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.

Hello Anas,
Does it mean you entered short at 7000, and your Stop Loss at 7730?

Eyalor8


Hi Eyalor8

Sorry! I saw your question late but the answer is no longer valid.

DAX was at 7700 and I proposed a short at this level with a stop at 7730.

Dax short 09:30 to 13:30

... outlook - 8K is a heavy barrier - some conso before US numbers this afternoon

GFIs1

edit: without any direction from the start

Two interesting things were to see on that particular day:
1) Price was sitting under the 8K psychological barrier. In the morning very little volume was to see.
2) No distinctive direction

After US numbers - boom - Volume came in and price was moving fast to make a new high on this leg.
End of the day the daily volume was back to normal. Price range was 177 points (which leads us to
skip Monday's trade).
Review on this trade:
a) it was good to adjust the stop loss (tighter) under condition of 8K barrier, US numbers and uncertainty
b) trade hit the SL
c) we missed the great upspike after US numbers - which would be the same under normal conditions too..
d) preview of the day (quote above) was on the good side -
So the loss of 15 points here does not change our result heavily. The risk management was good in this case.
