2 Charts With One Goal: Winning Trades
January 17, 2020
We often like to pair our Trade Scalper with our Atlas Line indicator. One uses a 2-Range chart. The latter uses a 5-Min chart. As such, you can see both charts side-by-side here with the indicators running and ready to produce signals. The Trade Scalper has already produced a nice signal earlier in the day (see it in purple). Two more signals appear during this video. We like one method to confirm another. The Atlas Line can provide a bigger overall picture.

Ninja 8 Indicator License Activation Instructions
December 11, 2019
Do you know how to install a NinjaTrader 8 indicator? It's something most traders should know how to do. We cover this in more detail on our blog. However, this video explains the steps in sufficient detail. An indicator is a way to expand the functionality of the trading platform, thereby giving you, the trader, another reference. However, not all references are equal! Our Atlas Line, ATO 2, and Trade Scalper products are indicator-based. Each indicator provides signals.
Pre-Market Trading: A Mistake or Good Idea?
December 10, 2019
The pre-market is a period of time before the main volatility of the day occurs. If you trade the E-mini S&P 500, pre-market would be before 9:30 a.m. US/Eastern. You can see for yourself when a market opens by using an ATR indicator and reviewing many days to see repeated price activity that begins at a specific time of day. Pre-market trading is often seen as risky because it's generally slow. Also, watch out for volatility during the first 15 minutes after the open.
How to Manage Day Trading Scalping Risks
December 9, 2019
Don't take every trade you see! Just because our Trade Scalper indicator has many signals, you'll need to hold back now and then. Market conditions may not always be ideal. Trading before and after market may be too slow. Chances are that you probably don't want to be in a position for that long. This video shares a real-time trade. The trade took longer than usual, which can certainly occur of trading when there's low activity. At 3:55, see the Atlas Line and ATO 2.
What's Missing From Your Trading Software?
November 25, 2019
Win, lose, or draw, let's see how our indicators faired in the real-time market. We add the ATO 2 and Atlas Line software and see two signals confirming a long (buy) direction. We like when this dual confirmation occurs. The ATR (a free NinjaTrader indicator that we often use) indicated the profit target potential was nearly two points. Our software is focused on price action. This differs from other indicatosr that use weighted moving averages, stochastics, etc.

November 22, 2019
Here's the second of three installments of the latest live webinar. Expect more questions and answers. Are auto-trading systems any good, and if not, what are the pitfalls? Auto-trading often does not account for news events or other activity that programming cannot easily handle, such as incomplete market data that throws off automated systems.

Atlas Line Review: +2.5 & +3.5 Point Profit Targets
November 21, 2019
Atlas Line users who have a 6-Month and Lifetime License see the same signals. The only difference is the duration of the license. This means you would see the exact same signals shown in this video. For the second trade, we used an MIT (Market If Touched) order. The market works on a first-come, first-served basis. Be ready with an ATM Strategy or the right order type for real-time market conditions. Remember to use NinjaTrader's Trade Performance tool to generate a report.
See +4 Points Trading the E-mini
November 20, 2019
We're continuing to share a number of recent days using the same set of indicators, mainly the ATO 2 and Atlas Line. The signals are loud and clear. We avoid chasing the market and try to get in as close to the signal as possible. The first trade was around +2.5 points. The second was around +2 points. Look at how close price comes to closing on the opposite side of the Atlas Line. If that happened, we'd have to close off the trade according to the Prove-It stop loss rules.
