To practice placing trade in simulated, real-time conditions
To back-testing a strategy to see its effectiveness when trading live
To bypass the need for a live data feed (although live trading with a free demo account is always recommended)
Few other day trading platforms offer such a feature
When your schedule doesn’t allow for real-time paper trading, this is the next best thing.
Don’t wait until tomorrow to practice under live trading conditions!
With NinjaTrader 7, it’s possible to replay market activity for nearly any given day. After downloading a given day’s replay data, NinjaTrader uses the data (either minute or tick) to plot price at the exact values at the exact time as recorded. More specifically, you can see price plot on your charts and DOMs as though the day (or night) is unfolding in real-time. Orders can be place and success can be tracked using the Replay101 account (similar to Sim101 account). Replay101 is NinjaTrader’s designated Market Replay account. Unlike previous versions of NinjaTrader that require the user to record the data locally for replay, NinjaTrader 7 lets users download history for free on a per request basis.
Here’s how to use Market Replay:
1. If you are currently connected to a data feed, disconnect from it.
2. Download the latest Replay Data through NinjaTrader’s Control Center:
File > Utilities > Download Replay Data
Choose the market you want data for
Choose the date you want data for
Check both L1 and L2 boxes
3. In the bottom right corner of the Control Center, you will see that the Replay Data is downloading. This will take a few minutes. Before continuing to the next step, please wait until the downloading status disappears.
4. Go to File > Connect > Click Market Replay Connection. Open a chart and a DOM if you don’t have them available. Make sure that the replay connection is selected in the chart and DOM. You should also see the Replay player. With this tool, you can pause market activity, fast forward and play. Drag the slider to advance to a specified time frame.
5. Trade like you’re using a real account.
Keep in mind, the data on the DOM won’t contain every increment / decrement in the Buy and Sell columns as experienced during the day’s live trading. The packaged history is optimized in terms of file size and useability.
If you run into problems missing historical data in Market Replay mode, you may both download and view the historical data that you have saved on your local computer by going to the NinjaTrader Control Center > Tools > Historical Data Manager > Edit tab. As long as you have data for the days you are requesting in the Edit tab, then you will see that data when you are using the Market Replay.
We stand by our products. If we see a setup occurring (and know there’s a good chance to make money), we take the trade! This occurs during live training sessions, as seen in today’s webinar for first-time Atlas Line customers.
This trade occurred as a result of the Atlas Line Dbl Bar Short signal 1213.75, reaching our profit target at 1211.75. In case you don’t know what this means, the Atlas Line tells you to go either Short or Long at a specific price. Advanced warning lets you place your order in time to make profit. The types of stops and where to place profit targets are covered in the included live training.
You might not be aware that when you purchase a Day Trade to Win trading course, a free live lesson is included. Day trading coach John Paul teaches each session personally, to make sure you fully understand how to use the software and/or understand the course, whether you’re trading the E-mini, currencies or other markets.
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.
We heard from one of our Atlas Line users today about how much the Atlas Line has been “on fire” the last few months, producing profitable trades nearly every day. This emini trading chart shows how 1.5 points were possible today. The Atlas Line saw how price was going to climb and produced a Double Bar Long signal. Using the ATR, we knew to get out of the trade, allowing for the 1.5 points. Using the ATR is covered in the online day trading course / how-to-webinar that comes with purchase of the Atlas Line. Traders who were not using the Atlas Line probably went short soon after market open, resulting in loss. The Atlas Line makes futures trading very easy.
You may have noticed some new pages, products and minor tweaks here and there while navigating Day Trade To Win:
Results Page – see how well the Atlas Line and Power Price Action method have been been performing on the E-Mini, Euro and other markets. We will update this page every couple of days, so be sure to check back. All of the trades are real and verifiable. The Atlas Line page has some Power Price Action Trades, but it should be accurate in containing only Atlas Line trades for the month of April, anyway.
Courses Page – entirely revamped, you can now see all of our products on one clean page. Click the boxes at the top and you’ll be brought to the course. All of the product details are listed. If you need help in deciding, you can always contact us by phone or email.
Private Mentorship Page – streamlined and restructured. Be sure to check out our new video testimonials and what’s included in the eight weeks of live training.
New Power Price Action DVD Course
This has probably been keeping us busy the most – a complete 4 DVD package with eight weeks of live training and a color training workbook that shows you a highly profitable setup that’s compatible with Futures, Forex and Currencies. It’s called Power Price Action and it’s suitable for traders of all levels. Very few traders know about this setup. There are a bunch of other highly profitable techniques taught in the course as well.

As part of Day Trade to Win’s partnership with NinjaTrader, John Paul conducted a live presentation today showcasing the benefits of trading using price action. He showed traders why indicators are faulty and how to deal with news events. John answered many participant questions, covering many of the misconceptions traders have. At the end of the video John Paul provided a coupon code for 10OFFDTTW good till the end of the month for 10% off !
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.
NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.3 is a Beta release and is compatible with the upcoming Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1. Please thoroughly read the information on this page prior to installing.
Why is Version 188.8.131.52 Beta?
The NinjaTrader 3rd party partner base is over 220 strong and growing every day. This thriving ecosystem of innovative applications allows you to extend the NinjaTrader application to fit your needs ensuring you get the most out of your NinjaTrader investment. Our partner program would not have been possible without the ability for our partners to protect their IP (Intellectual Property) from reverse engineering attempts. To ensure that our users continue to have access to a broad base of custom indicators and strategies we are introducing a change in how IP is protected. We are changing the vendor that provides us with the technology to protect our IP. Although the core NinjaTrader source code itself is not in a beta state, the technology wrapper used to protect our IP is new to NinjaTrader thus we thought it appropriate to label NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.3 as beta.
Are there any implications with upgrading an existing NinjaTrader installation to 7.0.1000.3 Beta?
If you are currently using any commercial 3rd party partner indicators or strategies we advise you contact the partner prior to upgrading to obtain NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.3 compatible versions of their products. There is a high likelihood that any 3rd party product you are using in NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.2 or earlier will not work (incompatible) with NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.3 Beta and any future NinjaTrader version.
Euro Live Trading Example Using the Atlas Line on March 7, 2011
Here’s a perfect example of how the Atlas Line can produce different results while trading on the same day – just look at the Atlas Line post for the E-Mini S&P we created earlier. Today’s Euro (6E) Atlas Line produced a series of Long order signals. These were all spot on. As soon as price crossed the Atlas Line, a Short order was generated (much like the E-Mini S&P chart posted earlier). Even though price was again on the rise, you can see how the ATR and an Atlas Line Pullback (taught in the included training) kept me at a profit of 6-7 ticks. This price action style of trading is consistent with all markets, whether it’s the Australian or Canadian dollar, Forex, FDAX, or whatever your preferred market may be.
Below, take a look at the recording of today’s webinar (February 24, 2011). The benefits to trading on the right side of the market are shown during this presentatio. If you missed the moves caught in the Euro, Emini SP and FDAX, Crude oil and more, then you can watch the entire recording again.
