Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Cash hours or...

The question about trading time of this system here versus to the original GFIs1 one Dax:

Here it is a basic pattern finding. That can be traded throughout the full time the future is
traded: from 08:00 to 22:15.
One example is some posts up - where I announced one trade realtime.

Of course in the parent thread the trading hours are strictly cash hours and will not change.
But be aware - as I am not prolonging here screen time too much - there will be situations
I do not follow and therefore might miss a opportunity.
As you know how to dance it yourself (counting 1 - 2 - 3 - 4) it will be easy though

This is a extension to the
https://futures.io/trading-journals/17862-gfis1-1-dax-trade-per-day-journal.html

FOR ALL that are not familiar with my DAX journal - PLEASE READ that one before you ask here.

As the rules in mentioned GFIs1 thread are not allowing a trade on all days - especially in high volatility phases -
I was searching for a method to squeeze some more points out of the nice moves with high vola.
AND: to not let too much money on the table.

@GFIs1,
I really enjoy following your other journal and this new one for those "other days" looks like a good start! It looks like a good way to profit from those crazy zig-zag days. Thank you for this new journal and I look forward to seeing the results!

@GFIs1,
Am I missing something with the strategy? it is not volatile today before the FOMC news at 2000 or CPI report at 1430, which doesn't mean that I did not trade .

The 2 previous days were too volatile to trade a normal wednesday Dax trade today.
So I am looking for jumping in into some slipping moves.
Today FED 20:15h, Friday a magnet on 9600 area (for CFDs et al)
We might see some some "strange" jumps.
But of course the volume is not to compare with the 3 previous days.

@GFIs1,
I want to make sure that I did not give the wrong impression, I was trading my own plan this morning and not following yours. I create my own trade recommendations . Perhaps I should have provided more detail in my posting. I was just curious over the entry on a morning of low volatility because I thought the strategy was for high volatility. But you have now answered my question. I am interested to see how this story develops!

Good Trades!
JohnS

Thanks @JohnS
Your input is great - I was only telling some thread readers that this "Walzer adventure" is still not ripe to
just jump in. It will be very interesting to where it leads though.
