Bit tricky on the NQ today, but +31 in under an hour.
Some nice movement today trading the NQ:
Couple of nice trades for +35 on the Dax this morning. Should have really let the second one run, would have been a scorcher...
Tough 50 minutes on the NQ, definitely not for the faint hearted. Had to work hard for +24
Couple on the Dax this morning. Clear from the open it was going to close the gap. I missed the first trade but ended up ok in the end.
Three trades on this one (had to work for it today). On the last trade, I missed the small gap. These tend to get filled, I would have left the trade to close it - which of course you can see that it did.
Anyway, a profit is a profit...
Quick trading (came in a little over 30 min from the open) on NQ futures .
Lots of lazy summer trading at the moment. Saw a nice little opportunity brewing on the Dax this morning. There was a nice gap to the left of the trade entry and exit + 29 (which I haven't shown on the trading chart).
So here's a Dax long trade that was so right, but on the other hand so wrong. I want to say luckily, but there was no luck as it was one of my better plans.
When the Dax moves, it can really create some big swings. I missed the first entry and was not completely convinced on the second.
However, the one I took could have almost doubled the +20 I took. One thing I missed... My stop loss automatically sets for +20. Since I saw this trade as a 'set and forget', I placed the order and went off to do something else. Anyway, +20 is +20, so here is the trade.
Had to wait around for these a little bit, wish I'd held on a little longer on the first one. +26 for an hour or so's work.
A couple of trades on the Dax here (1 was a loser) but up overall +41
A quick trade down (+15) from a supply area on the Dax
A real quick trade for + 20 on the German Dax. Had to be quick as getting ready for a beach day (which is a shame because I left a lot on the table)
A respectable +51 today on The German Dax
+33 out of 2 trades in under 10 minutes on the NQ.
+ 34 on NQ Futures
+ 30ish on the Dax
A very quick + 19 on the German Dax
This was a nice one on the Dax for +134
Nice trade on the 1 hour chart
