Hi BBB

My watchlist is work in progress with around 15 stocks. I intend to get it to between 30 - 50 in order to generate around 5 potential plays either side per day.
I use a similar strategy as the one for the DAX, but on a daily basis in relation with 50 and 200sma. Entry is above/below previous days high/low.

Both GENZ & KLAC didn't perform today, but their not in danger of stopping out. Holding time can be couple of days to couple of weeks.

I'll run the scan after 9 tonight and let you know what fruits it bares

Cheers

cd, this is how I see Dax. I agree in hindsight its fine but it might give you something to look at.

Initially on the daily chart below, we broke violently lower and have since retraced approx 50% and run out of steam with a number of similar length bars. I would be looking for the next move down and would be wary of a break to new (week - 2 week) lows.

On the 2 min chart I have tried to show how I see things. The rectangle is difficult to trade, I think you either sell new highs or buy new lows but its not easy. I have then included horizontal lines which I think are areas where I would either be selling the bounce (so sit on offer) or more likely hitting bids as we break lower. Today is an extreme day as there is a big violent move without much retracement (ie trendline). When this breaks I would look to see if its likely to go lower or not and sell each break of my red line.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask questions.
