Included in the Alert Software is our flagship algo, the Momentum System which is specifically designed to capture large point gains on days the market makes a significant directional move.
This easy-to-follow strategy was created to capitalize on major “impulse moves” that occur frequently in the market.
Here’s a simple overview.
Capitalize On The Primary Trend Of The Day
The Power Emini Momentum System is a “Range Breakout” system.
Shortly after the cash session opens, price establishes a “range” – and then the algo is looking to play a directional breakout of that range – assuming that there will be many days the price breaks out in one direction or the other – and never looks back. Conceptually we are looking to trade the “primary trend” of the market session in the direction of the breakout.
Once price breaks out of the “Range” the software calculates an optimal Entry level and 2 Targets. All we need is a move to Target 1 and the trade is at breakeven. We have the system calibrated for a 70-75% hit rate on Target 1.
The Targets are designed to lock in profits as the price moves in our favor – and there’s a trailing that stop ratchets along with the price – but hangs back enough so that we aren’t knocked out of the trade on normal counter-trend moves and normal price fluctuation.
Target 1 is typically close enough so that it doesn’t take a whole lot of follow-through to get hit and that’s the main goal. Once Target 1 is achieved you sell there and take partial profits – which puts the trade at breakeven. Then with virtually no risk of a loss on the trade, we hold a remaining contract for Target 2. Target 2 is a “way out” Target and on the days it gets hit – the system scores big points.
The Dynamic Trailing Stop gets the trade to Breakeven once Target 1 gets hit.
So in theory when T1 gets hit (70-75% of the time) the trailing stop will have moved enough to put the trade close to virtual breakeven so that if the price reverses and hits the raised stop it will result in a small gain or loss.
Then the real points are scored when price hits Target 2 – and also the occasional “runner” that goes past T2 on a long-range day. That’s where the system can really cash in big. When price hits T2 then the trailing stop will move to around the Entry price so there’s no risk on any additional contracts held past T2.
Since T2 is a “way out” target, the system is designed to shoot for big point gains. The initial stop starts off fairly wide because we are basically playing the directional trend of the entire session. But everything is “dynamic” meaning that the stops and targets are a function of the ranges and ATR’s in the market in any given session. That way the system adapts to any type of market environment, no matter how volatile it is at any given time.
The system is designed to score BIG POINTS
Ideally there is only 1 Alert per day and the market trends in the direction of the range breakout and never looks back – and continues on to hit both targets.
Some market sessions the price starts off and breaks out of the range in one direction, then reverses before it is able to make it to Target 1, in which case we get stopped out. Then frequently there’s an alert in the opposite direction – which can go on to hit both targets. That’s where a 2nd Alert occurs. It’s also possible to get a 2nd alert in the same direction as the original one – depending on how the price action manifests in relation to the Range. Everything is based on the price action in relation to the Trigger Range – and every aspect of the system is “dynamic” based on the ATR’s and ranges in the market at the time.
The Power Emini Momentum System will adapt to any type of market environment because of this. When the market is volatile and the ranges are wide, the targets are huge. When the market is dull and the ranges are small, the targets and stops adapt to be consistent with the current price action.
There will be occasional choppy days where the price zig-zags above and below the “Range” and those are typically tough days for the system because there’s no real directional movement.
The Alert Software has a “System Notes” section that displays a real-time play-by-play of everything that happens.
We recommend that new users start off with 2 MES micro contracts and just shoot for Target 1 and Target 2, selling one contract at each of those. After a while you can scale up adding contracts, say to 3 contracts, selling 2 at T1 and 1 at T2. The next scale up you’d hold an extra contract for the “runner”.
We have a step-by-step “Trade Plan” for getting started with the system and the exact progression for scaling up over time.
Any Contracts held past Target 2 are considered “Trend Runners”
The Benefits of Trading the Momentum Target Strategy:
1) It’s super-easy to follow along with the Alerts.
The software provides an Alert Price, Exact High-Probability Targets and a Dynamic Trailing Stop. This system starts up 5-minutes after the market opens (cash session) and the first thing you will see is the Dynamic Trigger Range appear in your Alert Software. Once price begins to break out of the range, shortly thereafter you will get a Trade Alert with a specific Trade Price Barrier entry level. Simply wait for a 1-minute close past the Trade Barrier (for confirmation) and pull the trigger on the trade. The software will show you exactly where to place the initial stop-loss and gives you both 2 Targets in advance. Sell a partial position at each of the Targets and just follow the system Trailing Stop.
The system typically generates 1-2 Trade Alerts per Day.
2) High-Probability Targeting
Since this is a “targeting system” we are looking to enter a directional move on a Breakout of the opening Dynamic Trigger Range and trade the impulse move as the system calculates high-probability targets along the way. With multiple contracts we can pull some contracts off at each Target and hold the remaining contracts for the next Target. The 2 Targets are “dynamic” and vary from day to day based on the current market structure, ATR’s and ranges in the market.
3) It’s easy to get started with very little risk and a small account size.
The MES (ES Micro Contract) is 1/10th the size of the regular CME ES contract so each MES contract represents only $5 per point. You can trade the MES without fear of big drawdowns and it’s the perfect way for a beginner to get started in the Futures market and learn the ropes. Build your confidence trading live with the Micro contract. The Momentum Target System can be traded with ES or MES. The Alert Software also includes the Momentum System for YM, NQ, and RTY.
