Master Short-Term DAX Trading: Dynamic Trader Strategy Explained

Created: 28th June 2024

Trading the DAX can be both exciting and rewarding, especially when you have a solid strategy in place. In our recent "Trade of the Day" video, we delve into a unique approach using a two-minute chart from our Dynamic Trader package. This method is perfect for those seeking numerous short-term trades throughout the day. Let's break down the key aspects of this strategy and how you can use it to maximize your trading success.

A Calm and Controlled Strategy

Many traders might panic at the thought of a two-minute chart, but our strategy is designed to be calm and controlled. Despite the short time frame, each trade follows a specific set of rules to ensure high-probability entries. This approach minimizes stress and keeps trading disciplined and focused.

Real-Time Trade Examples

To illustrate the strategy, the video provides detailed examples of four trades executed since the 8:00 AM start:

  1. First Trade (8:14 AM):

    • Entry: Close of the 8:14 AM candle.
    • Stop-Loss: 30 points.
    • Outcome: At its best, moved 40 points down, providing a good window for profit.
  2. Second Trade (8:32 AM):

    • Entry: Another bite at the previous trade's movement.
    • Stop-Loss: 12 points.
    • Outcome: Moved down 19 points, another opportunity for profit.
  3. Third Trade:

    • Entry: A continuation trade with a 15-point stop.
    • Outcome: Moved down just under 50 points, yielding significant returns.
  4. Fourth Trade (9:20 AM):

    • Entry: Close of the 9:20 AM candle.
    • Stop-Loss: 36 points.
    • Outcome: Still running during the video, already up 80 points, with potential for more.

Profit-Locking Techniques

One of the key aspects of this strategy is the ability to lock in profits as trades progress. By adjusting the stop-loss points, you can secure gains and minimise risk. For example, in the fourth trade, as the price moved up, the stop-loss was adjusted to lock in up to 75 points against a 36-point stop. This method ensures that even if the market turns, the trade remains profitable.

High Returns with Minimal Risk

The Dynamic Trader strategy shows how risking a small percentage of your account can yield substantial profits. For instance, risking 1.5% of your account could result in a 3% gain on a single trade, not to mention the cumulative gains from multiple trades throughout the day.
