There are two possible causes for a big jump in SmartStops risk price point. Unlike other strategies that slowly trail upward at a steady pace SmartStops optimized prices are formulated to keep a close eye on the acceleration rate of the stock. When the stock price accelerates rapidly the risk profile will also accelerate rapidly so that greater profits can be locked in. The other cause of a sudden jump occurs when the SmartStops strategy switches. Remember, SmartStops analyzes a variety of strategies before deploying the most appropriate one based on its proprietary Smart(R) analysis. That way you are assured the correct strategy for current market conditions is always in place.
