:cry: I close negative today too

XARD: How could you close negative today??? WS30 & HK50 paid out cherries left, right and centre.
The new template is all colour coded, BUY on a Blue Candle, SELL on a Pink Candle. The stochastic helps confirm the entry move at the 50 level cross.
It's like having your very own personal coach telling you to get in this trade here and that trade there.

The best place to enter a trade is when price is crossing the main Trend line, the second best is on the pullback where you enter when price is continuing on the same main Trend.
Don't take a SELL on a Blue background, don't take a BUY on a Pink background. If you are in a BUY and a Pink Candle appears GET OUT immediately.
If you are in a SELL and a Blue Candles appears just close your trade down right away - don't hesitate - just stop the bleeding and cauterise the wound straight away without thinking about it - Better to get out quickly and be able to get back in again at a later time.

Most importantly, if you can not see a clear move then just stay out, leave the computer, go a walk, do some shopping and get your mind off trading. Just take a break.
You can always come back at a later date with a fresh mind and see clearly where you should be trading and direct those thoughts on future potential trades.

Just remember, everyone loses, and depending on your mindset everyone wins.
All the best and have a good weekend

The ADX SAR indicator that Xard provided previously helped save me from making more losing trades than I needed to. It allowed me to get into trades earlier and bank my profits and get out fast... in this volatile messy movement market, I'm seeing that scalping works best FOR ME...

I was up for all of Tokyo, London and New York today... never done that before and needless to say, I need to sleep.

All in, I did 18 scalp trades.

4 Losses

= 77% win rate

In a crazy market like this, I'm super happy with ending in positive pips.

Just keep testing if you're struggling. I came across Xard's systems last September... looked simple (it is), but kept moving on to other systems, but found myself coming back over and over again until I decided to stick with it, make tweaks of my own and find my groove.

Do the same... it'll pay off for you eventually if you keep going and learning from your mistakes.

I've attached the ADX SAR that Xard provided previously.

Keep in mind, I've only tested it with 1 min. scalp trades. Do your own testing.

Hello jcorp01,

Words of wisdom in this post!
looked simple (it is)

decided to stick with it, make tweaks of my own and find my groove.


As a veteran trader, trading for a living, I have done all the above and more. The best advice I can give anyone is find what works for you - don't try to copy how someone else trades - no-one can trade like you, me or Xard, we are all individuals with unique trading styles and personalities.

The latest Xard template with the directional arrows and dots is really "Trading For Dummies" but still requires good Money Management and trading psychology practices.

""The new template is all colour coded, BUY on a Blue Candle, SELL on a Pink Candle. ""

As I posted earlier, I already have a successful system BUT it is STRESSFUL. At this time in my life, I need to take the stress out so I am finding what I need from Xard's stuff to do just that so I take out what doesn't help me and add in what does.

I am a Price Action trader and, try as I can, cannot follow indicators (you can't take the spots off a leopard) but Xard's cycle work - dots and semafors is something else which fits my trading style - it really is good, nay, it is bloody good!

I, too, scalp M1 using M5 when price is in a range or consolidating and swing trade when price trends. Xard's stuff helps me with swing trading but screws me up on scalping. In scalping mode, I trade the extremes (highs and lows) so the candle and background colours are always against the way I trade and mess with my trading brain.

I have 2 templates now both tweaked for my trading style and personality - one for scalping and one for swing trading.

This is what I use for scalping:
a.PNG
I need to see price action so I need actual candles; the MAs and ribbon are similar to what I use. The cycle and semafor arrows and dots are what help reduce the trading stress for me so they are now front and centre in my scalping mode. The cycle channel is helpful when it is in confluence with supply and demand zones.

My Swing template is as above but with the background colours added back in
b.PNG
When price closes above the trend line and the candle colour matches the background colour, I am trying to switch to the latest Xard template so that price fluctuations against the swing do not play with my mind.

I was up for all of Tokyo, London and New York today... never done that before and needless to say, I need to sleep.

Please be careful doing this! A Brit lady trader in West Coast Canada on my thread used to do this and made herself really ill so much so that she was hospitalised. She was a very good trader and specialised in Crude and eventually moved back with her Mum in England so she could trade London. Make sure you are not Living To Trade - we only Trade To Live. Staring at the one eyed monster for hours on end will do you in. Just trade long enough to make your daily bread. I just trade the NY open to NY lunch and the rest of the day is free.

To summarise, newbie traders, as long as they have a basic understanding of trading, can take Xard's latest template and just trade as in Post 1792. Those with year's of experience can either do the same or tweak it to suit THEIR trading style and personality. The most important thing to remember is that being consistently profitable or not has nothing to do with your system, it is all about trading psychology and how YOU apply and trade YOUR system. Again, YOU cannot trade like me, Xard or all the other consistently profitable traders - YOU have to find what works for YOU.

I hope this helps those struggling with trading
Cheers,
