DAX long closed 13:30 @ 6903
Result plus 25 points

Goal was to trade the most probable winning trade for a Thursday morning
and to collect those points. Today we have left some points on the table - yes.
In the long run this only shows that the rules were ok for this day.

Hi TenCent

This was the rule for Thursday - which is a extract out of statistics for movements of the Dax on a Thursday.
More background to this you can find on linnsoft.com page under the theme "homeworks" (Thanks to FT71
and Chad).
As I pointed out - the trade is not taking a full legs length - but takes the most probable positive points
to succeed. So the risk is minimized by not letting a trade to be shaken by big numbers or by the overlapping
time when the US exchange starts.
This way we may increase our exposure (by percentage) and instead having a lower risk profile during the day.
The second positive argument is that you can let the trade develop itself without to be online to watch "signals"
as we know the exit point at entry time. The exit can thus be easily automated and has not to be under
the permanent control by the trader. To minimize risk our stops are evident too.

GFIs1

PS: To minimize the postings here on this forum I tend to place one post to preview the daily trade and one post
with result plus eventual answers to questions. The entry level and the exit level you may get real time on my
twitter account with the same name.
