For each equity covered, both an Aggressive and a Conservative SmartStop is published. Aggressive SmartStops are designed to provide maximum downside protection and typically lie closer to the equity price. Conservative SmartStops allow for more price movement resulting in fewer trades and a lower probability of whipsaw. Both signal families intelligently adjust in an effort to keep you in an uptrend longer while exiting early in a down trend. Investors often favor the Aggressive signals for positions they plan to exit soon and for which they will not have time to recover should the equity experience a pull back.
