Today's charts and trades show the first 90 minutes or so of the DAX using Context-Trader and its buttons.
The DAX started the day with a gap up and a sell off. It then found support at below the VAL but within the overlapping Profile's buying tail.
The 90 minutes ended with over $1,000 profit on a 1 lot initial entry using my DoubleDown trade management rules.
Order flow was very clear although some of the level 1 resistance points did not hold. This brought in the DoubleDown rules and resulted in no losing sequences again today so far. This is day 4 for me without a losing sequence.
I'm trying to show that you don't have to trade large size to make reasonable money once you have a good trading plan. Starting with a 1 lot size with DoublingDown is the way to start. Once you are CP on the minimum size, scaling SLOWLY up becomes a lot easier. The trap to avoid is to increase either too quickly or to a size where the outcome of any one trade matters.
