If price takes off as the result of some news event there may not be any retracements, in this case, there was a small retracement at the open but not enough for a dot to appear. As already mentioned you could have used the Index Entry signal, it is a more risky entry but can have big rewards. Way back in this thread, Xard talks about entering when price crosses the moving averages after reversing at a large Semaphore. However, he also states that it is a higher risk to take a trade using that method, by waiting for the second dot it is much lower risk.

You will not achieve perfection and there is no point getting frustrated about it. Accept that you will not get in on every move, you will have taken profit and price continued on and you could have made 3 times as much profit and some trades will be losers!

Here is what Xard said recently about entries.
"The message is always the same, take the trade off the 2nd Dot.
It is the best place for an entry, it's where price sets itself up for a move.
It is nothing new, it's what is on all of my previous setups.
The 15m and the 5min TFs show the 2nd dot more often than the 1hr, 4hr & Daily. It is just smaller cycles is all.
If you are an investor then invest your money off the 2nd dot on the 4hr or Daily chart.
If you are an intraday trader then trade off the 2nd dot on the 15min or 5min chart (more frequent usually every day and sometimes twice a day)."
nil desperandum

Hello trader2000 & tmostafa007,

Starting from the beginning, and i see your doubts, and maybe i can help you.

My idea and vision:
  • After testing the "Cagliostro's Alkemix Trading System" past weekend on BTCUSD, and see every day Neroloft happier with in M1 give me some ideas to understand the logic using a lower timeframe, like M5 or i love the idea using M1
Be Objective on your learning path:
  • Just like the DaveTrader said in post #1 there are all information you need to understand this wonderful strategy
  • Don't forget read the previous post from xard777 is easy to understand, there are five of them with a powerful message
  • Read with attention, if not understand, try one 2 or more than 10 times, no problem with that
Motivation, and focus:
  • I understand sometimes is hard because we are trying to catch all trend and imagine all scenarios when we receive alerts but is in not that way. I made those errors in the past, and with this strategy is all there in only zip, but with rules, discipline, and is possible life changer.
  • It's crazy i know but believe is possible.

Personal notes about the entry on XAUUSD yesterday, and write and easy write language: #1. BIGSemaUP -> Identity the major trend, is consider an entry point, and yes sometimes i consider that one
#2. 4Th minidot -> If you see an number, means we have an triangle to identify is an buy trend
#3. DailyOpen -> Is only green, so is a buy
...
And during the position you see opposite semaarrow, 2nd semaarrow with all conditions, but no problem, if have an good money management, don´t blow your accounts
...
#4. BIGSemaDown -> and see the triangles, and minidots that same color as bigsema close all, ok the profit is nothing. But no problem, the next one is greatest (this is a mindset i used everyday)
#5. Now we have same rules in opposite direction, and after 10 minidot and wait is terrible, because we are in M1 see the quantity of alerts,..
#6. DailyOpen is on red, perfect
#7. ADR level is % is negative, and let's go again :)
#1. Is my entry point
#2 After all conditions are matched in opposite signal is a closed position.

Continue:
  • Trading is not about taking millions of pips overnight, it requires a lot of discipline, education and, of course, a lot of patience to enter at the right moment.
Advice:
  • One tool available we have when we are using MT4 is an opportunity to do a strategy tester and see the patterns, taking some notes and understand the strategy in a better way.
  • Start with M15, next M5 and next M1 and see and take your time, and next let's do this and share ideas to grow up and learn together.
  • Choose your pairs wisely, in my case I'm using only BTCUSD, US30, XAUUSD, XTIUSD
Next steps:
  • What do you think about this idea?
  • Now, you understand all this points?
  • Can you explain in detail what is your doubt?

Thank you for bringing this up, as I failed to mention it is a more risky entry.

With that, I will say that when all other Xard conditions are met, the stepMA entry signal has been solid. I do find myself with a quicker trigger finger to take my profits and run in those set ups. But as time goes by, that is easing up as well.

Dear Curioso,
Thanks for your explanation, I really appreciate the amazing answer. I have a lot of questions, but I'm not ready to ask them all right now. I'll keep testing your idea and will start posting every day from next Monday with before-and-after pictures of each trade I take, so I can learn from you and other group members.

I have a question on my mind right now. From what I understand, I should follow the daily trend direction, meaning I shouldn't open a sell trade if the daily open is green, and vice versa. Is that correct?

You avoid fake signals/ enter criteria by using several confirmations:

1- Big circle
2- Second circle with a number
3- Crossing the 55 MA
4- Ribbon shifting to the direction color
5- Following the daily direction as mentioned above
6- ADR must be +15% for a buy, -15% for a sell

For exiting trades:

1- Close the trade once the big circle appears in the opposite direction

[*] What about stop-loss? Do you use a preset value, a fixed number of pips, or is there an indicator or signal you follow?

Also, The big issue I faced before was that the structure of circles would change based on the direction and candle movement. The big circle would disappear, and the second dot's location would either change or hide altogether.

i will keep ask you :)

The Time frame i have to follow is just 1M correct?
Finally, can you share with me the final list of indicators and the template you are using?

Again thanks for your support bro

Bro,

These are the indicators I'm using. Please confirm if they are correct, and let me know which ones should have the alerts activated.

I personally also use liquidity lines from ATS V6 to see whether the market is setting up a big move and where it is going.

Market makers can only enter when enough liquidity has been taken.

If you want to give it a try you can get it from here:
post1295535942.html#p1295535942

I attached the set file for ATS to only show liquidity.

How can I avoid this issue, or what should I focus on that I might have missed in this trade? that is based on my understanding
There are a lot more signals on the m1 chart. Especially when it’s forming a consolidation zone. The odds of getting in and out w SL or break even are greatly increased. The m1 chart is a great place to learn risk management on demo. But if you’re going to trade it, you need to take your small victories and get out when a large semafor appears against you. Something else to consider is waiting for price to retest the daily open line, just as you would a strong s/r level.

If we were looking at your chart and everything looked the same, except it was a m15 chart, the price movement from your entry to the big arrow semafor would be good money. But at your entry, it is still flirting with consolidation, no trade.
