In this video, you'll see the Trade Scalper signals. Keep in mind, this is the public display version of the indicator, which lacks a few features included with the customer-only version. For example, the customer version draws horizontal and vertical lines so that you can see price barriers and get ready to place your trade early. By using NinjaTrader's measuring tool, you can get a look at potential profits and losses easily. Ninja's Account Performance tool is also useful.

Using MetaTrader to Day Trade Forex
August 24, 2018
Although we love NinjaTrader, there's no harm in looking at other platforms and understanding how they work. From our years in business, we also know that many traders stick with certain platforms just because it's difficult to transition to a new platform because of brokerage accounts and time needed to learn something entirely new. For those of you who use MetaTrader or want to learn how, check out this video. For futures trading, you'll have to use MetaTrader 5.
Scalping Strategy Used on DAX
August 17, 2018
Ever looked at the German DAX market? In NinjaTrader, you can open an FDAX chart. The FDAX is sort of like the German version of the E-mini. It's composed of 30 major German companies from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. To trade the market open in U.S. time zones, you'll have to get up early. Fortunately, the Trade Scalper method is quite flexible in the times it can be traded. As you can see in this video, losing trades can and will occur. There should be some winners, too.

The signals occurred around 10 a.m. EDT. At the time, the ATR was around 2.75. With the consistent bullish price movement, you may have very well hit your profit target on the next candle. Later in the day, the Atlas Line also produced a few nice Strength trades. Questions? Email is at email@example.com.

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.
