Student Shares Real-time Trade Scalper Trade

This video was sent to us by a student who has the Trade Scalper software. He wanted to know if he was doing everything correctly; mainly placing a trade according to the Long signal generated by the Trade Scalper. Below, John Paul reviews the video and provides commentary. Enjoy!

At first glance, you can probably tell the Trade Scalp signal software provides exact long and entry signals. Each signal is accompanied by a directional arrow. The idea is to place an order as soon as possible, as close to the signal price as possible, after the signal appears. Scalping tends to be fast-paced, so you want to be ready to place a trade soon after hearing the alert sound.

John Paul recommends MIT or LIMIT orders. Keep in mind, you may encounter a tick of slippage. The risk, rather the profit target and stop loss, are based on the ATR (Average True Range). This is common among our trading methods. We like to let price “tell us” where it can realistically go at a given moment.

The trade placement occurs at 1:43 in the video. It’s a Long MIT order that is filled almost immediately. The stop and the target are placed automatically due to the ATM Strategy that was previously created and then selected for this trade. If this trade didn’t work out within four or five candles, then it’s good to get out at whatever price that is, which could be a smaller profit, break-even, or a loss. It’s really important to practice with real-time live data for a reasonable period. Then when you’re ready, you can begin trading markets with a funded account.

Recent Charts Reviewed: Atlas Line & Trade Scalper

Here are are few charts from the last few days. Each chart is linked to the corresponding page, so Atlas Line charts will go to the Atlas Line page and the Trade Scalper chart goes to the Trade Scalper page.

The charts should be self-explanatory. But if you’re new to what we offer, the Trade Scalper is a scalping method that focuses on quick, in-and-out trades. Many trades for smaller profit targets. The Atlas Line provides fewer but larger trades. When it comes to scalping, the Atlas Line’s Strength and Pullback signals are almost like scalp trades. These two methods compliment one another and are included with all the other courses and software in our eight-week Mentorship Program.

Enjoy!

1-2-3 Day Trading: $1,500 and Done

This video has three trades worth about $1,500 that came about due to the signals from the Trade Scalper and Atlas Line along with the number of contracts used. You’ll see one Trade Scalper trade and two Atlas Line trades. Remember, you should consider everything hypothetical – do not trade with important money for daily living – and take time to practice.

John Paul recognized how price action was setting up for another Trade Scalper short signal. Sure enough, that’s what happened. The doorbell sound accompanied the short signal. Market conditions at the time told John Paul to use a specific ATM Strategy with a profit target of two points.

In case you’re new to NinjaTrader, an ATM Strategy is a predefined profit target and stop loss. Generally, we configure a few of these for the most common scenarios we encounter while trading. That way, we can easily select the most appropriate one to get in as quickly as possible. Also, these values prevent you from over-trading, in a sense, because you’ve set up the parameters ahead of time. Some traders make the mistake of waiting too long hoping a trade will go in their favor. Because this is a one-minute chart, John Paul wouldn’t hold on to this trade beyond five candles (five minutes).

The first Atlas Line trade begins at 3:24 in the video. The second Atlas Line trade occurs at 5:09. You’ll have to watch to see what happens! But you’ve probably figured out that with the amount of contracts and three winning signals/trades back-to-back.

Scalp Trading – Price Action Made Quick & Easy

John Paul doesn’t waste any time in this video – we jump right into a quick scalp trade. To emphasize some of the important points he makes in the beginning, be sure to practice with a real-time paper trading simulator first, even if you have significant wealth at your disposal. If you don’t have simulator access, visit our simulator page and we’ll reach out to help you. With the simulator, you can place real-time trades and monitor your performance.

This is a 1-Minute Emini S&P 500 chart. He’s entering three candles after the signal. Ideally, it’s best to enter faster than that. He’s filled with five contracts at 3500. The profit target, based on the ATR, is 1.75 points. That’s soon filled – in less than three minutes!

There’s no need to use the traditional set of indicators advised in many videos and books. The Trade Scalper makes it super simple. Follow the signals according to the rules you’re taught. That’s it. If you want to combine it with more strategies, that’s up to you…the Atlas Line works well and we teach how it can work with everything else in our eight-week Mentorship Program.

Speaking of our Mentorship Program, the goal is to grow out of that draining nine to five job once you have seen consistent success trading the markets. The next class begins Nov. 24, 2020. All courses and software are included with Lifetime licenses. You can get started right away with the ATO 2 course. Read more and sign up here.

