"One of the advantages of being disorderly when you trade is that you are constantly making exciting discoveries." Master Trader Joe Ross
Let's Learn the Art of Trading Joe Ross' Way!
Chart Scan with Commentary: Charts Follow a Law - Part 1
As I sat down to write this issue of Chart Scan, received a Skype call from one of my most dedicated students. He mentioned that a trading friend of his was having trading troubles. My student gave the problematic trader a copy of "Trading is a Business" to read. The troubled trader read through a few chapters of the book and then gave it back with the comment that the book was of no value because it was outdated. The charts in the book were not the way trading is done today with electronic markets.
He said this in reference to the charts that are in the book. My student tried to explain to him that the charts are essentially the same today as they were 100 years ago. The patterns we see today are based on the same human emotions that have always been in the markets and always will be.
Even if all the markets were traded all of the time by robots, the patterns of the Law of Charts will be there. Why? Because the robots will have been programmed by human beings to react in the same way as humans react now, in the past, and forever. Charts will forever form 1-2-3s, corrections forming Ross Hooks, trends, swings and consolidations of one sort or another. The only thing that really changes is the way in which those patterns are managed.
Do you want proof that a chart is a chart and it follows the Law of Charts?
Take a look at the chart below, I'll identify it next week:
It saddens me to realize how dense people can be when they enter the art of trading.

This is good advice outside of Trading as well.
"Have you ever had a bad day and wanted to stand aside until the feeling passed? Sometimes it is a good idea. It may be necessary to take a break, relax, contemplate, and refocus on the task at hand. The winning trader trades freely and effortlessly and it is vital to trade with such a mindset. Traders are similar to star athletes who perform at their best, or musicians who are virtuosos. What these people have in common is that they can focus their attention on the task at hand; inadequacies, conflicts, or...read more.

Trading Article: Is there Room for Hope in Trading?
In trading, hopelessness is not brought about by the situation, but rather by your interpretation of the situation. How you explain the cause of a bad situation accounts for how you cope with it. If you think, "I've always been incompetent and this is just another one of those times that proves how incompetent I've always been," you will tend to view the situation as hopeless and just want to give up. But, if you think...read more.

Ambush Traders Again in a Gold-Rush: Catching Reversals in the Gold Market
One of the top markets over the last couple of months for Ambush Traders has been the gold market. Whether it's the Gold Future, Micro-Future, or XAU/USD forex pair, Ambush Traders are in a crazy gold rush!
Here are the results of these trades, trading only one Gold Future (GC) contract:
Yup, that's almost $20k profits with almost no drawdowns in between within just a couple of months! Looking at the statistics you can see that we got a profit factor of over 3 and the maximum drawdown was just about 20% of the profit!
Now the Gold Future is a large contract and not suitable for small accounts. But you can do these trades also in the E-Micro Gold which is just 1/10 the size or the XAU/USD forex pair.
That's what makes Ambush Signals so great, it works with any account size offering three subscription models depending on your goals.
Notice that all of these are actually day trades, even though they're based on end-of-day trading decisions. Ambush is exactly that, an easy way to day trade not for a few tiny ticks with a lot of stress but placing your trades once a day, walk away, and go for the big intraday moves!
Don't miss the next Gold trade and join Ambush Signals today!
The Ambush Trading System was created in 2007 by Marco Mayer. Since then it proved itself in the markets for over a decade and did so with exceptional results. It's the only trading system we're aware of that is still going strong after so many years. While Ambush is a day trading system, meaning you will always enter and exit on the same trading day - you don't have to sit in front of your trading screen. You simply place your entry orders when the trading session starts and come back at the close!

Even though Master Trader Joe Ross passed away September 7, 2021, his trading knowledge of over 60 years will carry a trading legacy and will live on. As you learn about Joe Ross and understand what he was trying to teach his students, you will find that within his writings, he had a very special gift. Most importantly, it was his students that kept him striving to provide comprehendable trading material to actually teach traders and become independent, to rely on anyone, but themselves.
Joe Ross has been trading and investing since his first trade at the age of 14, and is a well known Master Trader and Investor. He was able to survive all the up and downs of the markets because of his adaptable trading style, using a low-risk approach that produces consistent profits.
Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of "The Law of Charts™" and the "Traders Trick Entry™." Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80's caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach.
Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: "Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading".
Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in "Who's Who in America." After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company's newsletter Chart Scan™.
Joe's philosophy for helping traders is:
"Teach our students the truth in trading - teach them how to trade."
"Give them a way to earn while they learn - realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader."
Joe sets forth the mission of Trading Educators as follows:

Master Trader Joe Ross passed away September 2021, and prior years he was continously sending me folders filled with Chart Scan and Trading Articles. The emails would be titled "More to follow" and I would reply, "Keep'em coming". I am calling these lessons "hidden vault" material because if Joe were still alive, this is exactly what would be shown in your inbox every Friday morning. This is not regurgitated material; this is new stuff written by Joe or as he would refer to it with such passion, "This is good stuff".
As we continue to receive newsletter sign ups, new students from every continent will start to learn trading Joe's way especially in this challenging market. This is where he would reinforce to his students, yes, that includes you, that learning to trade is possible even in this environment, "A chart, is a chart, is a chart". His writings will stand the test of time to provide teaching lessons and guidance.
The proceeds of Trading Educators will continue to support Joe's wife, Loretta, of 62 years of marriage, which she is our number one priority. We thank everyone with continued support and prayers for her well-being in late stages of dementia.
As expressed in the past editions, the trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader and his material will continue to be relevant. Let's start learning to trade Joe Ross' way with our future Chart Scan publications. I am here to help, so feel free to email me with any comments, questions or concerns.
This newsletter and future publications are created to keep Master Trader Joe Ross' lessons readily available to traders that want to learn and improve their skills. My father passed away on September 7, 2021 and will be greatly missed, but his writings will stand the test of time for generations to come. Take it to heart and learn from the best through Master Trader Joe Ross' trading examples and articles which have impacted thousands of traders on every continent for over 60 years.
