Confirming Multiple Signals Via Multiple Systems
September 10, 2021
Many traders can get by with one trading system. But the day may come where one asks, "How do I filter out some of these losing signals?" Because, with any system, there will be some trades that just don't work out. The idea is that if you can find a decent system that pairs well with your existing system, you may be better off. That's how we design our systems here at DayTradeToWin. We have years of videos that show multiple methods working nicely together. Here is another example. In this case, three methods are used: Trade Scalper, Atlas Line, and ATO 2. Do you have to take every signal? No; filter and go with what you think will be best.
Are Support & Resistance Trading Methods Still Valid?
September 10, 2021
The idea behind support and resistance is that a given asset, currency, derivative, etc. will not experience unlimited buying or selling within a specific period. Moreover, the period will be defined by high and low points due to the perceived or actual value of the instrument. When these thresholds are reached, we may define the area as support or resistance. This ceasing of continued buying or selling can be a stalling out or chop followed by a reversal or continuation in the same direction. This video shows a direct example of how John Paul thinks about support and resistance.

Do You Watch the News Before You Trade?
September 2, 2021
It may be wise if you take a look at the day's scheduled news events that are said to affect the markets. We have multiple calendars available through this website as well as a downloadable indicator. This video discusses the downloadable indicator that plugs right in to the charts. Once applied, you will see [H] (high), [M] (medium), and [L] low-impact events. The high-impact USD-related events are the ones to watch for if you trade USD-based futures. The different news event types are color coded. You may want to adjust the maximum number of events to a value like 5. Doing so will provide for a cleaner chart.

Basic ATM Strategy Configuration Instructions
August 27, 2021
Using an ATM Strategy will help protect against loss because a profit target and stop loss will be applied as configured. This way, if something happens while you're in a trade, you have those two things to protect you from price taking off in another direction. An ATM Strategy, at the basic level, is configured with tick values (not points). So, if one desires a two-point profit target, 8 ticks must be specified as one point equals four ticks. Once you've got the hang of configuring and saving one ATM Strategy, you can repeat the same steps to establish other variations. This way, you can pick the best one for current market activity.

Want a trading system that can work with multple markets? Prefer more than one or two signals per day? Want to decide whether you should be sticking with long or short trades?

In this video, you'll see charts for the Euro (6E), Dow (YM), Nasdaq (NQ) and E-mini (ES).

1 Hour & +5.25 Points – Trade Scalper Signals
August 10, 2021
Here's an overview of four Trade Scalper signals within a given hour. These signals total +5.25 points, which is significant. Many reasonable traders would, after having that success, be done for the day. Over-trading is best avoided. By the way, on your NinjaTrader chart, you can easily measure the distances between two points or candles via the Ruler tool in the drawing menu. The Ruler tool allows one to click three times to see the measurement. The first click defines the first point, the second click the second point, and the final click is where the measurement should be displayed.
What Can a $1T Infrastructure Bill Do For Us?
August 10, 2021
The answer to that question may involve some debate. You may want to observe how much of that money is spent on removing chemicals and toxins from municipal water systems, the oceans, and the air. What about the building of Earth-friendly, sustainable, and affordable organic food systems? If what our bodies take in is polluted, and we use our bodies to perceive and to think, then how can we be so sure we are perceiving and thinking clearly? Yes, this does apply to day trading. If you're a healthier person, you will probably have a greater ability to observe, stay focused, and find potential winning moves.

Going for $562.50 With the Atlas Line
August 4, 2021
In this video, you'll see three Atlas Line signals. The most recent signal that appears toward the right of the chart is used to demonstrate a trade worth $562.50 based on the number of contracts in use. Keep in mind, broker fees and other such things are not accounted for in that amount. The trade is over rather quickly, as John Paul doesn't like to hang around too long with an open position. In fact, every moment you're in a trade is a moment of risk. Therefore, it is wise to have clear rules you follow for every trade – especially rules that govern maximum values for profits and stops.
