Wednesday trade

Asia mixed this morning. btc$ still battle @ 50k.
DAX30 first time check today of the composition of the 30 companies:
2 might get thrown out: Heidelberg Cement and Beiersdorf.
Those might be replaced by hello fresh and Siemens.

Important change in September: DAX30 will change into DAX40 - means
40 companies will be part of the DAX40 - which might flatten the vola a bit.

Interestingly today's announcement that the German BAFIN investigates
EY (former Ernst & Young) for not having seen false numbers of wirecard
many years. That company with its extreme bankruptcy last year is the
first DAX30 company that had quit this index caused by bankruptcy since
the beginning of the DAX.

DAX started higher this morning - with a probable up gap.
Made a new ATH @ 14182 after 10 minutes cash trading.
So the setup is ok.

DAX short 9:30 to 14:30*
entry @ 14165
exit @ 14012
result + 153 points

GFIs1

* the down move came very late - prolonged time to 16:30
The battle @ 14k is not over yet!

A Walzer in the Afternoon

Parallel with the trade above a Walzer signal came in and dictated time and direction:

DAX short after 2 red candles down (first one must have +50 points in 30m)

Leg 1 short 15:30 to 16:30
entry 14055
exit 14012
result +43 points

Leg2 long 16:30 to 17:30
entry @ 14009
exit @ 14074
result + 65 points

Walzer result + 108 points

That signal was very helpful in upper trade!
GFIs1

Those bigger movements are traders paradise - more to see in this month - for sure!

Silently the page views of this simple Journal has topped 600k!

Many thanks to the followers here!
Without you the effort of my typing would have given no results

In fact the new year has shown very interesting edges for lots of traders like us.
Focusing on the DAX within this journal plus the Walzer one could earn quite steadily.

For those who are not familiar with the Walzer which is shown with rules in a separate thread
please refer to this link:


Happy trades

Thursday

Asia mixed this morning. No important numbers. Looks as we have no gap to yesterday.
Wednesday range hi/lo of 222 points.

DAX expected to make new lower lows today - means trend down as we have quite a resistance above from the KUMO. The battle @ 14k ongoing.

No trade today according to the rules.
Nevertheless a Walzer is possible like yesterday - with a down/up pattern.

Good trades

Change in the DAX30

One change had been made yesterday:
Beiersdorf (NIVEA) gets out per today
and
Siemens Energy replaces its place.

In September 10 new companies will be integrated (as written above) to make the NEW DAX40.

Friday trade

Asia red this morning.
DAX started on the low of yesterday. Battle @ 14k...
btc$ lower @ 47k.
No important numbers, just US 14:30.
Now the companies with dark red numbers 2020 are showing their results: Lufthansa -6,7 Mia EUR!
Tendency today down over all: speech of Jerome H. Powell yesterday to the fear of rising interests in bonds - will not take any actions against this trend now.

Here a 1h chart until now:


edit 9:20 - battle @ 14k lost...

DAX short 9:30 to 14:30
entry @ 13932
exit @ 13988
result -56 points

edit 14:55 - 14k killed again - strong bullish

DAX new ATH

As mentioned above with Biden's US money flooding - the DAX jumped up this afternoon when US opened.
Means a new ATH @ ~14400.
This is the snake oil that smears the aching machine

Good trades!

Week 10 Results

This week had 5 trades

1 positive: + 50 points
4 negative: - 40 -14 - 21 - 30 points

Weekly total - 55 points

Yearly result: 1175 - 50 = 1120 points

A very unusual week with battles at new all time highs + a lot of political influence.
There is a high probability to see more "usual trades" again in the next week.

Monday trade

Catastrophic elections in Germany for the CDU (Conservative) in the 2 counties Baden-Württemberg and in Rheinland-Pfalz. Performing Winners are the Green Party in BW and the SPD in RP. The CDU is on a historic low. This year the country parliament election will be held in September. Obviously the people are not happy about the Slalom of the politics in the whole country.

Asia most green. btc$ on new ATH this weekend: killed the 60k.
Biden speech this evening (18:00 CET).
The US billion stimulus will have an impact also on European exports. Means a positive development on prices for the next months. Of course in the DAX this is mostly priced in already.

DAX started pre cash 7:30 with a thin gap up to Friday. Price is above 30m Kumo.
Looking forward to cash start and on IB. Gap seems to be closed now before cash start.
9:00 start within Friday range - price again lower than 30m Kumo.

DAX short 9:30 to 14:00
entry @ 14534
exit @ 14505
result + 29 points

....

GFIs1

edit 12:00 - probable goals @ 14435 or 14412

Those 14412 had finally been reached as announced on Friday with a low of 14409 one hour ago...
That was the turning point of today.

Good trades

Tuesday

The 30m chart of the DAX shows a corrupted wading thru the Kumo: instead of going up thru long Kumo it had reversed last day. This is often a signal for further short. The goals here are 14200 and/or a new battle at 14k again.
Watching this morning the development - before deciding to take a trade.

Thursday

DAX close (cash) gave a new ATH @ 14600 in positive awaiting no interest change in the USA. Pre cash opening jumped up more than 100 points to 14712 after the FED decision which decided as expected. Result - Dow Jones new ATH > 33k. btc$ @ 58k.
The DAX will test 15k in the next days.
ECB Lagarde will talk about the European marktes 9:00 and 12:00 CET.
Asia strong green: more than 1%.

