Dr. Richard Smith here.

Earlier this week, my good friend Adam Mesh and I delivered an urgent message.

It concerns a powerful system that Adam agrees addresses the single biggest threat to self-directed investors like you and me.

In the next few minutes, I’ll explain exactly what that danger is and how to protect yourself against it.

I’ll also show you – because you’re Yolo Publishing reader – how to access a suite of tools adopted by top traders and professional investors that you can now use to…

  • Ferret out and control hidden risk…
  • Shield your portfolio from catastrophic losses, and…
  • Stay in winning positions – with the potential for massive upside profits of 275% or more – long after the herd has lost its nerve.

For instance, back-tested results show that using this system could have allowed you to capture a gain of 185% on a stock like Immersion Corp. (IMMR) that has a huge potential for outsize profits.

Of course, any stock with that kind of upside also represents significant risk.

And the fact is, most investors just don’t have the stomach to ride a stock like IMMR, no matter how big the final payout is.

More importantly, they don’t have a system that can help them determine when the party’s over. But that’s exactly what happened when I took my profits in IMMR and then walked away before it tanked.

If you’ve ever bailed out on a winning stock – only to watch it continue climbing for weeks and months later – you know exactly what I mean.

Or maybe you’ve ridden a loser all the way down to zero, hoping against hope the market would turn back in your favor.

If you…

  • Manage your own investments…
  • Buy and sell stocks….
  • Want to dramatically increase your wealth without absorbing devastating losses…

Then these next few minutes could be some of the most important of your life.

Here are the 4 Simple Steps you can take right now to dramatically improve your portfolio performance, without the need to buy any new stocks.

Step #1:

Log in to TradeStops and check your portfolio volatility


This first step is very straightforward.

The reason you’ll want to start here is you need to understand how volatile your current portfolio is. Without knowing how volatile your portfolio is, how will you know if the stock you’re about to buy is a good idea? How will you know if it’s a good fit?

You see, most people take on way too much risk without even knowing it, but…

… it’s not their fault! You won’t know how volatile your portfolio is just by looking at it. Sure you may have an idea based on the stocks you’re buying, but do you truly know how volatile it really is? The truth is, not even your broker has access to the volatility measurements inside TradeStops..

Not knowing how volatile your portfolio is can lead to catastrophic losses and in reality, it doesn’t have to be that way. Especially when you have a tool like TradeStops available to you.

You see, TradeStops can reveal hidden volatility with the click of a button.

When you sign up for access, all you have to do is log in to your account with your username and password.

Once you’re in, you’ll see a menu bar up at the top that looks like this:

From here, you will first click on the menu option labeled “Research”, shown here highlighted and with an arrow pointing to it.

Once you click on the “Research” button, you’ll then click on “VQ Analyzer”. This is the tool you’ll use to determine your portfolio VQ. “VQ” stand for Volatility Quotient. This number is essentially a percentage of volatility.

So, for example, the Volatility Quotient, or VQ, of the S&P is roughly 11%. What this means is that on any given day, the volatility of the S&P is around 11%.

With this tool, you’ll be able to instantly see how volatile your portfolio is compared to the S&P.

    Step #2:

    Select one or all of your portfolios


    When you click on the “VQ Analyzer” option, you’ll be taken to a page that looks something like this:

    Once you’re on this screen, you can select one of your portfolios, or all of them. Now keep in mind, your portfolios can be entered manually, or you can simply let TradeStops synchronize your accounts.

    With your portfolios already loaded, you can first look at your overall portfolio volatility. For example, on this screen, you can see that the volatility across all of the portfolios in this account is 13.58%.

    If you recall above, the S&P has a VQ of around 11% so this portfolio is close. However, you can lower it even further by using some of the tools I’ll show you a bit later.

    And just like that, with a few clicks, you know how volatile your portfolio is.

    Congratulations! You now have information that not 1 in 100 individual investors have!

    While this is an important step, if you have more than one account, you’ll also want to see how volatile they all are individually, using the steps I just showed you.

    Simply click on the dropdown arrow (as shown above) and select one of your other accounts.

    In this next example, I’m choosing a Vanguard IRA account:

    Clearly, this account is much more volatile, coming in at a VQ of 54.68%.

    And this is why it’s crucial you run the VQ Analyzer on all your individual accounts, and not just look at your overall volatility.

    Remember, this tool simply shows your current volatility. If you have a particular account where you’re speculating, and are ok with higher volatility, that’s fine.

    The point is to understand how volatile your accounts really are without the guesswork. Most people have no idea and therefore, they load up on stocks that are much too volatile and expose themselves to truly dangerous levels of risk.

    Now, let’s say you’re surprised to see such high volatility, what can you do? Let’s continue with the next step…

     Quick Note: TradeStops automatically syncs with

    over two dozen brokerages, including:

    Step #3:

    Use the Risk Rebalancer Tool


    One of the amazing things about TradeStops is that, with just a click of a button, you can instantly rebalance your portfolio to reduce your volatility.

