How to Use the ATR on Markets Other than the E-mini
August 20, 2014
Want to know how to effectively apply the ATR (Average True Range) to markets such as the Russell (TF), Dow Futures (YM), 30 Year U.S. Treasury Bonds (ZB), and 10 Year U.S. Treasury Notes (ZN)? John Paul will break it down for you in this video. For those who don't know, the ATR is a measurement of the last X number of bars (we like to use 4) that provides us an idea of volatility, so we can better place our profit targets, stops, and see if the market is even worth trading.
Can Trading Futures Really Be This Easy?
August 18, 2014
John Paul was conducting a live training class when he noticed an opportunity to take a short trade. This trade occurred on August 13, 2014 at approximately 11:50 a.m. US/Eastern. A pivot stop was used, which positioned the stop loss at 1945.75, two ticks above the pivot point. The profit target was set for one point. If price had tagged the profit target without a fill, John Paul would have moved in the stop loss to lock in a break even trade (excluding broker fees).
Live Webinar - Let's Trade Futures
August 15, 2014
Watch this recording of yesterday's live webinar event where John Paul discussed the benefits of price action trading, how the Atlas Line was plotting in real time across multiple markets, what causes the Atlas Line's signals to trigger, how the Atlas Line can provide an overall direction of where the market is expected to trend, predictions for upcoming breakouts, why the BarTimer is important, how to apply the ABC to recent trading days, and how to trade the news.
2 to 3 Tick Profit Targets Made Easy
August 12, 2014
This video shows about four different E-mini trades recognized by the Trade Scalper method and software. A 1-min chart is always used and profit targets are either two or three ticks depending on the ATR. The stop loss is never more than six ticks. The goal of the Trade Scalper method is to minimize risk and make profit with small, multiple, successful trades. You can trade this strategy without the software because it's fully taught in the digital course and included live training.
Are We Approaching Another E-mini Breakout?
August 11, 2014
Take a look at a weekly chart and you'll see a large red candle for the first week of August, 2014. Many traders went short after seeing this candle with the expectation that this was the long-awaited bearish move. Instead, wait to see if a breakout occurs if price again approaches the 1780 level. We've seen a number of patterns recently where a bearish fake out will occur followed by a steady climb for the next few weeks. Remember to consider the overall direction of the market.
Scalping the E-mini S&P with the Trade Scalper
August 5, 2014
Take a look at the two previous Trade Scalper trades and this live trade worth three ticks. Rather small, but that's the point of scalp trading - multiple, quick trades instead of waiting for big moves. The Trade Scalper indicator comes with the Trade Scalper course. You fully learn how to identify Trade Scalper entries by eye and learn how to use the automated entry signals provided by the Trade Scalper software. The profit target and stop loss rules are also fully explained.
Expect False Breakouts to Occur
August 1, 2014
If you open up a weekly chart and take a look at the last two years, you'll see a bullish trend. Look closer and you'll notice many false breakouts. False breakouts occur when a series of trending candles are interrupted by a candle that reverses direction. These false breakout moments lure traders into compromising trades by making them think, "This is the moment when the market will reverse long-term!" Far too often, this is more or less a "trick" and price continues to trend.
Big 3.25 Point E-mini Trade with Atlas Line
July 31, 2014
When you're using the Atlas Line at the open of the E-mini market, your Atlas Line will behave as seen here. Typically, a Long or Short signal will plot at around 10:00 a.m. US/Eastern, telling you when to get in. Then it's up to you to apply the profit target and stop loss. Notice how John Paul makes use of NinjaTrader's ATM Strategy feature to place the profit target and stop loss in advance. The profit target is based on the ATR (Average True Range), which is 3.25 in this case.
Long and Short Atlas Line Trades
July 17, 2014
John Paul takes a live trade using the Atlas Line signals and ends up with a profit shortly thereafter. The two consecutive closing bars generated the Atlas Line's buy (Long) signal at 1973.75. He used a limit order to get in at a price near the close of the second bar. With the Atlas Line, you should not chase after price, as this can result in a smaller profit target or stop loss getting hit. The ATR (Average True Range) is used to dictate the profit 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.
