OK folks, many questions and discussions have come up regarding scalping the DTB Eurex-based DAX, scattered all over T-REX's scalping thread etc. In order to leave those alone, here is a new thread, to discuss things about scalping this index, on-topic and exclusively. This thread shall revolve around scalping the DAX, so "swing" style day traders aren't welcome, and asked to open their own threads. The kind of trading discussed here is volatility-oriented trading, basically trading exactly that which "day traders" call "noise", so it should be quite clear to most people what is meant. Trading this way involves mainly reading tapes, reading depth, and watching short-term momentum and index correlation differences, rather than charting or TA indicators. Let this be said forward: I will answer questions, if they are good, but will overlook those that aren't. I have better things to do with my time these days than answering silly or simple questions which you can have answered elsewhere or by using the search feature in the top right corner. I want this to be a top-quality thread, with top quality questions and answers, so those that aren't, are ignored. My reasons for this thread are for both the benefit of others as well as my own - Namely to do exchange with other scalpers, and hopefully learn a few good things to improve my approaches. So please respect that any writings out of line with this philosophy and purpose will not be given attention, since they are a waste of your and my precious time. I will also contact moderators to keep this thread clean, so trolls, save your breath and go somewhere else. Negative comments and remarks etc will not be tolerated, only positive, constructive contributions shall remain, so we get ahead, not backwards. Many thanks for your consideration. Warmest Regards - And Happy Discussing! Scientist.