No decision yet about a trade as we are in nowhere land right now.
IB already in first minutes above 14700.
Depending on the colour of IB a trade will be taken.

Thursday

Asia mixed.
EU - Lagarde speech 10:30. US GDP annualised 13:30 - no change awaited.
Germany - political problems of yesterday's new Corona restrictions over Easter and then taking back the decisions cause insecurity at the stock markets. There seems no plan in Germany on how to stabilize the economy during the Corona crisis. That seems the basis of the sideways moves during the last weeks.

Thursday day

DAX long 9:30 to 13:30
entry @ 14583
exit @ 14553 (SL) **
result -30 points

GFIs1

** the dark red 1h candle of 12:00 was after a speech of Jerome Powell who said if the US economy gets soon on the feet again, the interest rates must be examined again - meaning a rising interest out of the lows could be closer than the markets expected.

Friday

This week was not good - to much negative influence of German politics.
Looking to take a trade tomorrow.
Will trade next week eventually the last day of March on Wednesday. Otherwise in that Easter week we will find very low volumes - thus erratic moves are possible.

Good trades

Tuesday

After a long pause of the DAX a new trading is ahead. (Asia and US were trading yesterday).
Asian markets finished mixed as of the most recent closing prices. The Shanghai Composite gained 1.14%, while the Nikkei 225 led the Hang Seng lower. They fell 2.07% and 0.27% respectively.
btc$ battle still around 60k.
No important numbers or announced speeches today.

DAX started 8h with a strong up gap @ 15269. A new ATH!
Looks like the development caused by the massive money printing and some astonishing good quarter numbers of companies around the world (despite Covid) will lead the markets to higher levels. Still!

According to the development of IB (9:00 to 9:30) a trade will be taken by the rules.

Good trades!
GFIs1

edit 8:40 - killed already 15300 pre cash start
edit 9:20 - new ATH, IB red with a hi/lo until now of -106 points - still strong above high of last trading day
edit 11:00 - outlook on the development with a proper trend channel here:

Hi GFIs1

Nice job - I shorted that retrace up 3 times anticipating a move lower (obviously different method than yours), last one getting stopped out at the very top 15327!!!

I noticed from where you got in to that retrace high was 51 points, you must be using quite a large stop loss on occasion?

Cheers

Thanks @Market Sniper
You are right - there was a high probability that after the very long weekend (Easter) the start of the cash might be volatile. So every stop lower than 50 points would be in danger.
Watching my rules (there is one for a trade before a long weekend and the first trade after) I have a good experience with those "special" occasions.
As indicted the trade direction was good - after hours even better. So I am happy with the start into this new week.

Good trades

Wednesday

DAX made lower lows yesterday after hours.
This morning (7:30) the price reached 30m Kumo on the top.
Still a gap to yesterday and to last Thursday (opposite one).
Given a Wednesday trade the rule says short - so the gap to Thursday might closing today. Probability much higher than closing the gap above.

Asia mixed - not much movements to see.
btc$ @ 57k - still in battle @ 60k.

No important numbers or announcements - except FOMC protocol tonight @ 20:00

What is a gap defined by GFIs1?

There are many different versions of a "gap" in theory and used by traders

My version is simple:
• only cash prices count
• low or high intraday are the basis, not the last candle
• the last candle of cash hours is rarely relevant for a gap
• a never traded price (range gap) will mostly reached and is being closed - sometimes weeks later
• gaps are important in my rule set - as this event dictates different entry/exit times on the next trade.

PS: the down move was slower than expected - but some points more are at hand. My time rule still was good and I don't look back if the lowest point hasn't reached.

Monday

Asia green. Indexes on a high level. Some breathing after the rally seems obvious for the start in a new week.
btc$ made some strong profit taking on the high levels over the weekend.

DAX might make a consolidation phase today.

Why the DAX and other indexes are on the slip

Prices were getting weak - while China crossed with army planes the border of Taiwan again...

DAX went south back to the price before April of this year.

More movements now ahead!

Volatility is the base for trader's paradise. So stay tuned.

Illustration of the development of the DAX - with a important history

The DAX was sliding down...
Thanks to FIBO a nice TP was at hand! Even before the trade ended (see time stamp here).

New pic of the world right now: all important indexes red!
Nikkei made the flush down yesterday too!
btc$ stabilized on level 55k.

DAX on the retrace path (up) from a low during the night @ 14828 (!)
Price 8:00 - 14964.5 (2 points off my TP from yesterday), means
back to the 161.8% in the FIB

About strong movements on weekdays

Out of experience we can see that when on a Tuesday a high vola is to see then the next is on the Thursday.
Looking forward to see the counterpart to yesterday.
Traders like that much more than sideways moves.

Sunny trading days!
GFIs1

edit 19:15 - part of the rebounce came in the afternoon and after cash hours...
Some points up this week are still possible.

Hi @alfredillobl

Thanks for your vote!
Are you trading? Asian indexes? Other?
Would like to hear from your experiences - as those markets are far from my perception.
Thanks - and good trades!
