11-01-2018 Dax Technical Analysis

Hello traders, good morning. I hope that your trading week is going well. Yesterday in the article we discussed that we saw the first bearish gap for some time. It turns out that this bearish gap lower was the start of the retracement from the top of the expanding pivot setup. You can see that setup below on the charts.

This morning I sent out a couple of ideas to the Premium channel, one bearish idea and one bullish idea. Which camp are you currently sat in?

11-01-2018 Dax Ideas


The Bullish idea is based on an ACR line set. It assumes that this recent sell-off was the first step (Action). So if we have a pullback to close the gap, then there is a 6:1 reward to risk trade.


The Bearish idea is based around a continuation play on the expanding pivot retracement, after finding a temporary balance point.
