DAX Short 9916, reason days highs are near, SL 9928 so -12, 2nd position if required.


back to 9900 area easy LOL


I shoulda been paying attention and got long @9898 jumped on this little up move but hey, WORK gets in the way


Nearly down 1 weeks wages on the week with only 2 losing trades made, 7% of account so within Spec pretty much,


going up again, and YES the right way finally LOL at this time we should just chop into the close.


Close 9909 +7 Reason well I suck LOL also this is the bottom of the inner range, where I should go long with a pause ( as it goes lower LOL )


Need a few more days and a lot more sleep to get back in the game, atleast the markets are moving again

Lets stop being a WUSS, Long 9907, lets see with money on the table IF I get my upward continuaton.


SL 9898, 2nd pos at 9904 area MAYBE bit danger tight, but we'll see.


2 positions and quick run to new high would get me even on the week, ( FAT Chance )

Chart of where I should of been trading.


Basically, trading pull backs with a 17sma / 60sma cross at the moment, pull backs defined as a distance from the 17sma.

1 loser around 13:00 when the trend changed, that will always happen ofcourse.




Business, might be taking another nail towards bankruptcy, so must focus and stop slacking.

9911 reversed for some pips just, shoulda taken that

9911 entry I missed, went 15pips, woulda done me.


Lets done some testing, back a few months, just DAX!!


5 Mar 2014, some possible losing setups, but many many profitable setups.

6 Mar 2014, kinda slow ( news ) then a VERY fast move, should of been okay but ???? hard to call objectively.

7 Mar 2014, Strong downtrend, 70 pip profit in minutes, errrr yeah CRAZY day, 180pip move.

Market was STRONG back then, like crazy strong, back when I was risking 15 and making 60 on GA, since then, no real progress 80pips of account highs here -12% area


This week looks good for the method, but it was tweaked to work in current conditions, so guess it should for a while.

Holding woulda gotten me 34 area so +27 on the 1, nearly got account to new highs easy as.


Gold performed well today, but spread makes it tricky anything other than strong moves just aren't worth it, 10pip range, 4 - 5 pips spread - in accuracy = 2 pips if your lucky for risking 20.

GA although similar atleast it has a 15-20pip range, 3 pips spread


dump gold ?? tricky!!


Getting better

Current method / chart setup looks more than good enough, time to start upping my trading and making some $$$'s.


Works on all market conditions I can see scrolling back as far as DAX is concerned, not tested GA / Gold yet, but a glance looks ideal.