4) The strategy is consistently profitable and scores big points.
The Statistical Edge is Gained Over The Series. The market is either trending strongly or it is not. Trading the Momentum Breakout Target System we attempt to catch the BIG runs. The Statistical Edge of the Momentum Breakout System mainly occurs over the series of trading sessions and not necessarily on a Trade by Trade basis.
The Momentum Breakout System can alert you to the gargantuan price moves and help you stay in strongly trending ACCUMULATION Days or DISTRIBUTION Days where large point gains can be captured – which put the odds in your favor OVER THE SERIES. (If you want quick point scalping action use the ES-S Power Scalper tab in the Alert Software)
The system is designed to keep you in for the big point moves – as it takes partial profits along the way. The trailing stop ratchets as price moves.
The Momentum System does not attempt to “predict” anything. It “reacts” to the current price movement in the market and sets a “structure” around the price action.
5) We’ll include the NinjaTrader 8 on-chart indicator at no extra charge.
We have a “companion indicator” for NinjaTrader 8 that plots everything on the chart for you – making it even easier to follow along. You’ll see the opening range, trailing stops and Targets right on your chart – and they adjust automatically. We’ll include the NT8 download instructions when we send you the step-by-step instructions to install the Alert Software. If you aren’t using Ninja, no worries – the system is still easy to follow and trade on whatever trading platform you are currently using. The Alert Software was designed to be a stand-alone Windows app so that you can trade along with the Alerts on any platform – using your existing broker.
The system “quants out” with an extremely high degree of accuracy. Trade Alerts are both to the Long and Short side, depending on the primary trend of the day.
One of the best features of all – is that on many days this is a “morning trading strategy” so you can trade it during just the first part of the day – score your points – and then wrap it up and go on to do other things. In other words, the market often trends strongly in the early part of the day – and we might see the first 2 Targets hit before lunch. At that point no further Alerts or Targets are issued – and the Trailing Stop just continues to ratchet. After both Targets get hit and the Trailing Stop eventually converges with the price, the system goes offline for the rest of the session. On certain days depending on how the price behavior manifests, the system can generate Alerts later in the afternoon.

The Momentum Target System is Simple to Trade
The Momentum Target System is designed to play the market profile structure that exists near the open each day.
On a typical day there is 1 Trade Alert shortly after the market opens. Certain days it may issue a 2nd Alert if there’s a major trend reversal in the early part of the session. The system is set to issue up to 3 “filled” Alerts per session max. If there are no “open Alerts” at the time, the system goes offline at 2:30 Eastern time.
One thing to note is that the Alert Price isn’t generated at the exact same time or level that the price breaks out of the Range, however it plays the directional break. The Range is generated shortly after the cash open and once there’s a break out of the range, the system calculates an optimal Entry point – then gives an Alert. Trades are based on the Alert “Trade Price Barrier” and you simply wait for a 1-minute close past the Barrier / Alert Price. We have a page in the documentation that explains in detail how the “Entry Trigger” works.
The System typically starts off with (what might be considered) a fairly wide initial stop. Remember we are trading the major directional move of the day and this is part of the strategy. The Trailing Stop automatically tightens up as price moves, but is calibrated to play the larger trend of the day without getting knocked-out by normal price fluctuation and volatility.
This is one of the reasons we recommend starting off with the MES Micro Contract, which allows us to play the primary trend moves without fear of a stop-out. With the regular ES contract, using a wide stop is not always feasible for some traders, but with the Micro Contract it’s no sweat. In addition, you are able to trade multiple contracts and hold on for multiple Targets which is what makes this system work so well.
As soon as a trade is “triggered in” the software shows both of the 2 Targets and the Trailing Stop.
The Momentum System algo automatically creates a play-by-play record in the “System Notes” section by writing out a line each time something happens. Here’s a screenshot of the Alert Software and an example of the System Notes for a Long Alert (read from the bottom up and note the time stamps):
Each time an Entry is triggered, a Target gets hit, or the Trailing Stop moves – you will hear an audio alert. And the action will instantly be recorded in the System Notes section of the software.
The Momentum System can be traded purely mechanically.
There are tons of complicated indicators out there on the market – super expensive “training” courses – and trading rooms. We chose an entirely different paradigm that lets you simplify your approach to being a successful Futures Trader – A fully-automated trading program that does all the hard work behind the scenes and delivers the Best Futures Trading Signals right to your Desktop via a software program / app.
The Power Emini Momentum System “algorithm” is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It’s reacts to the specific real-time price movement each market session. The software displays an Entry, Stop, Trailing Stops and Targets – and is calibrated so that Target 1 will get hit 70-75% of the time over a longer-term series of trades.
Once target 1 gets hit, a trade is at essentially at “Breakeven”. Then the automated Trailing Stop takes over and “ratchets” to protect gains while keeping you in the trade for the BIG moves.
The BIG POINTS are scored when the price hits Target 2
This system has been on the market for 5-years and over that time we’ve tweaked, enhanced and improved the logic behind the algo. It’s running like a finely-tuned machine and we believe it’s the Best Futures Trading System available anywhere.
