Update - XU 2nd DOT Edition

Hi Everyone, here is the update as promised for your perusal.
I have also enclosed the Dashboard (it is not in the template so you will need to drag it onto your chart), some of you will need to change your broker's Symbols in order for it to work right.
I have included the full source file for doing this plus you can add/delete Symbols to suit.

HOW IT WORKS
Gold Square = Trend Top, we should see the market go DOWN from here.

Red Square = Cycle Top, we want to take SELL trades off the Red Dots from the Red Square.
When in a DOWN Trend we look to take only SELL trades off the Top Red Dots (starting with the 2nd Dot).
The DOWN moves will be bigger than the up moves in a DOWN Trend.

White Circles = temporary market change i.e Pullback/Continuation of the cycle.

Green Square = Cycle Bottom, we want to take BUY trades off the Green Dots from the the Green Square.
When in an UP Trend we look to take only BUY Trades off the Bottom Green Dots (starting with the 2nd Dot).
The UP moves will be bigger than the down moves in an UP Trend.

Blue Square = Trend Bottom, we should see the market go UP from here.

And it goes without saying that the 2nd Dot is where it all kicks off.
The 2nd Dot is our staging area it's the reason we sit out of the market and just WAIT!!! for the 2nd DOT to appear.


Again... This is NOT Rocket Science folks... Just take a look at the 15m ZZ1 (thick line) swing moves (i.e. ARROW moves)
Keep this part in your mind - This is IMPORTANT shit - I cannot stress this enough.
When we are trading off a DOWN ARROW the DOWN moves are way bigger than the up moves during that DOWN cycle.
When we are trading off an UP ARROW the UP moves are way bigger than the down moves during that UP cycle.

Why is this so important? Well, it's where you make the most of your money in these BIG moves

Install the fonts, copy the indicators over, then copy the template over.
Now restart MT4 and select the XU-2nd DOT Edition template.
It should look similar to the enclosed image of US500 5min chart.

Remember to trade Top Down... Start with the 1hr Chart (see exactly where you are on the road map) then work you way down to the 15m chart (this is where you zoom in on the action) where you will no doubt execute your trade(s). Most of the time you will be sitting on the sidelines WAITING - then along comes a 2nd DOT and memory muscle kicks in as you start to take the same trades over and over again as the pattern/cycle repeats. Like I said, it is not rocket science.

Enjoy

May you make more Pip$ than you ever thought possible

Beer and Posting... not the best recipe
Forgot an indicator, here it is...
PS Missing indy now included in XU-2nd DOT zip file :-)
Hello Xard777, Can you please modify the dashboard indicator to allow currency pairs to be added in the input tab. This will be much easier to do than modifying the mql file and recompile. I want to add all pairs to the dashboard. Sarju

Xard's new version of the Semafor really got me hooked. I spent more time at the computer over the weekend, then I do when trading. I'm a firm believer in Empirical Science i.e. measurements or data collected through direct observation or experimentation. I have spent lots of time to figure out how to apply a wave structure theory to the market and find out the current position within that structure, which is most important. Sometimes wondering if such structure can be applied if price action is random? But then, Xard comes up with this new version of an indicator and suddenly it all falls in place. It's a real eye opener. Moving back and forth between the TFs from 1m to the highest, it's so easy to see the structure. I'm absolutely puzzled. This is not just an Indicator, it's a highly valuable tool, a real treasure. Well, at least I see it that way and want to express my gratitude to Xard by writing this comment. Thank you so much!

Your glowing appreciation for Xard's untiring effort to give a valuable gift to all the traders is a testimony that the system is unmatched in giving a clear picture of the market. I never used multi timeframes approach to trading. Now I realize this is the best way to approach your trading. I have found 1H, 15M and 5M to be very useful in finding high probability trades. However, I still believe that the 1H signals can be made to appear on smaller timeframes in some form of mtf version of the 2nd dot edition. I hope some genius insights and creative thinking will work to make it possible... I am full of so many fears when I begin to trade. Now I am impatiently waiting for the next week to start trading and see the system in action on live market.

Check H1 TF guys, if you see a 2º dot setup go down to 15 TF and find the best entry point. Xard system will put you in the road. Thanks for your work Xard and share it for free. One of the best traders in the history said I will not give you the exact entry point but will show you how the markest move.

I wonder why this semaphore is so special? This is just a semaphore ... Even if its parameters ideally fall into the market reversals today, it can be said with all certainty that this will definitely not happen tomorrow. Its not an adaptive indicator. The parameters of the zigzag can be twisted indefinitely, but unfortunately this will not make the zigzag smarter ...

And to be completely honest ... Sorry, but I don't understand why there is so much noise and joy around this release? Everyone is making noise, rejoicing .... Personally, I don't really understand the essence of this joy ... Someone tried to look inside the indicators to understand how it works now? This is the same system as in September. In this version of MAv3, Xard abandoned the idea of ​​matching the trend line of the minor TF with the signal line of the major TF. And...this is where the differences end ... Yes, two indicators have been added, which, through markers, show the second point (obviously for especially gifted people who have not learned to count to two). That's all...
If I understood correctly, then the direction of trade by the Xard's words is determined by the semaphores of older periods. But as I said, these are just semaphores. Imagine a long and drawn-out trend that will repaint the big semaphore 5 times or more day after day. And you will enter a pullback trade against the market every time with this approach. This problem was inherent in all previous setups, nothing has changed in this.
At the same time, I don't want to blame Xard in any way ... It's just that this is an almost insoluble problem. I have been struggling with a solution for several years now. A lot of options and approaches have been tried. Result - no solution. Nor is it in this setup. And words, like ... you need to look at the direction of the trend in the older TF's - these are just words ... Not words, this is an indicator on the chart that will clearly indicate when you can enter a trade, and when it is better not to do it. Here's an example ...

Screenshot_706.png


The system gives a clear buy signal from 3470. But you shouldn't do this ... The correct signal for Friday is sell from 3499, which appeared at the end of the day. Those who bought from 3470 were still very lucky that this false upside jump was quite high ... The most likely development of events in such cases is a passage up by 100-120 pips to collect all stops of the crowd, and then down with two or three candles approximately 100 pips each without any second points. This happened more than once and will continue to happen, and everyone who will simply trade using semaphores will always fall into these traps. So, excuse me friends, if I ruined anyone's anticipation of profitable trading next week ... But I'm such an asshole, I always tell the truth, sometimes at the most inopportune time for this.
