As the 7000 had been passed (was no longer a strong resistance)
I assume to see our first TP soon be reached.
Depending on how fast we reach the first TP - we might "let run" the
second long above the second TP.
This decision is foreseen for end of today or tomorrow. Expecting
a reverse pricing on Wednesday.

GFIs1

TP Decision for the second car - 7130 :-)
Either that region will be reached tomorrow - or the trade will be
closed tomorrow evening - as expectation of a reversal on Wednesday
is still valid.

Looks like the ambitious TP (of 7130) can not be reached now
Anyway - to forget about the not taken TP2 (@ 7050 which would have been filled yesterday)
we need to get out of the trade with the least damage:
This will happen between 21:00 and 21:30 tonight.

Second car closed @ 7015
result plus 103 points (7015-6912)

First car plus 44 points

Total points for first trade (2 cars): 147 points

Comment: previewed TP's were very good set - the
higher target for car 2 did not play out (lost 35 real points on this one)

GFIs1

Outlook wednesday - some retracement as described
No trade for this move previewed now.

Took a Dax long @ 6898 after that nice retracement from this afternoon.
Looking for some quick points on the "polish day" - the LAST of the month
tomorrow.

If that bullish Dax move works liked planned - a TP of 6996 is set for today.
With this a result of 98 points is in view.

The third trade is the first SHORT trade here:
Took a Dax short @ 7000.
Lets see how it plays out...

A nice down move going on here..
Let's put a TP @ 6830 - either filled or needing to manually
close the trade.

edit: time window for TP til' wednesday evening
