4 Game-Changing Rules Every Successful Trader Follows ?

Hello Traders! Today, I’m excited to share four essential rules for trading success. Whether you’re trading crypto, stocks, futures, Forex, or any other asset, these rules are fundamental. I’ll also show how the Roadmap software on TradingView charts, which is also available for NinjaTrader, can assist you in your trading journey.

Before we begin, please remember that trading is risky. Do not trade with funds you cannot afford to lose. Always be aware of the risks involved.

Rule 1: Price Action Trading

The first rule is price action trading. What is price action trading? Price action refers to the movement of a security’s price over time. This movement forms the basis for all technical analysis of stocks, commodities, or other assets. Essentially, price action trading involves analyzing these price movements to make informed trading decisions.

With the Roadmap software, we can identify specific zones—Zone A, Zone B, and so on—where support and resistance levels are significant. When the market enters these zones, we can decide whether the price action suggests a continuation or a reversal. This helps us pinpoint critical points where the market might not continue higher or lower, providing valuable insights for our trading strategy.

Rule 2: Filtering Trades Effectively

The second rule is filtering trades effectively. Many traders fail to filter their trades, which can significantly impact their success. Knowing when to stay out of the market is just as important as knowing when to enter. Filtering trades involves using different methodologies to confirm trading signals.

For instance, the Roadmap software helps us identify zones where we should avoid going long or short. These zones act as filters. If multiple methodologies—like the Trade Scalper, At The Open, and Atlas Line—all agree on a trade direction, it’s a strong signal to take that trade. However, if the methods give conflicting signals, it’s best to stay out of the market. This approach ensures we only take high-probability trades, improving our overall trading performance.

Rule 3: Using Exact Trade Entries

Using exact trade entries is the third rule. It’s crucial to have a precise entry price for your trades, whether you’re going long or short. Instead of impulsively entering the market, wait for the right conditions.

For example, when the market enters a zone on the Roadmap, we look for specific price action to determine our entry point. We might wait for two candles to close in our direction, solidifying the price action and giving us a precise entry price. This disciplined approach ensures we are not just jumping into the market based on a hunch but are entering with a clear strategy and purpose.

Rule 4: Importance of Patience in Trading

The fourth and final rule is the importance of patience. Patience is crucial in trading. It’s about waiting for the right opportunity and not forcing trades when conditions aren’t favorable.

When the market is in a zone, we must be patient and wait for it to either break through the zone or reverse direction. This waiting period can be challenging, but it’s essential to avoid making impulsive decisions. For instance, if the market breaks below a support zone, it might signal a short trade. Conversely, if it reverses and moves above the zone, it could be a long trade opportunity. By being patient, we ensure we only enter trades when conditions are optimal.


Following these four rules—price action trading, filtering trades effectively, using exact trade entries, and being patient—can significantly enhance your trading success. The Roadmap software on TradingView and NinjaTrader can be an invaluable tool in implementing these rules.
