Hi Rosho, nice to see someone making a Bund journal. I hope all will work out as desired. It's been a hard battle trying to get backed with no "live" STIRS trading experience for me, so I'm currently working towards getting enough capital together to trade for myself. I have been trading Bund, Bobl, Shatz and Euribor in sim before with orderflow, both outright, spread and flys, so no charts etc. I look forward following your journey

Hi BenG, thanks for the kind words, its gd to know there are some FI traders about.

Are you trading spreads or outright? I dont have bobl or shatz charts or ladders up (IB plays up with more than 3 ladders, & you only get bid/offer quote if you want more) but i know they dont move much.

I wouldnt be too concerned about focusing only on STIRs, you may find you are more suited to other markets. If you get 6 months of live trading regardless the market with consistent results that should be enough to get backed by a prop firm, though the profit share maybe circa 50%.

Trade setup Long

This looks nice buy area @ 80s esp as M5 has been making HHs & HLs & this area will fall cose to upper trend line on the M5....again will wait to see what happens (i need to have this as a signature hmm).

re sell set up: the failure of this upward move to make new swing highs at 99s is better for the potential sell i posted at 05s. i wld like price to hang around mid 90s then spike up into 05s looking for quick rejection of new swing high. if this doesnt happen, then 13-14s is my next sell area.

my analysis prob reads as v jumbled, my fault in explaining myself. i will look to summarise these over the weekend.

and why didnt i trade it? i popped out for 5mins for some lunch, you cld only have sold 4s, but a limit order wld've been filled. the 10tick target is reached already. tbh the PA congestion went on for a bit long, so I possibly wld have sat out anyway.

next areas still the same short @ 13-14s; long @ 80s.

long setup 98s

potential long setups 98s - but aint going to to take as needed it to spend more time higher (time & some space away from the level is preferrable for me).

nice reaction off the 98s, but the lower highs (LHs) on the M5 wld have me worried - the trade r:r on setup doesnt look great with that prev PA which i should have noticed before posting the setup (though i did mention time & space).

its currently trading 2s & i wld have moved my SL to price entry. my TP on these intradays when PA is more congested & non directional wld always be 10 tick move (trading 2 lots - so 20tick profit if poss, with perhaps tighter stop).

big bit of support at 90s, which if breaks wld be the TP for the 80s long - which isnt much room.......so i am out of this.

Edit: its broke & come down aggressively - which is what i like.....but i am leaving it.

Next setup long 72-73s

this was nice support prior @ 11.55 am (a great setup i missed), but the move away (space & time) is big which brings this back into play for a potential long.

lets wait & see. been some lovely PA in the bund today.

Edit: next setup shorts - if price stays late 70s/low 80s will look to sell @92s. time & space again.
