  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

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

Tuesday trade

Futures Edge on FIO
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.

Update in the daily

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.

Hi GFIs,

Your exit must be at 7560...


Best trade intraday ever?
