Atlas Line Signal for +3 Points or $750 (x5 Contracts)
May 20, 2021
Here's a recap of the Atlas Line signals for May 19, 2021. John Paul also shares a real-time Atlas Line trade. Keep in mind, a couple of the signals displayed are for the Trade Scalper. The Atlas Line's signals can be identified via the Atlas Line or Atlas Short text. In addition, the Atlas Line provides P (Pullback) and S (Strength) signals near candles. These are additional opportunities. John Paul trades such an oportunity, a Strength trade, according to the series of three S signals. His decision to use a three-point profit target is based on current market conditions as assessed by the ATR.
Trailing Stop Tips for Price Action Trading
May 18, 2021
Is trailing a stop always a good idea? This recording captures a segment of the day's live webinar in which John Paul shares Trade Scalper signals as well as advice on trailing stops. Should a trailing stop always be used? In short, he says a trailing stop should only be used in certain circumstances where pice action dicates such an approach is available. Otherwise, a trailing stop may cause a premature exit/loss due to normal price fluctuations. He prefers to use trailing stops when "going for more" such as a profit target of 2x or 3x the ATR. Again, price action dictates this approach.
A 1-Minute, 1-Point Scalping Trade
May 10, 2021
Everyone who uses the Trade Scalper on the same types of charts will see the same signals. It's always been this way. Here, we have John Paul sharing his approach to a Long signal from the Trade Scalper. For this trade, entering with one tick of slippage is acceptable. Chasing a signal because you're too late is generally the wrong thing to do. You can trail a stop to try to lock in profit should a trade work against you. For this trade, he's using an MIT order which is soon filled. The profit target is one point using five contracts. That's $250 before any fees, commissions, etc.

If you're using a laptop or have just one screen, this configuration is useful in presenting actionable information at a glance. Multiple indicators can be added as well. Two ATRs are used, here: one for each chart.
Tired of Market Manipulation? Watch This.
April 29, 2021
Big trading firms, their traders, and their systems have been tricking retail traders for years. They dump in a bunch of orders, the market moves a certain way, then activity comes to a sudden halt and reverses. Meanwhile, you though you got in early on a trend and it's resulted in a loss. Is that fair? Well, market fairness has been a topic of hot discussion lately considering how the SEC regulates these firms. John Paul uses the Roadmap to cut through the fog, identifying key "zone" areas where manipulation may occur. The implication is that the same types of manipulation is somewhat predictable and occurs repeatedly.
More on Counter-trend Conditions
April 21, 2021
When it comes to trading price action, you can look at opportunities in two ways: do they go with the trend or agains the trend? If they go against the trend, they are said to be counter-trend. For example, the X-5, Roadmap, Blueprint are all price action trading methods we teach in the 8-Week Mentorship that are counter-trend. The Roadmap will identify zones where a reversal may well happen. As price trends to that key zone area, there could be a countering of the trend by sudden reversal activity. That's one example of counter-trend activity. Be careful about entering into a position after a large amount of market movement.
What Does Counter-trend Mean?
April 20, 2021
Most of this video discusses recent Trade Scalper signals. If you're new to scalping, the idea is to get in and out quickly in order to minimize risk. The longer a trade is active, the greater the risk. If you're in and out, the idea is there's less opportunity for things to go haywire. When scalping and trading other methods, you should still keep an eye on scheduled financial news events. The Trade Scalper provides clear entry signals. There will be losing trades. You can see such a signal at the end of the video. Absorb all the training you can and take time to practice with real-time or replayed data.

This video shows you how trading can be fun and rewarding. The first thing you see is a three-point Atlas Line opportunity based on the signal that occurred in the morning, US/Eastern time. Soon after, the Trade Scalper is added to the same 5-minute chart. Normally, a 1-minute chart is preferred for scalping. Starting at 2:30 p.m., we discuss what large candles mean and how to trade them. Are they opportunities? No, they can be the last exchaustion, as John Paul puts it, before price begins to possible stall out and/or reverse. Multiple examples are given. If you want to learn more about these techniques, join our 8-Week Mentorship.
