Sorry to keep on about this but in case it helps, I do not see the point in having indis on your chart if you are not going to use them.

Both the channel and the 3 sema on your chart said the right trading direction was down.


no need to apologize, please keep telling what I?ve done wrong. That´s the only way I can master this. Learn from you all.
I agree that based upon the channel and the Sema 3 the trend is down. But I sure like to know how to correctly enter countertrend trades. In the chart you´re talking about I took this trade cause at that time of entry there was a sema 2 at the bottom ( also price was near the channel bottom at the moment) and my goal was to take this countertrade till the upper channel line.
So I?m a bit confused whether I should take countertrades at all or not? I´ve seen a lot of charts in this thread of people taking these kind of trades. Perhaps I?m just stubborn and need to hear it a zillion times before I see it. If I need to leave countertrades at the moment please tell me so 
Thanks for the input.
@Tmanbone, thanks so this is the way it´s best?

Enjoy your day

Do you consider this a valid entry? (arrow)
According the rules, it´s with the channel and the lower sema...

Yes an A trade, an A plus would be a 3 sema @ bottom channel, possibly breaking the channel by a small amount and angling up.

How did I know the chart would bring up this example!

I think it's a low % trade and Mr T thinks it's good. We all have different ways of seeing things.

The reason behind my last post was because with the 3 sema & channel in harmony, what I thought you missed in thinking about counter trades, was a pullback giving a good place to short.

I understand dchappy's idea is to wait for a sema to form outside the channel.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

Yes, i think i need to focus more on sema´s occurring around the channel lines itself.

And, i think i still miss a lot of things, but i´m so glad for all of your comments!

Thanks,
Phil

I´ve got some questions about the setup. I thought i better post them here so all who´s interested can download them.

I´ve attached a zip-file which contains the needed indicators and templates i use. There´s also a rangebar indicator which is located in a seperated folder in the zip file and has a instructions file with it. Just copy the indicator files and rangebar files to the indicator folder. Templates to the template folder. Now first of all you need to open a M1 chart and drop the rangebar indie on this chart. Set the tickcount to the range you want and make sure the ´allow dll´ i checked. After done this you can open up a offline chart (pair with the M2). But this is described in the instructions file. I only modified the PM_ indicators and will modify some more.

I hope you´re able to install this all and i did not confuse you.
All credits goes to Chappy, Tro, Flinux and i´m sure i´m forgetting someone!

Let us all know how your trades are doing.

Enjoy your day, Phil

Enjoy your day.

Took the trade while price was close to the lower channelline.
Channel pointing up, sema 3 at the bottom.

Entered and had a cup of coffee with my wife.
On returning i saw my automated trailing stop was enabled which gave a nice profit :)

Oh, and, blush... the lotsize was quite bigger due to testing before on demo and i didn´t reset it... Shamefull i know, but lucky me.

But look at the signal, quite clear.

Have fun.

Well done Phil.

Just IMHO again, but: "But look at the signal, quite clear. "
Know what you are looking for and wait for it. Concentrate on making the most from these moves. Watch what happens if you set a TP at the centre channel instead of using a trailing stop.

From you above chart watch for a pullback, if it confirms the 3 sema, do the trade again. I don't know how the move progressed, but I think better to focus on this rather than counter trades.
