Back in 2016, we introduced the concept of the 2 VQ approach, which has us adding to our winners once the position has trended up by 2 VQs.

Let’s pretend that you have a stock with a VQ of about 21%. When the position goes up 42%, you’d then add to the winning position. We discussed an example of this in Constellation Brands (STZ).

The technique saw some impressive gains for the position, and many of you asked for a 2 VQ alert. At the time, it wasn’t possible. You had to simply add a price alert based on what the stock’s price would be after a 2 VQ move.

Now, we’re excited to announce that the 2 VQ alert has been added to both TradeStops and Crypto by TradeSmith.

Adding a 2 VQ Alert

You can add a 2 VQ alert from the Position Card Page. Simply click on a ticker symbol that you own (or watch) within either program. Next, click the Alerts tab. Then, click Add Alert.

In the menu that appears, click Price. From there, you can add the 2 VQ alert to your position. You’ll then be notified when the latest close is 2 VQ above your entry price.

As we mentioned, this alert is based on your entry price, so make sure that you enter that information. If you happen to be missing it, that’s OK. You can simply go to the Position Detail tab on this page to add your Entry Price.
