Some of Today's CPX Daytrades

The Counter Punch Xpress is an entry level version of the Counter Punch Trader. It is stripped down to just the setups. Of course the Owner’s Club is full of great training on how to use the setups along with time tested effective Tradeplans for specific markets.

Here’s a look at some of today’s trades using the basic CPX approach with some of our favorite, longest lasting tradeplans.

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.

Winning Tradeplans Lead to Winning Traders

February 8, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Winning Tradeplans make Winning Traders!

I talk a lot about the power of the tradeplan when it comes to ongoing success as a trader.  Ultimately, we want to be able to treat our trading as a business and be very businesslike with our approach.  To do that, we NEED an effective tradeplan.  What’s more, we also have to BELIEVE in the tradeplan in order to be able to stay with it.  If we can do that, we will experience in increase in the value of our trade accounts.

Today, yet again, this idea proved its merit as we traded our plan to a very profitable outcome on most of our favorite markets.

  • The Russell eMini was one and done, hitting its goals in exactly ONE minute; + 4.3 points with our T2 and Trailer.  All new Equity Highs for the life of the TRADEPLAN
  • Crude Oil Futures; Two and Done this morning and then our bonus session, the Crude Oil Inventory Report was One and Done.  The Inventory Report Tradeplan gave us + .49 (T2 and Trailer); + $490.  CL is one winning session away from hitting all time record profit levels again.  Power of the TRADEPLAN
  • EURUSD was one and done with a remarkable and perfect trade; T1 + 23 pips, T2 + 31 pips, T3 + 39 pips, Trailer + 24 pips

These are just a few examples. The big point of course is that if you are NOT trading with a well tested tradeplan that you have belief and confidence in, chances are you are still struggling with your trading and will continue to struggle until you finally do what is necessary to GET and TRADE a well tested tradeplan that YOU can believe in.  That’s the key to success!

Today’s EURUSD Trade was One and Done


Crude Oil Inventory Report gave us a nice One and Done trade, hitting our tradeplan goals with the first trade


TF hit Record Profit Levels today and also was One and Done today, in and out of its first trade of the day within ONE minute.  Imagine telling your friends and family that you had a one minute work day today!


You can Swing Trade with the CPT, too.  Here’s a Daily Chart of AAPL and you can see how CPT is hitting all the best moves, including this last surge up as AAPL tests its all time highs

Trading Goals Hit as Tradeplans Continue to Win Across the Board

January 30, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Today was a great start to the week as we hit our trade goals on every chart we trade in the traderoom.  I’ve had a number of requests from ‘non CPT’ traders who have been curious about our live traderoom.  I don’t usually do this but today I thought I would post the entire traderoom session recording here on this blog.  We cover a lot of material like we normally do but you will also see the trades happen live, tradeplans that we’ve been trading without any changes for over two straight years,


  • Crude Oil Futures; one and done; + .22 with two positions
  • TF; one and done; + 8.5 points with two positions
  • Soybean futures; one and one; + 12.25 points with two positions
  • YM; two and done; + 62 points with two positions
  • EURUSD; one and done; + 81 pips and still trailing
  • GBPJPY 4 hour swingtrade chart; Over + 200 pips with the current trade that just closed out during today’s session.  See it in the video
  • DAX Futures; one and done; + 63.5 points (Euro Session)

These are just the charts and trades we covered in the traderoom.  There are many other charts and tradeplans one can trade that did very well today; Gold, ES, NQ, etc.

Tradeplans that Consistently WIN are the KEYS to Ongoing Trading Success

January 18, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Ongoing success comes from sticking to a disciplined and proven tradeplan.

Our CPT Tradeplans consistently win.  We’ve shown that for over two years.  We haven’t changed much since then, after all, if it ‘ain’t broke — don’t fix it!’

Today was another day where every single chart and tradeplan we follow in the traderoom was a winner and all new equity highs were reached, yet again.   In fact, nearly everything hit its goals on the very first trade except the Russell eMini which hit its goals on the 2nd trade.That’s what making money as a trader is all about, right?  Best of all, there were over 50 CPT members in the traderoom, witnessing, trading and enjoying the success of our strategy.

per, two positions; T2 and Trailer

  • Crude Oil: + .36
  • TF: + 10.4 points
  • YM; + 50 points
  • Soybean Futures; + 8.75 points
  • GBPUSD 5 min chart; + 114 pips (we take 25% off at each of three targets and trail the rest, see below)
  • EURUSD 5 min chart; + 46 pips (same method as GBPUSD)
Today’s GBPUSD Trade, per our tradeplan, was one and done for + 114 pips


A Completely different way to use the CPT is to use this 10 minute chart with the IWM (Russell ETF).  Take one trade per day, win or lose.  Check out yesterday’s trade.  Looks just like any other CPT trade.

