Market Forecast: 2 Support Levels to Watch
March 11, 2020
In this must-watch video, John Paul shares two important support levels he believes are fundamental to upcoming market activity. The current support level is 2750. It's important to remember that markets fall faster than they rise. In other words, if price will rise, it will take longer than a fall. If price falls to the next identified support level of 2355, we may see further rapid selling as stop losses and algorithm triggers are hit. Check out the Atlas Line signals as well.
How to Trade Halts in the Market
March 9, 2020
Today, regulators halted trading early on due to the downward volatility. If high-frequency trading algos were left to trade, it's possible it could have been a race to the bottom. This is why the markets are forced to pause under such conditions; so that systems and human traders can 'reset'. In six minutes or so, John Paul breaks down his approach. There are multiple levels and regulatory actions. Level 2 is reached if the S&P declines 13%: trading is then paused for 15 min.

Atlas Line Trading Under Fast Conditions
March 2, 2020
How do you trade the Atlas Line under these volatile conditions? Like this. See the Short signal at 2974.75? That's generated by the software whenever there are two closes below the diagonal Atlas Line. A Long signal would have been generated when two bars close above the diagonal Atlas Line. Jump to 3:27 if you want to see the signals for the day. We recommend avoiding the smaller Strenth (S) and Pullback (P) signals when the markets are this fast.
Trade Scalper Trading Under Fast Conditions
March 2, 2020
Here's an example of how we're scalping the fast markets as of late. We're using the Trade Scalper with a 2 Range chart. There have been many opportunities. You can see that we're going for a profit of 2.5 points, which is normally much greater than the typical scalping profit target. We have to adapt because fast market fluctations would easily tap out normal profit targets and stop losses. Go with the trades that make the most sense. Go to the 4:30 mark to see an overview for the day.
Price Action Trading Signals Webinar: Part 2 of 3
February 25, 2020
Do you know what an ATM Strategy is and why you should almost always use one? It's a feature in NinjaTrader that lets you preconfigure a profit target and a stop loss ahead of time. Then once you place a trade with the ATM Strategy selected, the profit target and stop loss are automatically applied. This can help prevent mistakes. We like to use the SuperDOM more than Chart Trader. You may want to configure a variety of ATM Strategies for common profit/stop combinations.

Can You Make Big Money Trading Big Big Volatility?
February 20, 2020
The short answer is yes, but the risk may not be worth it. Take a look at the ATR value that increased soon after the second Atlas signal. As a result of the signal, it's possible that you could have had a position going short during that period of increased volatility. Do you ride out the storm and hope for the best? Do you exit your position after the ATR climbs to something like eight points? Watch the video. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Really Fast Trade Scalper E-mini Trade
February 11, 2020
This begins with a trade resulting from a real-time Trade Scalper signal. The order was two ticks away from the desired entry price. You could call that two ticks of slippage. In any case, this trade was over very quickly. Remember, in the E-mini (ES), each tick is worth $12.50. A point conisists of four ticks. Therefore, a point is worth $50. When scalping with the Trade Scalper, the average profit target is about three ticks. Remember to factor in broker fees, etc.
