eBook – NASDAQ Triple Trigger Trading
Unlocking NASDAQ Profits
Three triggers for daily cash... in the world’s most overlooked market.
$16,000 gone. In a matter

Earlier this year, a guy
simply walked into an art
gallery, plucked a small
French sculpture off the
shelf and walked right out
the door with it.
The haul? A piece by French artist Fred Allard made of gold chain, glass and silver bottles, on display at Galeries Bartoux right off Central Park.
In the end, the thief was caught, and the sculpture retrieved. To read the news story is both alarming and oddly inspiring at the same time. On some level, you have to admire the absolute gall required to pull off a bold (desperate?) stunt like that.
He didn’t even bother wearing a mask.
Believe it or not, you walk right past thousands of dollars in daily profits… simply there for the taking.
You don’t have to go into a hoity-toity ‘galerie’ to spot them. And unlike our sculpture-snatching villain, these profits are 100% legal to take.
[Note to the reader: This is where 90% of trading articles and educational guides start babbling on about the S&P, or Crude Oil, or the Euro. Nope. Not this time. Not us.]
We’re talking about the NASDAQ. The easiest to trade, yet most overlooked market in the world. In fact, we’re willing to bet that you look at the NASDAQ in one form or another every day.
If you’re like millions of traders out there… for some reason you haven’t touched it. Or if you have, you’ve given it up for another seemingly more alluring, more popular index or future.
Big mistake. Why? Easy, daily profits are sitting right under your nose.
Better Returns Right Under Your Nose
Why the NASDAQ is perfect for any level of trader.
Every second, every day, in every market, millions of traders are sitting in front of a screen trying to figure out how to turn a profit. Many of them will flame out, while a select few will struggle and toil tirelessly to just break even.
When you take apart these losing strategies, you’ll often find one common flaw:
They’re trading a market that they don’t know much about.
This is especially the case for the do-it-yourselfers trading the S&P. In most instances, they’ve set their sights on this market because their friends, and many trading educators, talk the most about the S&P.
In reality, the NASDAQ holds clear advantages that can translate directly into daily profits for traders at any level.
Let’s start with performance. While both are equity indexes, the NASDAQ-100 is heavily allocated towards top-performing sectors like Technology, Consumer Services and Healthcare.
Why does this matter? Take a look around you or watch TV for 30 seconds. These sectors rule the markets, and have for some time.
This factor has helped the NASDAQ-100 outperform the S&P 500 by a wide margin for the past 10+ years. Check out the charts below.
Consider this: The historical cumulative returns for the NASDAQ-100 between 12/31/2007 and 1/31/2019 is more than double the cumulative total return for the S&P 500.
Even better? These results come with a trader’s best friend: Volatility.
Not a ton more, but enough to give you the entry opportunities you need to turn out a daily profit.
The NASDAQ-100 has an annualized volatility of 22% compared to the S&P’s 20%.
So, the sectors are friendly. The profits are available by a factor of 2X. And the volatility opportunities are definitely there.
What more could you possibly want from a market?
How about a trade setup you can repeat over and over… every day?
The Ultimate NASDAQ Setup
A ridiculously simple trade anyone can spot execute.
If you’ve ever watched Tiger Woods win on a Sunday, like he just did at the Masters - then you’ve witnessed a phenomenon that millions of viewers FLAT OUT MISS.
We’re not talking about his talent, his red shirt, or his Nike shoes.
This ‘phenomenon’ has a name. He calls it the ‘stinger’.
To watch it is a thing of golfing beauty. The ball knifes through the air on a low trajectory right down the middle of the fairway. Tiger has pulled this shot out of his bag to clinch major after major down the stretch.
This very shot has made him hundreds of millions of dollars.
Why? It’s his ‘go-to’ shot under the most intense pressure. He’s used it in all kinds of conditions to stay out of trouble and maintain control.
Most amateur traders look in their bag at crunch time and find that it’s completely empty.
The market is racing. The losses are pushing your account to the brink. And there is nothing to lean on when all else has failed.
If you’re reading this thinking, ‘well I HAD a go-to trade setup, but it kept letting me down’ -- you’re not alone.
Traders enter the market every day with the one-trick pony they learned from someone, somewhere.
Those one-trick ponies all have several features in common. Most commonly, they all seem to require absolutely perfect market conditions to work. And the results? You manage to hit a home run once in a blue moon. But more often than not, you’re running your confidence and trading account into the ground trying.
Let’s put that in the past for good.
