Will the Stock Market Recover?
February 15, 2018
In late January, news outlets were reporting on how financial markets were bulletproof. Just a couple weeks later in early February, we saw one of the biggest crashes in recent history. Ever since, the markets (including the E-mini) have been very volatile. Will things ever return to normal? What caused the crash? What day trading strategies will work when the ATR (Average True Range) is so high on a daily basis? Let's explore some possible options that may improve your trading.
How's Your 2018 Trading So Far?
January 29, 2018
At about 10:00 a.m. EST, the Atlas Line produced a nice short signal. The ATR was at 2.65 or so. Therefore, we used a profit target of about +2.5 points, or +10 ticks. If the market was too volatile or too slow, we would have stayed out. In this instance, we did not have to worry about news events. It's important to not chase after price either. We were able to get in this trade within about a tick of the signal price. In the live training and video, we will teach you all of the rules.
2 Short Signals in Bull Market
January 9, 2018
The ATO 2 and Atlas Line produced matching signals, indicating that going short was advised despite the bull market. When more than one signal confirms market direction, traders are often more confident in the prediction. The ATR (Average True Range) allowed for about two points of profit. The profit target is always based on real-time conditions. We use smaller profits and stops on slower markets and larger profits and stops on faster markets. If the market is too slow or too fast, we stay out.

A Look Ahead at 2018 Day Trading
December 29, 2017
There were so many great opportunities in 2017. We expect many more in 2018. Take a look at how the year ended off with ATO 2 and Atlas Line signals. The ATO 2 signal appeared around 9:50 a.m. The Atlas Line signal appeared soon after at about 10 a.m. The signals correctly called out market direction ahead of time. We approach trading based on what the market can produce. We listen to price action. That's why a lower ATR will mean a smaller profit target, as seen here.
