Here’s a live trading video on the ES (E-Mini) for May 21, 2012. John Paul enters the market long at 1310.75 according to the Atlas Line software’s advice – a Strength signal. His profit target is 1 point (4 ticks), as determined by the ATR (Average True Range). In the included live training, you are taught how to manually calculate the Strength and Pullback trades. The automatic signals in this new Atlas Line version make identification even easier. Training also covers software configuration, working out stop losses, and everything else you can think of.
John Paul’s demanding teaching schedule prevented him for taking all of the excellent Atlas Line trades. The original Dbl Bar Long signal at 1299 was good for three points. Six other Strength and Pullback opportunities occurred, resulting in a profitable day for Atlas Line users.
Ever miss a trade due to contemplation or a busy schedule? John was conducting a webinar at Tradersworld and missed a Short opportunity on the ES as indicated by the Atlas Line software. While he waits for another trade to set up, he reviews ES activity for the two prior days. Again, many excellent setups were identified, as the Atlas Line is used by traders the world over for confirming entries on a daily basis. At about 4:30 into the video, John enters a live Pullback trade going Short with a profit target of 1.25 points. Profit is reached. The video concludes with a live Strength trade earning another point of profit. Again, if you had taken the original Short when advised and the additional Strength and Pullbacks, you would have had a nice profit. The automated Atlas Line software is entirely based on price action. Being a consistent day trader is easy when using reliable tools.
Tradersworld and NinjaTrader teamed up to provide a week full of educational webinars, from May 14 to 18. Over 45 of the best presenters in the industry were invited to speak. Topics ranged from trading tools, software, strategies and market direction as a whole.
Today, John Paul gave his presentation showing the strength of price action trading. Demonstrated using charts within the last few days, don’t miss the techniques! Learn the ABC Pattern, Trading the News method and how to tackle markets on a daily basis from a price action perspective. We always enjoy showing traders the difference between trading based on what you see in real-time vs. blindly following a laggy indicator system.
Today’s webinar was filled to capacity. This video is for all of you who were unable to get in and those who want to see how our systems performed.
John starts the live presentation by showing two charts: the E-Mini and Euro. The Atlas Line produced a Long signal on each market. The Long signal is an advisement to buy the market at the given price. Most traders would have been hesitant, thinking price was overbought (based on the rise in price within the previous 25 minutes).
At about four minutes in, John reviews a recent overnight E-Mini chart for May 11. Yes, the Atlas Line can work premarket very well, as demonstrated by the Short signal given at 1351.
Attendees were filled with great questions. Yes, the Atlas Line does work with free data feeds. If you’re using CQG, Rithmic, PFG, etc. you can paper trade with the Atlas Line until you feel comfortable to use a live account. If requested, our support team helps customers with installation of the Atlas Line via remote support.
At the 10:00 mark, John runs through a typical play-by-play scenario showing how he uses the signals, the ATR (Average True Range) to dictate a profit target. The most preferable scenarios are when price intersects the Atlas Line and you immediately get either a Long or a Short. The live trade that occurred near the start of the webinar showed a different situation, where price climbed from far below to the Atlas Line to tag the 1.7 point profit target.
Here is last Friday’s live webinar event in which John Paul discussed price action trading and demonstrated the Atlas Line. Early in the video, John shows the trade you could have taken based on the news event. Fast forward to the 15 minute mark, and you’ll see the Atlas Line call out a perfect Short trade live on the 6E. The same great short trades were prevalent on the ES and CL instruments. For the rest of the video, John explains the Atlas Line parameters, takes questions from attendees, and changes chart time frames. It’s worth noting the difference between using tick charts and minute charts. At about 50 minutes in, John showed how minute charts work better with the Atlas Line algorithm. Live training is included with purchase – ask John questions and receive answers. You’ll be set and ready to trade in no time.
Consistency – we talk about its importance every chance we get. Since its creation, the ATO has been a reliable technique for capturing ES points at the first move of the day. We’re so active teaching new students, conducting webinar events and showcasing products like the Atlas Line, sometimes its good to show the effectiveness of our individual courses. This video shows the last three consecutive days where reasonable returns were possible. The ATO method itself is not black box – you’re taught how to recognize the setup step-by-step, and just as importantly, how to manage the trade with targets and stops. It’s easy, and you’ll probably learn the method within a couple hours. To go one step further, John Paul conducts a live webinar with purchase so you’ll get first-hand training. The signals you see on the chart show the ATO software that’s included (but not really necessary once you are able to recognize the setup).
