M5/M1 Trade on EU - Setup 1 and Setup 2 Examples

 The following is a pictorial account of how we trade EUR/USD using our EUR/USD Strategy.
We Display M5 and M1 Charts side by side and compare both charts for entries.
Making sure we trade in the direction of Alligator on M5 (Trend Trading) and while
alligator on M5 is open we wait for Alligator to sleep on M1 to make new trades/entries. Simple.
We also do reversals like this. Which is also simple. if you see price gone too far too fast away from
Alligator on M5, any setup on M1 in opposite direction would be our reversal setup. I'll discuss this some other day in more detail, for now enjoy this story. thanks for watching!

and yes, at 17.25 (chart time) before this trade we took a saddle point entry off M5. For some reason I later exited for 66 pips without an M5 exit signal. I was perhaps in a different sort of mood yesterday. 
Setup 1 - Initial Entry

Here we being a trade off a saddle point 3 Rules are there

Looking at M5 chart you'd see a beautiful Saddle point after 17.20 candle. following or AIMS EA or Red Line could have brought 140pips. Still working on belief system I guess..... nah! it happens just move on...
The Above picture to the right side of the chart or M1, Setup 2 is developing. The two green candles should create an AIMS Level. 

The chart below shows it clearer . Alligator is open if we have this AIMS Level confirmed we will take another trade. 

This is where patience and belief come in handy



Setup 2.  We remained patient and we waited for our exit signal and did not exit just because price was retracing a bit. In fact it was creating a beautiful Setup 2. We have AIMS level now and Alligator is open. Though the "Opposite Side of AIMS",  is a bit away from us but trend is confirmed. Opposite AIMS is the AIMS level where our "maroon" stop loss line is. Upper AIMS are for Long Trades and Lower AIMS are for Short trade. (depending if the criteria for Setup, the Three Rules is Met) 

Some Sigh of relief han! I thought this might create an upper aims level
Here we now have AIMS level advanced warning
Again this is how it looked on M5/M1
here I was thinking "if it just breaks this aims level we will laugh"

Setup 2: Above we see that we now have upper AIMS Level not far from our Entry Spot and its a High probability Setup 2. Had we not entered at Setup 1 we would definitely take this trade. Though on this occasion I did not add on, this is a perfect spot for an add on. 2-3 add on is enough. For beginners I will not recommend adding on. If you are a beginner you need to trade only 1 trade until you remain profitable for at least 6 months. 


So it does, no worries relax chill out!
Since I was targeting peak of 3rd wave, ie. AIMS level on M5 I moved SL to BE (scalping methods)
Since its going just fine we lock in some pips just in case it decides to go crazy nearly there
Nicely done with 20 pips, however following our candles trailing strategy meant +35 pips. 
A Final Look at how it looked using M5/M1 window. Fifth wave Divergence in making on M5, while m1 going to fourth wave.
and here is a picture of a completed EW on M1 towards the end of the day. What a beautiful picture I say....
