Automated From A Brokerage Account. Going Live March 1, 2019!


The Catch – Samantha’s LIVE Portfolio – Closed Trades Only

ONLY EXECUTION PAYS So…Our Automated Trade Alerts Exit When Stops Are Hit! 

These Stops –for both Stocks and Options – are based on the projected price of the underlying equity, which we enter manually when we enter a trade (Think: “Conditional Order” in a brokerage account). These Stops – both Profit and Loss – are subjective and often based on the high price (when going short) or low price (when going long) of the corresponding range bar – a range bar that is determined by the chart time-frame:

  • Chases – trades that typically last 1-3 Days employing options 1-3 weeks out – are based on hourly chart time-frame.
  • Swings – trades that typically last 1-3 Weeks employing options 1-3 months out – are based on daily chart time-frame.
  • Trends – trades that typically last 1-3 Months employing options 3-6 months out – are based on weekly chart time-frame.
  • Ideas – trades that capture potential earnings, volatility or Unusual Option Activity events – are based on any duration.

IMPORTANT: Automated Stops trigger executed fills/orders (through Interactive Brokers) which triggers the Exit Price in the Live Portfolio which triggers the Trade Alerts you receive via Web and Email and SMS. You enter trades at your own risk. Learn more.