Here’s a trading video showing today’s Atlas Line short trade. Prepare to be held in suspense – the outcome is shown at the end of the video. In between, John describes three consecutive days trading the E-Mini S&P using the Atlas Line software. You’ll also hear John identify Strength and Pullback trades. These unique setups are taught in the included live training along with stop strategies. Remember, the Atlas Line will plot on your charts just as you see it here, so there’s no second guessing your entry price. If you make it through to the video’s end, you’ll see a candle tag the profit target, eventually hitting for +1.75 points.
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill, the STOCK (Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge) Act, to curb Congressional insider trading. Vote results indicate 417 Congress members in favor of the bill and two in opposition. This House version differs from that of the Senate, which includes provisions for financial data collectors to disclose their activities like lobbyists. Regarding the differences between both bills, critics claim the House version has “caved in to investment firms” with its exclusion of said provisions.
A political intelligence industry exists to monitor and sell data based on the financial activity of government officials. House Representatives have expressed concern that this “watered-down” version of the bill does not regulate the communication or financial exchanges between these industry members and government officials. Wall Street lobbyists have been accused of leading the “watering.” Nevertheless, both House Democrats and Republicans overwhelmingly support the bill, including the President’s stated endorsement.
The creation of the STOCK Act may have been the result of the CBS “60 Minutes” investigation that implicated that lawmakers enriched themselves based on information obtained through their official duties. Even without the bill being passed, members of Congress are by no means above the law when it comes to insider trading. Members of Congress face the same penalties as regular investors who attempt insider trading. For the last seven years, there have been no recent insider trading charges brought to Congressional delegates.
What do you think?
• Are you in favor of the legislation banning insider trading?
• If so, what should the penalty be for insider trading?
• If not, do you think government officials’ investments should be kept entirely private?
• If the investments of Congress members become free public information, how can an industry that sells this data exist? Does this imply a relationship of “shadiness” between these data miners and government officials?
John Paul once again proves that successful day trading can be easy. The video starts with showing you how to take advantage of the large bullish news event candle at around 8:30 a.m. US/Eastern. A common mistake is made when trying to interpret the news as either positive or negative, then entering based on your judgement. John shows a specific technique where the market can be used to provide direction AFTER the big move, when price movement becomes easier to predict. To keep track of news events, visit the Bloomberg Economic Calendar and note the red star announcements.
Another technique John discuss is the Yo-Yo effect. Based on buyer / seller exchange principles, this effect occurs when price bounces back and forth in a choppy succession. If you’re looking to enter a trade, this forecasting method will help you avoid problematic conditions. Start watching from around the 26 minute mark if you’re interested.
The final topic John touches on is market predictions for 2012. By the end of the year, John expects indices to climb to levels higher than those reached in January 2012. The pattern used for this prediction can be back-tested many years with a high degree of accuracy, as it’s used by professional market analysts.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had an automated solution to tell you when to go long or short and at what price? That’s exactly what the Atlas Line can tell you. In this video, the first Atlas Line signal of the day on the ES (E-Mini) appeared around 10:00 a.m. when price was at 1287.5. John then placed his entry to go long exactly at the provided price. Profit targets are always based on what the markets can produce (volatility) as determined by the ATR (Average True Range). Using this information, we know to go for a profit target of 1.5 points (6 ticks) based on current market conditions. You’ll also notice that the stop is placed automatically using NinjaTrader’s ATM strategy. Stops and targets can be adjusted on the fly by dragging and dropping the Chart Trader markers on the chart. If necessary, John will switch his stop to a Time-based, but usually relies on the Prove-It if market conditions are not going in his favor. Each stop type as well as profit targets are taught in the live training session that’s included with purchase.
Really, trading can’t be any simpler. That’s the goal of the Atlas Line. Consistent results. See our previous post below showing the trading results of the last three months.
