DAX
Second down day.

TecDAX
Second down day. SL(ab) 780; TP(a) 807.

Dow Jones
Third down day; long entry possible.

S&P 500
Third down day; long entry possible.

Nasdaq 100
Third down day; long entry possible.

Im not going to open a position in one of the US indices, because the counting of the correction days is a bit weak (first down day was also an up day), so I want to see a stronger pullback.

DAX
Third down day. RSI-7 weekly is above 70, so Im not going to take any long trades here.

TecDAX
Nearly stopped out, but the low was 780.25. Uptrend is still valid, long entry is possible, weekly RSI-7 is 61. The (ab) position is still open; theres a valid setup, so Ill open another position: Buy STP(cd) 788; SL(cd) 780; TP(c) 810. SL(ab) 780; TP(a) 807.

Dow Jones
Down and up day.

S&P 500
Down day.

Nasdaq 100
Down and up day.

Long entries would be possible in all three US indices, but the risk reward ratio wouldnt be good enough.

DAX
Down day.

TecDAX
Up day. There's no clear trend to catch, so I'm playing safe, i.e. I'm drawing all stop losses closer to the break even of the (cd) position. SL(abcd) 788; TP(c) 810. TP(a) 807.

Dow Jones
Inside day; ignore.

S&P 500
Up day.

Nasdaq 100
Inside day; ignore.

SMI
Im including the Swiss Market Index from now on. Fifth down day today. A long entry is possible, but the risk reward ratio is not good enough.

Stocks are still not a good play, as the markets arent moving in any clear direction.
