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.

Bigger picture II

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.

Where is the turning point?

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 ;-)

No Friday trade


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 :-)
