What system – the IKH? If you look at things as s#*+stems you wont get nowhere swimming thru the sewage (no pun, jus a metaphor off a local rap tune). I like to see them as methods, or technix see, since they aren’t rigid probabilities but rather overall outlooks with unique…. I pointed out IKH is rather rigid, bordering on clumsy, that’s why I employ the Elliot Wave Theory. Other than the EWT, IKH and Price Action Analysis go so well together to remove this friction, leaving the pre-/post-signal issue all for the individual trader to blame. On the other hand what I need to do is keep to strict theory and quit posting signals – no-one follows them anyway.
When you say you miss everything totally, I understand; you haven’t come across the free EW tutorial at ActionForex.com. The variation is mainly the count; having it on five slightly correlating pairs pretty much ensures I have two to four charts to catch a wave at each week. Basically I have evolved some sort of profile/template which carries the EW count for E$, EY, G$, GY and $Y and their s+r lines, everything labeled up to here so they don’t get misplaced on the charts. About the timeframes, some objects of the template/profile are visible on only some timeframes: the Ichi is visible only on h4 and d1 (on h1 it’s useless, on h4 it’s a compromise); the s+r lines are visible on the frame they were set on & below to reduce overcrowding effect upon zooming out; the labels for the EW counts are such that progressively lower degrees are visible on progressively lower frames, and; you know you’re still newb if you have separate charts for different timeframes same pair.
The correlation amongst the pairs simplifies things further since they swing the same way most times; one pair (the E$ or G$, sometimes $Y) leads while the others follow two or three h4 bars behind, according to the EW counts and relative Ichi outlooks. It takes time to weave the profile – if you followed you know I jus figured it out a while back, I’m barely halfway organized – but once it’s up it’s like an aged vineyard. Expect to loose the precious profile/template now and then on mt4 – notice the new counts and missing s+r’s - wonder why I keep doing that. It’s a good thing though, it’s a sign everything has gotten crowded & stale; the new edition is always an upgrade. After the first time(s) setting the whole thing up, it becomes robotic clicks & copy-pasting tasks lasting two or so days part-time.
The various components are gathered around this forum, I’m not about to get into detail with them here; to reap more from this thread one will have to know the free EW resources at AF.com inside out, and have the count up on these or other pairs. It will be hard to get through the first few pages of the EW 10 lessons (make yourself a printed copy), if it proves impossible then get yourself sharp on Price-Action analysis and it’s alright. With Ichi alone, one has to get absolutely mechanical on those crosses, to the point of spreading an excel sheet for the statistics and most probable events (esp. P-Ksx and T-Ksx scenarios). All grails are equally holy, if waxed right.
