Dear Traders,

Master Trader Joe Ross passed away September 2021, but his writings provide teaching lessons and guidance.  We have folders filled with Chart Scan and Trading Articles that have not been published and would consider them "hidden vault" material. 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.  As we continue to receive newsletter sign ups, new students from every continent will continue to learn trading Joe's way especially in this challenging market. This is where Joe 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".

The proceeds of Trading Educators will continue to support Joe's wife, Loretta, of 62 years of marriage, which 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.

All the best,
Joe Ross' daughter Martha Ross-Edmunds

Chart Scan with Commentary:  Second Time Through

In my book "Day Trading," I showed a method for trading cluster breakouts. This method can tie in very well with the concept of second-time through. As I've written before, stop running is nothing more than order filling. A high probability short-term trade can be made when attempting entry on a second time through the high that occurred at the end of the long move up shown at the arrow.

When you see prices poke through the high of a consolidation area, and then fall right back into the consolidation, you can be sure that the thrust up was purely to run the stops. However, once the orders have all or mostly been filled, the next time price thrust through, the move is likely to be real based on something that has taken place in the fundamentals

AMAT (Applied Materials Inc) Ratio Spread Trade - Continued

Last week we showed our ratio spread trade on AMAT.

For those having more positions on, it was possible to apply a "profit maximizing strategy" and wait until expiration day to get a higher profit.

On 6th May 2022, it was possible to close AMAT May 6 2022 +115P/-2*110P for a debit fo 1.35, i.e. 135$ profit on top of the initial credit of 110$.

When the stock "pins" at our short strike, which happens at times, we can even get close to maximum profit, i.e. spread width plus initial credit, or 610$ in this case). On our third position, we got 245$, or 37% of maximum profit.

Trading Article:  Striving for Perfection

You will never be a perfect trader. However, as traders we have a strong need to want complete control over the outcome of a trade. We want to believe that if we analyze the markets long enough, we'll have perfect knowledge and we can trade to perfection. But such desire leads to wrong assumptions that can do us more harm than good. Assuming we must have control restricts our actions and reactions, and the result can be....read more.

Day-Trading the T-Notes Future without Stress

Like almost everyone out there, Ambush too got hit by the crazy markets out there, including the 10 Year T-Notes Future (ZN, traded at CME). But that market did give us quite a reversal and its performance is at new all-time highs again!

Here's a daily chart of the ZN Future, showing the last month of trading. As you can see this market moved lower but did so in a slow way. Perfect conditions for the Ambush System that managed to hit one swing-low after the other providing plenty of profit opportunities.

Here are the results of these trades, trading only one 10Y T-Notes Future (ZN) contract:

Marco Mayer shares trading success with Ambush Trading Method example trading education

Yup, that's a profit of over $2k in just a few weeks with a couple of trades in the $1k profit range. That's a lot for a day trade in the ZN future which is a small contract!

Here's the long-term chart of ZN:

Marco Mayer shares trading success with Ambush Trading Method example trading education

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 trade and join Ambush Signals today!

Happy Trading!



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!

About Joe Ross

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.

Master Trader Joe Ross shares trading education

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:
