Things are getting dicey that's for sure-need some large sellers to come in here and sweep out the longs but not looking good.
Stopped out. V frustrating day indeed.

17 tick range for the last 4 hours.

unlucky with your trade. coming off now. 1800 on the 06 bid.

Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

indeed, my TP1 wld have been hit. i am really struggling to trade in this - in hindsight having stops in 2 ticks short of the days highs perhaps an error - but thats my risk/reward & it was based on other PA.

i think i am done for the day trading the bund unless it breaks out.

Thoughts - range days / missed trade

When its a range day i have to just play the extremes, today there was one gd trade setup/outcome as per how i trade PA (looking in hindsight) & it was buying 03s as per the chart - i didnt take it though.....which says it all, perhaps. tbf it was only there for a second, i wld have had to have left the order in & price accelerated fast towards it.

i am going to trade with smaller targets & tighter stops in this sort of mkt, play extremes for normal targets. and just survive & hopefully liquidity & flow returns sometime soon.

in addition, homework for tonight is to look at other estoxx, es mini, & gilt. & theres a free webinar on late tonight 9.30 uk time.

I am done for the day -38 ticks, will post review tmrw morning. A tough day trying to squeeze smthg out of a very dry mkt.

Going to paper trade the gilt tmrw, charts look ok.

the global hunt for ROI....

.....just heard an interesting anecdote about someone working on the portfolio desk at UBS, and last week he had clients instructing him to 'buy anything with liquidity' in euro stoxxs. Wow.

Ignoring the quality analysis by the institutional buyers [sarc], this must be a brokers wet dream.

It's very easy to spot a ranging day after the fact isn't it! I/we need to learn how to spot one whilst it's actually happening.
Not a good day for me either yesterday-was concentrating on bund and my set Eurostoxx set up occurred (the trapped Delta one)-albeit it was not as clear a signal. Grrrr.

Yup one hell of an ascending triangle right now on bund-lots of trapped sells if it pops higher too
