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


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.
