This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.

Take care of you

Thanks!
Had a quick look back into last years march/beginning of april.
The amazing fact is that out of five weeks there were four
weeks with negative results.
Looks like march is shaky with these rules - as I have not
found any month with such dense negative results.
This might give a hint for future trading during march then.

GFIs1...
..how about:
negate all rules ONLY for that month here?

Dax short 10:30 to 14:30

entry @ 8003

exit @ 8033 SL

result minus 30 points

risk - medium

outlook - further rotating back to 7974

GFIs1

..still in troubled water

ouch!,

just one trader to another, I am sure hoping those aren't live points lost, because of the EUR/USD translation, such an amount is magnified almost 140%

say it ain't so....

The 7812 will be reached soon.
Then 7750 could be next little support.
Down-development as expected.

Good trades

Hi @kronie

Thanks for input - yes - 30 points SL means minus 750 Euro on the Dax future. This is
calculated (statistics) to be the best desaster stop in the intraday trading system here.
No panic - the gain this year is still positive (will post end of march result soon).
Looking back at last year's total result: please see posts no 537 and 538 in this thread.

GFIs1

Update 11:27h:
7812 reached (posted above) which means 1'800 Euro in plus right now.
The trade has not finished
