As a trader, you’ve probably looked at many indicators, automated systems executed by brokerages and mathematical formulas. If you don’t have the time to actually watch charts and place trades, an automated system might be your only bet. Then again, why would you trade futures unless the brokerage could provide sufficient proof of profits? It’s always better to be in charge of your own trades – to control your profit targets and stop losses. The Atlas Line from Day Trade to Win bridges the gap between the world of somewhat tedious, manual trading and the convenience of automation. The Atlas Line is software that provides exact entries, either long or short at opportune times when price is most likely to either rise or fall in the specified direction. You can add an alert sound when an entry is plotted, so you can put down the newspaper from the other room, run to your computer, and place a trade. How do the stops work? Easy enough – you’ll learn exactly where to place them by attending the live training program that’s included with purchase. Additionally, you’ll learn how to place the proprietary Strength and Pullback trades.
