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.

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.

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.

We've used the January Effect for years as a predictive tool. According to the rule, one may be able to tell whether the E-mini will close higher in December than in January if January the same year also closed higher than it opened. For 2019, we can observe such activity. As shown around 2:00, we see a clear bullish progression. The other portion of the January Effect rules relate to bullish entry opportunities that occur upon retracement.

Fear, greed, and hope are three huge psychological components of trading. We use the term Mr. Market to refer to the combiend force of big market participants like hedge funds and trading firms. In this video, you can see how price gets locked into a range. Some price action within the range is manipulation to shake off and attract new traders. Big players can act at almost anytime to cause artificial buying or selling. Beware Mr. Market!
