Managing Investment Risk Properly
Hope is a big money-loser in the investment business. It is hope that keeps you from selling your losing stocks. And it is hope for a comeback that has you watch as your profits evaporate instead of protecting your gains. And then there is fear. Fear has you letting go of your winners too soon. Does the above sound familiar? Not to worry – you are not alone. The key to successful stock market investing or trading is:
- Cutting your losses before they get bigger
- Letting your winners run
It’s important to take the emotion out of investing and not rely on hope, panic, or optimism to form an opinion. And SmartStops is designed to help you do just that. Knowing when to sell is the most important part of the investing equation.
SmartStops puts at your fingertips an unbiased, intelligent capability via a next-generation risk profiling system to manage investment risk wisely. Developed by a team of industry experts with over 40 years of real-world market experience, SmartStops analytics empowers you to make intelligent, unemotional choices with your Stocks and ETFs.
SmartStops provides you:
Instant Risk Alerting. Be “in the know” of increasing risk by receiving an instant real-time risk alert to your mobile phone or email to indicate when there’s a high probability of further decline. Now you’ll know when it’s time to reevaluate your investment. And we will keep alerting you as the downtrend builds. Then, when the market (or the individual stock or ETF) settles back down, you’ll receive a “Return-to-Normal” Alert as well. Learn more about SmartStops Instant Risk Alerts.
Proactive Stop Loss orders. For every equity in your portfolio, SmartStops will publish both an Aggressive and Conservative price point in advance of the next day’s market. These are truly ‘smart trailing stops”. Aggressive SmartStops provide maximum downside protection and typically lie closer to the equity price, protecting profits more closely but resulting in more frequent trades. Conservative SmartStops allow for more price movement, resulting in fewer trades and a lower probability of whipsaw. Both approaches intelligently adjust, to keep you in an uptrend longer while still exiting early in case of a down trend. Learn more about Smart Trailing Stops

The SMART(R) approach – What Makes SmartStops so Powerful?
The Smart(R) optimization engine operates behind-the scenes. It analyzes the condition of both the macro market and the individual equity’s unique behavior to determine the optimum trailing stop price reflecting a risk profile. It uses much more than just a volatility factor (as Tradestops does). Sophisticated strategies will switch dependent upon price movements. This keeps you riding the uptrend longer growing your profits, while helping you protect and keep those profits. Learn more about how the Smart(R) engine works.
