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.

      I'm currently using Ninjatrader for my trading. But I have a problem with the Tick Chart and when I use any Indicator. When e.g. the market is very fast or my internet is slow (for a moment), then the value of the candles and indicator is wrong. 
      So I refresh the chart after every finished candle. 
      Does anybody know a software without this problem?

    • EA in my opinion are coded to follow the technical analysis so they might require monitoring during the highly volatile markets, so anyone who wishes to go automated should read EA manuals before implementing them.
    • So here is the good news to surprise us again, i will try my luck in this VIP contest and let see what new opportunities i will be able to unleash this time.
    • So we are near to holidays now, Q4 is also gonna end soon and we will be preparing to make new plans for the upcoming new year.
    • EURUSD Is Dominated By The Bull Market Throughout As The Pair Seek To Recover EURUSD Price Analysis – November 18 The bulls had full control today, moving the market up during the entire European session as the FX pair confirmed its breakout past the high of the prior session after trading up to 1.1068 above during the day. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.1501, 1.1412, 1.1278 Support Levels: 1.0989, 1.0879, 1.0780 EURUSD Long term Trend: Bearish EURUSD at the moment, the rebound from the 1.0879 level is initially seen as a remedy and, in the case of a further increase, the increase may be contained by the level at 1.1412 retracements from the level at 1.0879. Although the downward trend from the 1.1501 (high) level may resume later. However, the sustained plunge from the 1.1412 level may change this bearish position and lead to a greater increase in the retracement to the level at 1.1501. EURUSD Short term Trend: Ranging The EURUSD intraday bias stays neutral for the initial position and a further plunge is anticipated as long as the resistance remains at the level at 1.1073. Also, the corrective rebound from the level at 1.0879 is expected to end at 1.1501. Meanwhile, past the low of the level at 1.0989, the bias will be revised downward to repeat the low of the level at 1.0879. However, the breakout of the level at 1.1073 may soften this bearish trend and push up the bias for the level at 1.1175. Instrument: EURUSD Order: Buy Entry price: 1.1073 Stop: 1.0989 Target: 1.1412 Source: https://learn2.trade
