Man, I don't want to hurt your feelings but you are still losing because
you don't understand Xard's setup.
And you don't understand the setup
because you wait for other people to do your work (but nobody can do that for you)
(reading the thread, thinking about the setup, watching price moves, find out what are good entries, good exits etc).
You have no chance of ever becoming profitable if you don't study the market cycles (for example: Wyckoff) intensively: the setup Xard offers is nothing but a visualisation of these cycles on different time frames.

Al Brooks:
There are no secrets among successful traders; they all know common setups, and many have their own names for each one. All of them are buying and selling pretty much at the same time, catching the same swings, and they all have their own reasons for getting into a trade. Many trade price action intuitively without ever feeling a need to articulate why a certain setup works. I hope that they enjoy reading my understanding of and perspective on price action and that this gives them some insights that will improve their already successful trading.
The goal for most traders is to maximize trading profits through a style that is compatible with their personalities. Without that compatibility, I believe that it is virtually impossible to trade profitably for the long term. Many traders wonder how long it will take them to be successful and are willing to lose money for some period of time, even a few years. However, it took me over 10 years to be able to trade successfully. Each of us has many considerations and distractions, so the time will vary, but a trader has to work though most obstacles before becoming consistently profitable. I had several major problems that had to be corrected, ... it took me a long time to accept many personality traits as real and unchangeable (or at least I concluded that I was unwilling to change them). And finally there was the issue of confidence. I have always been confident to the point of arrogance in so many things that those who know me would be surprised that this was difficult for me. However, deep inside I believed that I really would never come up with a consistently profitable approach that I would enjoy employing for many years. Instead, I bought many systems, wrote and tested countless indicators and systems, read many books and magazines, went to seminars, hired tutors, and joined chat rooms. I talked with people who presented themselves as successful traders, but I never saw their account statements and suspect that most could teach but few, if any, could trade. Usually in trading, those who know don't talk and those who talk don't know.

Somehow you think the strategies is to enter at Semafors, that is not how it works. Look at the replies you received before and study them. Also it is far better to trade indices than individual shares.

You know the saying "Sell in May and stay away", well with trading indices we can still trade throughout the summer months albeit with reduced daily target levels.
Basically from September to May I aim for 20% per day and in the summer months drop down to 12.5% per day. OK, in reality not every day is a target day. Some days I only hit 10% and other days 6% but there are other days that I hit my targets and shut her down and go do something else. I try to maintain a business like approach when trading. Keep the losses small and let your winners run, when your targets are hit STOP! go do something else. Different traders have different targets, could be 4% & 2%.
Whatever your daily target is, once met, get out and don't go back in. No good giving back to the market what took you all day to get in the first place.

What I look for when trading is where is the 2nd Dot, Perimeter Dot and triangle? Once the 2nd Dot has been made then we can expect change in the Direction. Watch the different TFs... in the enclosed screenshot you can see the 15min, 5min and yes, the 1min TFs. You want to see the Road map play out from the perspective of the 2nd Dot. Once a 2nd Dot appears do not jump in, instead WAIT for price to cross your trend or signal line before jumping in. In smaller TFs price will play out with more smaller cycles which will seem as if price is ranging then all of a sudden we get a breakout and price plays out the higher TF's.

This type of pattern repeats all the time, you just need to watch it play out in the different TFs again and again. That is why I always go for the visual setup so I can see the moves play out off the 2nd Dot, the 2nd PerDot, the 2nd Square. The play off the 2nd Dot is a self similar fractal that repeats on all TFs.

The 2nd Dot is used to confirm that the new Square is no longer repainting and that a change is now taking place.
Gann said that there is nothing new under the sun, everything repeats given time, even this post is a repeat of what I have said throughout this thread.

Look at the evolution of the system. And look here:

You need to understand the "psychology of the market", why the price moves in "THIS" direction. And wait for the "accurate" signal to enter.

Nice, Xard. Thanks for the tip. Would you mind dropping the new Gann settings and indicator that's in your pic? I really like that set-up.
XARD: Give me a couple of weeks, still to sync some stuff.
How many price filters have you used in 10 years? You have already returned to Gann 2 times. Can you do something with Hull Moving?
When I am at home, I will ask you to improve the CCI filter, I have an idea.

XARD; It is the same XARDFX moving average, I simply changed the setting to 9 EMA High & 9 EMA Low instead of Median then set the bgd line color to clrNONE and the same with the H/L lines so it only shows one line for each of the H/L. All done from the input menu.
