Another Retracement? No Problem for Atlas Line
November 22, 2017
This is another video in a series of recent updates we've been publishing that show January Effect trades with the Atlas Line. The January Effect is a free trading method that we teach that uses the month of January as a predictive tool for possibly determining how the rest of the year will trend. This year is expected to be an up year, so that means we can focus on finding long trades when the rules are triggered. For intraday opportunities, the Atlas Line works well. The software calls out long (buy) trades.
More Long Winners Coming? January Effect Says Yes
November 16, 2017
Our last video showed the great Atlas Line buy (long) signal that apppeared in the E-mini market. How would you have traded it? John Paul demonstrates using a simple market order soon after the signal appears. His profit target is based on current market conditions (ATR value on the bottom of the chart). The January Effect provided confirmation, as John Paul noticed a possible retracement back up to the prior market high. The goal is to maximize profit potential and minimize loss using an adaptive approach.
January Effect Finds Good Long Trades With Atlas Line
November 16, 2017
According to the January Effect predictive technique, 2017 will be an up year. So far, that prediction has been correct. Price has continued to reach new highs as we near the end of the year. As such, there are opportunities to find winning long (buy) trades. Watch this video to review how you can find moments where price reaches a high, falls, and retraces back up. This move back up is what we look for with the January Effect method. See how we use the Atlas Line to find intraday trends.
2 Days of Back-to-back Signals
November 14, 2017
Look at how the ATO 2 and Atlas Line worked together for two consecutive days. John Paul prefers to take a long or short trade when multiple methods confirm the same direction. On November 13, the ATO 2 and Atlas Line generated long signals. The following day, both matched with short signals. The best way to get both methods is to join the next Mentorship class. You're taught everything by John Paul. Essentially, you learn how to read a chart and find trades. This way, there is no guessing.
Atlas Line Software Finds +24 Ticks?
November 10, 2017
Wow, what a Friday. As typical on Fridays, the market can chop around a bit. This normally makes for bad trading. However, the Atlas Line had a really good day. In the video, you can see how the software signals were correct the majority of the time, resulting in a potential +24 ticks of profit. Note that this total is there was no slippage and you followed the rules precisely. Even if you did not get in every trade perfectly, there should have been room for success. Of course, trading is risky so invest wisely.

He goes over how the ATO 2 and Atlas Line work together. If you only trade with one strategy, you could be sitting on the sidelines until that perfect setup appears. Don't let the market pass you by. Learn how to look for opportunities most traders miss. Mentorship teaches you one complete trading plan with strategies that work together.
Combining the ATO 2 & Atlas Line
October 20, 2017
If you were using the Atlas Line alone, you may have avoided this long trade because of overbought/oversold conditions. The ATO 2 signal coincidentally fired off at the same price, confirming the trade's direction. When two or more strategies validate a direction at around the same time, John Paul believes better results may occur. The ATR (Average True Range) tells us this trade is with two points. We simply use the ATR with a period value of four and round down the current ATR value for the profit target.

NinjaTrader 8 SuperDOM Order Placement
October 6, 2017
If you plan to place trades in NinjaTrader, you have a couple of options. The Chart Trader interface is rather basic. We prefer using a SuperDOM, which offers a display of buy and sell market activity along with a panel that allows many different types of orders. In this video, John Paul discusses the differences between market orders, limit orders, stop orders, and MIT orders as well as how to place each type. If you use NinjaTrader with a Mac (via virtual machine), make sure you have a middle mouse button.
