Dax long from 09:30 to 13:00

entry @ 7008

exit @ 7054

result plus 46 points

risk - medium

outlook - seems that some ECB news for today's decision had been seen yesterday already ;-)
so the downmove is history now...

What was the basis for the long entry?

hi @Amnesia

the first 30min candle from 09:00 to 09:30: was GREEN
entry time earlier than normal as ECB decision was programmed for 13:30

hope this helps

This thread is about ONE Dax trade per day with the goal to minimize risk
and to take out the maximum points in a predefined time window.
So these ECB days are a special thing which is NOT covered by the
daily system. Instead only the first movement with the most
probable direction is taken here.
Don't forget that the rules are pre-fixed for all trading days of a year.

Looking back at post #372 where a push north was discussed - I am making an update here
some 10 days later:
As we can see the bullish push has now brought the price north of the green spiral. New highs
are within reach now - expecting to see the push going further north before futures expiring
end of next week. At that point some retracement will be normal.

Seeing that bullish development - the question arises up to where the Dax will
push before finding the next ceiling.
The bet here is around 7366 points...
Lets see how things evolve ;-)

As yesterday's range exceeded 150 points - a day without a GFIs1 trade is given.
The normal rule would not apply to give a positive result...

But as a rule of thumb - taking a long from 9:30 to 13:30 might be an alternative :-)
