  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • 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.

Hello GFI,
Thanks. I think that whoever thinks losses can be avoided lives in a dream land.
But on a day like today aren't you tempted to take another trade, for instance, now that the market is much higher and the odds for a reversal are high?

Much Success

Of course a pullback / conso is highly probable.
There is a daily rule, ONE trade and a SL setting. If the SL is touched - no problem - over all the negative trades
are not making a big drawdown. Therefore waiting til' the markets*** are going back to normal is most of the time
not a bad idea.
So for this thread a new trade is waiting for us soon ;-)

***near a psychological mark like 8'000 movements can get out of control and normal behaviour.

Good Trades

Maybe. But the problem today was the strong bullish opening, which for me is a contra-indication for an early short. Preservation of capital. So today I'll pass.

Week 10 result

This week had three trades:

two negative (-30 - 6)
one neutral (0)

Weekly result minus 36 points
Total points since January plus 267

The week was negative despite the very bullish scenario to reach a new yearly high
as well as to pass 8000 in the Dax.
Result is very clear when seeing time shifting for entering markets intraday at such
important landmark points in the chart.

Outlook - markets have reached new levels - will go back to normal - and the system
will work again as usual.

For what its worth, recent history shows that after a leg of such magnitude (more than 5% from the low on Monday) there may come a period of some consolidation and choppiness wherein we will probably see at first some modest retracements (Monday and maybe Tuesday), a retesting of the highs (maybe on Tuesday afternoon), and then some more serious pullbacks starting on Wednesday. This is however history not fact so take it with a grain of salt

Much Success
