Thank you to those who have contributed to the manual already. We can all use it and add to it so that we can all bank more Pips.

Depends on how long the swings are that you want to trade:
you could break it down to 2 real moves - 1 pullback; 1 impulse move (using TL-channel; with several good entries)
or
you could use semfores (after big wait for small; blue-green-ish for up, red-ish for down) and
down: wait for price to close below EMAs9+36 (yellow colouring)
up: wait for price to close above EMAs9+36 (blue colouring)
I really like your skill at drawing trend lines on the first picture :) :thumbup:
However, the second requires no skill whatsoever.
Q1 : Which way would you choose when trading? drawing trend lines or applying Xards Semafors/EMAs?
Q2 : Which one is more obvious to you to see where the trend is going?
Q3 : Which of Xard's indicators helps you the most in making trading decisions? Semafors? HL? MAs? VQ? Trendlines?

Check what is better for you, no matter what is better for others, your questions sound lazy.

Well, I didn't expect such an insightful reply. :) Thank you very much. I have an i5-4460 CPU, 16 GB RAM and, alas, not a dedicated graphics card, so my understanding is I should forget about Windows. I'm still wading through the ginormous amount of posts in this thread and I haven't read about linux yet. But basically would it be ok to have a dedicated partition for Linux and then run a Windows emulator and MT4 from there? Thank you.
P.S. - By 32 bit what do you refer to?

I have Xards system running on the above (Windows 10 Home) computer.

It drives my 12 year old (not so smart) 46 inch Samsung TV.

Yes I have reduced the system to essential indicators.

Having said that it will run his ‘template’ but is not happy about it!

My i5 Macbook Pro late 2013 running Windows 10 Pro in ‘Boot camp’ also runs Xards systems quite happily.

My point being that it is not necessary to buy new hardware if you do some research via whatever search engine you are using ‘How to speedup windows10’ Do a clean install of Win10 step by step follow the instructions you found online. MT4 was built to run on Windows OS.

Don’t have a fancy background don’t have folders full of files on the desktop.

Have a good look at Xards systems in all their different flavours and cherry pick what you find as helpful for your entries and exits. Make up your own templates and name them as to what they contain.

Do you really need 10 charts open at once? If so do they need all the same dashboards running?

I run two instances of MT4 one for News, Strength dashboards, the other as my ‘Trading Platform’ focused minimal charts. Buying Selling Selling Buying.

If you are using a laptop use an external monitor/Tv. Trade from the larger screen, info on the laptop screen.

One of the standout advantages of Xards setup is by using a very large screen it allows you to be mindful of what’s on the left and where the price is coming from and per chance going.

New high speed hardware will not improve your trading don’t let that belief detain you from learning how to read a chart. We buy lows and we sell highs that’s pretty much about it.

Don’t have a web browser open don’t have your email/messenger and any other distraction open period. TURN off your phone whilst trading……………..;-)

Fwiw

"However, the second requires no skill whatsoever." sure, your questions show that you are a real pro and that's why you came up with this system and not Xard.

I agree. People who are new to trading / new to this system should start with M30.You get good swing most of the times.
Few observations ...may be every one is aware about this but it might help the complete newbies:
1) Trade from 30M charts only. Don't trade the 30M second dot but wait for T+1 second dot.
When the T+1 second dot originates from the 30m perimeter dot ( and in close proximity to 30m 2nd dot) ,
quiet often you get powerful moves.Chances of repainting might be less.
2) Don't completely rely on dots or 2nd dots.
There are are lot of other good things in the system.Observe the Daily open.
If today's DO is below yesterday's DO....have a bearish bias.
So a 2nd dot sell signal will have higher chance of success.Vice versa is true.
Ideally if you observe the DO they will appear like stair case.
SK
The 2nd dots work but not all of them.
If you zoom out on your M30 chart and get a snapshot of where the trend is going,
can we say you would definitely go for the 2nd dot which is in line with the overall trend. yes :)

True. What works for me may not work for others but that is not the point of the exercise.
The aim of the exercise is to stop taking unwanted trades which are not in line with the trend.
Take for example, last week we had 3 opportunities. Out of the 3, only 1 of them was worth
taking because it was in line with the overall trend. If we discipline ourselves to focus on taking
trades in line with the trend, we will not have many losers thus making our little wins as big wins
with plenty of green pips :In Love:

Im like any trader who makes mistakes :facepalm:
The thing is until when will we / I keep repeating the same mistakes.
How can we cut down our mistakes?
We are following Xard's Trend Following Trading System.
From the thread name "Trend Following", but we still end up taking counter-trend trades
which don't move far and get us in trouble.

Take a look at the 2nd dot triangle which got printed today on US30 M30 timeframe.
After the triangle got printed price didn't drop, instead it reversed. Why?
Because the UP trend is still strong :Fire:

Keeping it so simple

XARD: Use the Orange ZZ line as your Intra-Day BIAS - Use the White Dot as your IntraDay HIGH/LOW - Use the White ZZ line for IntraDay EXIT - After a new Orange ZZ line appears, WAIT! for price to cross the Trend line to confirm a change in the Trend Cycle.
