GFIs1 HighVola Dax Journal

This is a extension to the
https://futures.io/trading-journals/17862-gfis1-1-dax-trade-per-day-journal.html

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.

So I came to the
Rule for Dummies
which works exclusively during these extreme volatile days when market slips. ***
I named it: "The Wiener Walzer" which means 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
If you can count up to four - this thread is for you!

Like in the parent thread - the trades are always intraday. More important: Only 30 minute candle chart.

A daily trade depends on this special easy pattern.
Two trades to take. Time to stay in the market: 2 hours. (plus one hour to find the right pattern)
Exactly. Nothing more!
Let's waltz!
**Watch: 1 - 2
**Enter: 3 - 4 - Close
**Reverse direction enter: 1 - 2 - Close

Finished!

Now to the rules:
Important: Previous day(s) need to have a Hi/Lo day range of more than 150 points in the DAX. Otherwise NO TRADE!
1) Look at 30 minute candles.
2) Enter SHORT after 2 consecutive RED candles.
3) Close the trade exactly after 60 minutes
4) Enter immediately a new trade LONG
5) Close trade after exactly 60 minutes

GFIs1

*** TRIGGER for entry:
The body of the first candle in the fast market needs a BODY (open/close in the 30min.) of > 50 points.
Works in both directions. Then the waltz may begin!

NOTE to first readers: This thread is a JOURNAL. The trades are normally written here before taking.
All trades of one Walzer are packed in ONE post to make it more readable.
The trades are for educational live/backtest reasons and are never a trading recommendation.

Q & A

1) Is there a "overnight Walzer"?
If a signal comes on the last candle of the future and on next day it triggers a
Walzer signal - then:
NO there is no overnight Walzer

2) Is there a Walzer on ECB days?
On days when the ECB president is talking about ECB decision and explaining the
results - normally price might move erratically:
NO there is no Walzer because it can be triggered and lands in stop loss. Such
pattern is not given under normal circumstances.

3) Is there a Walzer on triple witch days?

On triple witch days some bigger market players might come in to bring prices to
their foreseen levels with quite some effect - normally price might move erratically:
NO there is no Walzer because it can be triggered and lands in stop loss. Such
pattern is not given under normal circumstances.

First Examples of Wiener Walzer

Here we jump into that pattern after above rules of the Wiener Walzer. Always 30 min. candles!
First TWO red candles have to be seen BEFORE entering the trade exactly to the 30 minute.
These are the 2 pre-steps of the Walzer: step 1 and step 2 each a red 30min. candle.

Then the trade starts with short step 3 and exit step 4
PLUS the countertrade to the same time as exit step 4
is entry step 1 long and exit step 2.
Total time in market: 1 hour short and 1 hour long for each combined trade.

In the following example we see 2 Wiener Walzer yesterday and one Wiener Walzer for today.
Total points can be seen in the upper right

Every Walzer was positive here. We have to check upcoming trades in volatile market moments
to confirm these easy rules.

Update :-)

Now I tried to top it up a bit (LOL).

Of course the opposite side was very tempting: The LONGS. Do they work?
Let's have a look.
And they do

These "trades" were not traded live - they are just the found patterns with the described rules.
Result:
With 2 days trading these rules - I would have gained more than 50% of the yearly total GFIs1
daily Dax gains. (Shhhh...) Of course I will take the trades when it is that easy.

See here the combined results:

Important:

As I named this thread a JOURNAL:

Upper posts were for testing and educational reasons..
Results shown have nothing to do with real trades and will not count anywhere.

From now I will post my daily trades when high volatility is seen exclusively in this thread.
With that concept we can understand the difference of lower vola rules (and results) versus
high vola rules. Will be very interesting indeed!
So with the first real trade it will be the intended JOURNAL.

Feel free to test it yourselves. Even on different instruments. You may report it here as well. Thanks!

For testing reasons: 1st second half trade announced

Here we go:
Long 19:30 @ 9488
exit will be 20:30 @ 9508
result + 20 points

This was taken after 4 times red candles

Seems still to work

That's great trading results so far GFIs1
Not many days on the DAX below 150 points High->Low , it's fantastic to trade it when looking for volatility. :-)

You are not using any stop-loss on these trades ?

Thanks @sharpshoota
This is a test drive - new model - colour still fresh :-)
For the stops I have to see.
So far I am happy that it works (worked).
Not sure about the next outcomes - and stops are then
only decoration.
There are for sure some guys out there to backtest this easy rule
and maybe find the best stop.
