Want a review of the DayTradeToWin Trade Scalper, Atlas Line or other signals? Watch this video to see real-time conditions. This webinar was recorded live. There was no filtering of signals. The signals on John Paul’s charts are the same as you would see them if you used the same configuration. The main focus is the Trade Scalper and profit-taking goals.
First, John Paul goes over his approach to risk management. He finds using the ATR (Average True Range) with a period value of four to be an accurate indicator of what price may do next. If you’re using fixed values, forget it. You’re eventually going to risk too much or too little going for that potential winner. It’s better to be adaptable and reasonable.
If you fast-forward to about 23:30, you’ll see how the morning started with an excellent Long/buy followed by an another excellent Short/sell. It’s quite possible that some people from the live room took advantage of those live “giveaway” signals and walked away with a profit! You can have the Trade Scalper signals running on your charts every day.
Right after the 23:00 point, John Paul explains the ABC method and gives an example of how it plotted recently. The video concludes with some discussion of order types and a review of price drop that occurred after the short signal.
Simply put, price action is price movement. If you look at charts, then that price movement will appear as candles (as seen in the video below), lines, or some other visual means. Price action requires two things: value of a market, such as a stock, commodity, future, currency, etc. The second thing is for time to pass. If time was at a standstill, there wouldn’t be any movement. Well, maybe some physics experts can disagree, but we’re talking about conventional day trading, here.
Moving on, we see how price action forms candles over time. Some believe these candles tell a story about where price has been and may indicate where it will go in the future. Do you believe that? If you can “read” price action, some say you can tell where price will go next. And if you can accurately predict where price goes next with better than average consistency, you may be a profitable trader.
This concept is what DayTradeToWin is all about: recognizing specific setups, or price action conditions or patterns, then capitalizing on them using clear rules. John Paul, founder of DayTradeToWin, says he’s been doing this for well over a decade and wants to teach you those same, objective trading rules so you don’t waste precious time and money playing guessing games in the markets.
Who doesn’t like a potential winning shortcut, right? Indeed, he offers a few different courses: ATO 2, Trade Scalper, Atlas Line, and an eight-week, full-package Mentorship Program wherein you receive and learn everything. Want to learn something for free right now? Watch the video above. You’ll learn the free ABC technique straight from John Paul. Does it work? Test if for yourself via a real-time simulated account day after day. Keep track of profit and loss. Let price action prove to you the results.
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!
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.
Are spontaneous news events causing you big losses? Do you even know if that’s the reason for your day trading losses? It could well be. Scheduled financial news is typically released multiple times per week. When the medium or high-impact events occur, volatility can suddenly increase, causing a shift in the market in opposition to your profit target.
In addition, DayTradeToWin teaches a free news trading method you can learn and apply today. You’ll learn it by watching the video above. John Paul discusses the psychology of those who trade news events and common pitfalls. There’s a pop, people and systems jump in late, the market begins to go sideways, positions get reversed, and then there’s a significant move in the opposite direction. See the full, free trading strategy for 2021.
The video shows the Trade Scalper scalping signals for the day. He says that if you look at the winning percentages, you’ll be ahead of the game if you have a plan and know why you’re making every move. There are two ways to get the Trade Scalper: purchase it standalone or get it with the full eight-week Mentorship Program. Both options are covered on the DayTradeToWin courses page.
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).
Do you know what the market is going to do next? Wish you had a guide to avoid those “bumpy” movements? That’s why DayTradeToWin.com created the Roadmap trading method/software. There’s one big thing most day traders want all the time. That’s a clear direction on where price is expected to go and price levels where price is expected to change.
The Roadmap provides this information on the chart in the forms of both signals and “zone lines” The zone lines identify points where the buying and selling is expected to cease or change in some way, so at these points, you may see price reversals or strong continuation up or down through, depending on the type of zone. This is why you can also find entry opportunities as price moves from zone to zone. Indeed, the Roadmap is a truly versatile trading indicator.
