Nice 4 Points With This E-mini Trading System
April 23, 2009
It's April, but we're trading the June 2009 contract. No indicators are in use. Indicators can give contradictory signals, leading to missed opportunities and limited options. Only the ATO (At the Open) is used. No need to manually place the profit target and stop loss when using the ATM Strategy with NinjaTrader. Price swings away from the profit target. This is why we use a stop loss that is distant enough to avoid being quickly tagged out. As usual, the goal is two points of profit, then another four points.
4 Point Trading System Uses Price Action
April 17, 2009
Do you see any indicators on this chart? No, we trade based on price. Get the free ebook. The first three chapters are available. The name of this method is called At the Open. No need to use crossovers, stochastics, or moving averages. I am using 20 contracts total, but you could potentially do the same with fewer. I set the first 10 contracts for a win of two points. Then two points later, another 10 contracts are set for profit-taking. In total, we're trying to make four points on 20 contracts. That's around $4,000 excluding any fees, slippage, etc.
Managing Slow Holiday E-mini Trading
April 10, 2009
This week has been slow due to the Easter and Passover holidays. Normally, we don't see much movement around holidays. We have a great history of trades as well as a free ecourse providing the first three chapters. John Paul teaches a scalping method. We try to be in the afternoon. Earning a profit of four points is enough for most traders. Keep in mind there are no guarantees and there's always a risk of substantial loss. In the afternoon, the market can slow down. That makes larger moves less possible.
Indicators Lag – Price Action Leads
April 3, 2009
John Paul does not like indicators because they lag and lead to whipsaw trading. Instead, he developed his own trading system that's based entirely on price. It's called the ATO (At the Open). We don't follow software blindly. The market proves to use that it wants to push further in one direction. At 828.25, John Paul places a buy (long) limit order. After placing a trade, you have to wait. It's easy to become nervous and exit the position early at loss or at a smaller profit. Stick to the rules.
E-mini Signals & ATO Course
March 17, 2009
We're waiting for the market to tell us there's a trade; not an indicator. You'll learn the same rules John Paul follows. The included software for NinjaTrader automates finding these trades. After reaching two points, is there enough volatility to push further to the four point target? If not, we can end trading for the day at two points. You can hear the Skype messages coming in from traders who are doing well. We need price to penetrate the target, and it does. If anyone has questions, email our support department.
