In this thread - originally discussing Dax Signals we are straight mixing up with
other instruments like the ES...
As this might stir up the concentration on only one instrument - the Dax here -
I suggest that I open a parallel thread to discuss signals for the ES with charts.
Of course this is only making sense if some readers are interested to discuss
more on the turning points in the ES.
Please comment in this thread about the need to separate the two - Thanks!

@GFIs1 Thanks for helping us with ES. Yes, parallel thread makes sense. You are right the slippage I noticed with initial setup was sometimes 3 to 4 days, since this is kind of a mean reversion method I expect that but maybe with your new rules it might help. What are the new rules?

Hi @bmtrading9

.. the new rule is to add a confirmation of a signal on the 1h like on the 3 min...

see what was in a earlier post:
" So I added a confirmation need rule on the 1h which works the same
as the 3min. rule."

Have a nice weekend

Seperation definitely makes most sense from a forum presentation view, also I think the two do show quite different behaviour regardless of underlying asset class correlations.

Thanks as always.

Travel Well

Hi GFIs1,

I would say that you should definitely split them. If my interest is anything to go by I like the focused "slim" approach that deals with the FDAX only. It is "trade and market" focused and not really method focused and many of us have our own methods but look at your threads for either confirmation or after the fact input.

Taking only the signals that were validated by the 60min in the chart following the rules described
in above posts - I am updating with a chart the bigger swing in the Dax as from April 15th to today here:

1st short taken on April 15th @ 7760
down to 7500 on April 23rd.
result: 160 points
1st long taken on April 23rd @ 7500
up to actual 8250 which is not the turning point right now - expecting some higher move..
result (part): 725 points
Total 885 points in two trades in a backtest... - so not realized

But the path seems to be good as we can see adequate in the HiLo ES thread.

Chart:

The turning point seems to be here soon.
In the 1h chart we have the situation that VWAP is entering the red Kumo.
Red Kumo is weakening and turning into blue Kumo. That means support
is weakening and the next down move can start right now.
As I am writing the price is already testing lower ranges in the day - but
waiting for a expected signal - highly probable in the afternoon will be
the moment to take action.

Exit @ 8259 (VWAP yesterday) which triggered the closing of the long
and to take a new short here.
Looks like price is diving earlier than expected (prev post)

Expected short signal - validated - on the 3 minutes came 14:05 @ 8320...
never mind - let some points on the table

Good trades
