Short Trade Across Multiple Markets

If you’ve ever worked with multiple charts of different futures, commodities and currencies, you will see some mirroring of price. In other words, candlesticks will occasionally look similar across the ES, CL and 6E charts if a major news or financial event is occurring. This is true mostly for trends, as we cannot claim every bar is identical. A perfect example of this is shown above. The Atlas Line trading software is accurate in identifying trends before they occur. In the video, John Paul from Day Trade to Win shows the ES, CL and 6E and how the Atlas Line called for going Short prior to price dropping by a few points in each market. Keep in mind, you should be referencing the Atlas Line specifically for the instrument you are trading. We’ve heard of Forex traders who watch the 6E since the price action is nearly identical (only advantage is having a secondary reference / data feed / charting software that may offer different features from what you’re using to trade forex. Another interesting feature with this new version of the Atlas Line is the pullback and strength trades. Plotted on the chart as an S or a P, you can use these symbols for subsequent trades after the initial Long or Short. The Atlas Line is really the perfect system for handling multiple markets on the fly, as there is very little configuration (if any). NinjaTrader makes it easy to save indicator parameters, so if the ES is slowing down, you can open a CL with your custom parameters instantly.

Reasonable Intraday Goals for Retail Traders

My experience as a retail trader for many years has taught me there is a theoretical limit to how much we can hope to achieve each day on the markets. Unless you’re running a HFT (high frequency trading) operation, you simply cannot hope to get near instantaneous executions and the type of monitoring to constantly scalp the markets in tick increments. Instead, us retail traders have to focus on more realistic goals – catching the larger moves, usually under two points, that occur every thirty minutes or so under normal E-Mini conditions. With the 9:30 a.m. US/Eastern CME open outcry opening time, this provides us with many intraday opportunities. While not every day can produce four points, we can increase our contract amount using a reliable trading method or system. My personal recommendation is the Atlas Line from Day Trade to Win. This indicator is available for NinjaTrader, TradeStation and eSignal. Order signals automatically appear on the charts to indicate the direction to buy or sell in. Stops are also taught in the included live training. The type of trading the Atlas Line produces is entirely objective and puts you in control of each trade.

At the Open Course Put to the Test

If you took the top ten E-Mini day trading systems and truthfully ran them through a profitably test for five consecutive days, chances are you would not find one that produced a net profit each day. Over the course of a week, you’d likely have a couple systems that delivered a net profit (once again, this is a weekly estimate). Days with huge losses can turn an account upset down. This is why a system that shows how to properly manage trades and reduce risk through stop losses is essential. Day Trade to Win’s ATO (At the Open) course does exactly this – the profit targets are respectable. Also, traders using this price action method won’t be subject to over-trading, as the objective is capitalizing on the E-Mini’s first big move of the day.

The ATO course is less than $600. As you can see from the video that shows five days of profit, the course can quickly pay for itself even with trading one contract. As ATO creator John Paul says, the ATO also works with currencies “that move.” The Euro is an excellent market for the ATO because of its worldwide popularity.

Right now, Day Trade to Win is offering $60 off its ATO course using the coupon code ATONEWS at checkout. The live training session is usually scheduled within a week of purchase. You can see how the ATO was plotted for the current day and last few days while asking questions.

Price Action Trading Systems Reviewed

Sifiso, a self-described trader from South Africa, provides a brief testimonial for Day Trade to Win’s price action trading systems. His experiences are positive, with profitable results for both the Atlas Line and Floor Traders Secrets Manual. For those unfamiliar with the Atlas Line, this software plots a straight (but usually angled) line on your chart to assist with determining whether to trade long or short. The primary source for Atlas Line profits are the order signals, as these exact entries are provided prior to big moves. With the supplies price, direction and confirmation / filtering mechanism the Atlas Line provides, the tool has become coveted among futures and currency traders. The lesser known price action method Sifiso mentions is the Floor Traders Secrets Manual. Also called the X-5 Trade, this method is based on trading the price value of five. John Paul further developed this method based on direct E-Mini market manipulation techniques he learned from floor traders many years ago. In fact, these same CME and NYSE traders use the method today. Unlike other price action trading methods, the X-5 works as a result of direct market movement caused by professional open outcry or cubicle traders.

Right now, Day Trade to Win has a special sale going for the Trade Scalper scalping course along with the Secrets Manual. Both can be purchased from the DTTW site with $60 off using the following coupon code: 60TRADESCALPER

Just like the Atlas Line, the Trade Scalper is an excellent addition to any trader’s skill set, as it’s based on objective principles.

Day Trading System That Works

In the video above, Day Trade to Win shows off Atlas Line results for the last three days of the E-Mini S&P. The profits are as follows: +9 points, +4 points and +4 points, totaling 15 points possible for three consecutive days. You can see how in very short time with consistent accuracy, the Atlas Line pays for itself.

Many confuse the Atlas Line as a scalping tool, when in fact, the software is an automatic order signal generator combined with filtering. If you prefer to trade your own strategy or other indicators, you can use the Atlas Line to confirm direction. When price intersects and drop below the plotted line, short trades are advised. On the contrary, long trades work best when price is above the line. The order signals, that either appear as Long or Short with an accompanying price, indicate the exact price your should enter at and whether to buy or sell the market. It really couldn’t be any easier to make money day trading. John Paul, the creator of the software, conducts webinars for customers so they can see how to take each trade and learn the other Atlas Line-specific trade setups (Bounce, Strong and Pullback).

The Atlas Line is compatible with the latest versions of NinjaTrader, TradeStation and eSignal. In addition, it’s commonly used for the ES, 6E, 6C, 6A and other currencies.
