London. But getting the end of day candle in my early morning would be more convenient than at midnight - for domestic reasons!

Thanks for the broker link.

Ash...

I see that in AshFXV2 you set the initial SL at the most recent swing H or swing L. In V1 - which I have only just looked at - you suggested the H or L of that day's candle which in many cases will give a significantly smaller stop. Is this change based on your experience of results with V1 or is it to do with new factors in V2?

My admittedly tiny and very unsystematic five hour manual backtesting of the latest version rarely seemed to need anything like the full swing H or L to protect it. Maybe we could use a 50% fib of the swing H or L or revert to the SL instructions for V1?

Better to spread the risk (my case 2% of account) on twice as many lots by using half the SL if we can. Although I realise of course there is a prospect of being stopped out more frequently. I wonder if you, or anyone, have any rhoughts/stats on this?

This is a most refreshing thread. Thanks Ash and everyone here.

About using the swing high/low for each trade, after rigorously testing the system, I have determined that this is the best place for a stop loss. On SOME trades, using your discretion, you may use the recent day's high/low as your SL, and this would also work. Also, contrary to what you said, this is not different to Version 1, because V1 also used the recent swing high/low for it's stops, for most of its trades (since most turned out to be "SS Trades" anyway).

I wanted to make the system easy to use, and consistent, and have found more consistency using the new methods outlined in V2.

Having said that, you are free to test out what you think will be more productive, and I'd appreciate if you could post your findings here, because of course, my system isn't perfect!

Default 15th March Trades

Ok guys, tonight I will be taking NO trades.

There is only one valid signal, the CAD/JPY, but it just looks like a possible ugly trade. Take a look at the attached pic.

Firstly, look at the Stochs, they were so messy/zig-zaggy prior to actually producing a signal.

Secondly, look at the candles before the current candle. Way too much ranging/choppiness there for me I'm afraid.

Thirdly, look at the current candle, it's upper wick is rather long.

These reasons combined are enough for me not to take this trade.

If anyone here is intent on taking it, I would suggest trading smaller lots than usual.

Understood and thanks for coming back so promptly. I'll try and do some further research and post here.

I was hoping someone would make an indicator. But this is not exactly correct, according to the rules. It seems that this indicator gives signals for buy even when the candle is red, and for sell even when the candle is green. Also, it gives a signal several candles after the first PSAR dot appears and we are only supposed to trade on the first PSAR dot.

There may be other problems too, but that is all that I saw. Can someone fix this indicator? It would be nice to have.

Thank you.

Mike

Great job! This looks perfect as far as I can tell. By the way, looking at backtesting this system looks very profitable!

Thank you both! Only the first PSAR candle when closing. It's easier that way.

Many thanks for your tremendous generosity once again SWINGMAN. Always great to see you on forums.

Can one dream of a dashboard too?

SwingMan, one other thing, the arrow needs to appear only with a green candle for long and a red candle for short. Can you make this change?

The nice feature of Swingman's ashfx2 signals is not only has pop up alerts but also email alert. This can be set up to sms alerts on your mobile with the right mobile service provider. This makes life easier for lower TF trading. 4h and 1h charts with a ema100 as filter is great to trade with the higher time frame trend.

Thanks again to the kindness of swingman. Great talent !

Default GPB/USD possible trade

this looks like a possible trade.......the downtrend look like it will be broken if we get a close above this level, so a possible long trade.

Ash mentions to use a MT4 platform without a SUNDAY candle to get the correct signals. He uses FXDD as the reference MT4 platform to get the correct signals.

Default AshFX2 Signals

Do I allow DLL Imports for the indicator supplied by Swingman?

And how do I set up the Send E-mail Signals? Right now its "false" Do I just replace it with true? How about my e-mail address?

Also in the input there is the Send Alert Signal which is also "false" by default. Do I need to change this?

Thanks.

Irathi, how do you use the ema100 as a filter? can you kindly share the technique?

Apologies, still a newbie.

100EMA on a daily chart is considered the 20 ema on a weekly.20x5days=100.Consider the BB bands ,20ema is the middle line.

Trade in the direction of this 100ema on daily charts when the signals appear.

If the price is above the 100ema buy on the buy signals. Ignore the sell signals. AND vice versa. Bingo! you are trading with weekly (higher TF) participation. This strategy is for trending markets. I do not trade ranging markets. Many traders trade smaller TF in a ranging market.

This is my personal filter and no means to be taken as ASHFX2 rules.

My appreciation and thanks to ASHFX for this easy strategy.

Default Ashfx 2 signal indicator for swingman

I am so thankful for your wonderful indicator.

I have been putting on my charts. There seems to be some interference when your indicator is on the charts and I use the fib retracement and ext tool.

Once I draw a fib study on one TF and change to another TF the fib lines disappear.

I tried this on IBFX and ACTIVTRADERS Mt4 platforms. Both platforms are showing the same problem. Is this a bug that could be fixed?

Is is very important when doing fib studies on the higher Tf it stays when going to the smaller TF.
Thanks.

OK, the indicator delete all grafic objects... I fixed this.

In the current version they are not alerts, and I work to this feature.
For you (sweet dreams...) gives a DashBoard in the next days, if the signals indicator works properly.

Thanks for the indicator, Swingman. Fantasticl.

Does your reply to Irathi above mean you have already fixed the delete problem or are you working on it? I am using the last version (from your post #173) and it clears the graphic objects.

Bear in mind I am v. new to Ash's system but here is why I wouldn't take it. 1) top wick is too long, 2) Against trend.
