Wiener Walzer

First drop (a heavy one). Looking at Open/Close per 30 minute candle here:
red 1) 12:00 to 12:30: 11966 to 11800 ---> 166 points ***
red 2) 12:30 to 13:00: 11800 to 11798 ---> 2 points

entry short 3) 13:00 @ 11798
exit 4) 14:00 @ 11784
result 1: 14 points

entry long 1) 14:00 @ 11784
exit long 2) 15:00 @ 11808
result 2: 24 points

Total points 14 + 24 = 38 points

*** Volume was 30K plus in these 30 minutes (sic!)
and of course took out a lot of SL

A new pattern occurred on Monday

As on Friday we saw a special slip - today we had to check for a Wiener Walzer in the morning again.

It worked like a charm:
1) after a green 9h candle of 60 points
2) entry long 10h @ 11835
3) exit 11h @ 11868 (result 33 points)
4) entry short 11h @ 11868
5) exit 12h @ 11864 (result 4 points)

Total points today: 37

Good trades - looking for a normal SHORT on Wednesday..

With PAT also at a critical point, the timing of the Wiener Walzer trade could prove nearly ideal:

Congrats on the short part! Really nice systemic result.
The long part is a little harder (imo), because a sweeper
down - e.g. to 11830 - is still missing.

Thanks!
Still looking to see price down 11620 area - very soon.

But still conviced on this pattern trade:
Will publish next the results of the Wiener Walzer trades in a sheet
from December last year to now (5 months).

Nice service
(Although I already have a positive impression about the pattern which
won't be shattered by minor sweeps which trigger a stop from time to time.)

Walzer results update

After 4 months since mid december 2014 I caught some trades after high vola days
with the discussed method in this thread.

What I learned:
1) On days with ECB or IFO numbers - some patterns start - but give negative points.
NEW RULE ADD: NO trade on ECB or IFO day!

2) I have not taken all possible patterns - as they can occur when I am not watching the Dax.
There are possibilities in the evening (after cash hours) too.
So the shown results are exclusively the ones I announced in my threads.

3) For such a easy to set up system it is quite good performing. Means that I get cumulated
results in nervous markets that are much higher than in my normal 1 trade Dax thread.

4) What is most important: that both systems work together very well.

The results:
I took 18 trades in these 4 months - some days more than one Walzer.
The total points overshoot now the normal yearly result in the other thread (which is ~1050 points)
62.4 points per trade gave a total of 1124 points.

Comment: Steady points and little drawdown with very little time effort - is much welcomed - especially by @ratfink

Fantastic results! Most important single rule is that your best weeks are when I am on holiday. I am pondering how to make best use of this.

Travel Well
