Still very busy in my mainjob (and this will continue for at least the next 2 weeks), so I did not look at the markets and post any signals. Looks like I should better have done so... 12 signals in 8 markets occured. The indices are now pretty bullish and there was some nice movement last week. The signals occured in the following markets:

As usual the weather backcast contains the ichimoku analysis of 22 indices, futures and FOREX pairs. The linked charts contain all the details and neccessary context. Both charts and tables are generated automatically, at the moment the software is still work in progress. As such, I am not sure if it works 100% correctly, so if you see a mistake, would like to see an addition/change or simply give feedback: feel free to mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.Thanks a lot :)

If you would like to play around with the system that is used to generate the signals and charts on this blog, you can do so! The latest version of my software, ichinscratchy v0.2.1, was released in April 2017. It´s free & open source, you can find it under http://spare-time-trading.de/en/trading-system.

Pretty buy week for me in my dayjob, so I did not post all signals each day. Were not as much, though: 5 signals in only 4 markets:

Im Folgenden die Depotübersicht mit Stand 30.04.2016

Es wurden zwei Käufe getätigt: Kupfer und Euro Bund Future, die beide an ihrem initialem SL ausgestoppt wurden. WTI, DJ Transportation Index und Silber sind inzwischen im "grünen Bereich", d.h. ihr SL über dem Einstandskurs. Dax und Eurostoxx sollten steigen, um nächste Woche nicht ausgestoppt zu werden. Zucker steht noch deutlich vom Einstandskurs entfernt (alle Bemerkungen beziehen sich auf den gültigen SL, nicht den letzten Schlusskurs).

Im Folgenden die Auswertung der betrachteten Märkte gem. Ichimoku. Zum Verständnis der Tabellen findet sich im Bereich Know-How der Beitrag Erläuterung zu den Wochenübersichten. In den Indizes wurde es gegen Ende der Woche wieder etwas ruppiger, die Volatilität steigt. Edit: der letzte Satz stand in der ursprünglichen Version dieses Posts, hält einer genaueren Betrachtung aber nicht stand:

Im Folgenden die Depotübersicht mit Stand 23.04.2016

Es wurden sechs Käufe getätigt: Sugar, Coffee, Gold, Cocoa, Nikkei und Palladium. Coffe wurde leider kurz vor einem Zwischenhoch gekauft und in der folgenden Korrektur mit dem initial Stop Loss ausgestoppt. Ansonsten sind derzeit 10 Trades aktiv.

Im Folgenden die Auswertung der betrachteten Märkte gem. Ichimoku. Zum Verständnis der Tabellen findet sich im Bereich Know-How der Beitrag Erläuterung zu den Wochenübersichten. Insbesondere die Indizes befinden sich derzeit gesammelt im Long-Modus (was mich eher zur Vorsicht mahnt).

Im Folgenden die Depotübersicht mit Stand 17.04.2016

Es wurden vier  Käufe getätigt (DJ Transportation Index, Silber, DAX und EUROSTOXX) und drei Positionen ausgestoppt (Orange Juice, SMI, Nikkei). Orange Juice war dabei im Plus, die SMI und Nikkei Shorts wurden leider mit dem initial Stop Loss ausgestoppt.

Anbei die Wochenübersichten der 15. Kalenderwoche. Alle Märkte werden gem. der Ichimoku-Regeln anhand der letzten 60 Handelstage nach Einstiegssignalen analysiert. Betrachtet werden sowohl Long- als auch Short-Signale. Auffällig ist, dass derzeit alle betrachteten Märkte sich entweder in einem Aufwärtstrend bewegen, oder aber neutral verlaufen. Abwärtstrends sind gem. den Ichimoku-Regeln bei keinem betrachteten Markt gegeben.
