nizar, it's 200 points away. so close but so far away!

FTSE will out perform DAX for this run up i guess.

Graham, I'd be interested to know how long you've been trading the above and how it performed (if you're willing to share). Metrics like max dd, profit factor, win loss % and avg win/ave loss would great.

QUOTE
I'm running long from entry on retracement....6240 with stops at 6227.

I use a one hour candlestick chart, with a 9 period MA and 0.02 Parabolic SAR.

Enter Long...candlestick close to 9MA...SAR in green. 1x A200 Forwards $25.
Enter Long ...9MA crosses through candlestick to support from underneath...SAR changes from RED to GREEN.... buy 2x A200 Forwards $25.

Pyramid each breakeven by 1 contract.

Sell longs when candlestick closes below 9MA.

Reverse the above for shorts.


Sounds like a plan biggrin.gif

Except - im not sure with indices, but with stocks, uptrending stocks believe much differently to downtrending ones, so often reversing a long strategy doesnt work very well -- in my experience.

aus,
don't look at that gap with DAX , chance it get filled then rally up only 40%. more likely hang around 7750ish for first 30minutes, then it will march on towards 7800 or stuck at 7780ish to waiting for PPI.

the gap will be filled, but have to kill some bears before that.imo

of couse, PPI and CPI will be decide it's fate!

if you looking for shorts, try 7780ish and stops 7808. that's what i'm gonna do.

good luck aus!

KB The dow may ease back pre open, but I'm betting on a green close. The PPI will have a huge impact of course.

Look at what we did - high open, profit taking, then position taking bringing us back up to the starting point. The others may just do the same.

Watch the RUSS 2000 closely. If it holds above 823, the rest will likely hold. If it falls decisively below 823, time to short everything that moves

I'm holding a few long stocks, and a couple of short ones overnight. Will just scalp the index as it presents

LOL - sounds like we have a real mixed bunch here, at least it will confuse the providers, LOL.

eb - never mind me tongue.gif

unorthodox does not equal stupid (just different) more of a contrarian.


give it a few hours and watch dow futures fall (my nostradamus prediction for the day)

LIFE IS FRAGILE and as investors we have disproportionately significant moral obligations.

I encourage people to watch the DVD titled 'The Corporation' to fully understand the exploitative nature intrinsic to corporations. Then, immediately after to watch the 'Inconvenient Truth' to put it in context.
