When you have two separate strategies telling you to go either long or short, you feel more confident in taking the trade. In this video, John Paul shows how a technique called the Blueprint Trade (taught in the Power Price Action DVD course) coincides with a Long signal produced by the Atlas Line software. Since price is trading above the plotted Atlas Line, we have an indication to look for long trades. The actual entry for this trade is identified by the Blueprint technique. John Paul places the long trade at 1639.25. You can always see where the entries are because they have a tan color in the SuperDOM window. The profit target is 1.25 points based on the ATR (Average True Range) using a period setting of four. The video is fast forwarded with the audio commentary dubbed over. You’ll see the profit target hit in a short while. The Atlas Line can be used for the Trade Scalper method as well. It’s really a matter of preference – if you like to trade a lot and don’t mind the broker fees, scalping is a great way to trade. Power Price Action has fewer opportunities but focuses on bigger moves than scalping.
In the Mentorship Program, you’ll learn all of the Power Price Action Methods, get a copy of the Atlas Line lifetime license, and learn about 8 or so other price action strategies. The next class begins June 20, 2013. Space is still available. Call us or use the contact page to find out more.
At about 5:30 into the video, you can see John Paul enter a live trade in front of the attendees. The Atlas Line said to go long at 10:00 a.m. Using his live account, he bought the market at 1630.50. The ATR was at 3.48, so John Paul’s profit target was three points (by rounding down). His stop loss was five points (also based on real-time market conditions). You can see how he drags the profit target and stop loss around on the NinjaTrader DOM window. You can also do this on the chart using the Chart Trader feature. The green profit target and stop loss lines get automatically placed on the chart because of the ATM Strategy John Paul has in place. The ATM strategy did not fit the real-time market conditions, so he had to re-position them. By 11:00 into the video, the trade is over with John Paul making 3 points of profit. Even if you were trading one contract, that’s a profit of $150 without broker fees. John Paul was trading 10 contracts, so the trade was worth $1500.
Here are some of the answered questions and statements asked by attendees:
Mike: Would you have a short sitting below that price for a break out to take you in the market?
TA: are your decisions only n 5 min charts?
Mike: Your profit target is the previous highs. Would you adjust the targets or leave them no matter what?
Frank: can you please explain the entry process?
Mike: If there was news at 10:00 would you wait until after the news?
Tom: are your posted results taken from the room?
tony: new to this ..so what is your profit so far
Dean: Do you recommend starting out on the 5 minute chart?
Will: you get another Atlas line today, or will you use this one all day?
NJ: How far away from ATR would you enter as your prove-it-stop may be too big?
Dean: How does the Atlas line handle ranging markets?
Dean: Very stringent rules based trading. I like. Instills discipline win or lose.
Some of the attendees were John Paul’s Mentorship students. Here’s what they had to say:
Najam: i took the trae 4 contracts
Guess: i took it with 5 contracts
Chris 2: Been using your ATO successfully for last 2+ years. Thanks

dick: To all who are contemplating signing up for J Pauls mentorship I would encourage you to enroll. I’m 75 yrs young and this is the best systems I had experienced.
NinjaTrader sponsored John Paul’s price action webinar yesterday. John Paul begins the hour-long webinar by talking about one of our old courses, the ATO (At the Open). Now only available in the Mentorship Program, the ATO teaches you how to trade the opening move in the E-mini S&P. This exact price pattern occurs on a regular basis. By applying objective rules, you can learn to take advantage of this pattern every day.
Next, John Paul says why he doesn’t like to use traditional indicators – fibs, moving averages, MACDs, etc. These indicators usually require optimization because the market is always evolving. If you don’t optimize, you are stuck with old settings for a market that no longer behaves the way the indicator anticipates. The Atlas Line is indeed software for NinjaTrader, TradeStation and eSignal. Unlike other indicators, the Atlas Line only needs to be configured for the user’s local time zone. No ongoing updates are provided, nor does the user experience lag associated with traditional indicators.
