if just trading a single time frame after the 3 sets does it have to be a 2 sema before you draw your zone? sometimes the 1 shows up pretty quick but the 2 doesnt show up for a while or sometimes at all. I really haven't spent much time studying that indicator.
thanks


No it doesnt have to be a 2 sema or any sema for that fact. Sema is just to pinpoint extremes after the 3 sets.... and as a way to help teach what im looking for in a pullback(up mo, down mo, retest). Alot of my trades, dont even have a sema.
Your on the right track.

If you can draw the zones correctly, delete the semas... you dont need them.

Nice...there ya go! Thats it.
Alot of traders try to get the turn without waiting for the initial run to complete....

Your two charts are 100 percent what you look for! I DONT TRADE THE TURN. I trade the break then the retest of the initial run, and there is always a zone there. It really is simple!

Great chart!

LOL now I’m seeing what you mean Doji #-o
We are trading away from a zone AFTER that price made the “third wave”!

Thank you! :)

Well here it goes......

Doji, born to scalp, is doing a Long term Experiment.

I know its gonna try my patience, cause some anxiety, and hopefully in the end extreme joy!

Goal:
Long term (Monthly)
One Pair (USDJPY)
Stoploss (none currently, using OPM)
Target ( 25,000 pips )
$$$$ Whatever 25,000 pips amounts to

I know the thought at least 100 times will come to mind, "ARE WE THERE YET!" :lol:

more to come. (It may be a while, :P )
