The markets have been going strong these last couple of days. Today, we recorded this video showing signals for both the Atlas Line and Trade Scalper. There's a real-time trade placed near the end of the video. When the Atlas Line advises going short, we look for short opportunities with other systems, such as the Trade Scalper. That's what happened here. The market conditions allowed for opportunities worth over $100 with just one contract. This is a 1-Minute E-mini S&P 500 chart. You can easily replicate the chart settings using our tutorials.
Two Days of Signals Using Atlas Line
October 30, 2020
For those new to our trading software, the Atlas Line produces signals according to price action. If price goes above the dashed line and closes twice, expect a long signal. Likewise, two closes below cause a short signal. This video reviews two days of signals. You can see multiple winning trades, including the prior day with a bullish direction. The Strength (S) and Pullback (P) signals are generated as additional opportunities. Did you have winning signals those two days? With purchase, we can help you get started with the software right away.
Confused About Order Placement? Watch This...
October 21, 2020
If you're scalping, there's a specific type of order you should probably be using. In contrast, if you do not care about a tick of slippage because you're looking to make profit on a much larger move, there is a different type of order that may serve you better. You see, simply sticking with one order type makes trading simple, but perhaps so simple that you could be losing money or increasing risk unnecessarily. This is why we remind traders, time and time again, about how to use various types of orders within the NinjaTrader platform. We use the SuperDOM for order placement.
Here's Why You Should Follow Your Teacher's Rules When Trading
October 19, 2020
When the trade is going against you, it's easy to want to hit that close button. Have you ever closed out a trade prematurely to then see your stop loss not get hit and price reverse to hit your profit target instead? Maybe some people did that with the trade shown here around the 4:00 point. That's why we say it's important to stick to the rules and use a dynamic profit target and stop. That way, you risk is coordinated to current conditions. The short scalping signals occurred below the Atlas Line, which served to provide additional confirmation.
Market Predictions for Remainder of 2020
October 9, 2020
Remember, a prediction is hypothetical in nature. There is no guarantee that anything will happen. That out of the way, we are using the January Effect's prediction that 2020 will be an up year. That means we expect December 2020's E-mini S&P 500 price to close higher than in January 2020. While we experience various rises in price throughout the year, we can look for drops and recovery patterns. During the upward recovery periods, when price retraces beyond halfway, we can buy the market. The hope and belief is that price will soon reach the prior high, thus a big win.
Here's Your Free Trading Method: Easy as ABC
October 1, 2020
If you want to learn a trading method right now that you can begin using immediately, this video is for you. This is the ABC method and it will have you looking for buying/selling opportunities in the afternoon, US/Eastern. You'll learn to draw vertical lines to divide the day into three periods: A, B, and C. When price breaks out of A's high and low range with two closing candles, that's your entry for B. A similar approach is used to find an entry in period C (based on the high and low of B). If price closes twice above the high, that's a long (buy) trade. With the opposite, that's a short (sell) trade.
Here's the Atlas Line and Trade Scalper Today
September 29, 2020
Sure, you could purchase and use one system or the other. Many people like to use both. That's because the Atlas Line can provide its own signals plus an overall direction. This overall direction becomes useful to filter out and confirm the Trade Scalper signals. For example, when price is below the Atlas Line, that's when we look for short Atlas Line signals and we have greater confidence with short Trade Scalper signals. The same is true for long signals, when price is above the Atlas Line and the Trade Scalper also produces long signals. We hope this video helps you.
