Trading the News
Do you avoid the chaos surrounding news events or do you attempt to take advantage of the big moves? This exact, accurate strategy will keep you out of the chop. You'll recognize this pattern again and again.
Using the ATR (Average True Range)
We always say "trade based on what the market can produce." Our preferred tool to gauge tradabiltiy is the ATR. Found in most software platforms, the ATR will help you trade with responsible profits and stops.

Recent E-mini Price Action Trade 2 of 2
June 13, 2014
This video shows the Atlas Line producing a Long signal at 1926.25. The green ATR value seen at the bottom of the chart provides an idea of what the market can realistically produce in terms of profit. By rounding this value, we have a figure to use as a profit target. If the trade goes against us, we have a number of stop loss strategies in mind. We'll take whatever comes first – profit target or the first stop, to minimize risk. Trade management rules are covered in the live training.
Recent E-mini Price Action Trade 1 of 2
June 13, 2014
Trading the E-mini is made easy with the Atlas Line. The produced Dbl Bar Short signal at 1923.75 helped us take advantage of a breakout right in time. It's better to watch for slight pullbacks instead of trying to make a move after a breakout has occurred. Price loves to test previous lows and highs, so keep this in mind when looking at price action. Two closing bars either above or below the plotted Atlas Line produce the entry signal, either Long or Short.
Atlas Line Trade Good for +3 Points
May 5, 2014
This Atlas Line trade was good for +3 points, or +$1,650.00, excluding trading fees. The Atlas Line gave a long signal after the two closing bars above its dashed pink line. John Paul's limit order was quickly filled. He uses the ATR's current value of about three points to determine the profit target. The catastrophic stop loss is used by default. It acts as a safety net in case the market suddenly takes off in an undesired direction.
Market Review and Futures Forecast – NinjaTrader Webinar
May 2, 2014
John Paul conducted an hour-long presentation for NinjaTrader yesterday. In this video, he explains the best time of the day to trade, why manipulation occurs, why trading strategies need to work in trending and non-trending days, why you should be using the ATR, how news events can shape the trading day, how to plan for whipsaw trading days, and much more.
Two Trade Scalper Live Trades
May 11, 2014
Take a look at these two scalp trades in the E-mini S&P using a 1-Min chart. John Paul's limit order at 1879 was filled with a profit target of three ticks. The stop loss was set to six ticks, but this large default stop is usually not hit, as the time-based stop is more frequent. For this scalping strategy to be viable, the ATR has to be greater than three ticks. From three to two ticks, the profit target becomes two ticks.
Two Atlas Line Live Trades
March 11, 2014
In this video, two live Atlas Line trades were taken. The first signal of the day occurred at about 10:15 a.m., which is later than usual. John Paul had to wait for price to drop before getting filled on the limit order. Watch the DOM window to see the result of this trade. Closer to noon, the Atlas Line produced another signal; a short trade with a profit target of three ticks. This profit target was intentionally conservative.
Atlas Line Live Trade
February 28, 2014
The Long signal produced by the Atlas Line 1t 1857.75 was good for seven ticks on the E-mini. Traders are often concerned with the size of the stop loss John Paul uses, however, the catastrophic stop is really just a safety net if price were to suddenly take off. It is much more common for the time-based, prove-it, or other stops to get hit first. And you end up taking whatever stop gets hit first anyway, if your profit target is not reached.
Price Action Decoded Webinar with John Paul
February 27, 2014
Take a look at John Paul's unique approach to price action trading. He uses the ATR combined with the BarTimer to determine his placement in the markets. If the ATR value is too low, it's not worth the risk, as the market may stall out or flip-flop. At about 11:00 into the video, you can see how the markets "wake up" for the day session, which is our preference to trade. At 11:20, he discusses trading news events, followed by an Atlas Line review at 13:00 in.
Live Price Action Webinar from Feb. 7, 2014
February 7, 2014
With an extremely large move in the ES at 8:35 a.m. on February 7, 2014, John Paul answered many questions on how the Atlas Line works. This almost 30 point move was caused by a jobs-related news event. This move impacted the plotting of the Atlas Line, and normally, you would have not stayed out of the market. The Long signal still appeared to be a winner, but the trade would have not been taken due to the distance of the plotted Atlas Line vs. the real-time price.
2014 January Effect Prediction
January 31, 2014
With January 2013 now behind us, John Paul takes a look at the month of January as a whole in order to determine whether we can expect the year to end higher or lower. By confirming the E-mini closed lower on January 31 than it opened on January 2, the January Effect says 2014 will end lower than the January 31 closing price. In an upcoming video, John Paul will explain how to take advantage of support and resistance trades, considering a different approach is required.
