What If You Traded Like This? Atlas Line + ATO 2

Here’s a look at the Atlas Line and ATO 2 in a live trading environment. The first signal for the E-mini S&P 500 (ES) that appears is an Atlas Line Long signal at the close of the 9:55 a.m. candle when the price was at 3094.5. This is a long entry because it is the second close above the Atlas Line (the dashed diagonal line below the price candles).

You can see how the price is plotting real-time, or “live” as we call it. We’re trusting the following candle or candles will surpass the profit target. The profit target depends on the ATR (Average True Range) utilizing a Period value of 4. At the time this trade was placed, the ATR value was around 2 points, so that’s the profit target we used. In other words, we let current market conditions dictate the amount of profit we seek. A less volatile market equals lower profit potential, so we inversely account for this as well.
