Dear traders,

Last time I wrote about GBPUSD.

The price has gone up and then down and pretty much range-traded for the majority of the time.

Considering it is August and considering everyone is away on a holiday, volumes are relatively low.

Everyone is waiting for volatility to kick back.

But in the meantime, here is what else I have been following since yesterday.

Germany 30 (DAX) Trading Analysis 18.08.2022

After the recent bullish move, we are seeing a slow outflow of buyers.

Looks like the bullish trend might have run out of steam.

There is a bearish engulfing pattern that formed on the daily timeframe.

This one:

The action looks to be quite strong.

In the trading room, we’ve managed to actually get into a short trade yesterday up from almost the high of yesterday’s candle.

Here is a screenshot from the trading room:

This trade was an intraday trade based on my day trading strategy, but still it managed to reach 1:22 risk to reward ratio, which is the best so far for the month of August.

Considering there is not much volatility, it was a great trade.

At the same time, I have noticed that more selling pressure is accumulating and possibly offering long term traders a shorting opportunity.

There is a major supply zone and the bearish engulfing pattern has formed just above it.

Now, the only thing missing is a confirmation from the 4H chart.

If such occurs, I might consider shorting the DAX.

On the other hand, we need to be cautious if the buying interest renews and pushes the price higher.

I will be patiently waiting to see which scenario will unfold in the next few trading sessions.

Happy trading,

Colibri Trader
