“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”…
// Learn How to Day Trade and Learn How to Swing Trading
As Day Traders and Swing Traders our mission is simple. We are looking for stocks that we expect will move in a predictable direction. We want to take a position with a predefined stop level and profit target. Sounds easy right? In a lot of ways it is. But there are literally thousands of different strategies for trading the market. Every trader has a unique approach to trading. Our goal is to teach you our strategies. I have developed a series of profitable trading strategies for beginners. Our Trading Courses focus on the most fundamental aspects of a successful trade.

// Chart Patterns
After you understand risk management and proper stock selection, we teach you how to find stock patterns on charts. These patterns are how we base our risk and reward. We look for chart patterns that have well defined areas of support and resistance. We will use previous support levels as our stop price, or our risk, and we look at previous resistance areas as our initial profit target, or our reward. If the profit vs loss ratio is 2:1 we will take the trade. I teach both day trading strategies and swing trading strategies. For day trading we focus primarily on 5min charts while swing traders focus more on daily charts. The patterns in general are the same. I teach traders how to find patterns in real-time including Bull Flags, Bear Flags, Flat Tops, Flat Bottoms, and Rubber Band Reversal Setups.

// Trading Strategies
Learning risk management, proper stock selection, and chart patterns is important, but those alone don’t create a trading strategy. A trading strategy requires details on the time of day you take these trades, what type of stocks you like to trade, what percentage to success you expect. All our students are required to papertrade and prove to me that they can trade on a percentage of success that is high enough to justify real trading. If you can’t make money in a demo account, you have no business trading a real account. We have saved students hundreds of thousands of dollars by encouraging paper trading while they are learning. The market will be here for a long time to come. The important thing for you right now is to build up the skills to trade the market successfully. You will learn that once you possess the skills to consistently make $20.00/day all it takes to make $200 is larger share size. Then all it takes to make $2000 is again, larger share size. The hardest part is being consistently green just $20/day. So that is our initial target for all of our students. Profitable trading 4/5 days per week for at least 3 months.

another great video

DrenchedTwine says:

What indicator is the purple thing that overlaps the candles? Great video by the way!!!

George Bustos says:

Undoubtedly the best teacher. Thanks Ross!

James J says:

Kind of confused on the 1 min stop. You’re saying you can set a stop to readjust at each previous candles low?

Ande Viper Trader Pfeiffer says:

Thank you 1000 times, for explaining how to when shorts are piling in vs profit takeing

gregonometry says:

How do you physically get your order in quick enough before another candle changes your entry point?

Mike Marquez says:


Wiseguy158 says:

Hi Ross. I’m just a couple weeks in of studying and watching videos to learn, so excuse an ignorant question… How do you define a gapper? Any stock that opens above the previous day close, or do you look for a certain % of an increase?

Antonella Pippia says:

thank you for the explanation, you’ve actually answered some of the questions I had on entry levels. Toni

Jason says:

saying you would take 10-15K shares at this would be $240,000! Think you need to be more realistic with your numbers and risk you present.

7Hagit says:

Thank you very much

Sem Wattez says:

Maybe my reaction is a little bit on the late side, but do you trade in the premarket? Because there the price moves too.

BlackerTheBerry TV says:

I just learned so much from this video!!!! It’s not as difficult to understand as many of the other videos on here. Thanks man!

Marquise West says:

Really learning some good stuff here. Now what is a “V-wap”?

Richard Soto says:

I picked 5 random stocks that were gaping up today. I noticed that 4 out of the 5 would have earned money if you jumped right in at the open. Would this be a crazy strategy? To jump right in at the bell.

I know your other videos discuss waiting on the pullback 🙂

Alex Skywalker says:

it’s too bad you dont have access to CFDs ross. if someone like you had that tool at your disposal, you would own the world. no SSR, instant fills… scary to think of you being able to do that lol

Victor Lipe says:

what room are you in ? do you use discord?

ElaineBenes99 says:

Love this video. This has become my favorite day trading setup, except I use options. Same principles, but setting stops and exits a bit more complicated. Explosive profits especially when a stock has high short interest, like $W Wayfair 5/9/17. Calls exploded higher, & if anything, I sold too soon, LOL. Thanks for the video and your others, Ross! They have taught me so much.

richard peterson says:

Is there a type of stock in particular you look for when you scan gappers to trade? Float size? Cap size? Or do you go after all stocks that gapped? Your advice will be appreciated. Thanks

Derrick Caton says:

Thank you sensei.

adonis prime says:

in one of ur videos u said u made around $1200 for the day and was done for the day. my question is how much could u make if u traded the whole day?

one thus come says:

I’d be curious to know..do you ONLY buy if there is a pull back on your gap-up strategy?
thank you

John Willis says:

You might know by now I’m a huge fan. Within 2 minutes you say something about NEWS. Could you answer my question or make a video that describes circumstances in which you would move on NEWS, TACTICS, or a combination of both?

Also, what makes a news story hit your radar other than it being JUST a news story? I consider news stories the back end of my watchlist. How would you move your trades if your watch lists and news were running in opposite directions?

Thank you!

Techno Tard says:

absolutely clear explanation into the psychology of the chart. Ross, I think I’m getting in on your chat room.

Nick Foxer says:

@10:18-10:23 he uses the word “print” twice… what does he mean by that?

Paulo Dias says:

Hello Ross, I juste want to say thank you for sharing this precious knowledge. Keep it this way. All the Best from Switzerland

pf1950 says:


Max Tyburski says:

what website, or software are you using to track those stocks?

i a says:

What trading software is this? Would be kind if someone responds, thank you

Braedan Dyck says:

Hey Ross, just wondering what platform you’re using???

Joachim Peiper says:

This is EXCELLENT info, im new to day trading and taking the prescribed steps, paper account, education, etc. this kind of info is pure gold, keep up the great work!!!!!!

Thakarshing says:

do your strategies work on spot forex? or just stocks? thanks

Bob T says:

I am just starting my Warriortrading Pro. education and this video is excellent. Clear and understandable.
Thank you Ross.

Zahid Khan says:

awesome explanation.
Would you be able to provide information about resources that one can use to find gap stocks. Thanks

rofsjan says:

Thank you very much, Ross, for this video.
This definitely helps.

Tony Gregg says:

Regarding the entry… When the green candle breaks the high of the red candle… Are you looking at the close of the green or the high of the green breaking the high of the red candle?

Ghulam Mansha says:

I am new trader and I watched all your videos good information thank you.

indian atheist says:

Nice sir, I appreciate.clear insite.

Brayden McKinney says:

How do you scan for those gap ups?

Fernando Guzman says:

Great info!! Do you always trade on 2 minute chart? some say trade on 1 minute others 5 minute.

DrStormpooper says:

I’ll watch this video every day till the end of times.

Rylan DeAngelis says:

Hi, do you use level 2 on all your trades? Thanks. Great tutorial by the way 🙂


Do you have a trading course or a book, which I can buy?

Auto Buying Expert ABS says:

good video. But Ross keeps saying 1 min chart but shows a 2 min? Which one Ross?

MarcoTM/theminecraft Cabral says:

Hi Ross, Great strategy and great job on the video. I’m curious about the purple indicator on your tc2000 chart here, not the EMA’s, Stochs or Vol but the purple almost triangle looking indicator that shows from the bottom to the top of your main charts. Appreciate your response.

Danijel Makar says:


Bryan Delgado says:

Love it!

Brayden McKinney says:

Are you looking for Gap Ups ONLY from Premarket? Or can you use this strategy at other times during the day?


is that chart software for free?
