Knowing when not to trade against the market and force trades is an extremely important trading skill.  While we have worked to produce effective watch lists and deliver solid alerts, market dynamics can certainly make for a challenging trading week.  We sit on our hands when the market tells us too because we will not risk our own account wealth and we want the same for our subscribers.  Watching and waiting certainly tests our patience for sure!  This week we worked to identify Short Alerts and Gap Ideas for solid opening trades that proved profitable for our subscribers even when the market gave its gains back and traded lower. 

Protecting your account wealth is essential to successful trading!