At about 8:00, John Paul gives us an update on the January Effect on how it has played out so far. The January Effect says 2013 is expected to close higher (in December, 2013) than the price the price it closed at in the end of January, 2013. Since an overall trend is determined, John Paul is able to recognize a breakout strategy you can use for holding positions longer than a day or two. We get many questions from traders who hold positions overnight or swing trade – this is what you’re looking for. The strategy is described starting at about 10:00.
At 23:00, you can get an understanding of what the ATR (Average True Range) is. Even with long term positions, traders can use it to determine profit targets and stop losses.
At 37:00, John Paul transitions into the Atlas Line, explaining its trades and the Strength and Pullback signals.
At 43:00, John Paul explains the difference between the two scalping methods offered – The Trade Scalper and Price Action Scalping. Price Action Scalping is only offered in the Mentorship Program (begins May 1, 2013). He also covers chart setup with the NinjaTrader Dynamic SuperDOM. Remember that he can’t describe the full method it its entirety – just the basics are mentioned.
At 55:00, John Paul explains the market news page. We’ve posted about it before. Use the calendar to see upcoming financial news for the week. The closest news event is highlighted. On the top of the page, real-time market news is shown. Just refresh the page every week.
Watch this video to learn a great forecasting technique. It will help you determine whether the day will be trending (heading in one direction for the most part) or whipsaw (full of choppy, difficult to trade, back and forth activity).
The E-mini S&P 500 (ES) experienced a trending day on February 27, 2013. At 1:17 in the video, you can see how price slowly climbed throughout the day. If you can know in advance whether the day will trend or not, your trading can greatly improve. The technique in this video works for many market opens, but the 9:30 a.m. US/Eastern market open is used. John Paul demonstrates how to split the trading day into three separate sections (A, B and C) at distinct times. Each section has its own characteristics as discussed at 3:40. The method – what to do with the A, B and C sections, is explained at around 5:20. In short, section A can tell you with reasonable certainty whether or not the day will trend. Using the ATR, you can position your profit target and stop loss. You will need to wait for price to prove where it wants to go – either two consecutive closes above or below the previous range. At 9:28 in the video, see what the Atlas Line produced for orders. Visit our videos page to see more videos or the Atlas Line page to see software that works for trading trends.
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.
SP 500 Emini day trading today March 11 2011 with long and short orders gave plenty of
opportunity to grab a few points based on the current market conditions.
John Paul has created the following video showing how to trade the Eminisp 500
Here’s a quick video of today’s price action on the E-Mini S&P. Using the Atlas Line, our long trade was good for 3 points (1324 to 1327), as recommended by the “Dbl Bar Long” signal. We decided how many points to go for based on the ATR (which indicated about 2.5).
Once price crossed the Atlas Line, a short signal was generated at 1321.75. We confidentally stayed short because price wasn’t approaching the Atlas Line. Also, no further order signals were generated.
Atlas Line customers are taught how to use the ATR and the Atlas Line together, so you know your targets and when to get out.
Traders – a quick an easy profit today right at market open. Before the drop in price, the Atlas Line generated a short signal, in addition to the line being drawn above price (indicating to take short trades).
Again, another winning day for day traders who use the Atlas Line™. A long order signal was generated by the Atlas Line just before 10:00 a.m. (at around 1313). Right after, price climbed all the way up to 1318. This was an easy 2-5 point Atlas Line day, even for the most cautious traders.
Ron K. gives a short, mid-program critique of the Day Trade to Win Mentorship Program. So far, he says the program is everything it’s advertised to be. The difference between his day trading abilities before and after the start of the course are like “night and day.” So far, Ron’s instruction has focused on understanding how the E-Mini market moves, how to enter the market, capture profits and knowing when to exit using a variety of methods for every scenario.
Be sure to stick around for the end of the video, as Ron provides his profit and loss figures – something very few traders actually mention.
