A couple questions: 1) Are you using the 1-2-or-3 Semafor in your trading? If so or if not, please explain? What are your thoughts of it's dynamic movement?
2) In your previous post you use a big green candle outline to show the I believe H1 candle. Could you post this indicator so I could download it. It is exactly what I am looking for.
3) You are trading the BZ on an M1 chart with how many entries? Am I correct to assume then next candle you trade off is the next M1 candle at the start of the next hour?
4) How did you come up with your entry and profit and stop targets?

Welcome Patch, The sema is just a visual crutch at this point, but helps me to see extremes in price. It's like a warning signal to be on my finger tips. I'm most concerned with the 3 sema and the 2 with a little less concern but still concern. Yes I'm using the 1hr candle overlaid on a 1 minute chart. TRO has run stats on the buy zone, the stats that he ran tell him that, quoting from memory don't hold me to it, the buy zone 3-4 pips from the open with a 6-7 pip target and a 7-8 pip stop is the most profitable over time. The TR2009_BuyZone_BFD is default to these settings. I prefer the TRO_BuyZone_Time set to 4 pip trigger 15 pip target and 7 pip stop, set on Alpari's time Alpari's 1:00 = MB Trading's 19:00 est. The start of the buy zone can be set to your preference. I am experimenting with these settings. The candle indi is candles_m-Candles_m.

Yeah if you got Skype I think a few people setup a chat room there.

And there is also the "two percent club" on Paltalk.

Good luck.
