     All what you can do in such uncertain market is a protection of your capital. This can be done very simply: place stop orders. We are showing in our reviews every time where to place stop orders when you open the position.
    If stock prices go up, you lift the stop orders.
    We have noticed a very interesting thing. Indexes fluctuate very drastically. Meantime the share’s prices fluctuate moderate. Therefore, we believe that falls in the markets, articles’ headlines and worried TV news reports should not disturb you.
    Our business is not to submit markets’ and some analysts’ mood. Our business is to protect our investment. And you already know how to do it.
    If you need more information on how to protect your investments, please feel free to contact us directly or sign up for our newsletters.
     
    Good luck!

    STOP ORDERS are used by newbies and the uniformed. A "stop order" converts to a market order when it is triggered. In high volatility situations you are nearly guaranteed to get sold WAY below your stop. Sometimes market manipulators will use a swoop and scoop technique to "harvest" all of the foolish stop-loss orders. If you want to REAL protection on a position sell CALL options or buy PUT options (or both). Stop orders should be avoided - there are better and saner ways.

    Author’s reply » Sure, I can agree with you. But there is no problem for our trading strategy. In our strategy these "foolish stop-loss orders" become "smart stop-loss orders".
    I know CALL and PUT options strategy too. It's good and works well. Traders must to choose one he or she likes.
    Good luck!
