Learn it Once — Use it for a Lifetime

February 23, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

The CPT is designed so that a trader can learn it once and then use it forever.  It is super versatile and can be effective on many different markets, charts, timeframes, styles of trading, etc.

Today we used the same strategy and approach (as we always do) to not only daytrade our favorite futures markets at the start of the session, but then to also take our favorite specialty trade after the Crude Oil Inventory Report.  See below for the examples.  I have also shown you some other trades from today on a variety of different charts and markets; forex, ETFs, Swing trade charts, 10 minute charts, and custom renko charts.  Learn it once, use it for a lifetime.

We’re running a promotion on the CPT.  To find out more, please visit our presentation video here.

My favorite trade of the week, the Crude Oil Inventory Report, hit its goals with the very first trade and was one and done within 2 minutes



Earlier in the session, our typical morning Crude Oil tradeplan was also one and done. for a perfect scalp trade and new equity highs for the lifetime of the tradeplan



My other favorite market to trade, the Russell eMini also hit its goals with the very first trade and was one and done with this perfect target trade — in and out in ONE minute



This GBPUSD 5 minute chart is traded in the live traderoom (as are the above charts).  Today it finished with its goals in two trades.



We’ve been getting a lot of requests for more swing trade examples.  CPT is great for swing trading.  Commodity ETFs tend to trend very well.  This Silver ETF trades at a very low price with high volume, low cost options and has won 70% of its trades over the past 10 years.



This 10 minute chart of the Russell ETF, the IWM, shows the versatility of the CPT.  We have traders using this chart to daytrade weekly options for great leverage, controlled risk, simplicity and consistent performance.



To further show the versatility of the CPT, some traders are using these custom renko charts with the SPY to also daytrade weekly options.  These charts also work great with futures and forex.


There’s never been a better time to get involved with one of the most effective and profitable trading systems we have ever used.  The markets are on fire with no end in sight. Learn the CPT once, and use it for a lifetime!

DAX Futures and Other Great Trading Markets

February 14, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

We haven’t talked about DAX Futures.  Today it hit its goals with the very first trade, hitting all three target levels.  It was as straight forward as it gets.  Notice the structure on the chart, the entire trade perfectly laid out with all the information one needs to place a trade.  This is a tradeplan that has been going the same way for over two straight years.

DAX Futures Gained + 19 points at €25 Euros per point today, hitting its goals with its very first trade today


Since the US Election, markets have been providing great price action and our proven tradeplans have been producing many ‘One and Done’ sessions where are profit goals have been hit with the very first trade.  Some sessions take a few more trades to hit our goals but most importantly, we can consistently quit our daily trading with more equity than we started, which is how we grow our accounts and hit our financial goals.  Here’s a look at some more trades from today’s session.  Notice how they all pretty much look the same, work the same, utilize the same techniques, etc.  That’s because CPT is dynamic and adjusts to the chart and instrument being traded.

The TF hit its goals with the very first trade today


The GBPUSD 5 minute chart hit its goals with the very first trade today


CL hit its goals with the very first trade today


EURUSD 5 minute chart hit its goals with the very first trade today


Soybean futures hit its goals with the very first trade today


We started following a new YM Momentum Rangebar Chart in the traderoom which has been performing great.  Today it hit its goals with the very first trade with a perfect target


In fact, check out what this very chart produced the 2nd day we watched it.  It also hit its goals (and THEN some) with its very first trade for a one and done session


Ever trade Heating Oil Futures?  It’s very dynamic and produces great trades due to its volatility.  Today it hit its goals with the very first trade and was one and done.  Heating oil trades at $4.20 per tick and could be a great choice for smaller trade accounts.


CPT works equally as well on swingtrade charts as well.  Today in the traderoom, we watched as AAPL hit its Target 3 in live time.  Notice all the trades leading up to its current run at its all time record high price level


This 4 hour Forex Swingtrade chart has won 88% of its trades over the past SIX years.  Best of all, we only look at two bars per day for setups so that this timeframe can be manageable with a normal lifestyle.  Check out the current trade that just set up 30 minutes prior to writing this post.


Be sure to register for one of our upcoming Counter Punch Trader webinars as the CPT is going on SALE this month.
