Too Much Margin
 
1 Attachment(s)
The margin is too much for me - about $12,000 last time I looked on IB (Interactive Brokers). But I have charted it. Here is a pic of a 15-second chart on Ninja Trader ver 6.5, with some of my indicators. Ver 6.5 is becoming obsolete, but I have not moved my indis to ver 7 yet.
The Feb-10 March data is the last I have.
ps: Don't know why the pic is so big..???
ps2: The pic looks better in Paint.

which system are you using ?

Kenz987 Jun 4, 2011 1:45pm | Post# 4

No special system, just trying to stay with the trend.
Using the 1-minute chart for the "long term".
Using a tick or seconds chart for entry.
Mainly trendlines, s/r, 123s.
I like grids at 00 levels and constant distance ma channels.
I found scalping nearly impossible with MT4.
There are futures brokers that provide a free data feed to free Ninja Trader ver 7 - see their site/forum for a list. With that you can build the kind of charts you want.

But the day margin is only 25 % of the full margin with most brokers.

Careful with DAX as it tends to be quite volatile like the mini russell at times. Also, slippage may be an issue, even a 5 lot position is likely to slip quite a bit. I think the DAX is good for scalping especially through a hint of a trend, as it can be a bit choppy, but still liquid enough for getting filled. As for margins, many brokers actually have around 2,000 eur intraday.

DAX Analysis
 

The DAX confirmed a double top formation plunging below our stop. We expect an extension of the correction toward the 200 hours line at 6039 if not even a move toward the important support line at 5873. However this decline is corrective and a new buying opportunity!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hey,

let's continue the thread!

today DAX meets resistance and double shoulder so I believe it will go down to 9932.6

Because of the low volatility of the forex market, I tried to paper trade the FDAX. It's crazy how fast you can make 10 points profit. The problem is, you can loose them that fast too. What I like to trade are bounce of significant S&R levels with a standard TP of 10 points.

Here an example:

What I have noticed is the DAX has quite often nice trends and quite tradable ranges. I'm looking foward to trade it again on Monday and maybe make some updates here.

hhi,
lets try to bring this thread back to life. I guess a lot of previous posters here got burned on the dax lately (so did i, blow up my account 3 times so far). Once i figer i got the right trend, those 100+ point drops get me again and again. Reducing position size isnt helping. I grab those pips and (make me believe) that i got it right this time. When i scale up 10 to 50 contracts.... u know what happens. I am pretty new to all this. I appreciate some insight.

FYI : I am long at 10076.x
