traders, private or professionals who invest in futures and derivatives and are risk averse.

Happy trades!
GFIs1
