Hi @GFIs1,

Can I ask you what´s the actually reason is for not taking a trade the day after a Hi/Lo of more than 150 points?
Another question that I have is regarding Thursday short days. Have you made a statistic how often they percentaged occur? Thanks for sharing.

After a rally up or down - the normal GFIs1 rule set is "out of order" - this is why a protection starts the day after.
If the rally is around 250 points (which happened last year) then a two day stop is active. In the long run you will
see the positive effect of that "no trading".
Short day is normally wednesday - with more than 90% occurences intraday. On Thursdays I have no preference.

Hello GFIs1,
Thank you very much for your posts and excellent results. For today, my stop was at 7638 in future dax . And this level has been touched on my CQG plateforme at 10h12 am. Have you put a stop at 30 or 33 points ? if 33 points, could you tell us in the morning, please ?

Hi @Traine

Normally I am stating medium risk which means 30 points SL. As I started the trade - five points were seen in
the first seconds at 09:30 in the wrong direction. This alerted me and I had the SL moved to 33 points from the
entry point (rare exception).
I checked the volume at the high price of 7638 and I could see only 28 contracts dealed at this high price.
So for the lucky one the SL might not have been touched.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Lumir.

I am fine with Interactive Brokers - first it is a US company with enough capital - stocks at the US exchange
and a seat in Switzerland which is for quick questions during european hours very helpful.
But I am sure you will find a bunch of brokers in Central Europe to trade Dax futures, CFDs or options.
Just have a look at margin, commissions and spreads - comparing your chosen instrument with different brokers
will save you a lot of money.

Thank you very much for your answer. Eventually, could you add the level of the @stop at the same time than the @entry, in the morning ? it'll be very confortable for us. have a nice Week end.
