S&P U.S. Credit Rating – News Event Tanks Markets

The S&P’s debt rating service projected a poor credit rating for the U.S. today. With this big news, the markets tanked. We pulled up a couple of charts to see how the Atlas Line performed for traders in two separate markets: the E-Mini S&P and Crude Light.

E-Mini S&P (ES) – April 18, 2011
"
The Atlas Line was spot on in the E-Mini S&P, advising two short orders. The first order was a Double Bar Short, the second, an Atlas Line Pullback Trade. In case you don’t know what a Pullback Trade is, John Paul teaches traders how to identify them in the webinar included with purchase.

Crude Light (CL) – April 18, 2011
"
Three winning trades. First, a Double Bar Short signal followed by two Pullback trades. When news about the U.S. comes out that is revered with such high importance, there’s a great effect on all markets. We recommend waiting until the news event volatility has subsided before using price action software like the Atlas Line.

How to Find E-Mini S&P and Euro Trades Using the Atlas Line

It’s time to turn up the volume and open your mind as John Paul demonstrates two unbelievable trades. They’re so good, we’re letting the trades themselves do the talking.

At first, he does the unthinkable: going short right after three consecutive large green candles. Why? The Atlas Line said so. Price was headed toward the Atlas Line, indicating an Atlas Line pull back trade (at least two bars pulling back followed by one candle closing in the red). ORDER FILLED. This resulted in a nice 1 point winner based on only on price action and the Atlas Line.

Next, we had a crazy good time trading the Atlas Line on the Euro (6E) today. Plenty of opportunities for profit:

Trade 1Short – win for 5-6 ticks
Trade 2Short – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 3Long – loss for 6-7 ticks
Trade 4Short – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 5Long – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 6Long – win for 4-5 ticks

Using the ATR, we knew when to get out. In total, this could have been a day of 32 ticks for Atlas Line traders. How well did you do today trading the Euro Currency?

Euro (6E) and Russel (TF) Atlas Line Results

We’ve been so busy at Day Trade To Win the last couple of weeks with webinar presentations, assisting new customers and our recent launch of the Power Price Action course that we’ve neglected to post some recent charts. Here are a few charts showing how the Atlas Line has been chugging away on two of our favorite markets, the Euro (6E) and Russel (TF), producing daily profits Atlas Line customers have come to expect.

Euro (6E) March 30, 2011
"
In this first chart, you can see how effective the ATR is in deciding when to exit a trade. Using the Average True Range with the Atlas Line is covered in the live training that’s included with purchase.

Russel (6E) March 30, 2011
"
This could have been a very frustrating day for traders who were not using the Atlas Line. Since we knew that price would climb (relating the position of price to the Atlas Line’s line), making a profit was very easy.

How to Enable 24 Hour Data (NinjaTrader) / Atlas Line Crude Oil Performance

The video below is a two-part video. The first part shows how the Crude Oil market was on fire today and how well the Atlas Line performed. The second part of the video shows you how to set up 24 hour data; a question that’s been repeatedly asked of John.

In part 1 – Atlas Line Says Go Long – Crude Oil (CL) Takes Off, John entered at $100.08 and the Atlas Line never bothered producing another signal. That’s because price was steadily climbing the rest of the morning. John Paul rewinds his chart to show how well the Atlas Line performed in the CL market yesterday. Yesterday’s CL trades were again spot on – a long trade followed by a short when price intersected the Atlas Line. It’s very difficult to find a trading method or software that can work across all markets. The Atlas Line is the exception to the rule.

In part 2 – How to Enabled 24 Hour Data (NinjaTrader), John shows traders how to go from pit session data to full 24 hour data. If you’re using the Atlas Line, you’ll need to enable 24 hour data. This 24 hour data tutorial is specific to NinjaTrader, but other software supported by the Atlas Line like eSignal and TradeStation of course offer full-day compatibility. NinjaTrader allows you to save a template so the 24 hour access is instantly applied.

2.5 Points on the E-Mini S&P Today (Video)

Using the Atlas Line™ in the E-Mini S&P, we knew to take a long trade at 1266.50 based on price trading above the line and the Dbl Bar Long signal. Based on the ATR, 2 to 2.5 points were possible. The first fill was at 1266.75. Watch the video to see what happens next (despite the morning news event).

Using the Atlas Line and ATR, you know three things:

  • Price direction
  • Where to place the entry
  • Where to place your stop
  • What your profit target should be (according to the ATR)

This is all taught in the live webinar taught by John Paul which is included with the trading software.

Yes, the Atlas Line is really this consistent.
