Looking at this return for a trading system, you might surmise that this trading strategy was incredibly active.

The equity curve is too smooth to be from one stock. It must be a highly active strategy with tight risk management parameters to minimize the downside, right?

Well, you’d be almost right.

This is the return if one invested $10,000 in one idea per week since March 2020 following the #TradeIdeas Trade of the Week.

The Trade of the Week is a free weekly email that arrives in inboxes on Monday mornings before the open of trading. The email highlights one stock found using Trade Ideas technology that is setting up for a potential swing trade. Subscribers to the free email will receive the trigger price to signal when to enter the position, as well as instructions when to exit the trade to limit your risk or take your profits. And all trades (win or lose) are exited by the end of the week so your account is safely in cash over the weekend.

Then we repeat with a new idea the next Monday.

Trading doesn’t always have to be complicated or high volume. We don’t have to make it hard. At the end of the day, profits are profits. Let’s make it easy on ourselves.

Sign up for the free Trade of the Week email and take your trading to the next level.
