TTM DAY TRADING INDICATORS
What is the TTM Confirmation indicator and how does it work?
The TTM Confirmation comes as part of the 5 indicator package. To use the indicator you look for 2 opposing TTMs as a confirmation to enter or exit. So if you have a red TTM going and you are short, stay short until you get two blue TTMs in the opposing direction.
If I purchase the eSignal indicators but later decide to switch to TradeStation indicators or vice versa do I have to pay for another set of trading indicators?
The indicator purchase is a one time fee. Once you purchase the indicators they are yours so if you decide to switch from eSignal to Trade Station or vice versa we would honor the original purchase and swap them for you free of cost. This does not apply to transfers for any other platform however we can make most transfers by purchasing the "Indicator Converter" found on the indicator sales page. Please note the converter does not apply to Think Or Swim Indicator's.
What are the fixes for the Scalper indicator mentioned in the day trading book "Mastering the Trade" that are not added in?
The link above includes a screen shot that demonstrates how the Scalper Alert works. In the book John talked about how this typically happens after 3 higher highs or 3 higher lows but that is not completely accurate as the indicator has a filter. The paint bars are not related to consecutive higher or lower closes but rather pivot highs and pivot lows. The Trigger bar is the first bar that has a higher low than the previous bar. The next bar that closes above the high of this trigger bar paints this previous low bar which now becomes the swing low and the beginning of a new up swing. We hope this clarifies the workings of this indicator.

I just signed up for the free day trading video newsletter (the pop-up window that comes up when you open the home page). How is this free day trading newsletter different from the John's Newsletter that has a monthly fee?
