News Events, Choppy Markets and Predictions


We’ve received a ton of email from traders who want to learn techniques that work across all futures and currencies. Your prayers have been answered. The video above shows three day trading strategies you can use regardless of your charting platform (NinjaTrader, eSignal, TradeStation, MetaStock,etc.).

First, John Paul of Day Trade to Win shows how to trade news events. Contrary to the popular approach, his method does not involve predicting the move of price when the news event is first announced. Instead, he outlines rules to recognize the trade. If the setup occurs, you can then enter the trade according to additional rules. This is a great example of an objective, evidence-based method.

Second, a method for recognizing choppy market conditions is taught. By recognizing the back and forth movement caused by inverse buy and sell orders, you can learn to stay out of potentially damaging market conditions. This is called the “Yo Yo Method.”

The last portion of the video discusses John’s projections for 2012 and 2015. He expects the price of indices to rise by the end of the year as compared to January’s opening price. He also estimates 2015 to be bullish according to a pattern that is said to be 100% accurate for years ending with a five digit. You’ll have to watch to hear his explanation/.
