  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

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!

Quixil


.. to be clear: the FIRST BODY of a candle needs to be >50 points.. the second one in the same color.
Then entry for two candles in the SAME direction - and TURN around for another 2 candles...

Stops I need only on first Walzer step.. - if it turns away I am out and do not take the second step.

Another one II


A green candle of 79 points from 15:00 started - a second green candle

Walzer II
entry long 16:00 @ 11392
exit 17:00 @ 11470
result 78 points

entry short 17:00 @ 11469
EDIT: prolonging 30 minutes - as 5th candle was green too
exit 18:30 @ 11463
result 6 points

Total points: 78 + 6 points = 84 points

********
Points today

68 (trade I) + 84 (trade II) = 152 points

Comment:
very strange day with a max. Dax up of 4% !!! Crazy!!!
And all this ONLY driven by little Greece...
Obviously the DAX is reacting very much on political influence.

Congrats, it seems you'll have two very strong winners. Do you expect a difficult day tomorrow after 4% move today?

Cheers GFIs1,

what is the trigger for you to do both in the same day - one a day trade & the Walzer?

Thanks again for your wisdom.

Best Regards,

Quixil

1) This is easy: Walzer is done if previous day has a range of >150 points.. no upper limit..
2) And GFIs1 One trade per day - is above 250 points range of previous day as normal.
So we have a VERY rare occasion - to have both triggers running :-)

a new one end of day..

Looks like a new walzer is waiting to be danced:

Dax short
entry 17:00 @11366
exit 18:00 @ 11336
result 30 points

long
entry 18:00 @ 11336
exit 19:00 @ 11330 (18:30) pattern broken
result -6 points

Total points: 24

Important: Price is in daily Kumo - extreme high volume at this moment (after cash closing)
Normally no trade in Kumo...

ETH, Friday evening, price in Kumo - something for very ambitious dancers.
At least the ES pushes
