When to Exit Your Long Positions

by: Market Folly

MarketClub just posted a new video examining the S&P 500 and in it they've outlined two key levels in the market. They highlight that while the trend is up, you still have to be cautious and know when to switch from long to short. So, they've identified a level at which to exit longs (S&P 1072) and then they've identified a separate level which would signify a trend break where you would want to then get short (S&P 991). These are obviously important areas to watch because the trend is your friend... until it's not. Hear what they have to say in their S&P 500 video.

Use those levels to help you place your stops or know when to exit your longs as the market continues to melt up higher. It's never a bad thing to have an exit strategy in place.