In this video, you can see how one of the zone lines served as a visual indicator for the upper boundary of where price is traded. It is as though the Roadmap “knew” ahead of time of a certain limit. Looking at these various zone lines on the chart, you will see again and again many such coincidences.
John Paul from DayTradeToWin.com explains this trading method in further detail. So how does one get the Roadmap? You have to enroll in the eight-week Mentorship Program. The Roadmap is one of the key methods in Mentorship. When you combine it with the Atlas Line, you esentially have 2x filter systems with 2x signals. Then when you combine it with the Trade Scalper and other systems, you have a full trading plan no matter what the day throws your way.
Do you want to learn how to predict where price may go in 2021? Look no further. We will teach you a full trading method for free in this video. Historically, John Paul says this technique has been 90% accurate. You can see for yourself in your charting platform of choice. Once you learn the technique, go back multiple years and see if the predictions came true.
This price action technique is called the January Effect, right now, we’re at the end of January, 2021. It won’t be long before we have 100% confirmation on whether the January Effect will apply to 2021. If it does, then we can say 2021 will be an “up year.” In an up year, we can identify retracement opportunities, where price begins to “come back up” to a 50% level as measured from the previous high and previous low.
Once that 50% level is exceeded in a certain way, that’s an entry opportunity. Typically, many of these 50% retracement opportunities occur within the year. In fact, it is possible to take advantage of bearish movement intraday. That’s good because many traders are not equipped to hold positions overnight and for days on end. Intraday means you can be in and out of a position the same day. This is what the DayTradeToWin trading methods mainly look for, as taught in the 8-Week Mentorship, Atlas Line, Trade Scalper, ATO 2 and many other techniques.
By all means, please watch the video to get a better understanding of how it all works. What we’re looking at right now is what the closing price of the E-mini S&P 500 will be at the end of January. We’ll have to be in February to make that determination. January 31 happens to be a Sunday, and the markets are open Sunday evening US/Eastern time. It is doubtful that price will make a huge drop on what is often observed as restful or recreational day. By Feb. 1, 2021, price has to be at 3653.25 or above for 2021 to be an up year. Currently, price is about 200 points above that, so that would be quite the market drop in a week or so.
This is just one method to forecast the market. For traders who do not have many thousands of dollars, you can use the Atlas Line and other tools as intraday forecasters. A forecast is a forecast; there are no guarantees price will do what is predicted. It’s almost like the weather; at least once, I am sure most of us have experienced rain on a day that was forecasted to be clear and vice versa. Hopefully this free trading method brightened up your day!
Remember that recent post where John Paul from DayTradeToWin.com predicted a big sell-off would occur in early January, 2021? Well, it happened! As shown in this video, you will see how much price fell. One headline says the Dow dropped over 500 points. That is significant. How did John Paul know this? Years of analyzing and trading the markets. This is one of the reasons why he is sought as a pro trading coach via the 8-Week Mentorship Program.
This may not be the only big sell-off in January. We have vaccines rolling out, alleged shortages, possibly new and more communicable viral strains, a pending presidential power transfer, pardons, and all sorts of other dramas occurring. In prior times, some of today’s the daily headlines would have been cover stories for weeks. What times these are! And what markets these are! That it why it is so important you have a plan for day trading.
In the above video, John Paul shares his approach to trading the big sell-off. A sell-off can be a single or multi-day event. In either case, it is possible to use a day trading system such as the Trade Scalper to find potential winning moves. The Trade Scalper works best with a 1-Minute chart. Signals appear according to price action. If price movement, over a given period of time behaves in a certain pattern, then a signal will appear. That signal may be long (buy) or short (sell). It is then up to you to place the trade according to the rules that you are taught. The technique is fully explained in the materials provided after purchase.
DayTradeToWin.com teaches how to use the ATR (Average True Range) to gauge recent market conditions and adjust the profit target and stop loss (essentially, reward and risk factors) according to what is potentially possible for the given moment. John Paul believes this allows for more realistic, safer trading.
He’s been offering his price action methods and occasional public market analysis videos for over 10 years. Very few, if any trading business, has hundreds of videos showing their methods working over such a long period of time.
