Should a Black Dog point up, then we would trade only with the blue arrows. How simple is that?
That is the basis of the original Black Dog and the trading system as a whole, although we no longer use it but we do use the same principles with all our methods with most of our members trading the Quick Fix or the MTF2/3.
Of course we take other things into account but that is the basis of the method that has served me well for many years of trading. I will not trade any other method in this lifetime.
Black Dog Quick Fix
Thank you for reading about the Black Dogs. Joining our great community will certainly help you in your trading. Never trade alone again. Our forum and Trading Room are at your service on becoming a member. There are people from all around the globe all trading the currency markets and we tend to help each other in our strategies and methods.
We very rarely actively trade our flagship, the original Black Dog system, and recommend all new members follow a suggested plan. That is to read and study the original system only to get the principles and concepts that we use into your trading brain and to understand how we look at the markets. This can be done in parallel to studying and trading our Quick Fix which has similar concepts. Once the QF is mastered then it is time to move on to our MTF2. The QF is a fine system and one that many a budding pirate has attempted miserably to copy. We have many members who purchased from pirates only to end up joining the dogs later. Please beware.
Why have a Quick Fix?
Well, we used to have our original BD, MTF1, MTF2, and MTF3..!! It was decided that this was just too much. Information overload. As you know, BD is no longer traded and MTF1 and MTF3 have been shelved but are available for perusal in our Officer's 50 Club. The O50 Club is for the members who become regulars. That still leaves two excellent systems. Both very similar, by the way. And besides, the Quick Fix does exactly that - it gets you going in the shortest possible time.
Wanna see some charts of the QF?
The following charts only show one of our indicators for clarity. Have no illusions about how good these methods are.
Most of the charts below show close of play on a Friday, they were not cherry-picked. I do not actively trade all of those shown below as I like to concentrate on only two or three. Nevertheless, they show good areas of entry and I say 'areas' because at Black Dog we DO NOT trade indicators. We look for a specific entry situation after the alerts have dragged us to a particular currency pair. I generally trade the 15 minute time frame but we have a selection down below for you. Here's the GBPCHF M15:
Big news affected Cable below too - I tend to stand aside when these news announcements are looming as I have been caught out too many times trying to predict or anticipate moves. Better to just let the system work for you.
The Black Dogs (any system) work on any time frame and trading vehicle but the Daily chart of the EURCHF below is too slow for my patience. I suppose I am a scalper at heart. But there are many traders who do prefer the higher time frames - those at work, for instance, or with other commitments.
Just out of curiosity, on the second of the two signals on the EURCHF above there were actually over 500 pips in the move. There was then a retrace followed by a further drop of well over 1300 pips. I must take another look at this Daily time frame..!!
We have a EURJPY chart next, of the H4 time frame - again, too slow for me but ok for some. Only two signals on this chart as the previous down signals were invalid due to our other confirmers. That is no problem as we cannot expect to trade every signal.
The H1 time frame (1 hour) is the same as any other - with plenty of valid signals. It's up to you how you approach tackling the problem. This was the only valid signal on this particular Friday which came at around midday GMT.
The Dow Jones Index is another one that I trade regularly but not on the H1 as shown next. If your broker provides indices then it's worth having a look at the Dow.
Carrying on with the theme of showing the regular time frames we now have a 30 minute chart of the EURUSD showing three signals. Now, just to describe the way I trade for a mo (assuming I did the 30 minute) - the third signal would not have tempted me as the news announcement was still in play. The effects of it were obviously rejected and price returned to pre-news levels. I stand well aside during this volatility.
The second signal does not come into play either as I would have already been in the trade from the first signal before the second signal arrived. Remember, we do not enter on these signals - they tell us that something is happening and we then have to make a decision. Here's the chart:
We do not have many in our Trading Room who are enamoured with trading Gold - but some do and they do well. Personally I never did do well with it and stay with my two currencies and the Dow. Next, we have a 5 minute chart:
Here's another H1 chart this time of Brent showing two decent signals. I won't comment further.
I'd better close the charts with a M1 one minute time frame. Personally, I believe this time frame is for losers - and I'm one of them. Just too fast for me as I cannot get my trading brain in sync with that speed. Put me onto the M15 time frame and it's a totally different story. Horses for courses.
The Black Dog Quick Fix was originally sold as a seperate system but we decided to incorporate it all within the once-only purchase price. There is nothing more to pay with the Dogs. You show faith in us by purchasing the Dogs - we try to reciprocate in providing all the assistance we can. But please bear in mind that we like to trade too. We now have many members who give up their own time in helping others to become better traders. Our forum and Trading Room is very very friendly and we have the occasional banter when the markets are quiet. It sure beats staring at the charts all day on your lonesome.
