Frank D. of Indiana recently switched from trading long term stocks and options trading to short term futures. This switch was the result of a losing short position in the Yen that was contradicted when price skyrocketed due to Japan’s seismic activity in March.
While searching for a new way to trade, Frank came across other day tradings systems and found them to be too convoluted. Frank describes these non-DTTW systems as “an interpretation mess.” He was pleased to see our courses are based on simple price action techniques, using quick analysis without indicators or cluttered charts.
Frank purchased our scalping courses and found success paper trading a week, then moving to live trading with a daily average of $200 using a single contract. Frank also purchased the Atlas Line and has been paper testing the system in recent days. His experience with the Atlas Line has also been very positive.
The best way to go about Scalping is to have both price action methods in your repertoire. The Scalping Mastery Combo Package includes both techniques, the Price Action Scalping Course for the E-Mini and the Trade Scalper (for the E-Mini and other markets). You can find out the difference between both systems by visiting the Mastery page. As always, these techniques are included/taught in the Private Mentorship Program.
If you missed the live trading webinar with John Paul, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that the webinar was recorded and you can watch it below.
The bad news is that you missed the 2 trades he took using the Atlas Line live during the webinar. The room was booked to capacity and there will be a next time, we promise.
If you have questions or would like to sign up for the any of the price action courses, or need mentorship/coaching details please visit the home page www.daytradetowin.com.
Today’s first Atlas Line trade was Long Pullback with a target of 2.75 points (11 ticks). We entered at 1181.50. After a short time lapse, we were filled at our exact profit target of 1184.25. Yesterday (September 6, 2011), was another great day on the ES (E-Mini S&P futures). Atlas Line users saw several long signals prior to a long, bullish trend that consumed most of the day. This trend allowed for numerous Strength and Pullback trades. If you took advantage of each setup, you probably made an easy 10 points. Determining where to place profit targets, stops, identifying setups, and other tricks of the trade are taught in the live training session that’s included with purchase.
This Friday, we’re having a free webinar where you can come ask questions and observe the Atlas Line plot in real-time.
When: Friday, September 9 at 10:00 a.m. US/Eastern.

We have a Price Action Webinar scheduled this Friday, September 9 at 10:00 a.m. US/Eastern. Here’s the link to attend:
That handsome man in the video above is Oscar G. from Portland, OR. You may remember him from a testimonial he did back in July, 2010. Oscar was the first to participate in the Day Trade to Win Private Mentorship Program. In his most recent video, Oscar describes his trading experiences since that time. Oscar is a successful full-time income trader, crediting his success to the support and price action products of Day Trade to Win. He says his most successful month brought in $41,000 due to his Mentorship education with John Paul.

Part 1: Making Profit from the Jobless Claims Report
The jobless economic report on August 25, 2011 caused a huge green candle around 9:15 a.m. The candle was the result of traders covering their short positions. Any Bloomberg red star news events are best avoided as the market can unpredictably move strongly. There’s really no correlation between “positive” news events driving price higher or “negative” news events drive price to new lows. To prove this, the jobless report said there were fewer jobs and then E-mini price went up. In the Mentorship Program, John has a couple strategies he teaches his students to create profit out of news event volatility. You can see how he makes the jobless report work in his favor by producing a 3.5 point winner. A twist of irony, eh?
Part 2: Missed Atlas Line Trade – Paying Attention is Key
We post a lot of futures trading videos showing John Paul’s perfect trades. While he’s successful to a very high degree, you can see how trades can slip away from even the best traders who are late to arrive at the party. Paying attention, placing your orders in advance / on-time is key. The Atlas Line produced the right signal on the E-Mini, but because John wasn’t paying attention, it resulted in a missed opportunity of around four points. See how this Short signal shows up at 1175. The trade then starts to run away and John’s limit order does not follow. His only option is to look for Atlas Line Strength Trades and Pullbacks. When trades don’t work in your favor, it’s best to just let them go. Another opportunity is on its way – learn from your mistakes and move on!
Part 3: Atlas Line Strength Trade
Soon after John missed the first Atlas Line trade, he noticed an Strength setup. Using the fact that price was below the Atlas Line, he went short according the the Strength Trade rules. You can see how it would be disadvantageous to chase after price. Hold those limit orders! He sets up a two point profit target with three stops in place. Target filled. That’s five points using the Atlas Line – not to count the other E-mini trading techniques that could have been used.
Finally, we’d like to congratulate William C. from Indian Head, MD for winning the free Mentorship drawing. He will be attending the eight weeks of training with included courses and software along with other enrolled students. If you’d like to enroll, complete the form on the Private Mentorship page and we’ll be in touch with the details. Coaching starts this Monday, August 29.
Many traders attended today’s webinar to gain an understanding of how the ABC Pattern can be used to determine the best times of the day to trade the E-mini and other markets. Traders also attended to see how the Atlas Line signaled trades in real-time. Traders called out the markets and asked questions while John Paul gave answers and shared his charts. Watch the video above to see what happened!

