Good morning redgreen - Cheers!
Very good question(s) which I will answer in detail here.
Short answer before the details from my side - I do not see that this one will close in 2021!

Short Christmas Week - Monday trade

DAX with gap down this morning - region 13512 - new Corona type in GB, flights canceled, roads and the Tunnel closed. A hard Brexit highly possible. Corona variant spreading alreday. Not sure if the vaccine helps on the new case as well.
Expected a down to 134xx until 15:00.
The year end rally has effectively ended here.

DAX short 10:00 to 16:30
entry @ 13341
exit @ 13171
result + 170 points

GFIs1

Trading days until Wednesday (incl.). Thursday and Friday EUREX closed.

edit 8:30 - 13420...
edit 11:35 - DAX near 13k battle line (actual price 13050) - we might see <13k very soon!

Monday review

During cash hours the DAX made a hi/lo in a very short time of 385 points down.
In the afternoon some recovery had been seen.

Open 9:00 13434
Close 17:30 13254
which made + 180 points
Seeing the result of my trade beginning not before 9:30 with 170 points is still good.

Tuesday

The DAX future started 07:30 today on the same level as 17:30 of Monday.
Just to mention that this is 140 points lower than the high of Monday evening after hour.
Asia around -1% this morning.

Trend today is still down as Brexit is still without any result, first vaccinations with a slow start,
lockdowns show low selling in the otherwise highest demand on last quarter of the year.
Then a larger uncertainty if the vaccines help on the mutant version COVID-19 Var2 doesn't
help for higher prices.

Hi @GFIs1,
I just discovered your trading journal, I gave a quick look at it looking at some old posts as well as your most recent ones.
I have a couple of questions:
1) does the journal represents all the trading you do during the day? or do you take other trades a part from the 1 dax trade of the journal?
2) if you take such a small number of trades, what do you do the rest of the day? do you have another job or something to keep you busy?
3) why do you only trade the DAX?

I hope you can answer some of these questions, thanks a lot and congrats for keeping up with a journal since 2012.

Tuesday trade - SECOND to LAST of the YEAR 2020

DAX with new ATH for the start of cash hour ~ 13900
Asia all green, US new ATH...
Scenario - some further jump up to get tomorrow back again on a still high level to end the year - means sellers to close open positions.

DAX long 9:30 to 16:30
entry @ 13870
exit @ 13840 (SL)
result -30 points

GFIs1

at least the gap to yesterday is closed

Wednesday trade - LAST trading day of 2020

DAX started lower - as expected. Low volumes expected - means more volatility.

DAX short 9:30 to 14:30 (end of this trading day)
entry @ 13786
exit @ 13739
result +47 points

Good trades!
GFIs1

edit 9:55 - on track, scenario works, a possible goal is 13609

Tuesday trade

Interesting start into 2021 of the DAX:
high volatility
high volume
new ATH's
more...

So after a Monday with a bunch of opportunities a Tuesday trade is at stake:

DAX short 9:30 to 13:00
entry @ 13743
exit @ 13664
result + 79 points

GFIs1

edit 13:20 - a further rule says short until 16:30 - a support in this down is @ 13546...

Monday trade

DAX shows for last Friday in the daily chart a perfect "Hanging Man". Which means a strong reversal in the long to short.

DAX started lower than 14k with a down gap: 13966 pre cash.
Asia very mixed: Sidney red, China equal, Japan +2,4%.

Scenario on start: closing the gap to Friday (cash hours) on IB and getting lower during the day.
GAP closed on IB!

DAX short 9:30 to 15:30
entry @ 13947
exit @ 13842
result + 105 points

GFIs1

well - not the best entry scenario - BUT - the plot given at entry played out very well!
AND - the exit perfectly touched within the pattern(s).
Happy for foreseeing the trade

Tuesday

Asia mixed - more red
DAX within upper range of yesterday
not much awaited - looks like a sideways day
a trade only when a Walzer signal comes up - little chance!

Good trades

Wednesday trade

Day of Inauguration of Biden (18:00) European Time
DAX IB inside Tuesday range.

DAX short 10:30 to 14:30
(adjusted as IB candle turned green)
entry @ 13895
exit @ 13895 (SL on entry)
result 0 points

The price came down a bit just to jump up on US stock opening which was foreseen as the crucial point for today.
Things will settle a bit when the president change will be over.

Friday

DAX started this morning @ 13912 (7:30)

Scenario:
Cash hour start getting back up to 13912
From there 9:30 down to max. 13766

This might happen - but things will be clearer from 9:30

9:30 - scenario already history - IB came down to 13778

Good trades
