In the morning (CET time) i prefered dont risk me to enter before S2 was crossed because it was ranging last day in this zone, but when S2 was crossed it was too late to enter because EMA8 was too far, later it was ranging and EMA8 was flat until US open, at 17h. i enter long at 2539, R1 was not still clearly passed but i decided to enter because i have still space upto ATR bands.

I had two more opportunities at 9:05 AM and 14:54 PM but in both cases price was very near from ATR bands and prefer to avoid this trades with less probabilities, anyway it was winner trades too. At 15.50 PM i have good conditions to enter with sufficient space upto ATR bands

From 9.00 AM we have some other opportunities but ATR was too close, perhaps you can find more secure to enter at 9.00 or 9.30 where looks a good downtrend but nobody cant know how many time price could continue with downtrend, but what we know is the highest probabilities to enter safely and have at least 4 ticks positives at trades 1 y 2.

Lots of liquidity in the FESX contract. I havent tried to develop a system for it yet though. Reminds me of the NQ a bit, sort of like a mini.

 

Hard to make money to cover cost though:2c:

 

Cheers,

Yes, future scalpers need have low broker comisions to have profits from few ticks.

I recommend you no more than 3 US$ by the total round turn comissions

 

by example my broker comission total round turn is: 2.90 € for the eurostoxx 50:

So with 4 ticks an winner trade i will get: 37,1 US$ and by a loosing trade: -42,9 US$, relation is: 1,15

 

You must take care of comissions there is broker can make you pay 14 euros by round turn.

    • USD/JPY IS REACHING BEARISH EXHAUSTION, MAY REVERSE AT LEVEL 103.23 Key Resistance Levels: 111.000, 112.000, 113.000 Key Support Levels: 104.000, 103.000, 102.000 USD/JPY Price Long-term Trend: Bearish The USD/JPY pair has been in a downward move since November 12 after a rebound above level 103.30. The pair is approaching the previous support at level 103.30. The selling pressure will resume if the current is broken. The Yen will resume an upward move if the support holds. USD/JPY – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping downward indicating the downtrend. The pair has fallen to level 40 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. The pair is in the downtrend zone and capable of falling. USD/JPY Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4-hour chart, the pair has been in a downward move after rejection at 105.00. On November 18 downtrend; a retraced candle body tested the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. This indicates that the market will fall to level 1.272 Fibonacci extensions. That is the Yen will reach the low of level 103.23 and reverse. USD/JPY – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading The USD/JPY pair is currently above the 25% range of the daily stochastic. It indicates that the pair is in a bullish momentum. The SMAs are sloping downward indicating the downtrend. General Outlook for USD/JPY USD/JPY has been on a downward move but the selling pressure is reaching bearish exhaustion. According to the Fibonacci tool analysis, the Yen will fall and reverse at level 103.23. Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • EURJPY BEARISH MOMENTUM REMAINS TOWARD 123.00 LEVEL EURJPY Price Analysis – November 20 The EURJPY pair is attempting to close beneath the 123.37 price zone as speculative interest stays trapped between coronavirus outbreaks and vaccine hopes. The pairs selling momentum remains toward the 123.00 level. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 127.07, 125.00, 123.37 Support Levels: 122.37, 121.61, 119.31 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging As seen in the daily time frame, the downside pressure is expected to accelerate if EURJPY breaks below the 123.00 support, exposing the ascending trendline support and the 122.37 low. Meanwhile, the moving average 5 and 13 stays mixed for a range in the coming sessions. If the 123.00 support holds, a surge towards the 123.40 level could be expected during the following trading session. However, a barrier around the MA 13 could serve as a limitation for bullish traders within this session. Lower here a firm breach of 119.31 level will argue that the rise from 114.42 level has completed and turned the focus back lower. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging The intraday bias in EURJPY is staying in consolidation with the current recovery. A much more decline is mildly in consideration with 123.37 minor resistance level intact. Beneath the 122.37 level will target a test on the 121.61 low level initially. The resolute breach there may restart the trend from 127.07 level with another decline to 119.31 key support level. On the upside, though, a breach of 123.37 minor resistance level may shift sentiment back to the upside for the 125.00 level instead. Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • Let’s skim some features of Dominion from the manual 1. Dominion is a black box with votes ultimately tabulated in a central server system. Who has access to the central server and where is the manual and security reviews of that server software? 2. Local IT can clandestinely change settings to potentially alter an entire election. There are no checks and balances or observers of the local IT guy when he accesses machine debug and admin settings. Its unclear if a log exists. 3. Many complex rules decide how the “straight ticket” option works, but he system can be set up to ignore votes for individuals if a straight ticket vote is selected. 4. Network Security is very weak since all software access keys use the same cryptographic pair. This gives plausible deniability to whoever potentially decides to mess around with voting settings. It cant be proven who changed a setting since everybody has the same key 5. Digital certificates are not protected by password, and Dominion user manual explicitly says not to enter a password. This enables potential for bad actors to MITM attack data traveling over network between precinct tabulator and central tabulator. 6. Cryptic “split rotation” function that features the ability to “force a maximum deviation”. There is no definition of a “split rotation”, so we cannot know what “force a maximum deviation” means in this instance. 7. Settings can be changed during evening downtime on first night of voting. Much easier to change settings on hundreds of machines than to forge thousands of ballots. A couple of people can do it quickly. 8. The word “Cast” became “Print”, obfuscating the moment when your vote becomes officially cast. Reason for the semantic changes requested by the State of Pennsylvania to the Dominion voting software is currently unknown. 9. There is an option to force the vote scanner to “overrun” a preset amount of ballots every time anybody pauses the scan mid-batch. “Overrun” is undefined. Potential for abuse is high with this function, which was added shortly after 2018 mid-term elections.   ... Americans have a bad and chronic case of “it can’t happen here” ... I'm just sayin'  
    • “The press in our free country is reliable and useful not because of its good character but because of its great diversity. As long as there are many owners, each pursuing his own brand of truth, we the people have the opportunity to arrive at the truth and to dwell in the light. The multiplicity of ownership is crucial. It’s only when there are a few owners, or, as in a government-controlled press, one owner, that the truth becomes elusive and the light fails. For a citizen in our free society, it is was an enormous privilege and a wonderful protection to have access to hundreds of periodicals, each peddling its own belief. There is safety in numbers: the papers expose each other’s follies and peccadillos, correct each other’s mistakes, and cancel out each other’s biases. The reader is was free to range around in the whole editorial bouillabaisse and explore it for the one clam that matters—the truth.”  E. B. White That is gone. And social media is blatantly censoring free expression of viewpoints. ... But,. more insidious than top down media censorship is self censorship.  ... fear of being ‘cancelled’ socially "Media censorship is a shift in the flow of information, while self-censorship is a shift in consciousness. It is the dangerous cornerstone of group-think."  Dylan Thomas     just saying
