DayTradeToWin Reviews ABC Method Rules for Better Trading

Why would you want to trade futures in the afternoon when the morning is said to have the best opportunities? Because still more opportunities exist in the afternoon. Perhaps you were busy in the morning or sought to recover from a couple of trades that didn’t go so well. Revenge trading or any type of emotionally driven trading is discouraged. Rather, sticking to objective rules ensures that one can more easily measure the success of an approach over a given period.

The ABC Method was designed for afternoon trading. Multiple entry opportunities can be found in the afternoon before market close. However, some days there are simply no signals. Trending days tend to trigger ABC entry opportunities. That’s because the ABC is a breakout method. If price exceeds the prior period’s high and low via two closing candles, then expect a signal in the new period. That means only periods B and C yield entry opportunities. period A merely establishes the high and low for a possible entry in period B.

It’s important to remember the first two periods are 2.5 hours in duration. The A period begins at market open, 9:30 a.m. If this sounds like too much work, you may consider the ATO 2 method which includes the ABC Indicator. Another option is the 8-Week Mentorship Program. With the latter, all courses and software are included with Lifetime licenses.

If you want to see these signals live, sign up in one of the forms on the DayTradeToWin website. Every few weeks, an invitation is sent so that new people can compare their live charts with John Paul’s to see his methods are for real.

3+ Reasons Why a 2nd Opinion on Your Trades is Important

Here’s the latest DayTradeToWin video in which many trading signals are reviewed. First, we start with the Atlas Line trading software. As demonstrated about 2:00 into the video, the signal did not work out. That’s just a part of trading. Sometimes, additional signals the same day will set you back on the path to profit. Other times, you’ll hope to make profit the next day or thereafter. The idea is to have consistent wins over a specific period of time, which could be 30 days or longer.

If you had the ATO 2 and the Atlas Line or the Trade Scalper and Atlas Line, you could say to yourself, “I am only going to take signals from either system (or both systems) when both signals agree on the anticipated direction and the signals occur around the same time.” If you do just that, as demonstrated in the video, there can be great results. However, such results cannot be guaranteed – “can” means “possibly,” which is not as definite as “will.” The market will do what the market wants to do. Again, it’s a matter of cumulative wins outsizing cumulative losses per period of observation.

Adding a third method to the chart to get a third opinion can also be helpful. That’s what happens here when the Trade Scalper is added. Notice how there are multiple Short signals for all three systems that “follow” the price movement down? That was a great area of opportunity for winners. The following Strength (S) and Pullback (P) signals represent additional opportunities from the Atlas Line, however, some of those signals did not work out. Do you notice any additional signals from the ATO 2 or Atlas Line around that time? No. Well, that’s exactly demonstrating why it’s important to use multiple systems!

4 Chart Reviews From DayTradeToWin: Atlas Line, Trade Scalper, ATO 2, Roadmap

We have found four recent chart images to share with you! This first chart contains the ATO 2 and Atlas Line software from DayTradeToWin. When multiple systems confirm the same direction, we say, “All the better!” Such a confirmation occurs at two separate moments on this chart. The first is when the ATO 2 Short signal “agrees” with the prior Atlas Line Short signal. If you were skeptical about that first short trade, the ATO 2 Short served as additional confirmation that price was expected to move further South. And that’s exactly what happened!

Next, we have an even clearer indication of confirmation. The Short signals are practically on top of one another. Keep in mind, this happened while both indicators use entirely different rules for drawing the entry signals. The dashed arrows were added later on in an image editor in order to illustrate the approximate point of profit target for these trades, depending on the desired risk level. The ATR (Average True Range) is used as the primary tool for discerning the risk (profit target vs. stop loss, pretty much).

The next two charts spell things our directly on the charts themselves. The addition, here, is the Roadmap, a powerful tool that’s typically offered only in DayTradeToWin’s 8-Week Mentorship Program. The Roadmap is recognized by the Zone lines. These Zones are barriers where price may bounce or quickly pass through depending on certain factors.

Back to the Atlas Line and ATO 2 – the same sort of thing happens as in the chart above – the ATO 2 and Atlas Line signals occur almost at the same time and price soon travels in the anticipated direction. Later, plenty of Strength signals occur. These are optional trades that are typically for smaller amounts. They’re almost like scalping.

Let’s take a look at just one trading method, the Trade Scalper from DayTradeToWin, and see how many signals it can produce within a couple hours. I don’t know about you, but I see about eight different signals and most of them were winners. I see a Long signal followed by upward (bullish) price activity again and again. The Trade Scalper is favorite among traders because of how short in duration each trade is (less time = less exposure = less risk) and regular action. It’s important to like the style of trading that you do, because if it’s not enjoyable, do you want to be doing it every day?

Fortunately, the general feedback and reviews shared on the DayTradeToWin website has many great things to say about all the trading methods and John Paul. The methods are highly rated with the posts going back years. In the trading industry, it can be challenging to distinguish quality from junk. One way to get a sense of quality is to go back in time, whether on the website, YouTube, etc. and look at the performance. DayTradeToWin offers many years of testimonials.

Should You Take an Online Day Trading Course or Class?

“Is this a good trade? Should I enter here? Should I exit here? Am I risking too much or too little?”

These are questions you shouldn’t be asking yourself after you’ve been trading for some time. It’s normal to have these questions when you’re starting out, trying to figure out if you’re using your trading software correctly and applying a technique properly.

But if you are just guessing your way through trading or “hunch trading” as some may call it, well, that can be a problem long-term. So, what’s the solution? Learn from someone who has been a successful trader for years. Hopefully, that person is willing and able to relay all techniques and understanding. Not everyone is a good teacher. Some very rich traders are poor teachers. And of course, some great teachers are poor traders! This is why there may be just a handful of people with the right knowledge and educational ability to teach you how to day trade.

