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!

..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.

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.

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.

Developing on the 9:30 candle green: could be the attack of 10K again
Alarm of >50 points body
Aggressive volume >15K on first green candle

1) 9:30 to 10:00 (49.5 points)
2) 10:00 to 10:30 confirmation long (20.5 points)
3) entry 10:30 @ 9876.5
4) exit 11:30 @ 9900
gain 23.5 points
stopped here as the setup is no longer valid
so no short..

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
