How Do You Day Trade Under Volatile Conditions?
As experienced traders know, markets can become too volatile to trade. Conversely, markets can be too slow and have no direction. We like when markets have some direction, as this allows profit target to be reached. The thing is, you need a reliable trading system. In this video, the Atlas Line trading software is used to trade the MES (Micro E-mini).
Want to see a full day’s worth of price action signals? Jump to 3:27 in the video. In addition to the regular Long and Short signals, the Atlas Line produces Strength (S) and Pullback (P) signals. These present other opportunities. When the markets are volatile, you may want to avoid these smaller signals and use the main signals instead. The Atlas Line itself is the diagonal, dashed line on the chart. It begins plotting early in the day and continues to extend throughout. When price closes twice above or below the line, a Long or Short signal will appear. This is when you use your SuperDOM or Chart Trader to place a trade. The full rules are explained in the training video you get with purchase as well as a live training session.