You Should Know About 5-min Charts and Front-running
January 31, 2014
Watch this video to see why it makes sense to trade with a 5-min chart. John Paul explains this time frame allows you to see all the moves recognized by traders of 10, 15, and 60 min charts, while not showing too much information. Trading with a 5-min time frame allows you make an immediate decision for news events, breakouts, and many other strategy decisions. Also, John Paul discusses front-running; the process of placing entries one tick in front of the normal level.
ABC Software for NinjaTrader Gives Entry Signals
January 13, 2014
The ABC Method is one of the free trading methods available here on the videos page. Instead of plotting this price action method manually, we have a coded version that automatically draws the vertical lines and provides entry signals. The entry signals occur after two consecutive closing candles outside the previous section's range. Typically, the B section is a leading indicator for how the final C section will perform. January 13, 2014 was a trending day.
Recent Live Atlas Line Webinar Recording
January 10, 2014
John Paul shows consecutive days of Atlas Line performance along with markets such as the YM, ES, 6E, and ZB. For those of you who are new to the Atlas Line, it is the pink dashed line you see on the chart that produces the Long and short signals. When the price candles intersect the line and close twice above the line, a Long signal is generated. Likewise, two closing candles below the line produce a Short signal. The internal algorithm lets price prove how it wants to move.
Trading Lesson 1 – Price Action vs. Indicators
January 8, 2014
What is the difference between using price action and indicators to trade? John Paul explains in this first video in a series of Trading Lesson installments. Indicators are software programs that run inside of your day trading software, providing you with information to help you trade. Price action can also tell you how to trade using only the basic information that's already on your chart - price and time. Price action has an advantage over indicators as described in the this video.
Webinar Video: Simple Strategies for Beginners
October 18, 2013
This live webinar recording discusses the importance of entering a trade prior to the big moves. In many cases, big buyers heavily push a market to the point of exhaustion. Then you enter, and price is choppy. If you're entering an Atlas Line trade that is more than double the current ATR value, then the market is likely exhausted – don't take the trade. Similarly, if the market was not exhaused and the trade was valid, the ATR would be used for placing the profit target and stop loss.
Get Ready to Buy the E-mini S&P
October 11, 2013
In this video, John Paul tells us why another opportunity to go long is right around the corner. By looking for the last recent high in the market that was followed by a retracement, we know to go long when that high is reached again. Overall, we can reasonably confirm that 2013 will be an "up" year because of the January Effect. John Paul expects price to climb to new heights in the coming weeks, most likely as a result of news regarding the government shutdown or the debt ceiling.
Saturday, Aug. 24 Live Power Price Action Webinar Event
August 24, 2013
Here's the full hour video from the Power Price Action webinar sponsored by NinjaTrader. In the beginning, John Paul covers why it's best to use a 5-min chart and predictions for how price will behave for the rest of 2013 using the January Effect. At around 21 minutes in, he switches back to a 5-min chart and discusses how the markets are manipulated. At 29 minutes, he talks about Yo-Yo bars. There's much more covered – be sure to watch the whole thing!
Live Power Price Action Trading Before Webinar
August 16, 2013
John Paul shows a live Power Price Action trade in this video. Power Price Action is a four DVD course that is physically mailed to your door. It comes with a workbook and live training as well. You learn a handful of powerful price action strategies; the most important is the Blueprint Trade. Seen here, the trade is good for 1.5 points, or $900 because of the 12 contracts he's trading. On the ES, each tick is worth $12.50.
Atlas Line Pullback Trade Taken
August 15, 2013
Here's a follow-up video for August 15, 2013 in which a short Pullback trade was recognized by the Atlas Line. The "P" symbol plotted above the candles are part of the Atlas Line. These S (Strength) and P (Pullback) trades are additional opportunities. The Atlas Line's main direction indicated that we should be looking for short trades. You can see how price almost hit the stop loss, but instead pushed through the profit target for a nice winner.
Is the Market Overbought or Oversold?
August 15, 2013
Weve all been there – you see a big move on your chart, wishing you had placed a trade prior to the big move. Now, you're wondering if the market has enough strength to keep moving in a steady direction or if it's going to stall out and chop back and forth for the next half hour. In this video, John Paul compares the price the Atlas Line is currently at with the market's current ATR value, allowing him to see if it's worth placing a trade.
Over the last few years, we've produced 200+ videos showing our trading methods.