    Keep in mind, TradeStops DOES NOT log into your brokerage account to make the changes. It only suggests what to change and what to do.

    It’s up to you to go in and actually make the modifications.

    That said, let me show you how it works.

    When you log in to your account (if you don’t already have TradeStops, be sure to join before this offer closes tonight at midnight), you’ll want to click on the “Research” menu item, and select “Risk Rebalancer”.

    Here’s what that looks like:

    Once you’re inside the Risk Rebalancer tool, it will analyze your account and show you what you can do to have a more balanced portfolio.

    Here’s what it looks like:

    As you can see from the example above, with just a click of a button, you get a detailed outline of suggestions and changes.

    In the example, the Risk Rebalancer tool specifies which investments should have an increased position. Those are represented in the “Rebalanced Shares” column and have a green font color.

    At the same time, the Risk Rebalancer also suggests that I sell 651 shares of a much more volatile stock (represented in red).

    Of course, you can choose to ignore the suggestions and maintain your portfolio as is, but wouldn’t you agree that knowing this information greatly increases your confidence?

    Step #4:

    Use the Position Size Calculator


    When you find a recommendation you want to act on, one of the biggest questions that gets asked is “How much should I buy?”

    Well, by using TradeStops, you now have access to a mathematically superior method of answering that question.

    See, instead of basing it on some arbitrary number of shares, the Position Size Calculator takes into account the VQ of the stock itself PLUS… how much you’re willing to risk.

    Let me show you how it works.

    First you’ll go to the “Research” menu and select “Position Size” as shown below:

    When you get to the Position Size Calculator, you’ll enter some basic information.

    Start by entering the ticker symbol and TradeStops will automatically fill in the most recent closing price for your stock. Feel free to edit the entry price if you need to.

    Next, you select how much you’re willing to risk on this one recommendation. You can select one of the predefined options, or you can click on “Custom” and enter whatever amount you feel comfortable risking.

    Finally, you can select which risk point to use. You can use the VQ%, a trailing stop, or even a hard stop price.

    Below you can see an example:

    In the example above, I used Tesla – a stock some of you may own or follow.

    Important Note: This is NOT a recommendation.

    If I’m interested in buying Tesla, but can only afford to risk $1,000 and wanted to base my risk on how volatile Tesla is, I should only buy 13 shares.

    Can you see how powerful this information is?

    Without having to do any extensive mathematical analysis, you can quickly — with a push of a button — discover how big of a position size you can take based on YOUR risk tolerance.

    This is custom designed to fit you!

    But… what would happen if instead of Tesla, I was interested in Johnson & Johnson?

    Well, let’s take a look:

    Important Note: This is NOT a recommendation.

    In this example, instead of only investing $2,715 buying 13 shares of Tesla, I can invest $8,234 buying 72 shares of Johnson & Johnson.

    And remember, in both of these cases, I’m risking the same amount!

    In both examples, I’m risking $1,000 but because Johnson & Johnson is much less volatile, I can afford to invest more capital.

    I’m sure you’ll agree, this is an extremely powerful tool to have. When you use it, you’ll be able to invest more of your capital, keep your portfolio volatility low, and still be able to responsibly invest in more volatile stocks.

    Final Comments


    I hope you got to see some of the powerful features inside of TradeStops and how they can help you be a drastically better investor.

    And really, this is only part of everything you get.

    I haven’t mentioned what I call the “Magic Calculator” which allows you to enter a ticker symbol and how much you’d like to invest.

    Once you enter this information, you’ll automatically get a report outlining how much of your capital is at risk, the VQ of the stock you’re analyzing, and whether or not the stock has hit a stop based on the most recent highs.

    I also didn’t get into the “Stop Loss Analyzer” tool, or the “Stock State Indicator” both of which give you further information into individual stocks you may be interested in. With these tools you’ll be able to answer questions like:

    • Is right now a good time to buy this stock?
    • Is this stock in an uptrend or a downtrend?
    • When's the last time this stock triggered a stop, and what is my risk by getting in now?

    I also didn’t get into the massive amounts of data TradeStops has access to. Currently, I pay well into the six figures a year on data alone. There’s just no way for the average investor to have access to this type of historical data.

    I truly believe no other tool like it exists anywhere else. Using TradeStops alone gives you a tremendous edge on the market and on all the other investors not using these advanced tools.

    I hope you take me up on this very special offer. It’s a way for you to have a full two years of access to TradeStops Premium at the lowest rate we’ve ever made it available.

    And when you join today, you’ll be presented with an opportunity to join as a President's Club member through this special offer I've worked out with Adam. But don't delay, this offer will expire soon.

    Hope to see you join the TradeStops family today.