John Paul from DayTradeToWin is such a teacher. He has been teaching people how to day trade for many years. In fact, he didn’t even consider becoming a teacher. He was selling one or two trading methods online, then one of his clients asked him basically, “Hey, do you have anything else you could teach me?” And unbeknownst to John Paul at the time, this became the start of what is now the 8-Week Mentorship Program. Interesting how things in life happen like that, huh?

If you’ve never heard of the Mentorship Program, the above video will run through a number of the methods that are taught. Remember, it’s eight weeks in duration. Class is twice a week. You get all courses and software with Lifetime licenses. Classes are recording so you can watch them later online. It’s the complete package; a treasure trove of trading knowledge being shared with you by a trading expert who can actually teach! Note that John Paul is currently only available for the Individual, on-on-one version of Mentorship. There is another very qualified instructor who teaches the Group class.

3 Price Action Trading Systems From DayTradeToWin

Are you just using one trading system? Sure, that can work depending on how reliable the signals are. However, for some traders, when they have significant money on the line, they like to get a second “opinion” from another trading system. DayTradeToWin’s John Paul often advises this approach, as demonstrated in his latest video. He’s showing a Trade Scalper scalping signal “confirmed” by an ATO 2 short signal. Both system are confirming the same anticipated market direction around the same time. Sure enough, the market drops soon after. Nice!

Get all three price action day trading systems here.

The ATO-C is the “Chaser” trade. It’s an optional follow-up signal you can use to potentially find another win or help recover from an earlier loss. Of course, as with any trade or system, there is a potential for loss, so be careful and read all disclaimers.

Later on, there was a third method applied. That’s the Atlas Line and it, too, gave a short/sell signal. While price remains below the blue dashed line (the Atlas Line), the idea is to go only with short trades. Can you see why the Atlas Line is one of the best day trading methods offered by DayTradeToWin in terms of filtering, confirming, and generating signals? It looks at the projected “big picture” for the whole trading day; not just the next 20 minutes. The line itself stays in a constant direction. At a given moment, you can see how far away price is.

Those at DayTradeToWin believe it is less likely for the market to move 10 points in a moment than it is one point, so the same theory can be applied to risk management in terms of the profit target, stop loss, and general trading considering the distance of the Atlas Line compared to the real-time price value.

How to Use Price Action to Identify E-mini Trends

One of the biggest ways to “win” in day trading markets is to correctly capitalize on trending days. If you are lucky and confident, you can place a trade before the trend takes off, then ride the trend up or down and get out at a big profit. For this, you have to:

  • Enter early at the right time
  • Be correct regarding the direction (i.e. up or down, long or short, buy or sell)
  • Have a stop loss large enough so that regular price fluctuations won’t hit it and cause a premature exit (and loss)
  • Have a profit target large enough for the trend to eventually hit that and cause significant profit
  • Get out at the right time

Of course, there is much that can go wrong. For instance, you can buy instead of sell, anticipating the market to turn around yet you keep getting deeper into loss territory to a point where you wondered why you had a trading account to begin with. Hopefully, that never happens to you and you always trade with money set aside for high risk trading.

There are some trading systems out there that are meant to be traded only on trending days. But it is easy to think a day is trending if the market opens and goes up consistently for 20 consecutive minutes. Does that mean it will continue to do so into the early afternoon? There’s no guarantee. Is the move over? Could be. There’s no guarantee. The market can reverse at any moment. This is a reality of trading and something you have to be comfortable with. As a trader, you have to understand that responsibly and reasonably dealing with loss is a part of the “job.”

This is why hedge funds and big organizations use trading algorithms. Sure, there is win potential associated with execution speed, but some of these algorithms undoubtedly incorporate some sort of predictive qualities. Yes, companies that have millions of dollars are trying to predict the market just like you. It is true that some outright manipulate it, but that’s another discussion altogether.

So, if these companies have invested big bucks in predicting the market, who can say that individual traders cannot have any success with predicting the markets? This is why you see so many trading systems that exist. Yes, some will be more successful than others. Some will do better on trending days than others. Some will easily get “confused” in choppy conditions.

Hopefully, the video above has helped you understand how DayTradeToWin approaches trending markets, especially the E-mini S&P. The Atlas Line, ATO 2 and Trade Scalper can be used as predictive tools (though there is no guarantee they will be correct).

What’s the Best Price Action Trading Strategy?

Becoming a successful trader is about testing different strategies and figuring out what works best for you. So many books and courses are out there that promise huge profits. The truth is, trading is a high-risk activity, even for seasoned pros. That’s why you should only trade with money you have set aside for this type of investing. Our main approach focuses on price action. Price action is all about letting price movement be the lead indicator instead of some complicated analysis or lagging Bollinger Band system.

Day Trade to Win uses price action as a primary driver of decision making. In a given moment, a trader has to interpret multiple values. Should I stay in this trade? Should I get out early at a smaller profit, a loss, or breakeven? Is there a trade present? Does my other trading method confirm the direction of this trading method? How many contracts should I put on this trade? If I lose this trade, should I attempt to place another or call it a day? These are all questions that run through the minds of intraday futures traders.

Having objective rules simplifies the decision-making process. You have to make the right decision. Having a retail trading robot tweaked to how you, as a human trader, would respond, is probably not going to happen. Also, you may not know anyone who will let you in the door to be part of their high-frequency trading system within the CME building. You’ve got to figure out what’s in your control and what you can rely on. That’s why price action is preferred. Have a plan through a day trading course like those offered at DayTradeToWin.com.
