Futures trading has almost been around since the beginning of time, in one form or another. A major difference now is the accessibility to markets all over the world and the way orders are instantly placed. Another difference is that rules and regulations are set in place to protect the buyers and sellers. Along with all the red tape is the notion of contract rollover. A beginner day trading course will most likely not provide the information needed to prepare traders to rollover when the time is right. I have daily conversations with day traders all over the world, and how to day trade consistently is a common theme discussed. You may like E-Mini trading or maybe you fancy Currency trading, but truth be told that all traders should know the basic concept of rolling over to the next contract month when the time is right. To start you off on the right foot, I want you to learn day trading right from the start, and that means that learning to rollover a futures contract correctly is key!
The rule of thumb is to rollover to the following contract month on the 2nd Thursday or Friday of the expiring month. That’s it!
Simple, to the point and now you know.
E-mini and financials indexes, futures currencies and any other futures markets all work the same way. Find out more about futures contract rollover.
Knowing when and how to enter markets like the Euro Currency is 50% of the battle. The other 50% is deciding when to exit. The Atlas Line® day trading software works by making this extremely easy: order signals are automatically produced, advising you when to enter. In addition, the plotted line helps confirm the direction of price. When price is above the line, go with long trades. When below, go short. A free webinar is included with purchase, so you can learn special setups that can only be identified with the training, such as the Pullback trade that occurred around 10:50 a.m. today (see chart).
Futures trading (and currency tading) is safer than trading markets like Forex. In addition, emini trading is much safer compared to markets like the Japanese Yen, which seem to be all over the place. When trading the Euro, always use stops and trade with a clear direction in mind. The free webinar allows you to learn day trading for consistent profits in markets like the Canadian Dollar, Crude Light, British Pound, Australian Dollar and other decent-performers.
Grabbing Points Trading the Euro (6E)
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.
Nice E-Mini Trade Worth 1.5 Points
Remember, until midnight tonight (U.S. Eastern time) , you can get the 50% off the 6-Month and Lifetime Atlas Line. The Atlas Line recognizes perfect setups (like the ones below) on a daily basis, letting you know in advance when and how to enter the market. Since the Atlas Line is a price action reference tool, you don’t have to worry about it lagging like an indicator.
E-Mini S&P – May 2, 2011
Three trades for a total of 2.75 points. All trades occurred before noon.
Euro Currency – May 2, 2011
Many traders probably went short once they saw the big red candle at 9:46 a.m. Atlas Line traders knew otherwise – the Long signal and angle of the Atlas Line kept us on the correct side of the trade, going long for a few points. This type of setup is called an Atlas Line Pullback and is taught in the live workshop that is included with purchase.
Crude Light – May 2, 2011
Once the Atlas Line was plotted and the Long order signal was given, we knew trading Crude Light was going to be worthwhile. You can see how the line intersects price at the exact moment when going long is the best idea. Using the Atlas Line is almost like having 20/20 foresight.
Yesterday, Private Mentorship students were shown how to take profit in the E-Mini S&P (ES) using an ATO trade. The ATO is one of the 11 price action methods taught in the Private Mentorship Program. This trade was done live, trading-room style in front of course participants. As the students were already taught the ATO, the setup occurred at an ideal time for John Paul to demonstrate how to take the trade.
Notice how the profit target does not change; it’s static.
In the Private Mentorship Program, trades are reviewed in daily sequence, making sure every signal is clearly defined during each training session. Instruction focuses on reading price action; not using indicators or relying on mystical sources. We objectively trade what we see on the charts.
Yesterday, John Paul recorded a video showing how he used the Power Price Action method to snag a 4 tick move in the E-Mini S&P. Notice how is chart is completely free of indicators – that’s because he knows how to enter based on price action (particularly, the Power Price method). The trade setup was objectively identified during a live educational session, allowing for attendees to see how simple it was to capture a few points. The market told him that it was going long, so all that he had to do was place a respective order.
The Power Price Action course consists of 4 DVDs that teach you the method and other price action strategies. You also get 8 weeks of live training with John Paul, where he shows you how to trade the method live. Yes, it works with other indices, Forex, currencies and other markets.
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.

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.

The S&P’s debt rating service projected a poor credit rating for the U.S. today. With this big news, the markets tanked. We pulled up a couple of charts to see how the Atlas Line performed for traders in two separate markets: the E-Mini S&P and Crude Light.
E-Mini S&P (ES) – April 18, 2011
The Atlas Line was spot on in the E-Mini S&P, advising two short orders. The first order was a Double Bar Short, the second, an Atlas Line Pullback Trade. In case you don’t know what a Pullback Trade is, John Paul teaches traders how to identify them in the webinar included with purchase.
Crude Light (CL) – April 18, 2011
Three winning trades. First, a Double Bar Short signal followed by two Pullback trades. When news about the U.S. comes out that is revered with such high importance, there’s a great effect on all markets. We recommend waiting until the news event volatility has subsided before using price action software like the Atlas Line.

It’s time to turn up the volume and open your mind as John Paul demonstrates two unbelievable trades. They’re so good, we’re letting the trades themselves do the talking.
At first, he does the unthinkable: going short right after three consecutive large green candles. Why? The Atlas Line said so. Price was headed toward the Atlas Line, indicating an Atlas Line pull back trade (at least two bars pulling back followed by one candle closing in the red). ORDER FILLED. This resulted in a nice 1 point winner based on only on price action and the Atlas Line.
Next, we had a crazy good time trading the Atlas Line on the Euro (6E) today. Plenty of opportunities for profit:
Trade 1 – Short – win for 5-6 ticks
Trade 2 – Short – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 3 – Long – loss for 6-7 ticks
Trade 4 – Short – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 5 – Long – win for 6-7 ticks
Trade 6 – Long – win for 4-5 ticks
Using the ATR, we knew when to get out. In total, this could have been a day of 32 ticks for Atlas Line traders. How well did you do today trading the Euro Currency?
