DAX
Up day.

TecDAX
Moving up, new high. Orders unchanged. SL(abcd) 788; TP(c) 810. TP(a) 807.

Dow Jones
Up day.

S&P 500
Up day.

Nasdaq 100
Up day.

SMI
The pending stop buy order from Friday has not been executed. Long entry would be possible, but only with a bad risk-reward-ratio.

I‘m still staying out of stocks for now.

DAX
Up day.

TecDAX
Up day. Positions (a) and (c) closed at their take profit levels for profits of +3.38 R and 2.75 R, respectively. Stop losses remain unchanged: SL(bd) 788.


Dow Jones
Up day.

S&P 500
Up day.

Nasdaq 100
Up day.

SMI
Up day.

All Ordinaries
I‘ll include the All Ordinaries index from now on.

Stocks
WDC. Retracement back to support. Seems a bit risky, because the previous bullish bar didn‘t have any follow through, but only a bearish inside bar. Buy(ab) STP 42.75 LMT 42.80; SL(ab) 41.45; TP(a) 44.70.


SO. Standard setup. Short(ab) STP 45.80 LMT 45.75; SL(ab) 46.20; TP(a) 45.20.

Hello @Sawyer,
one question about the way you search potential stocks candidates, do you use a ProRealTIme screener? Or is It done manually?

Great thread, Thank you.

DaveTrading.

I'm using a simple ProRealtime screener:
 
Code
clong=low<average[10](close) and high>ExponentialAverage[20](close) and close>average[50](close) and average[50](close)[1]>average[50](close)[2]
cshort=high>average[10](close) and low<exponentialaverage[20](close) and close<average[50](close) and average[50](close)[1]<average[50](close)[2]

criteria=close
SCREENER[clong or cshort] (criteria AS "close")
I don't have any experience with ProRealtime's programming language, so that was the best I could do. Seems to work fine. I screen the "US Tech 150" and "US Non-tech 200" plus the German indices.
