Hi @Heart

Thanks for input. You have calculated fine ;-)
To clarify - 10 days before rolling over contracts (triple witch day) the wiggle room normally
is higher than normal. Therefore my "normal" stop room expands by 10 points - means
40 points - up until rolling over day. I am sorry not having mentioned this here again.
You will find this earlier in this thread plus discussions accordingly. I think to have mentioned
the higher movements already last week (means including SL settings).
After rolling over the stops are set to the "tighter" 30 points "normal" settings as usual.
Hope you did not have troubles out of this.

Good trades
GFIs1

PS: Anyway - the foreseen short was not coming - as price is still in the 1h Kumo...
So we need to sit this out

Right now

..Some downtrend seems to continue (morning call was a little bit too early ;-) )
Seeing 8066 to have as low of today goal - tomorrow some conso
and Friday:
further down.
Seems a realistic scenario on the Dax..

Looks like 8000 is history for some time.

Friday trade

Dax long 09:30 to 13:30

entry @ 8154

exit @ 8114 (SL) - low was 8111

result minus 40 points

risk - medium (40pts ;-) )

outlook - above scenario was wrong - looks like price is heading to 8212 area again

Will have a look into RollOver weeks to avoid losses...

Hi @GFIs1,

I am just curious, 8151,57 is the high from the years 2000 + 2007 and the entry price is 188 points above yesterday´s low.
Any concerns about that and especially, that yesterday´s DAX range exceeded the 150 points barrier?

Hi Abde

I was concerned too this morning for that Friday trade - 30mins. signals were contradictory with 1h signals in
the same chart... so some indecision is normal.
I was not so concerned about the yesterday's movement (gap included) as I am only looking at range of the
cash hours 09:00 to 17.30 - and there the range was 144 points according to my smart calculator in the chart:

Week 24 result


This week had two negative trades

First ( minus 8 points)
Second (minus 40 points )

Weekly total minus 48 points

Points since week 2 2013 now 368

Was not as previewed and SL hit on Friday was 3 points above low of the day

Looking forward into RollOver week - trades as normal - Dax future I will trade Monday
and Wednesday as normal - changing on Thursday to the September contract.
For those who think vola is too high and unpredictable: stay out next week.
