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.
Do You Guess or Do You Follow a Strategy?
September 18, 2020
We trade using specific rules. Price patterns and signals tell us whether there is a trade. We use the ATR and other rules to determine if the trade is worth taking. Shown here, the Atlas Line provides multiple types of entry signals. We teach you the rules for how to trade each signal and how to exclude potential losers and find potential winners. At the end of the video, you'll see a real-time trade based on a short Strength signal. The Atlas Line is a good directional reference that can confirm anticipated price direction for your other techniques.
Prepare Yourself for These Price Action Signals
September 16, 2020
This video focuses on the many and recent Trade Scalper signals. Yes, signals appear pre-market, though you may want to wait until the regular daily votatility sets in, which historically, has been 9:30 a.m. US/Eastern. Nearly every signal was a winner. There were five within the first 1.5 hours. We are looking at 10+ signals into the afternoon; approximately 20 for the day. Do you take all of them? No. Most would have been done trading for the day at some point in the morning. We look at another day as well with approximately one losing trade out of 14+.
Yet Another Great Day: See Real-time Signals
September 11, 2020
Look at the Atlas Line and Trade Scalper signals for today. The first two short signals were winners. The Atlas Line's short signal occurred right on time before the big move down. By the time you were out of that trade, the Trade Scalper was right there to tell you to sell again. The market behaved favorably, with price continuing to drop just enough for another nice winner. In real-time, you can see a Trade Scalper long signal appear. Does price move up? John Paul places a trade, which results in another win. Later, we see the Trade Scalper and Atlas Line agreeing with another long winner.
Today's Signals: ATO 2, Trade Scalper & Atlas Line
September 9, 2020
If you saw the prior video from today or looked at an E-mini chart, you probably noticed we had a trending day. For trading systems, that can be a really good thing or a really bad thing. If the signals are correct telling you to buy before a big move up, that's a good thing. That's what occurred with our trading signals. In addition, there were additional trades along the gradual move up, including the Trade Scalper. Should you take every trade? No. When you're using multiple methods live, you will find yourself in a trade already at times and it will make more sense.
Do You Know These 3 Price Action Patterns?
September 9, 2020
In this video, you'll learn how to identify three basic price action patterns: trends, "normal" volatility, and choppy conditions. These are not price patterns in the sense that they are means to directly attempt to make profit. Rather, they are quickly recognized price patterns that help decide what method to use and gauge whether a market is worth trading. We do like trending days, but they do not occur all of the time. Ideal conditions occur when the ATR (Average True Range), using a period value of two, is between two to four points on a 5-Minute E-mini chart.
Trading Signal Performance Review
September 1, 2020
Want to see the Atlas Line, Trade Scalper, and ATO 2 perform during a single day? First, we start off with an ATO 2 Long signal. Everyone who uses the ATO 2 and was looking at the E-mini with the same, basic configuration received the same signal. The idea behind the ATO 2 is one or two trades per day related to price action movement soon after the market opens. Soon after the Atlas Line also produces a Long signal. The S and P text are additional signals/opportunities recognized by the Atlas Line. The Trade Scalper is shown last.
Micro E-minis Make Trading More Affordable
August 27, 2020
If you want a more affordable way to trade with real money, consider Micro E-minis. The MES instrument/market behaves just like its ES twin. However, the values of the MES are 1/10th the ES. Your potential profits and losses will also be 1/10th, and that may be a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. After practicing with real-time data, you may want to try the MES before graduating to the ES, as the MES may be a final set of training wheels, so to speak. May you be successful with your trades!
