Scalping the markets using second charts on the NinjaTrader platform

Scalping the markets using second charts on the NinjaTrader platform

In this video from the US day trading session we show you how to trade markets in a narrow range using the 15 seconds chart. This is one timeframe which is available on the NinjaTrader platform as well as for Tradestation. It is the perfect time chart to use when markets are trading in a narrow range and would otherwise require you to sit on the sidelines and wait for a trend to develop from the congestion. It's not for everyone as it involves quick fire trading which is automated with a hard stop loss. It is where Anna and I started our own trading careers twenty years ago trading FTSE 100 index futures through the LIFFE exchange which is sadly no more! Happy days! Now all electronic but a great way to trade if it suiys your https://youtu.be/TQ9j65GxF4o...

Day trading using volume price analysis

Day trading using volume price analysis

Trading using volume reveals the truth behind the price action whatever the instrument or timeframe. It is a universal approach that embraces every tactic and here we apply the methodology in live markets and focusing on the YM emini futures contract. Price is only half the story and it is volume which paints the complete picture revealing as it does when the market makers and insiders are buying or selling, or indeed when they are sitting in the sidelines and simply moving price https://youtu.be/gBfU6KPmN6I...

All eyes on the US dollar as the US election looms

All eyes on the US dollar as the US election looms

As the currency of first reserve and with the US election now on the horizon, the US dollar is likely to take centre stage for the next few weeks. This week alone there are eighteen speakers from the FED giving their own views and with the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this has certainly stirred up the contest for the White House. From a technical perspective, the US dollar has been in decline for some time and well off the highs of May at over 100. However, the congestion phase now building on the daily chart between 92 and 94 is developing into a potential platform for a strong reversal in due course and potential to return to this level once more, which will be damaging for risk assets such as US equities. https://youtu.be/yV4ARqhmvt8  ...

Why we have seen divergence in the US indices and more trading lessons using volume

Over the last few months, there has been a considerable divergence between the Nasdaq 100 and the two primary indices of the Dow Jones and the S&P 500.

Assessing risk and reward the correct way!

Assessing risk and reward the correct way!

Many traders talk of risk and reward and the fact they do not take a trade unless there is a 3 to 1 risk reward ratio or 2 to 1 - but how do they know, and does the market actually care what they need or want! There is a simple and logical way to assess the risk on each trade, and any potential reward by studying the chart and from there deciding whether to take the trade or not. The chart will reveal in multiple timeframes what is ahead and therefore likely to offer support or resistance, or where the market is likely to congest. Then and only then can you make a decision based on your reading of the chart. https://youtu.be/x-kqt_w8qUQ...

Brexit in focus once more for the British pound

Brexit in focus once more for the British pound

With Brexit once more in the headlines it's the British pound which is delivering some great forex trading opportunities across the pound complex and worries concerning a no deal surface once more and drive the currency lower on the daily timeframe. But remember, when a currency is driven in this way expect to see volatility and plenty of trap moves intraday which is where the volatility indicator steps in. And the news for the pound was made worse by the release of news concerning a vaccine trial which had run into problems. So not a happy time for the pound at present! https://youtu.be/s8mBkIEETOo...
