It must be past time for me to go to sleep. I've got to admit the 3Semafor and EAs facinate me. Take a look at the attached charts. Wouldn't it be something if we had the emotional maturity to trade from 3Sema to 3Sema? I wonder if an EA could be written to trade 3 to 3 in whatever time frame you want and whatever pair(s) you choose?

The Semafors float along with the forming bar, and if need be jump over to the newer forming bar at the new bar start time change.

I've posted the EURJPY, USDJPY and GBPUSD in either M5 or M1 below with Semafors, MO Zones and Regression Lines.

Hello Patch.


I´ve never really used semafor. Ill give them a try next week and Ill post a more complete review on it. FOr what I can see now sema show HH and LL, so it use is basically TRO TZ ( I wonder why :roll:
)

There was a time I used EA´s and some of them work, but nore are realible on the med- or long term. Art cannot be programmed. But It may work though.

hey patch, great idea.. but won't be it a problem that the 3 semaphore always repaints?

First and foremost welcome to my favorite forex trading site.

In this your first post you have recognized the heart of the question. The answer is our challenge. When a 3Semafor high goes to a 3S low on any chart, pips are the results. When is it a retrace and when is it a reverse? Does it matter? How can we profit from this? How do we protect our profits from this same thing? And I always wonder if this can be coded into an auto trader?

Right now I have more questions than answers.

Hi Patch,

Personally I think the result of automatic trading is not always what u expect. There is always limitation n I understand why u want it to be automatic. But manual is better. Thats the art of trading.

Any system u used, u need to do it right. Thats the key. Never think, just do it.

Btw, what r u questions??? :)

hi patch, and thanks so much for the welcome!
yes, i suppose one of the potential solutions is to wait X number of bars after the 3 semaphore appears, that was we'll be more certain that it's in the right place even tho it's not 100% guarantee..

kreslik, patch's post had a total of 5 questions in there but i think u knew that :P

Helmy HAR

I agree 100% with your post at 4.77pm yesterday. I wonder if you can fill in what the unexpected results of auto trading are? Also please explain why why manual trading is better?

Is the difficulty in an auto trade AE, the definitions and conditions of entry and exited being explicitly stated? Computers in my view, offer a great opportunity for auto-trading, though at this point we are the pioneers.

For a long time people said we couldn't land a man on the moon, then along comes a President, JFK, and a man was walking on the moon, what about 10 years later. I say, AutoTrading is the trend of the future.

Also, any AE I code or get coded, I will have time start and stops, and will be sitting in front of my computer the entire time any live trades are in the market.

Please tell me your additional thoughts and response.
