Unusual Strategies for Short-Term Silver Trading and DAX Scalping

The strategies we have prepared for you today are a unique work of professional traders from our Purple Trading Club. Not only do they actively engage in trading on a daily basis, but they also invest a lot of time in further self-realization and also in passing on their many years of experience to those who are a little less experienced.

As the name suggests, the main topic of this article will be two strategies, the first of which related to silver trading comes from Purple Trading Club member Milan Kleban, who first embarked on his trading career in the infamous year 2008. Today, Milan specializes most in silver and forex.

The second strategy, which we will show and analyze here, is scalping the DAX from Jaroslav Tupý, a trading expert, lecturer, and longtime member of the Purple Trading Club, who has been active on the Czech trading scene for more than 25 years. At the beginning of his career, Jarda often worked as a futures trader for foreign companies, but today he holds the position of a private investor, who also tries to pass on his many years of experience to others.

Procedure from entry to exit

Scenario No. 1 - significantly better variant

  • Entry made on the M15 when the market reaches one of the designated S / R zones
  • Stop-Loss not set at this time
  • Take-Profit set in the range of 12-20 pips
  • All the while trying to comply with the RRR 1: 1

Scenario # 2 - when everything is not going according to plan

  • If the market loses 20 or more pips, another position of the same volume is opened
  • Take-Profit reset to the level of the 1st input -> profit from the 1st position = approx. 0, profit from the 2nd position = approx. 20 and more pips
  • Stop-Loss set at a distance of 40 pips from the 1st input -> loss from the 1st position = approx. 40 pips, loss from the 2nd position = approx. 20 or less pips

Scalping strategy on DAX

High-speed business strategies, which to some extent include scalping, are among the most widely used strategies in general. Scalping, in contrast to longer-term strategies, has a number of advantages, the most important of which is probably the avoidance of night trading and therefore the saving from fees for holding a position overnight. Another indisputable advantage is that the trader has the opportunity to trade with very little capital due to scalping, as he is not forced to hold as many reserve funds as in longer-term strategies, where a lack of reserves can cause forced closing of trading positions.

Scalping pullbacks and continuing the trend according to J. Tupý

A pullback is created in every trending market. In simplicity, it is a state when the market moves in one direction (in a trend) for some time and then a local correction is created (short-term movement against the trend). It is better to see everything in the chart below, where the so-called local maxima are marked with red lines, after which the market created a correction.

How to scalp DAX?

The scalping strategies of DAX by J. Tupý are based on places where markets create local maxima (increasing trend) and minima (decreasing trend). And after Pullback and return, or breaking the maximum/minimum, then usually comes into the trade in the direction of the trend.

Stop-Loss and Take-Profit are usually set in a 1: 2 ratio, but the final setting is a very subjective matter and everyone can choose this ratio according to their own ideas.

Scalping with the help of Range Bars according to J. Tupý

This is similar to the strategy used above, but the most important difference is that trading does not take place with the help of time candles, but so-called "Range" candles, which are generated on the basis of a specified range (see chart below).

Therefore, the Range candles are all the same length, and a new one is created only when the body together with the wick (Note: Range candles can never have both wicks, always only one or none) reaches the desired range.
