How to Trade Pre-market: E-mini Scalping Signals

Although you could use the Trade Scalper software to trade 24 hours a day, that doesn’t mean you should do it! There are a number of great trades that occur in the early or evening periods, beyond what is considered standard trading hours. The first portion of this video covers one such signal, a long. After the close of that candle where the long signal was generated, we see price rise for three candles. The indicates a winning move.

The next signal that appeared was a Double Wick Short. A Double Wick is another type of signal that is produced by the Trade Scalper software. Price moved against the signal and then dropped right down via three consecutive red candles. You’ll see this trade unfold in real-time.

John Paul used eight contracts. He has Chart Trader configured to show his current profit or loss as it fluctuates. This particular trade’s goal/profit target was worth $1,000 before any commissions or fees. Fantastic, right? Such a short period of time. That’s what scalping is all about. If you were trading just one contract, that would have been $125. Still, if you can find multiple trades like this daily, they add up. The idea is to grow your account over time.

If you have three or four winners in your pocket for the day, it’s time to call it quits. Yes, let’s keep that money in the pocket, and hopefully saved up long-term rather than take yet another chance. There will be other days to trade. Look at the bigger picture: the week, the month, 90 days, six months, then a year. How was your performance? Were you following the rules correctly?

There are people who sleep at the casino’s hotel so they can maximize their gambling. There are also those people who are hardly awake at their slot machines for sixteen hours, sitting in unhealthy positions for too long, not nourishing their minds or bodies. A few hours a day should be the goal. Life is about living; and most of us would probably define living as something different than what happened on a chart for a given period of time.

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.

Big E-mini Winners This Historic Trading Day

The big S&P 500 reached new heights. As you might expect, that translated into big gains for the E-mini S&P 500. As such, we have a Long Atlas Line signal stating off the day. The steep angle means that we are in for a big ride up or possible one or more intersections. If there was an intersection followed by a signficant drop (did not happen), then we would have gone with short trades and seen any long trades were less likely due to the distance of price vs. the Atlas Line. Get it? That’s what makes the Atlas Line such a great predictive tool!

The big news of the day was that the S&P 500 surpassed the 4,000 level. This was a new record. There were plenty of Atlas Line Strength and Pullback signals on the way up. If that wasn’t enough, you could have applied the Trade Scalper. That’s what John Paul does at 3:50 in this video. Look at all those signals! Some traders were blind to the fact that the day was anticipated to be a up-trending day. Can you imagine trading in the dark, constantly second-guessing whether the market was to suddenly drop? That’s not a good way to trade. Rather, we want to be positive, optimistic, and have real expectations about anticipated moves.

It was not necessary to take every signal. In fact, trading too much or too often subjects you to unnecessary risk. John Paul often advises to go with the best signals. With purchase of his methods, he explains the exact rules for such conditions and how to filter. You can use multiple methods as well, as demonstrated here.

Will we be seeing more big bullish days ahead? This year and last have been two of the most interesting to trade. Many signs point to 2021 exceeding new highs on a regular basis. Are you ready to take advantage of these projected opportunities?

Are You Surprised By These Winning Trading Signals?

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.

What is Price Action and How Do You Trade It?

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.

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 Potentially Avoid Losses When Trading During News Events

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.

As pro traders, we prefer to always remain informed. That’s why we use the news indicator from DayTradeToWin.com. The indicator plugs right into your chart. You can see news events right in front of you. As time progresses throughout the days and weeks, upcoming news automatically displays. There is no need to visit a website. Of course, you still could, and DayTradeToWin also has a solution for that, offering a news page with two of the best day trading news sources available.

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.

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).

Finding Trends and Counter-trends Using Price Action Roadmap Software

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.

How to Forecast Price Action in 2021

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!
