There's a long-term, accurate strategy called the January Effect you can learn easily to identify potential winning trades throughout the year. These trades are generally longer-term than the typical day trading that we do. The January Effect is something we've covered in many past years. Since we're now nearing the end of January 2020, we can see if the January Effect applies to 2020. If it does, we can look for buy/long opportunities based on specific rules.
Scalp Trading & Risk Management
January 22, 2020
Right away, you can see two Trade Scalper signals. We're using a 2-Range chart with NinjaTrader 8. A 2-Range chart means that each candle or bar is worth two ticks or .5 points. In fast or volatile conditions, bars plot quickly. The opposite is true for slow conditions. We like a market that is "just right." With the included training, we'll show you exactly what to look for. Jump ahead to 2:42 to see what happened with the more recent signal.
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.

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.
