Indicators That Work for Day Trading
November 19, 2019
How many people are actually making a good living trading the markets and what indicators do they use? This is a question you've probably asked yourself at some point. As you can see, we've been posting many showing the operation of our indicators in real-time conditions. Here's an example of the Trade Scalper. We recently received a testimonial from a Trade Scalper user saying it's been on fire lately and his favorite method he's used thus far in his Mentorship training.
A Final 2019 Trading Prediction?
November 14, 2019
Will the markets close higher or lower at the end of 2019? Watch this video for our ideas. At about 3:00 in, John Paul presents information that may put you in a better position for the holidays. The highs may be tested again before year's end. Expect a follow-up to this video that reflects on whether the estimations were accurate or otherwise. The ideas here are based on the January Effect; a strategy we've covered in great detail in the past.
Atlas Line & ATO 2: Against All Odds
November 13, 2019
Take a look at the Atlas Line and ATO 2 performing against the market in real-time. The Trade Scalper is also shown on a 2 Range chart, as we call it. We've had many traders prefer the 2 Range chart over the traditional 1 Minute chart traditionally used with this method. We'll let you know the best settings to use when you purchase. More trading signals equals more potential opportunities, such as those used to recover from earlier trades.
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.
Making the Same Trading Mistakes?
November 7, 2019
Here's a recording from a live webinar. Right away, you can see the Atlas Line signals. Other Atlas Line users see the same exact signals, and you can, too. At 5:00, take a look at the ATO 2 signal. The signals produced by this other method are entirely different than the Atlas Line's. We like to use more than one system for more signals as well as confirmation.

How to Trade Better Using Two Systems
October 17, 2019
On the left, we have a 2 Range chart with the Trade Scalper indicator applied. On the right, observe the Atlas Line. The market is the same: E-mini. What happens when both systems agree that you should place a trade to the short side? We see this as confirmation. With NinjaTrader, it's easy to set up and compare multiple charts, as is the case here. What system takes priority? Should you place two trades, i.e. one for each system? Watch the video.
Is Scalping Always a Fast Trading Technique?
October 16, 2019
In short, the answer is no. For example, John Paul waits longer than normal to enter the trade. This is a good way to demonstrate that winning trades can occur even if you don't rush to NinjaTrader to place a trade. If you're multitasking (not really recommended when trading, by the way), you can Alt+Tab back to NinjTrader or return to your desk due to a configured audio signal. In this case, the trade is worth 3 ticks. Multiple winning trades can add up.
Trading Signals: Atlas Line Bounces
October 16, 2019
You'll notice many Atlas Line signals here. The Atlas Long and Short are the main signals. The seldom seen Atlas-B (Bounce) signals are also enabled, providing more opportunities. Don't mix up the ATO 2 signals (they're configured to be the same color as the others). In the upper-right corner, you'll notice a display that includes the chart type among other things. That's the Ruler tool. It's useful for measuring price distances among candles.
Day Trading Order Types: Stop, Limit, Etc.
October 15, 2019
Do you know the differences among the multiple types of orders that can be placed in NinjaTrader and other trading platforms? This is one of the most confusing concepts for new traders. If you're using the wrong order type for a given situation, you can miss out big. Market orders are probably the easiest to understand. You get in where price happens to be at the moment, give or take some delay with the platform, broker, network, etc.
All trades should be considered hypothetical. No guarantees or claims of performance are offered. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Day trading is risky and may cause substantial financial loss. Individual performance may vary, as trading subjects your finances to new, unexpected market conditions. You are responsible for executing trades. Before trading, consult with a licensed broker and a financial expert see if day trading is suitable for you.