Thanks to the way the NASDAQ behaves, you don’t need a home run trading
strategy to profit consistently.
In fact, you can pick up steady profits with a basic setup that works in different
market conditions. And not just a ‘setup’, but a triple-trigger setup designed
specifically for the NASDAQ.
Why ‘Triple Trigger’?
Let’s put it this way: We’ve made and seen a ton of mistakes.
You name it and we’ve done it, tried it, and lost in the process.
In fact, we spent two entire years isolating the traps and hazards that even experienced NASDAQ traders seem to always fall for.
Towards the top of that long and distinguished list of horrible, losing ideas? We completely overestimated the profit potential of our trades. The ‘confirmation’ techniques were conflicting and confusing.
They required huge wins to be profitable over the course of the year, meaning you have to endure loss after loss before you score.It was out of that punishment and pain that the Triple Trigger was developed
The strategy boils down to three ‘trigger’ basics:
• Direction: Key turning points in price need to be isolated. Specifically, those that occur when price is in extreme overbought or oversold conditions.
• Price: Knowing the direction is not enough. We need to pinpoint exactly where -- to the TICK or CENT -- what price levels we’re going to trade.
• Timing: Not all entry points are created equal. The timing trigger helps us prioritize exactly which of the candidate entry points you should actually move forward with.
Check out the below chart for the front NQ contract.
There’s enough market movement to make any trader very, very happy… or very, very broke.
As we all have painfully experienced, not all of these entries are as fantastic as they might seem.
However, each one of them can be put through the Triple Trigger filter in a matter of seconds. That’s right -- seconds. No second-guessing.
That sense of panic you feel when you see an entry unfolding? You can get rid of
That fear of missing out that grips you when you see price start to make a move?
Save that for everyone else.
In three easy steps, you can determine if:
1. Price is heading in a favorable direction for either a buy or a sell trade. Or
more importantly -- nothing at all.
2. Exactly what price level you should be stalking based on projected
3. When you should pull the trigger and enter for the best high probability
Yes. It’s that simple.
Let’s start with the first trigger… direction.
There are points in every market when either buyers or sellers lose steam. Price
reaches an overbought or oversold condition and it’s time for a correction.
The opposing side simply steps in, and price turns the other way -- creating
the direction you should trade with.
Instead of trying to master a PhD in standard deviation, or attempting to watch
the Time & Sales tape like a human super-computer… you can simply have this
boiled down to ‘BUY’ or ‘SELL’ zones.
[Note to the reader: Maybe it’s all of the hard lessons learned and punishing
losses. But we’ve simply lost our appetite for fancy jargon and weird useless
So, we’ve chosen to keep it simple. For the direction trigger:
If price is in the RED… price has reached a really EXPENSIVE LEVEL… and
you’re in a SELL ZONE.
If price is in the GREEN… price has reached a really CHEAP LEVEL… and you’re
in a BUY ZONE.
Looking at this, you can immediately rule out some of the entry points.
Why? Price has not reached enough of an extreme to justify the entry. Sit tight
and save your money.
Next, we need to know EXACTLY what price levels we should be watching.
(Not zones… exact levels.)
Welcome to the second trigger: Price
In a market like the NASDAQ, price has done us the favor of painting a long, very
detailed picture of what it prefers to do at certain levels.
This is largely based on institutional activity at these very levels.
Millions of traders sense this… and try to eyeball historical support and
resistance levels on their chart.
This has two fatal flaws:
1. The levels they choose aren’t really based on anything other than intuition.
You can stare as much as you like at different price levels, but unless you
know the ones that saw strong institutional support (or not) -- you’re wasting
2. Typical support and resistance tools will tell you what’s ALREADY
HAPPENED. By then it’s too late. You need to LOOK RIGHT on your chart
with confidence, knowing what to stalk in advance.
For price levels to be of any use whatsoever, they need to be: (a) very, very
precise, and (b) projected well in advance so that you can stalk them.
This requires a trigger that’s capable of translating institutional activity into a
FUTURE PRICE LEVEL… lot a lousy one from the past.
So, why not have the EXACT LEVELS plotted on your chart -- in real time, well in
advance before price reaches them?
At this point, you’re already ahead.
Knowing when the market will reach an extreme and having exact price levels to
stalk -- well in advance -- gives you a massive advantage.
This just leaves you with the age-old question… when?
The third trigger, Time, answers that for you.