E-mini Atlas Line Trading August 18, 19 and 22, 2011
The Atlas Line on the E-mini today had a short setup at 1136.5 on a bounce trade. Based on the current market conditions, two to three points were possible. Remember, when we trade based on price action, we only trade on what the market can produce. There were also Pullback trades. John Paul then scrolls through to Friday’s E-mini activity. The early Dbl Bar Short signals did not work in our favor, but the multiple long signals definitely made up for it. On Thursday, a signal Short signal was all we needed for the day. You can really get an idea of how accurate the Atlas Line is. This is an unfiltered, day-to-day recap.
E-mini Atlas Line Trading August 22, 2011
This video shows the rest of the day, continuing where we left of with the last video. John Paul places a live order on the short side based on an Atlas Line Strength setup. The trade was good for $1500. This Strength setup, along with the Pullback and other unique setups are taught in the webinar training session with purchase. John also goes over the three different types of stops and how they are used: Prove-It, Time-Based and Catastrophic.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that the Atlas Line is included with purchase of the eight week coaching program. The Atlas Line is used in combination with other price action methods to achieve a level of unparalleled price action understanding.
What a surprise today! Price tanked by a large margin similar to market behavior a couple of weeks ago. The Atlas Line® was spot on prior to this huge move down. If you knew to stay out of long trades and go short, you would have reaped the benefits. The Atlas Line produced a short signal at 1151.75. So how did this work out? At 1:50 in the video, you can see a perfect example of how going short was great, offering multiple Pullback trade opportunities. Later in the day (near market close), you can see an intersection. Remember that the day trading education class (at a reduced group rate) begin Monday, August 29. The Atlas Line works for other types of futures trading and currency trading for NinjaTrader, eSignal and TradeStation. Such wide support is possible because the Atlas Line is entirely based on price action.
When two consecutive closings appear below the Atlas Line®, it’s time to go short. The Atlas Line plots a Short order text signal when this occurs. In the video, you can see how this rule works in our favor using a live trading account.
John uses three stops for trading most of the time: a Catastrophic Stop, a Prove-It Stop and a Time Based Stop. These are mentioned in the video. In the live training session that’s included with purchase, John goes into more detail about these stops and the many trades that are unique to the Atlas Line. This short trade was worth about $1000 profit based on the amount of contracts in use. eSignal and TradeStation are also supported. NinjaTrader is John’s preference and is used in most of our videos and coaching lessons. Remember, the Atlas Line works for more than just E-mini trading. Many traders use the Atlas Line on markets like the Crude Oil and Euro on a daily basis. Because the software is based on price action, trading these other markets can be done on-the-fly, with no need for configuration. The Atlas Line looks on how price has performed up until the current moment before producing order signals. Day trading coach John Paul will show you how to correct the time zone parameter to market open time based on your time zone.
Today 8-12-11, John Paul daringly takes a live trade during volatile E-mini market conditions. His entry was based on the Atlas Line®’s exact entry red Dbl Bar Short signal you see printed on the chart live as it happened. The Atlas Line® automatically produces these order signals ahead of time, letting you know in advance where to be be (either long or short). You’ll notice that John calls the short signal before the Atlas Line produced it. The Atlas Line® rules and objective way to trade are taught so you know these orders in advance too!
A profit target of 5 to 6 points is used which is based on the ATR (Average True Range). He uses two stop types – a “Prove It” stop and a “Time-Based” stop. Both stops are taught in the live training that’s included with purchase. He’s going for 6.25 points, equivalent to $1562.50 trading five contracts. If you took a similar trade, you could be done for the day in just a few minutes! John Paul then moves his profit target up shortly to eventually take 4.25 Pts or $1062.50 of Profit.
In two weeks, we will be offering an extended, late summer sales event for the Group Private Mentorship Program. The Atlas Line and all other DTTW software and methods are included. It’s an excellent deal! To found out more email [email protected] or call the toll free 888-607-0008.
