Stock Alerts
Important! Please read entire document!
Fast-moving stocks wait for no one! With stock alerts, we provide you with trades from our
proven trading system in real-time so you can be aware of the best trades even when you are at
work or school.
We will text or email you the stock, the price to buy and 2 sell prices -- one if the stock is a
winner and one if it is a loser. Place your stop-loss order so you are protected and sell the
stock, even when you are not watching the market. Trades typically last 3 days -- 1 month.
Do you know what selling short means? You make money when stock prices are going down
and lose money when stock prices go up. Selling short is not allowed in retirement accounts
like IRA's, 401k's, etc. We will be offering trade ideas to buy (long) and to sell short.
Selling short is only allowed in a margin brokerage account.
If you are not familiar with selling short, read about it online. Entering short trades in your
brokerage account may say: "Sell to enter" the trade. Exiting a short position often looks like:
"Buy to exit or close" the trade.
How Much Should I Risk Per Trade?
No one should ever buy one stock with all their money. How much is the right amount to use
for each trade? The answer depends on:
1) how much money you have
2) how much you are willing to risk losing on a single trade
Principle #1 -- The more money you have, the more you can afford to risk losing
The more money you have, the more you can afford to risk without it hurting you too much.
Someone with $5 million can afford to lose $10,000 but someone whose entire savings is
$20,000 can't afford to lose that much.
Risk is the potential loss from the trade; risk is not how much money it takes to buy the stock.
For example, let's say that Trader #1 has $100,000 and Trader #2 has $20,000. You receive a
trade alert based on news for XYZ stock:
MTU Trade Alert!
Buy XYZ stock (as soon as possible) at $20 or less
Sell (Stop Loss) at $18 or sell at a profit in one month.
Trader #1 buys 500 shares at $20/share for $10,000. If the stock drops to $18, the trader will
sell 500 shares at a $2/share loss or $1,000. This is reasonable risk for someone with $100,000.
Trader #2 buys 100 shares at $20/share for $2,000. If the stock drops to $18, the trader will sell
100 shares at a $2/share loss or $200. This is reasonable risk for someone with $20,000.
The potential loss is known before the trade is entered based on how many shares were
purchased and how far it is to the stop loss price. If you are comfortable risking more, you can
purchase more shares. If you want to risk losing a little less, buy fewer shares.
We recommend trading without money or with small amounts until you are comfortable with
how the system works and how much you are willing to risk.
Principal #2 -- Gaps
What is a gap? Most of the time, stocks open trading each day about the same price it closed
the previous trading day. However, sometimes news comes out after trading hours that can
have a large effect on the stock price. The stock may then open trading much higher or lower
than the previous day's closing price. This is called a "gap" because there is a gap on the stock
chart from one day to the next.
You always want to use a Stop Loss order. Stop Loss orders will sell your stock if it hits
your pre-determined limit, even if you aren't watching. The problem is that if a stock gaps in
price from one day to the next, you could lose more than you originally calculated.
In the previous example, the stock could gap from $19 to $13, leaving each trader with a
$6/share loss. Trader #1 would lose $3,000 instead of $1,000 and Trader #2 would lose $600
instead of $200.
For this reason, you should not get too aggressive with this or any other trading strategy -unforeseen events do happen.
Follow these guidelines and reap the rewards of safe, profitable trading.
