Daytrader's Profit by Learning How the Market Moves
by Ralph Russell, Nasdaq Real-time Signals Trader

As traders, we seek information about the market that we can see on our charts and then we seek to capitalize on that information. One thing that many of us miss is how the market moves. Yes, we do not even notice such things in our quest for profits.

Our vision tunnels up when in a trade much like looking through the big end of a funnel and all we see is that small area at the end, as that is where the ticker or cursor that highlights the latest price is located. Our minds are quickly calculating as the price jumps up and down, like an adding machine in the hands of an auditor.

Have you noticed the market almost never moves in a single leg move, and that the markets always make at least three legs in a move? Many of us refer to this as an ABC move. It could be a 123 move. The Elliott label is unimportant. What is important is that we recognize that we have at least a three-legged movement coming.

If we know there are three legs to a move, we have great and useful information.

========= Daytrader's Tool Box - Mentor Updates
                     Online Lessons in Daytrading

Do you trade the E-mini Nasdaq? Ralph Russell, our Nasdaq Real-time Signals Trader, has written "Russell's Guide to Mini-Nasdaq Order Suggestions."

The latest addition to our Mentor Update Library, "Russell's Guide to Mini-Nasdaq Order Suggestions," is required reading if you plan to use our Real-time Signals for trading the E-mini Nasdaq. This update details how to use the signals to your own best advantage.

Depending on your trading skill, you'll use the Real-time Signals differently:

Novice traders will likely follow the signal suggestions very closely, concentrating on learning how to follow the market and letting Ralph's trade suggestions help create your account growth. More experienced traders are able to fine tune the signal suggestions, some trading more contracts, etc.

This Mentor Update is available to anyone (no free trial or subscription necessary) with several other available updates.

Our Free Trialer's Library are the Mentor Updates we make available to give you a taste of our great content. Subscribers have access to the entire library of back issues and also receive all new Mentor Updates as they are published.

Links to the List of Titles in the Mentor Update Libraries are on the left-hand side of the above page or directly at:

All new free trials to the Real-time Signals have access to both the
S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 Signals. You will also receive the Overnight Updates for both markets. Request your trial today. (We require at least 6 months between free trials).
