Outlook to next week

Bullish moves seem to fade a bit - looks like some consolidation on this level
may happen - til' 7250 to find some support.
From there a new bullish scenario might take over.
All this is speculation out from a chart here - but highly possible.
Have a look! (sorry - second chart text faded too ;-) - said "Probable MOVE"!

Would you like to say something about stop losses in your system?

SL settings in this system

Hello @uexkuell

Thanks for the question - that system is very experimental. So I have not foreseen
stop loss markers - but in some cases as long as the original move may happen later
some buy in in the same direction. This case is showed with success in the first trade
where two cars ended quite positive.
Sure - a loss of 200 points is out of range but looking to get the most out of a given
situation is the goal.
Wishing to have a comparable result to my intraday daily system with fixed SL and
exact entry/exit times. For the last three weeks this one here was not to bad

Short closed

Dax closed @ 7405
result minus 10 points.

Looked like the TP for a short in a bullish up-trend was set to far...

Points since thread start: 388 points in 5 trades

Looking at this week

Price in the daily has reached fib - spiral resistance. (See chart
in message from september 14th)
This looks like some smaller volatilty for this last september week.
Waiting for a new setup to take a trade here - probably from next week though.

New Long

Taking a small opportunity - Dax long @ 7406 here.
Might give some points in this still bullish scenario.
