Un-Limit Your Gains with TradeStops

Tom Meyer explained why people sometimes limit their gains – fear. In his article, he also covered how TradeStops can help you see beyond your market fears to capture more gains.

But… how can you perform the same research that Tom did? Well, we will cover that today so you can learn how you could un-limit your gains on your current and future investments.

Let’s Recap

In Tom’s article, he covered two stocks – Nvidia (NVDA) and Pepsi (PEP). He showed you some charts, such as the one below for Nvidia.

Tom’s Chart
NVDA was in the yellow zone at this point, which means that it was in a period of caution. You would have known that NVDA was just experiencing its normal level of volatility.

How can you view this information?

You can access this chart information to see how your stock is performing from the Position Card Page and the Stock Analyzer in your program.

The Position Card Page is a good place to look to see detailed information. The Stock Analyzer is more suited for research purposes – especially if you don’t own the stock yet. We’ll cover both.

How to use the Stock Analyzer Chart

Using the Stock Analyzer is easy. After you log into TradeStops, click Research and then click Stock Analyzer. Simply type in a ticker, choose your trade type, and pick your Entry Date. For this example, we will continue to use NVDA.

2. Stock Analyzer
Click Analyze when you are ready. The results will then appear. For this exercise, we are only going to focus on the bottom part of the results – the chart!

 Stock Analyzer Overview

There’s a lot of information to cover on the chart all at once, so we will take it one step at a time. Let’s start with how to add information to the chart itself.

On the bottom-left section of your results is the legend. It has little colorful circles with some key items.

 Stock Analyzer Legend

If a circle is colored in, this means that data will appear on the chart. For example, in the photo above, notice how the SSI Yellow Zone is colored in but the Trailing Stop isn’t. This means I will see the yellow zone information on the chart, but I won’t see the trailing stop.

To turn data on, just click the white circle. To turn the data off, just click the colorful circle.

Now, let’s look at the chart.

The indicators we turned on appear on the chart. For this example, we will look at part of the chart for NVDA – the same part that Tom talked about in his article.

Stock Analyzer Chart
Notice the yellow bell on the chart. This is when NVDA went into the yellow zone. You can tell because the stock’s market price went below the yellow line on the chart.

Did you see the red line on the chart? If the stock’s market price went below this red line, it would have been stopped out.

Instead, the stock corrected and started going up again, and it went back into the green again. That is what the green triangle signifies.

Following the green and closely monitoring the yellow can help you stay in a stock and not jump out too soon. This way, you can un-limit your gains. The mathematics allow you to see beyond any fear you might have of the stock’s current performance.

Can I see this chart info elsewhere?

As we mentioned earlier, you can also view this chart info from the Position Card Page. Again, this page is good to use if you already own the stock. That way, you don’t have to search for the stock.

Accessing the Position Card Page

Working with the Position Card Page is easy too. Simply click Positions & Alerts, and then click the ticker you want to review. The Position Card Page will display. Once again, we will focus on the lower part of this page.

In this case, let’s look at the other ticker from Tom’s article – PEP.

Position Card Page Overview

There are several tabs and the chart. To get to the same chart legend you worked with on the Stock Analyzer, just click the Chart Settings tab.

Like before, you can click the white circles to turn on the data on the chart. Click colorful circles to turn the data off.

Card Page Legend

Some data will be grayed out. In the photo above, you can see that the VQ, Trailing Stop, and Fixed Price are grayed out. This is because we are not using those alerts on the PEP position. If we wanted to view that information, we would simple need to add that alert type.

How do I analyze the chart?

The settings that you turned on will appear on the chart. It reacts just the same as the Stock Analyzer.

Card Page Chart
Once again, the yellow bell tells you when the stock entered the yellow zone since the stock’s market price fell below the yellow line. Once again, you could know that this is normal volatility for the stock since the market price did not hit the red line to be stopped out.

The green triangle indicates that PEP entered the green zone again. It is a good way of knowing that PEP has corrected itself from its period of caution and is healthy again. You could know that, according to the SSI, PEP is still a safe investment. You could stay with this trade and earn more gains.
