Trading Signals for NinjaTrader – Real-time Atlas Line

Here’s a real-time Atlas Line trade placed by John Paul. With automatic trading signals, there’s no guesswork. The profit target and stop loss values are always based on the ATR (Average True Range).

If there’s a closing price on the opposite side, If the target is not hit, John Paul exits the market within a certain amount of time.

If price happens to close on the opposite side of the Atlas Line, then you can get out immediately according to the prove-it stop. What if neither of these conditions happen and price suddenly and strongly goes against your trade?
