DAX: Probable exhaustion

FX:GER30   DAX Index
A head and shoulders ( H&S ) pattern is shown on this time frame. The right shoulder - not formed properly as yet - appears to be exhausting at this time. Price is struggling to stay afloat. This predicts nothing. The position is one to watch for those trading on lower time frames. Higher time frame perspectives are a must. This perspective is looking well ahead. So I'm setting alerts for when price gets near a possible base of right shoulder. It may never get there. But getting ready is everything.

For new and seasoned traders: it's possible to draw H&S patterns how ever you want. It is rare to find a very neat H&S . I think these patterns should not be used in a predictive way. It is about understanding where you are in the markets, and taking calculated affordable losses ( aka stop-losses). Losses are an inevitable part of trading, and the biggest issue affecting profitability.

Stay safe. Wash your hands. Keep a clean keyboard. Wear a good mask. 😃👳‍♂️ Treat the markets like a dangerous virus that wants to grab your money! 🤣🤦‍♂️😄

Comment: Some were ready and some were late.
Tip of the day: if you're shorting anything do it at the peak of something to minimise risk of being scalloped. [Different perspective on the virus ]
