3 to 4 Scalping Trades Per Day is All it Takes

Pre-market trading tends to be slower, so if you’re awake at that time and ready to go, be warned. We find that scalping is the best way to go after-hours or pre-market. The reason is that scalping goes for smaller profit targets, generally, which are par for the course in slow conditions. The video shows many Trade Scalper signals from about 2:30 a.m. US/Eastern time to about 9:30 a.m. From 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. US/Eastern or so is considered the normal trading day where one can expect normal conditions (with great diversity).

Once the market opens, you begin the day session. The signals that appear soon after the market opens, say, within the first 15 to 20 minutes, are often best avoided. Why? Because there’s a bunch of random, crazy activity that often occurs at market open. Wait until time has moved onward. In addition, look out for news events, as present additional periods of volatility in the morning.

At about 2:30 in the video, you’ll see the Trade Scalper working on the 1-minute chart for a real-time trade. John Paul from DayTradeToWin is in the market, going Long, in real-time, with eight contracts. Not everyone has the cash to trade with that many contracts or far more. That’s actually ideal. The reason is you want to work your way up even if you have a lot of risk capital. Start off practicing with free, real-time simulator data for the E-mini or Micro E-mini. From there, gauge your success. If good after a reasonable period of time, consider opening an account and trading one Micro E-mini contract. That way, you aren’t losing a ton of money while you gain experience. You could scale up there to multiple contracts and eventually move on to a single E-mini contract where each tick is worth $12.50.

So, what happened with this trade? The profit target was hit. The trade was worth $1,000 before any fees, commissions, etc. You could trail a stop in an attempt to “lock in” any profit target. There’s no need to take every single, either. Take the best ones according to the rules. There’s no need to trade 10+ times per day. Three or four scalping trades per day is good. Go enjoy the sunshine as John Paul says.

It Happened as Predicted: Big Sell-Off Jan. 4, 2021

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.