We hope that you join us in trading the dogs but if not then please let me wish you all the best in your trading.
The Best of the Best - the MTF's
Our Mini Trend-Finders (or MTFs) are the best we have and they are used by a large percentage of BD traders. Though it must be said that the QF takes its fair share too. As with all Black Dog methods you can mix and match if it so pleases you. The idea, after all, is to make profits no matter what it takes and Black Dog understands that not all traders are the same. Some like a clear trading screen while others prefer both of our confirming indicators at the bottom. Some even enter trades within our No Trade Zone if the signal is strong enough, while others have a fixed rule about this.
Whatever the case, Black Dog will generate the signals for you which will enable those trading decisions to be made with confidence. As with all Black Dog methods, the following applies:
- trade ANY time frame
- trade ANY chart or instrument
- trade using Metatrader 4
- trade in our live Trading Room with other traders from around the globe
- have access to our FORUM, except the Officer's 50 Club which requires 50 posts for automatic entry
- start your own journal in our Forum, post your trades for discussion
- become proficient and help other new traders
- enjoy our library and Free Stuff sections
- become a Black Dog affiliate and make extra, and/or join our Home Business ventures
One thing is for sure, you will be joining one of the friendliest forums on the net - everyone helps everyone else, if possible. There is always somebody who will have an answer for you. One interesting fact is that we occasionally see traders disappear..!! I suppose having that system-hopping instinct is hard to give up, but invariably we see them back in the fold before too long. Quote - "No matter what system I try, I always come back to the Dogs"
Anyway, enough of the fluff, we are not very good at it. Please notice that we don't use the 'standard' sales page phrases - 'Shocking Discovery' or 'Forex Loophole' and the beautiful 'Make $10,000 in a day from a $50 account'. Neither do we show the array of non-existent CDs, nor do we show the false statements and 'time-sensitive-join-now-or-else' gimmicks. We don't use flashing lights, dancing girls, or ringing bells and whistles. It's fantastic if you do join us, but not the end of the world if you don't. We all know it is a battle against Mother Forex and traders should stick together and wish each other well. The best of luck to you.
I'll now show you some photos of me on a beach with my laptop and a pina colada on the table next to me. Yes, I'm trading and making a fortune..!! No, better not cos it wouldn't be true. Yes, I have moved to Spain to avoid the UK weather and trading has allowed me to do that. But that's where it ends. I'm the same as the next guy.
Back to trading. As usual we'll show you some charts of the MTF3, minus indicators as we don't want to give the game away, do we?
All the charts shown below are snapped at close of play on Friday. First we have the forex EURJPY 15 minute, three signals today but the first was rather early for me.
The EURUSD had two signals, the second rather better than the first. But the idea when intra-day trading is not to let a winner become a loser as with the first of the two signals..
Cable had similar two set ups to the previous chart. No further comment.
Gold 15 minute has been pretty good just lately if you be very careful. Three beauts here - and a fourth very early in the morning - UK time.
Onto the Daily time frame to show that the Dogs can be used on any time frame. The FTSE being very generous since the last week of April giving around 300 points.
Brent oil on the 15 minute - a couple of great trades there.
Just to show that the Dogs work on stocks - here's another Daily time frame.
But what about all the other arrows that were not-so-good trades?
Well, this is where our confirming indicators come into play. One or both. We also have a No Trade Zone which keeps us out of a lot of trouble. When trading the lower time frames then we avoid news - this can be very volatile, but news is required to make the market move so we can get into those juicy moves. We just give it a little time to settle down, is all. We have a few other tricks up our sleeve too to help us in the daily battle with Mother Forex.
The point is, at Black Dog, we DO NOT trade the arrows, or any other indicator. They simply indicate. We have well-used and battle-tested means of entering any market by letting IT come to US and not the other way around with us chasing the market. Of course, all this comes to nothing if a trader cannot follow simple rules. This is the crux of the problem and generally the answer to a failed trade. We tout Patience and Discipline like a well-used record player.
They say that 95% of traders lose money or blow their account, probably leaving the trading scene altogether which is a crying shame. Personally I think it is higher than that. I very quickly realised the reasons for this and altered my tune accordingly and drastically. I had to take a fresh look at tackling this business cos there sure is some fantastic money to be made IF you know what you are doing. It didn't take me very long to see that what everyone was doing and using had been done and used over the years with no great success. Everyone but everyone uses the same old methods with the same old outcome - failure.
Don't do and use what the losers do and use. Think outside the box. Here's another point to consider - if the brokers are giving you, for free, all these fantastic indicators then you can be sure as hell that they do not work. Think about it. It's not rocket science. They are not going to supply you with the means to take lots of money off them - nothing can be surer. This is where Black Dog comes to the rescue.
Many thanks for reading.
See you on the inside.
