These newsletters are a great place to find cryptos that you might not have previously considered. And, as always, make sure to thoroughly research a crypto before you purchase it.

Ideas by TradeSmith

Ideas by TradeSmith has a great integration with newsletters. But great newsletter investment ideas are endless, while capital is not. The Stock Finder tool can help take those newsletter recommendations and whittle them down to a more manageable list.

Inside Ideas by TradeSmith, simply set the Newsletter Recommendation option to Yes.

Ideas by TradeSmith Newsletter Filter
From there, select the newsletters that you’d like to view along with any other filters you’d like to include (i.e. green SSI, uptrend, & VQ less than 30%).

The results will display at the bottom of the screen. You can click the various tickers to see the performance chart of the stock in the market.


If you’ve found some stocks that you like, but don’t know what position size is best for you, you’re in luck! The TradeStops Position Size Calculator is here to help. With just a few clicks, you can optimize your position size based on your personal risk tolerance.

Bulletin Board

We know that the stock market has been very volatile lately. This volatility can lead to fear and a deviation from logical thought. But remember, it’s critical to follow your stop-loss strategy and avoid cognitive biases during times like these. For a more in-depth study on market volatility and cognitive bias, make sure to review TradeSmith’s informative Cognitive Bias series.
