  • 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.

Half year comparison of both systems

While the first 6 months were very shaky and always danced around the
10000 points in the DAX the two systems with journals here were performing
very differently:

The GFIs1 1 Dax trade per day system:

Result: -14 points
Trades taken: 63
Best week: 201 points
Best trade: 110 points


The GFIs1 Walzer system:

Result: 740 points
Full Walzer taken: 10
Half Walzer taken: 13
Total Walzer taken: 23

Best Walzer made 176 points on 11th of January 2016

Walzer?

I was asked why the long Walzer signal @ 11:30 was not taken:
Because first strong up candle started in Kumo.

There may be a short Walzer in the afternoon - depending on US start.

Good trades

July

No Walzer occured in July.

Walzer result since week 1 2016: still 740 points

GFIs1

PS:
1) System still works well
2) Expecting rising volume from mid August which should result in more Walzer patterns

Hi,

first candle's body (9:00) was only 33 pts. < 50. Why to take the walzer on the third (10:00) candle?

thanks,
alex

About movements in low volume...


Yesterday started with low volume and gave some interesting moves - made by
market boosters with no resistances.
Today EZW numbers 11:00h made a spike of 77.5 points up in the 30m candle.
But then it was finished and price is coming back.

Rule of thumb:
1) in low vol weeks - Walzers are not easily formed
2) quick spikes are not base for a pattern
3) remember the previous day rule with range

Good trades
GFIs1
