Even the volatility in the last weeks was great - NO real Walzer patterns occured.
Looks good for the next 3 months that with more normal trading days some
Walzer shows up again.
Greece theme is no longer a threat - now other players like China or Germany
are on the focus.

Good trades

461 point range in ONE day

The above mentioned last support has not held.
So a very special red day to mark for this year : 461 points range!

Now the downmove shows some momentum that the bottom
has not been reached yet.
Instead the 10K will be for longer far...

NEXT goal 9338

Good trades

Trade of 24/9

Hi, just two questions for your 24/9 trade:

First the body of the first candle (10:30) was 41 pts<50 which is your mark. (high-low was greater). Did you take the trade outside your rule, or have you changed the rule for the waltzer?

Second, with what criteria you skipped the second leg (long) of your system? Ok, it was a little bit obvious that the market will not rebound on 12:30. Was it feeling, or some special rule I am not aware of.

Furthermore, congratulations for your patter recognition ability and your overall approach for dax trading.

My only remark is that you may consider closing partially your winning position earlier (on some critical technical point maybe), in order not to leave too many points on the table at the end of time.

regards,
alex

Trade Thursday 24 sep

Hi @alexk1968

Well seen: I was only taking 11:00 to 11:30 candle and jumped in 30 minutes to early...
That candle was the trigger.
Not really a change of rules - but a "mistake" in time on my side ;-)
Taking the "right red candle" - had given some more points.
Was a bit under pressure with phone calls that morning.

Second: As we had most volatile times with high volume - I have seen that the last four Walzers
did not work on second leg. This was my decision to get out on time when some points were still
on the table. Just to two posts back on my summary - the Walzer was crippled in all attempts.

I hope of course that the normal situation is back soon and the "turning point" for the second leg
will hold.
In fact that a move (body >50 points) is showing a trend for some candles to come.
As long gains are there - I will not change anything here.

Good trades
GFIs1