Within the last month, a couple of predictions have emerged regarding how they market will be in early 2021. John Paul, founder of DayTradeToWin.com has said that he expects a big sell-off to occur in early January 2021. Below, you will find two more videos mentioning this prediction.
What is a sell-off? It’s a sustained period of bearish activity. In other words, a “great fall” in the markets. It’s not exactly a crash. A crash implies less control (i.e. a disastrous free-fall), whereas a sell-off is more of a series of thoughtful actions or consequences via controlled market mechanisms, trading, or business strategy.
John Paul says it is possible for regular “intraday” traders to capitalize on the anticipated sell-off, providing they have the right signals and trading systems. He points to the DayTradeToWin Atlas Line and Trade Scalper software specifically for finding short (sell) trades during a sell-off. Recognizing a sell-off can add an additional level of confirmation. And as a trader, are you not always looking for an extra indicator of confidence?
In the December 31, 2020 trading video above, you can see how the Atlas Line helps confirm anticipated price direction and can lead to profitable trades. Though there is inherent risk in trading and hypothetical performance is not indicative of future results, you can get a sense of how the signals appear to inform traders of a potential favorable condition in the near future. For instance, in the thumbnail image, you can see how there is an Atlas Line Long (buy) signal. Price continue moving up afterward. This should have led to a reasonable profit target being hit, thus a profit.
Normally, trading New Year’s Eve and Christmas Eve is best avoided. These are times to spend with family and friends. And if you must trade, because the big players tend to be away, there may be unusually slow periods. When these slow periods occur, the market can suddenly chop back and forth without any clear direction. This makes it extra difficult to trade. Fortunately, trading systems such as the Atlas Line and Trade Scalper can add “clarity.”
If we go further back in time, we see another video where John Paul predicts a January 2021 sell-off. What is your opinion? Do you think it will occur? There may be many headlines as we switch from one U.S. president who has been quite controversial to another, who also is involved in some controversy. We’re living at an unusual time where the world is trying to mitigate a contagion. This has set up a number of complexities at a time when the greatest number of people on earth exist, where all sorts of organizations, companies, and governments want to prosper, which can be disadvantageous to various populations, some of which do not have the means to grasp any portion of the picture. Also, there is the mindset of going into a new year and expecting change. Maybe that will happen. So when it comes to the markets, we have so much reason to expect some turbulence.
Are you ready for the anticipated early January 2021 sell-off? John Paul, founder of DayTradeToWin, recently posted a prediction that a significant amount of bearish activity is expected with the E-mini S&P. The video below explains further. Using the DayTradeToWin.com indicators (ATO 2, Trade Scalper, Atlas Line, etc.), you should be able to find intraday selling opportunities during the expected sell-off week or two. For example, the Atlas Line can help determine if the day is expected to be a “down day”. If so, look for short signals on your other systems, such as the Trade Scalper. By all means, let a few days provide to you that you are seeing the sell-off.
Does this mean that 2021 will be a down year overall? Absolutely not. This prediction is to be fulfilled by another method John Paul teaches publicly, the January Effect. The January Effect for 2021 will be known February 1, 2021 after the full month of January has plotted on the chart. You see, if January 2021 closes higher than it opened, we can also expect the year to mimic this pattern. Therefore, the January Effect says, December 2021 will also close higher.
As to the causes of the sell-off to possibly come: hypothetical COVID-19 waves or mutant strains, new tax laws/policy, outgoing and incoming U.S. president actions, unprecedented Q4 2020 retail performance numbers, etc. There are many reasons while price could drop and continue to do so for days. If the January Effect is active for 2020, then yes, it is possible that the recovery of the market could occur through February, but John Paul believes the drop could be rather short with January 2021 reaching new highs by the end of the month.
Not every trader can afford to swing trade. Swing trading is often considered holding a position overnight or multiple days. There is increased risk in doing so. But often with increased risk comes the potential of increased reward. If you have a modest account size, looking for intraday shorts may be your best bet.