Trading Profits Soar! Exciting Time to be Trading with the Counter Punch Trader

January 12, 2017 — by Troy Noonan0

Trading profits soaring!  How does 22 in a row sound?  That is, 22 winning sessions in a row with our traderoom tradeplan for the Russell eMini.  Usually this plan is done with the first or second trade.   In fact, since December 8th, the last losing session we had trading the TF (Russell), we’ve hit our profitable trading goals with 3 trades or less — usually less.  The week ending December 8th was the first week that the TF changed its point value from $100 per point to $50 per point so we expected some difficulties as the markets digested the change.  Since then, it has been a parabolic rise in equity growth with 22 winning sessions in a row, including of course, today, with this trade:

Today, the TF was one and done with this trade.  Since the beginning of 2017, the TF is winning at 83.3%, with our 8 tick range bar tradeplan, like we do in the live traderoom.  Perhaps more importantly, it has won 22 sessions in a row dating back to Dec 8th!


It’s not all about the TF, though.  Just about everything is trading magnificently well with the CPT.  The price action is great, whether its going up or down and since CPT is 100% price action based, many tradeplans are enjoying big equity run ups and new record profit levels nearly every day.

Crude Oil Futures has just won its 19th session in a row and if you add to that our ‘6th session of the week,’ our Inventory Report Session, its won 23 sessions in a row.  Today it hit record profit levels again.  In fact, since the beginning of 2017, CL is at a 70% clip, but has a 100% winning session rate.  It hasn’t had a losing session since Dec 15th!

Soybean Futures just won its 5th session in a row and hit record equity high profit levels for the life of its tradeplan, using the 5 tick momentum bar.  Best of all, this tradeplan only requires ONE trade per day.  Talk about efficiency!  While the crowd is struggling with one of the most difficult markets to trade, the ES, Counter Punch Traders are doing it differently, finding the ‘golden eggs’ where most traders don’t know where to look.  Soybeans trades like the ES in that it also is $50 per point and $12.50 per tick.  The difference is, our one and done tradeplan continues to grow equity and is as straight forward as it gets when it comes to growing your equity with minimal effort.

Today’s one and done Soybean Futures trade hit record profit levels again. Today, target 2 grabbed + 4.25 points.


These are just a few examples but its NOT just all about futures.  Forex is trading and trading well.  Equity trades are ringing the register, too.  Check out this GBPUSD daytrade, currently still going, that put this market on top today, hitting its profit goals for another winning session:

GBPUSD hit its T1 for + 52 pips and is still going.  We like to take 25% off at each target and let the trailer exit the rest.


Check out this AAPL swingtrade chart.  With the CPT, you can daytrade and swingtrade, futures, forex and stocks.  It doesn’t matter.  It’s all about price action and because of how the CPT is designed, it self tunes to market conditions, bar after bar.

Year Ends of a Very High Note — Record Profits, Many Markets and Charts

December 30, 2016 — by Troy Noonan0

Strong gains across the board to end the year

This is a follow up to yesterday’s post.  The Russell eMini ended it’s session, one and done, hitting its goals with its first trade of the day, winning its 15th session in a row and finishing the year with all new record profit levels.  Can’t ask for more than that!


  • Crude Oil Futures win the last 16 of 18 Trades

Crude Oil Futures also ended with another winning session to end the year at new record profit levels.  It was a modest gain on a slow day, hitting two target ones and then stopping out at profit protection levels on the first two trades.  That had us taking what the market wanted to give us and quitting positive for the 12th session in a row, or 15th session in a row when including our extra Crude Oil Inventory Report Session which won again yesterday (see video in prior post).  Target 2 traders were up + 1.46, $1460 per contract and have won 16 of the last 18 trades.  That’s a great way to end the year!

Other Highlights to our last session of the year:

  • EURUSD continues to give us good trades during the US Session, going one and done again today for + 35 pips
  • GBPUSD also was one and done for its final session of the year, hitting all three of its targets and adding even more with a nice running trailer.





  • Soybean Futures ended on a high note today, too.  It was a slow starter but ultimately one its ‘one and done’ trade, winning the last 6 out of 7 sessions to end the year strong.
  • YM gave us a nice winner as well, finishing one and done per its ongoing tradeplan; + 21 points to T2
  • NQ was one and done today to end the year on a strong note as well.
  • Soybeans still going as of this post


  • YM


  • NQ


  • AAPL daily chart gave a nice swing trade Christmas dividend as well with this winner to end the year:


  • GBPJPY 4 hr Swing trade chart wins again, 14 of last 15 trades and record profit levels


The big message I’d like everyone to take away from these examples is that if you look closely, you’ll notice how ‘the same’ each chart looks.  We are using the same setups on all these charts, trading them the same way, following the same guidance and structure.  Notice how on all these very different markets, we are able to make efficient work of our tradeplans, typically finishing each session quickly and profitably.  Our philosophy is to grow our equity by being able to quit positive on MOST sessions while controlling our drawdowns. We treat our swing trading the same way using the great CPT setups and combining them with tradeplans that tell us when and how to trade each chart.

We are looking forward to a prosperous 2017.

Happy New Year!!
