  • 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.

Another pattern on Friday

This friday we had after a strange upmove from thursday and a strong
dive in the afternoon (US numbers).

The Wiener Walzer worked perfectly again (I missed that one live)

Started with
1) 15:30 9836 to 9737 (99 points) SHORT 1
2) 16:00 9737 to 9709 (28 points) SHORT 2
3) 16:30 9707 to 9688 (19 points) ENTRY
4) 17:00 9688 to 9622 (66 points) Exit and Entry LONG
5 and 6) 17:30 to 18:30 9622 to 9671 (49 points)

The short and the long gave a result of 134 points.
Hopefully some readers of the thread could profit!

A short update

..on the trades viewed in this journal.
Amazing to see the gain per combined trade as average over all trades taken: +112 points **

So it is worth to wait for right setup and Take the points.

Optimizing rule set


We can see that not all trades ended optimal:
The 6th 30min could be skipped - sometimes.
Speaking of the Short/Long combination.
I am testing a trigger for this setting now.
Like: If 3rd candle (our entry) does not have a body of more than 30 points
then get out 30 minutes earlier on the long. Would save some minus points
in the last half hour.

New long possibility?

10:30 to 11:00 had 84 points.. (long)
next candle started green too
Now let's wait for 11:30 to hop on or not.

very thin though
1) entry long 11:30 @ 9792
2) exit long 12:30 @ 9803 (+11 points)
3) entry short 12:30 @ 9803
4) exit short 13:00 @ 9813 (-10 points) - was nearly sure after the near Doji on the second candle

new rule for a shorter second leg...

lets see the exit 13:30 to compare
4) exit short 13:00 @ 9795 (+8 points) A total of 19 points in the combined but...

OK: the setting on 2nd candle was already dead..
Making some points or losing: it is not really of interest to jump in when we see a broken trend.

Hello GFIs1,

My 10:00-10:30 candle is red. Is something wrong with my data provider or just a mistake on your side?

Thanks,
tradingMark
