High Accuracy Forex SEMAFOR MACD System – The Great System To Trade and Place Stop Losses Orders Effectively. I am a big fan of the SEMFOR, great and powerful “re-painting” indicator.
So let’s start by addressing “re-painting indicators“. First – Forex prices are not static. Second, trading is not an exact science.
There are a lot of gray area’s in trading and if you cannot accept this then you are in for some painful days.
If I call you at 9 am and tell you the high printed at 1.6395 – is there any guarantee that at 9:05 there won’t be a new high?
So what is re-painting other than the indicator doing what it is supposed to do and alert you that a new high has printed.
If the semafor has painted a new high, we will be looking for an edge.
If you enter a trade solely based upon a semafor painting – you are essentially entering trades every time a new high or low is made. If you can find an edge in doing this, more power to you and there is no need to continue reading as you are a market wizard.
So if anywhere someone complains about repainting, be prepared to be told that trading is not for you!
Once a high semafor is painted, wait for a buy signal (red) but do nothing – instead wait for the next sell signal from filter indicators and enter short.
Use the trading system for M30 time frame or higher.

First of all, the beauty of the stop-loss order is that it costs nothing to implement. Your regular commission is charged only once the stop-loss price has been reached.
Most importantly, a stop loss allows decision making to be free from any emotional influences.
