27/4 – Dirty DAX thoughts

Here’s some DAX analysis.  I am trying to document my thought processes of how I am trading these instruments.  Here are the long setups I can see on the 5M chart at the end of the day.  Notice how, in hindsight, in each setup, price nearly touches the EMA-10 and then bounces.  The EMA10/20 XO occurred in the European morning, just around 11,800 before price put in a 200-point rally.

DAX Analysis Apr27 (5M)

Here are the trades I actually took.  So on the first one I was too greedy – I had a 20 pip pullback after price rallied some 80 pips to bounce from the 12000 level.
