Powered by The Intentional Trader

Let’s get started

This is a short guide to our trade setups. If you are new to the trading system or would like a refresher this page is a great one to bookmark!

Want to see some live trades take from the room? Of course you do. Checkout the video below!
 You may notice slightly different rules. After you have become consistent with the rules below you can start to tune them for even more setups.

RockStar

Our most powerful setup. Potential HFT manipulation + divergence. The RockStar trade setup is the most popular and frequent trade setup here.

SpeedTick

Potential HFT market manipulation, followed by a correction (pullback) from the movement.

First Touch (FT)

The first time price touches a majorline of support or resistance after the relative strengthnumber exceeds 120. Price must approach from a steep angle to qualify.

RicoDot

Very similar to SpeedTick but has Ricochet andPullBack Alert indicators on the same bar. Trades withSpeedTick conservative rules.

Individual Indicators

RockStar

The RockStar is a combination of our HUD (Heads-Up-Display) indicators that, when a confluence of positive conditions exist, will generate a signal to let the trader know that there is a confluence of events that might require his/her attention. Like any other indicator for NinjaTrader (or any other trading platform), this indicator does not tell the trader when to take a trade. It simply alerts the trader to a confluence of market events that could help the trader anticipate a change in the market.

SpeedTick

A trade entry trigger when other trade criterion has been met. Small white SpeedTick meets  the threshold requirements for HFT pullback trades.  Big Blue and Medium Blue SpeedTicks are a caution for  conservative traders indicating that there may be more  at work than an HFT market manipulation

NRS Zone

This is one of the qualifying indicators for the Naked Rockstar Setup. This channel lets us know when price is breaking out and has some good momentum. If a rockstar opens outside this channel then we don’t need a level of SUpport/Resistance behind the trade setup.

Overbought/Oversold

Magenta outline on candlestick indicates  an overbought condition using the RSI oscillator.  Cyan outline indicates an oversold condition.

First Touch Reset

The first  time price touches a major  line of support or resistance  after the relative strength  number exceeds 120. Price  musst approach from a steep  angle to qualify

Super Divergence

The  SuperD (or SuperDivergence) is the most  advanced divergence detector we’ve ever built. This indicator  calculates divergences over many oscillators (for example:  the MACD, The RSI, The Ultimate Oscillator) in real-time  through 1 single print on a chart. Gone are the days of  cluttered charts and confusing readings, with the SuperD, it is  possible to accurately see what oscillator(s) are diverging  without complexity.

Ricochet

Used for confluence for trade setups. When combined with a PullBack Alert, would qualify as a trade  entry trigger if all other trade entry criterion were met.


Learn more

MacDiver

Signals Divergence using MACD oscillator. Below the bar indicator indicates that we anticipate  price to go up. Above, price to go down. This indicator is currently used only  for confluence and  is not, by itself, a  trigger to enter a  trade.

Flash

Signals Divergence using RSI oscillator. Below the bar indicator indicates that we anticipate price to go up.  Above, price to go down. This indicator is currently used  only for confluence and is not, by itself, a trigger to  enter a trade.


Learn more

Pullback Alert

Indication from VSA (volume spread analysis) that a pullback is likely. This indicator is used  for confluence only. We do not have a trade entry that  is triggered with just a PullBack alert indicator. The  numbers on the dots distinguish the type of price action  happening inside the current bar.


Learn more

Velocity

Indicate a sudden price movement relative to previous bars. There are 3 threshold levels which  generate different user defined visual properties. In the  trade room, the threshold levels are set to white,  yellow, and green with white being level 1, yellow level  2, and green level 3.


Learn more

Mometer

Indicate a stronger price movement relative to  previous bars (lookback period). Strong price movement is  almost always followed by exhaustion and a pullback or  retracement. There are 4 threshold levels which generate different user defined visual properties. In the trade room, the threshold levels are set to range from Black for early momentum to light grey for extended momentum.