Imagine having an institutional NASDAQ trader sitting alongside you
whispering: ‘Hey, there’s one on the way… it’s in an overbought zone, and is
about to reach a price level we love… we’re gonna SELL on the next candle…’
Do you think you would enter? Would you at least watch to see what the heck
happens and if the trade turned out?
If you’re like us… you’d probably test it in simulation and then give it a shot.
In any event, the TIME trigger gives you the final data point on whether it’s time
to make an entry
Notice how our NASDAQ chart (below) with multiple entry points suddenly went down to just a few?
Think of your NASDAQ chart as a map. You know that the landscape is already
filled with profits.
The Triple-Trigger method provides three critical conditions that you can lay
right over your chart to remove the second-guessing and wasted time.
1. Direction: Confirm you’re in a buy or sell zone.
2. Price: Focus on the exact price levels that have projected activity.
3. Time: Enter with the triggers that overlap with Direction and Price.
And the best part? You don’t have to swing for the fences.
Using this method, in any time frame, you can easily spot 5-20 high
probability trades a session.
This removes one MASSIVE BURDEN that many amateur traders carry: Feeling
like they need to hit a home run to be profitable.
Taking Home Daily Profits
How to rack up winners while having fun in any time frame.
There’s a sad truth about our home run heroes that nobody ever wants to talk
about. To a person, they all had the same horrible flaw at the plate. Babe Ruth,
Hank Aaron, Barry Bonds… all of them.
They struck out ALL the time.
Let’s tear the band-aid off all at once. Striking out in the market sucks.
You can justify the losses however you like. We hear them all.
If you’re wondering, our favorite excuse is the ‘Zen approach’ to losses: When
a trader has a series of losses, or even one big fat massive killer of a loss… they
suddenly become philosophical… almost as though they should be in a temple in
Tibet contemplating a raisin.
It’s as if the loss was meant to be… an integral part of the tapestry that is the
cosmic way of life… a grand peace offering to the Gods of the market.
Or some garbage like that.
If you’re doing that… or have done that… and we all have… STOP.
If you want to curb your losses: Stop swinging for the fences.
For starters, we’ve found that the NASDAQ doesn’t really operate that way
anymore. Attempting a home run trade where you don’t get stopped out isn’t a
reasonable or consistently possible objective.
Also, the emotional roller coaster you put yourself on is simply not profit-friendly. No trader, regardless of experience or talent level, consistently makes
good decisions when they experience the extreme highs and lows that go with
home run trades.
There’s no better place to exercise this approach than the NASDAQ.
Why? You don’t need a high percentage of winning trades to make money
with the NASDAQ. In fact, you can be right LESS THAN HALF THE TIME and still
increase your share of daily profits.
To put this in perspective, think of it as a simple formula:
• Frequency: Using the Triple-Trigger method you can easily find 5-20 high
probability trades in each trading session.
• Results: If you set the reasonable goal of THREE $100 profit trades a day,
with high probability setups, you’ll see better long-term results.
• Risk: Never risk more than 5% of your account with every trade and you’ll
preserve your trading capital.
With the above approach, you can quickly grow a $1,000 account into a profit-generating machine in no time.
That’s not an opinion, that’s basic market math and the law of averages.
The best part about both trading and the NASDAQ will surface in an undeniable
fashion: Taking home daily profits is far more fun than hitting home run trades.
Here’s the deal: The plan for daily profits can be as simple or as complicated as
you decide to make it.
Why not simplify?
1. Start watching the NASDAQ during the course of the market and compare it
to other instruments during major market events.
2. Apply the Triple-Trigger method using a basic suite of tools that tell you
a. Directions the market is moving in when it reaches extremes.
b. Exact price levels you should be stalking based on projected institutional activity.
c. High probability trades are timed to meet ideal Direction and Price conditions.
3. Institute a plan that allows you to build a platform of profits while steering
clear of the risky home-run trades.
Now is the time to take your fair share. Master the world’s most overlooked
market for daily profits and have fun in the process.
How to save time, money and heartache in the NASDAQ.
There’s an age-old myth that just about every trader falls for at one time or
another during their career.
Usually this myth presents itself at the very beginning of their career and then
again towards the middle.
It’s very costly. And incredibly painful.
The myth? That you can do it all yourself.
The logic seems very sound at first, we hear it all the time: ‘Look, there’s a ton of
information out there and I’m a pretty smart person. I should be able to figure it
The problem? By the time you actually do figure it out, you will likely have blown
through a ton of trading capital and will be too tired to enjoy your success.
We suggest that you save yourself both time and money.
