Yep, absolutely. For sure, The DAX has always been my baby go-to but over the last few months, it's behaviour had changed and I was finding it less predictable. Yes, it can be wild and bite like a salty but it was always still predictable if you had spent the time studying it properly - predictably unpredictable - sounds weird, I know but true.
It has recently begun to come back to that way of moving and I have now begun to get involved again - so we shall see.
In the interim, as you guys know, I used EA alongside Dead Horse and that morphed into a scalping pair as well, using my Kijun-sen entry method - eventually morphing them both together.
I also have fallen in love with the NAS100. It is so damned predictable - there's that word again - as it repeats the same moves over-and-over-and-over again every day near enough. I tend to use the UK100 in the am and NAS100 in the arvo, UK time, for obvious reasons. These are worked with the Kijun-sen + Dead Horse combo.
I also will use EG with the moves off the 20 ema on a 70-tick or 1-min chart. Double-Doji and break from contraction entries. Anything up to 5-min works well.
There is also a spike-rejection method I use off the 89 ema for the same pairs.
Thats what I love about this site. Ask a question and you get a bunch of real traders to answer you. Kreslik really spoils us.
I do recall you playing EA quite a bit last summer. And I do recall EA's sibling EN use to love picking one direction in London and making some big moves. I use to trade the 5m with donchain channels and play in the direction of the higher time. I was able to capture 80 to 100 pips with a 20 pip sl. Will have to look at both again.
I'll definitely have to start watching NQ in the background now. To many traders saying good things about it.
I've always hated EG. It's honestly probably one of the worst performing pairs I trade. Cuz of thst I almost never trade it. With the exception of the beauty head and shoulder pattern on the weekly earlier in the year.
Do you post about the spike rejection method in your thread? I'd be curious as I love playing spikes/wicks. Thanks again.
Just threw it on real quick. But looks like EN with donchain channels still offers a nice play here and there. 100 pip gain followed by a 70. Dont get me wrong there are some days it s**t whips you. But in the end you should come out on top and especially if you scale in. Then its a real beast.
Ah...but that whip is where the scalp shark makes the real money! Spike-hunt!!!
