Don't give...

...back your morning gains in the afternoon. So often heard
Looking at our Dax movements of today in a very low volume session (<50K before US opened)
we see moves without a clear direction.
It is always tempting to jump right in - where no real signal can be seen.
Easy to lose a lot - instead of keeping the gains in hand and protecting capital.

US following the down trend

After the above described uncertainty of direction - suddenly the breakout came
and made everything clear - direction more south.
Difficult to see the trend clearly. Most obvious was that a breakout out of the rectangle
will happen:

In fact for our setup in this thread with only morning starts such a trade was out of discussion.

Some Homework on the Daily

Question is often - how many consecutive days are to be seen if a trend is on its way.
Thanks to a chart by Chad from Linnsoft I was quenching out the data for the Dax.
Now - if you think back to the last 4 months - how many days in ONE direction were to be seen?
Four, Five, Six, Seven or more days?
Have a look here:

Answer is five on the short and six on the long side.

I am following this thread, thanks for sharing your journal.

Could you please explain how you choose entry and exit times?

Todays trade is risk conflicting because there is green 30 minute candle at the open whereas the probability that the DAX goes down on Wednesday is high. Is that correct?

What is the stop loss today? is it 10? Thank you.

Hi @bkk888

Thanks for your Input.
Stop I had set today to 10 - correct.
Entry time (as well exit) is earlier today - rule after two previous short days.

Good trades

Week 2 result


This week had five trades

Three positive and two negative trades:

Positive (13+ 16 + 28 points)
Negative (-30SL - 15 tight SL)

Total weekly result plus 12 points

Left some points on the table - ECB decision day was bad.

Looking positively forward to the next weeks.
