Trade Scalper: Following Signals on 2-Range and 1-Minute Charts
June 29, 2020
If possible, do not move your entry, profit target, stop loss, etc. Doing so will put you at the back of the line and you may not get what you want. Also, it's best to place your trade as soon as possible after the signal appears. If you miss out, don't change another perceived opportunity. Extending yourself in the market in terms of time and extra trades is generally unwise. This video also demonstrates MIT orders, which are useful and convert to market orders.

If you've ever looked at your SuperDOM in NinjaTrader or price ladder in a different platform, you've probably seen the fluctuating buyers and sellers. This is called Level II data.

This tricks human traders and trading systems. For good reason, we don't use Level II data to make tading decisions.

The training video and live training are comprehensive. We also provide email support for your trading questions.
