Speaker:Greg Adams

Join Greg Adams, founder of Trade Coach, for this webinar event exploring how the E-mini SP500 price action behaves itself with Initial Balance lines.

Greg will introduce one of the strong by-products of market profile, Initial Balance, and outline the impact monitoring this timeframe can have on your trading. This can be particularly beneficial for those traders that have explored market profile in the past, but felt it may not have been a fit.

The strength of this simple approach to trading price levels will open new possibilities for futures traders, and Greg will outline how you can find these hidden opportunities.

The ES is the most liquid E-mini futures contract open 23.25 hours a day, 5 days a week. The Initial Balance hour is an interesting period due to that fact that, in theory, what happens in the first hour should not have much impact on price levels 12 or even 24 hours later. However, Greg will demonstrate that there are often times that there is significant influence on price levels and this can be many hours later.

Topics to be reviewed in this session include:

  • Key principles to follow on the ES
  • How to use common indicators effectively
  • Specific trade setup examples
  • How to automate your trading
  • Hidden opportunities to be found based on the Initial Balance hour
