How many contracts do you put on during a given trade these days?

This thread is a one contract per trade scenario to see a fill at one price and to compare weekdays
over the year.
Hope this helps.

Dax short from 11:00 to 16:00

entry @ 7255

exit @

result

risk - medium

outlook - IFO numbers after 6 negative months now positive - expecting some cash-in today - price still in daily Kumo

GFIs1

I agree. I think you have good instincts. Some indicators begin to be negative - money flow, balance of power. Entered a little after you. If it holds maybe I'll consider staying in over the weekend.

Cheers,
Eyal

Today we have the last trading day in the DAX with a shortened time before a long weekend:
Low volume and some erratic movements do not allow to see this a normal last trading day of
the month.
Therefore no GFIs1 trade today. Protecting capital.

GFIs1

uptdate 10:30 - very low volume - only 10'000 contracts total

Looking back to the trades commented on futures.io (formerly BMT) since February and twittered from January
I am underlining some points where time and investment optimized are making sense.

First a look at the overall result:



Then a look at the cumulated result per weekday:



Optimizing the GFIs1 system could include following major points:
a) no trades on Tuesday and Thursday's OR
b) optimize the rules for these two weekdays
c) putting most weight on Wednesdays as the rule says 90% short
d) Trade only January to August...

Comparing the above results with the other futures.io (formerly BMT)- thread here




There is one final obvious point to consider:

Running GFIs1 Daily System the first 8 months - stop that one and switch all weight into
the Big Wave would have brought more than to follow the daily system for all 12 months

After all this year brought consistent wins.

Have a Happy New Year
GFIs1

Congrats to you for having such a consistent system generating these constant and profitable results !

Well, in hindsight it might have been the correct decision to switch over to your other trading system in September, but next year things may change and look quite different...

So, if you consider to make some adjustments to your trading days (we talked about that some time ago) for next year, you may improve even more.

But, bottom line you achieved some very good results, so just keep up your good work !

...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.

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.

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

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

Looking positively forward to the next weeks.

Two days without a trade to protect capital which was a good decision.

Unfortunately the reliability of derivatecheck.de is not that accurate!

Seeing price go through the ceiling from 09:30 I checked other resources like bloomberg.com
and saw that the numbers were out @ 10:00!

Good trades and a nice weekend too

Congratulation for the good result !

How did you evaluate friday`s econ news ?

Trading time was 9.30-16.30, longest time I have ever seen and trading into US- open.

At 14.30 some high impacting numbers were expected, as unemployment rate and non-farm employment change. Did you foresee the numbers ?

I started testing your trading, tried some finetuning, like trailing stops, but you are right, I didn`t get better results.

I must admit, I have no better ideas. (til now)

Keep on running your „GFIs1 1 DAX trade per day journal“

Thanks and good trades, rw48gmx...

Thanks @rw48gmx

Friday numbers were not important for a changing in price.
Instead the trend movement was weighing more - this time.
This is what my rule set says - after the last of the month
which was Thursday - the friday is a trending day.
That easy.

Good trades

Very long daily bar / candle of more than 200 points.

This means NO trade for Tuesday - as my rules are blocking intraday.
Some rebound today possible but dangerous.

The consolidation to 759x area (not yet touched) is the important point
before going to search for higher highs in this rally.

Looking forward to next high levels - support in the daily is still getting stronger
as discussed in earlier posts.

Here a look back (chart on the left) and today's daily:
Looks very good to hangle down the red spiral as posted earlier.
The bottom is not yet reached in this downleg as you can see in the left chart.