Today’s Price Activity: $100 Per Trade Conditions

Right away, we can see there was a nice winning Atlas Line trade. The Short signal followed by the drop in price shows that clearly. What happens when we apply the Trade Scalper to the same chart?

Your eyes may be drawn to the Trade Scalper software’s wining short signal that appeared at the same candle as the Atlas Line’s short signal. Remember, we like it when two systems confirm the same thing – anticipated price direction, that is.

It’s not often that John Paul discusses the Atlas Line Bounce signals. These can be enabled within the indicator settings. Go to 1:17 in the video for an explanation. The Atlas Line keeps the same direction throughout the day. There’s a reason why that is, but we won’t get into that here. The point is that the angle and trajectory of the line is important. So when price bounces off the line or passes through it, that’s considered important. Thus, signals may occur soon after either scenario.

At 2:48, you’ll see a Double Wick Short signal from the Trade Scalper. John Paul places a trade. Upon getting filled, you’ll see the profit target and stop loss lines on the chart. That’s because he’s using an ATM Strategy along with the hidden mode of Chart Trader. The profit target is 2.5 points. The Atlas Line’s “advice” is still in effect here because it’s a Short trade below the Atlas Line. Remember, we use the Atlas Line in conjunction with other systems to determine if we should be going long or short at a given time.

Trading Bullish Markets Like a Pro

As you may know from watching our previous January Effect video, we’ve been out the lookout for more bullish winning moves during the remainder of 2020.

As you’ll see, today, Election Day 2020, provided many winning signals…

Click here to find out more about these trading methods

For us and many others, the Atlas Line has been an indispensable tool for finding intraday opportunities that coincide with the January Effect’s bullish (long) opportunities. This video contains multiple examples for the Atlas Line, Trade Scalper, and ATO 2.

To start with, today, Election Day here in in the U.S., we saw an Atlas Line Long (buy) signal early in the day surrounded by many other long Strength and Pullback signals.

At about 1:50, John Paul adds the Trade Scalper. Yet more Long opportunities occur, and many occurred in ideal locations (before the big moves up). We also had a nice Short winner early in the day.

At 2:30, the ATO 2 (At the Open 2) signals are shared. Again, more winning long signals, including a Chaser signal.

Do you take every signal? No. If you have these indicators on your chart, it is best to go with signals that match and adjust the profit target and stop loss accordingly. Avoid overtrading, though it is tempting on days that appear to be trending.

John Paul believes there are more long opportunities remaining throughout the year. Will you be able to identify them properly with your existing strategies? Now is the time to take action – click here to see all of our courses. We have a new Mentorship class that begins Nov. 24. All courses and software are included with Lifetime licenses. It’s the most cost-effective way to get everything.

Recent Buy & Sell Signals From Atlas Line Trading System

Want to see the latest Atlas Line signals? Here’s a review video…

>> Get the Atlas Line Signals <<

For people new to DayTradeToWin, the Atlas Line software plugs into the NinjaTrader charting software as an indicator. After the Atlas Line is applied, its signals appear throughout the day. It provides multiple types of signals: Long and Short with specific entry prices as well as Pullback (P) and Strength (S), that appear as long or short. We like to see a Long signal followed by price going up. Likewise, we like to see a Short signal with price going down soon after.

Know this, can you see how the signals were good for today, Oct. 30? We are using an E-mini S&P 500 chart; the ES 12-20 instrument within NinjaTrader. Look at how price went up after the Long signal. Look at how price dropped after the Short signal. Then we can see how price continued to fall accompanied by winning P and S signals.

Once you see a signal, do you blindly place a trade without considering volatility or other risk? No, of course not. The ATR (Average True Range) is used as a means to assess current market conditions and scale one’s profit target (win goal) and stop loss (risk or loss safety net). What values do you use? This is taught in the customer training video included with purchase. We also include a live training session with purchase.

Later in the video, you’ll see yesterday’s signals. Yesterday was a big “up day,” which the Atlas Line recognized with winning signals.

Losing vs. Winning Thinking Patterns + Upcoming Mentorship

We want to let you in on a, well, how do we say, “BIG SECRET” that impacts most people.

There’s been a lot of talk in recent years, especially from scientific circles, that consciousness shapes reality. In fact, there is much ancient knowledge people are now rediscovering in this regard.

As such, there are many self-help and new-age books out there promising the moon – sometimes literally!

At DayTradeToWin.com, we’ve stayed away from such things, instead focusing on our trading systems, signals, etc.

