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.
More Big Market Moves in Q4 2019?
October 11, 2019
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.
2 Atlas Line Trading System Signals
October 8, 2019
Here are two Atlas Line trades. One occurred earlier in the day and the other one plotted around 11:30 a.m. US/Eastern. As almost always, we use the ATR (Average True Range) for determining the profit target and stop loss. We post this videos regularly to give you a sense of what using the trading software is like.
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.
