New Walzers to watch

As price is now (nearly definitely) out south of Kumo - the rules allow
to watch for new Walzer patterns again.
For sure we should watch Monday and Wednesday carefully.
Let's see!

Another one

Today the markets are reacting on Greece again...

Quick upmove with very high volume this morning.

Walzer starts

exit 10:00 @ 11390
result +59 points

entry short 10:00 @ 11391
EDIT: as the 10:00 candle was still green - I will prolong the short 30 minutes.. :-)
exit 11:30 @ 11382
result +9 points

Total: 68 points

Stop Loss

Cheers,

thanks a lot for your excellent strategy. I've read the entire thread during the w-end and will now start with forward testing. I am somehow lost on your stop loss approach - is it a moving target, sometimes 20, 30 or even more ticks?

In addition, where could I get the indicators for Kumo clouds?

I otherwise hate dancing, but this Waltz of yours is making me extatic...

Kind Regards,

Quixil

Hi @Quxil

Stop is normally 30 points..
But if pattern is not playing out - I do not make the second part of the Walzer.
As you can read in some posts.

The KUMO or cloud is part of the ICHIMOKU Kinko Hyo indicator. It is a
japanese indi with quite a lot of information. For my decision if to take
a trade or not - I am only using the cloud information in the daily chart.

Hope this helps

Thanks GFIs1,

firstly congrats for another winner today! I just want to be sure I understand you right - if you go long and you get two consecutive 30 min red bars, but you were not stopped (e.g. 30 ticks), you still don't "dance" the second part of the Walzer and go short?

Thank you!
