What's Missing From Your Trading Software?
November 25, 2019
Win, lose, or draw, let's see how our indicators faired in the real-time market. We add the ATO 2 and Atlas Line software and see two signals confirming a long (buy) direction. We like when this dual confirmation occurs. The ATR (a free NinjaTrader indicator that we often use) indicated the profit target potential was nearly two points. Our software is focused on price action. This differs from other indicatosr that use weighted moving averages, stochastics, etc.

Be ready with an ATM Strategy or the right order type for real-time market conditions. Remember to use NinjaTrader's Trade Performance tool to generate a report.
See +4 Points Trading the E-mini
November 20, 2019
We're continuing to share a number of recent days using the same set of indicators, mainly the ATO 2 and Atlas Line. The signals are loud and clear. We avoid chasing the market and try to get in as close to the signal as possible. The first trade was around +2.5 points. The second was around +2 points. Look at how close price comes to closing on the opposite side of the Atlas Line. If that happened, we'd have to close off the trade according to the Prove-It stop loss rules.

Do You Trade the E-mini Like This?
November 12, 2019
At 9:55 a.m. EST, the Atlas Line trading system fired off a signal when price reached 3094.5. What about the profit target? We like to use a dynamic value that reflects current market potential. Specifically, we use the ATR with a Period value of 4. We believe this provides a picture of where the market can go in a given moment. For example, there may be less profit potential in a less active market and vice versa. Remember to download our news indicator.
