Trade Worth 2+ Points Spotted by ATO 2 Software

Atlas Line, ATO 2, and ABC Trades All in One Day

Here’s the E-mini S&P with today’s Atlas Line and ATO signals. The Atlas Line’s Strength and Pullback trades provided additional opportunities. Later in the day (the B part), an additional Atlas Line signal was generated. Using the ATR, we can see this signal was worth risking two points. Recently, we’ve seen the market whipsaw back and forth. John Paul thinks this chopping period will soon be over, as markets tend to be cyclical. The ABC setup also occurred, with price breaking out of the A period (first 2.5 hours after market open). That’s why you see the ABC Short signal....

Are the Markets Manipulated? You Decide…

Jim Cramer, made popular through his CNBC show Mad Money, discusses manipulation in this video.  With as little as $5 million from his hedge fund, Jim confesses that he was able to influence futures markets in order to make profit more easily.  By creating a level of activity with the proper funding, you can drive futures in a favorable direction.  Regarding manipulation tactics, Jim says, “It’s a fun game.  It’s a lucrative game.  You can move it up and then fade it.  That often creates a very negative feel.”  When you boost a market up and then the real market...
