It has been a wild ride in the markets lately, and for good reason. The S&P 500 index is having its worst week since 2008 and has entered “correction” territory, defined by a 10% decline from the highs.

And the coronavirus outbreak has spread from China to at least 50 countries around the world as of Feb. 28. An increase in cases in Italy, Iran, and South Korea have heightened concerns about the ability to contain the spread of the virus.

For Your Protection

While we can’t inoculate you against coronavirus, the TradeStops system can help protect you during this uncertain time with our alert system.

You might be used to receiving individual alerts, but given current market conditions, we’ve decided to update this for your protection. You will now receive a single consolidated alert report. This reduces the chance that your alerts could be delayed based on volume. And don’t worry; you won’t lose any of your alerts. Any triggered alert will be included in the consolidated report.

We encourage you to log in to your TradeStops account to review your portfolio in the meantime. And, of course, if you still prefer to receive individual alerts, you can change your settings back to reflect that preference.

Getting the Most from TradeStops

The TradeStops system is jam-packed with useful tools to help protect you in volatile times (like now) and during more peaceful times.

Taking advantage of all the features is easy, and here to help you is our Product Education Specialist, Marina Stroud. Marina has put together a comprehensive blueprint video that will help you learn all the aspects of TradeStops.

The video training is an hour long, so make sure to have your notebook and pencil ready to go! In just one hour, you’ll be able to learn about all the TradeStops tools and protect yourself in any kind of market.

Now, Some Fun

Recently, we conducted two feedback surveys: one for TradeSmith Trends and the other for our new TradeSmith Weekend Spotlight editorial. We picked one winner at random from each survey to receive a $500 TradeSmith credit. Our winners were N.N. and Charles H. Congratulations to both of them! Stay tuned for other survey opportunities. You, too, could win some TradeSmith credit.

We’ll also be attending the 22nd Annual Investment U Conference in Carlsbad, Calif., from April 16 to 18. If you’re a member of the Oxford Club and plan on attending, make sure to come see us. Our conference team loves to meet our subscribers.

Signing Off

We encourage you to log in to your TradeStops account and review your portfolio. Remember, we’ll default a single report with all your triggered alerts moving forward to ensure the most timely delivery possible, but you can always change them back if you’d like.

As the market — and the world — continues to struggle with uncertainty over the coronavirus, our TradeStops system can help you decide if now is the time to go to cash, or even search for hidden gems that aren’t exposed to — or might even benefit from — the virus. Whatever your decision, TradeStops can help you feel confident that you’re doing the right thing with your portfolio.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Customer Success team. Their email is [email protected]. While they can’t give individual investment advice, they’ll be happy to assist you with all aspects of our programs.

Until next time,

TradeSmith Team
