Hello shrekchenbin,

I'm really interested in your technique on the dax future. I'm not an expert trader ( maybe I miss something here and there ) but can you please explane how do you find the Bias using the higher time frames? I mean: How many days do you look behind and what time frames do you use?
Dax is really a beast in term of volatility and find bias and TPO is something that I want to learn in a consistent way because in the past I made so many errors with following wrong entries.

About DAX volatility: Have you seen again this evening what a movement around 21:00 (today 4/3 european time) ?

Thanks in advance!

David

Hi David,
Thanks for your interest in this thread.
The bias is established by seeing where we are trading relative to yesterday's value area -- above bullish, below bearish, within neutral. A very simply rule of thumb.
Yesterday DAX has opened in the value, but was quickly rejected from the VPOC. This is bearish.
Then I immediately shift my eyes to the low of the day as the first target to be run over.
On the downside, I see the naked POC and VPOC as the potential support. Since the POC is quite thick, I was expecting some initial reaction from, i.e. responsive buy.

I usually look on less than 5 day's of trading. The volume profile contains last week plus this week's VP composite.
Time frame? If you are trading TPOs then 30 min is the time frame of choice, right? For the TPO to work properly, only cash session bars should be included. No overnight data. No 800AM pre-open data either.

About the volatility, it is much less than YM and NQ nowadays. The difficulty in trading DAX is the vicious stop run, as it is a thinly liquid instrument, the market maker does stop run all the time before a real move. Hence it is crucial to know where are the liquidity pools. The composite VP is handy to find that out. You don't need level 2 to do that as there are so many ice burgs in DAX. Level 2 is not that useful. And DAX is too quick for level 2 anyway.

That part of the price action is actually a reaction to the bullish drive in US equity. DAX is merely a follower after NY open. So that is merely market maker trading. Not true strength.

Prep for NQ

We are about to open below the value hence I am going to hold my bearish bias until it is able to trade above the VAH of yesterday.

I am going to seek responsive sell trade at the VAL, POC and VPOC of the prior's profile.
The VAL = 6385.5
VPOC = 6400
POC = 6416.75

After the open, there is not a lot of bearishness that both the dow and NQ are doing drive and consolidate trading step by step higher.
NQ was capped below the prior day's VPOC 6400 for quite a while. But the consolidation spoke strength to me.
It felt like the higher time frame bargain hunter is in the market buying equities from this cheap prices.

So the theme of today has been switched to buying pullbacks.

Es broke one time framing

Finally ES has broken the one time framing to the upside.
Could this be the end of the morning trend and begin of the afternoon rotation?

Session debriefing

Out of the NY open there were wide rotations from both sides, but quickly the bulls tightened their grip on the market.
I was too slow in switching my bias. I have switched my bias after NQ borke 6400 level. But the pullback buying was not that successful as not many of my entries are filled because I was looking for a deeper pullback. But the deeper pullbacks are only in the Russell today.
The ES had a couple of deep pullbacks and that's it.
After the lunch break, the market is so slow that I have decided to just pack for the day.
Today is really a mediocre day that I don't have either big win or loss.

This session is a perfect learning material for having a flexible intraday bias and ready to switch swiftly when evidence is going the other way.

Morning prep for DAX 05-04-2018

The theme of yesterday's was buying pullback. Surprisingly the sell-off of yesterday morning has not done any damage to European indices at all, except for DAX which overreacted to the news. But DAX always overreact to either upside or down side, the news are used by the market maker as a tool to do their shake out and take profits.

If we take a look at the EuStoxx50 which is the benchmark for European equities, it has held the last Wed.'s POC and still trade above the volume value area for the last two weeks. This is saying that the fund mangers are still holding firm on the equities and the bad news has provided another pullback buying opportunity.

The most bullish one is the French CAC, it is ready to challenge the naked POC and VPOC left two weeks ago at 5222.
This is the level that I would like to take some

After that, there is a naked POC at 5255 is another great trade location to seek some responsive selling.

For the DAX, the theme of the day is to buy the pullbacks. The first area of support is the VAH of the merged two day profile at 12055. Then 12030 and 12003.
If it trades below 11913, I would reconsider my long bias.

Merged cash session profile

The VAH of the last three days merged profile has coincided with yesterday's high.
This is the first trade location I would consider to take a

The reason to merge the last three days is that the last three days has formed a bullish flag pattern, that is why it makes sense to merge them.