But we couldn’t help but notice over the years that one’s mindset is SUPER important to day trading. Successful people in all varieties of occupations tend to embrace a positive mindset, or positive thinking.

Interesting how that works, huh?

You may be saying, “But that’s easier said than done! I’ve got all these problems…” That’s understandable. However, we hope to make it easier…

In the following graphic, you’ll see common negative/problem/losing thought patterns with healthy solutions for each.

So, the next time you’re thinking negatively, why not try to embrace the more positive perspective offered? What’s there to lose?

and put it on your desk, fridge, or wherever you need it the most)

We know that the goal of day trading is consistent success in the markets. It’s not like a regular job! For example, after you get paid in a regular job, your boss won’t randomly ask you to return a portion of your salary. As we all know, that can be sort of the case when day trading.

…Of course, trading is a different “thing” compared to a regular job. Thus, trading must be respected in an entirely different way…

That’s why, we as traders, must be especially mindful of our daily activities. We have to cultivate a healthy “winning” mindset and stick to it, just as much as we stick to the rules of our various trading strategies.

Got it?

No one is perfect. Most of us are trying to get better at what we do and who we are. We hope the above will help you in your journey.

That’s all for now – have an excellent day!

😊

P.S. Wow, this was a long post. Before we forget, we have a new 8-Week Group Mentorship class that begins Nov. 2, 2020. We hope to see you there! We include all courses and software with Lifetime Licenses. This is an all-inclusive bundle designed to have you up and ready for a POSITIVE (see what we did there?) 2021 year of trading.

How to Place Trades – Important for Beginner Traders

Still confused about placing orders? Do you know what the different types of orders are? Are you sure you’re using the best type of order for your trading method? This video sets out to answer these questions and many more. You’ll see a demonstration of the various order types (MIT, limit, stop-limit, market etc.).

>> Take the next step to become a pro trader <<

In case it is not clear, orders are placed using NinjaTrader’s SuperDOM (Dynamic). Yes, you could use Chart Trader, but we feel that limits the “view” and easy access to various order types. To open a SuperDOM in NinjaTrader, go to the Control Center > New > SuperDOM (Dynamic).

The SuperDOM consists of the current price (in yellow, typically) along with buyers and sellers who have engaged the market at various price values. Some people really take all that (Level II) data into consideration, but in most cases, we tend to ignore it and favor chart price action instead.

The inexperienced may be unaware of NinjaTrader’s order placement shortcuts. For example, using the Ctrl key (on a Windows keyboard), you can switch between a limit and an MIT order. Also, from our experience, a fair number of traders have no idea how to move orders around. Within the chart, if you enable Chart Trader, you can drag and drop order to reposition them at different values. This is covered around the 10:00 point in the video. You may want to pull out a pen and piece of paper to take notes. Review those notes later to commit this to memory.

By the way, this was a live webinar. We answered questions from attendees. Thank you to everyone who attended!

You can learn how to day trade in eight weeks by taking part in our eight-week Mentorship Program. All courses and software are included with Lifetime Licenses. The next class begins Nov. 2. That’s right around the corner!

E-mini Day Trading Signals: Scalping & Price Action

You saw our signals from Friday, but what about today? Any winners?

Yes! In fact, the most exciting part of this video occurs at the end where a Trade Scalper short trade almost hits the stop loss, but continues to the profit target. This es exactly why discipline (i.e. sticking to the rules) is very important. It may have been tempting to cut the trade short at a loss rather than see it through to a surprising (for some) winning trade. Patience is key…

>> See our courses and software <<

In the first portion of the video, we see an Atlas Line signal that resulted in a breakeven or small loss. Yes, losses will happen! That’s just a part of trading you have to be prepared for. Trading with your rent or grocery money is not a good idea.

Have risk capital set aside. After that Atlas Line signal, we see a winning short Trade Scalper signal followed by other smaller winners (Strength/S and Pullback/P signals). Was the Atlas Line useless during that time? Absolutely not. Remember, the Atlas Line serves to confirm other trading signals/systems. Because the Short Trade Scalper signal occurred below the Atlas Line, we felt more confident in the two Short Trade Scalper signals that happened to be winners (interesting!).

We hope this video was helpful. Remember, this is yet another demonstration of our signals. Right here on our blog, we posted a clip of signals from Friday.

…It’s all about consistency!

To empower your trading, take a look at all of our courses and software. We also have an eight-week Mentorship coming up on Nov. 2. Early enrollment is a great idea, as you can learn methods ahead of time. Email us at support@daytradetowin.com if you have any questions.
