The Bund trade ideas I posted pre-market turned out to be pretty good.
- A short at LVN & VWAP.
- Play #1 short off CHVN. I got +4 +3 ticks as I exited T2 at the VPOC. I didn’t expect it to rotate down. This ended up being the high of the session. I cut my winner short here on T2.
- Play #3 was compromised by news but I got in on a pullback. It didn’t work. 1 tick away from getting stopped out so when it bounced up I jumped on the chance to exit with a 2 tick loss. I hit the offer to get out and Ninja’s OCO wasn’t fast enough to cancel my target and I ended up with an extra sell putting me short.
- Accidental trade – A bit of luck here as usually accidental trades usually don’t work very well for me.
Play #4 just came up as I’m writing this. I didn’t take it because of news on the hour (probably the reason it shot up). Actually I just took it on sim out of curiosity.
Here’s the P/L:
I was also profitable on the Stoxx. I’m watching this market more closely and I think I will be ready to take some real money trades soon. I need some more data first as it’s a bit tighter than Bund. I’ve also been watching ES during European hours.
