Question

Good morning ,

 

can anyone give me some advice on the issue i'm currently having when i place a trade on the German Dax ?

As an example this morning the previous close for yesterday was 15661 and the open this morning was 15651 , the gap wasn't really large enough to encourage a trade but as i am new to trading i decided to try a trade . I put my entry point 2 points above the high of the first 5 minute bare at 15654 , my stop/loss 52 points away from my entry point and when i attempted to put my exit point in ( 2 points before the previous days close ) i get the message box come up saying - ' Limit level is too far from the current market price ' . I just don't understand where i'm going wrong when indicating my limit/exit point , any help from experienced traders would be very much appreciated , thank you .

Hi Steve,

Is that the error message that you see on your deal ticket?

You might need to put your entry point level at a minimum of 10 points away from the current level

Hi  Arvin , many thanks for your reply on the issues i'm having getting my limit/exit point correct . The deal ticket seems to be accepting my entry point , stop loss okay but when i indicate on the ticket my exit point i get the message come saying ' Limit level is too far from the current market price ' . I have just finished studying John Pipers spread betting course and in it he says that your exit point should always be 2 points before the previous days close , but when i do this it gets rejected , i must be doing something wrong .

This morning for example yesterdays close was 15511 , the open this morning was 15574 so that's a good 63 point gap . So as it's an up gap i was looking for trading down , the close didn't however move downwards so no trade as per John Pipers rules . If the first five minute bar had closed in a downward direction i would of put my entry point 2 points below the low of the first five minute bar and my exit 2 points before the previous days close 15513 , do you agree with those calculations ?

Look forward to hearing from you ,

 

Regards , Steve

    • The ECB is expected to raise rates again at its meeting this week, but will it be enough to bolster the euro? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices European Central Bank Euro EUR/USD United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What will the ECB do? The European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to raise rates by 50bps at its meeting. What is the background? Like most major central banks, the ECB has been pushed into raising rates in order to combat high levels of inflation. While energy prices have come down, price increases remain above the ECB’s 2% target, and as a result, the bank still views it as necessary to push ahead. No ECB member has dissented from this view of late, leaving markets with little indication that a dovish caucus is forming. Indeed, inflation remains high, but economic data remains resilient. Expectations for a recession, which were widespread as 2022 ended and 2023 began, have been pushed further out, towards the second half of this year and even into 2024, helped by a slump in energy costs that has allayed the worst fears of economists and investors. What is the market impact? If the ECB can send a suitably hawkish message along with the expected 50bps rate hike, then the euro may receive some support against the US dollar. However, euro bulls must be aware that the pair has come a long way since the October lows, and while it only puts a modest dent in the 2022 downtrend, it does mean that the bar for further EUR/USD gains is rather high. This is coupled with negative divergence on the daily MACD indicator, which suggests weakening bullish momentum in the short-term and a general unwillingness to push the rally much further in the near-term. If the ECB is not viewed as being sufficiently hawkish, then EUR/USD may continue to weaken from its eight-month highs, but a move below $1.05 would be the minimum needed to indicate that the sellers have reasserted control. Source: ProRealTime Meanwhile in indices, a weaker euro could give the Dax some fresh impetus, but this would need to be fairly strong to counter worries about a weakening eurozone economy that might ensue. And if the ECB is much more hawkish and provides EUR/USD with a reason to recover then the risk to eurozone stocks is skewed to the downside. Some might argue that, given the huge rally in the Dax this month, some weakness is needed to take the froth out of the index, which may well be pricing in too optimistic a scenario. A drop back towards the 50-day SMA might bring the June and November 2022 highs into view as potential support. This would still leave the uptrend intact. Bulls would welcome further gains in order to cancel out the MACD’s negative divergence that looms large at present. Further upside targets 15,605 and then 15,725. Source: ProRealTime
