NOTE: Customers who subscribe to TradeStops after April 29, 2015 will have their alerts automatically added to their synchronized positions. The alerts will be either a VQ Trailing Stop for Basic members or a Stock State Indicators for Plus and Premium members. A 25% trailing stop will be added to positions that do not have enough historical data to calculate a VQ or SSI.
