This page highlights each of the last several quarters of Closed out swing trades at SRP. We have outperformed the SP 500 Index well over 12 to 1 since 9/1/13 inception:
In 2016 we had 81 winning closed out Swing Trades and 24 Losers. A 77% success rate which is nearly unprecedented. More importantly we kept our losses contained in most cases when we were wrong and some of our winners were significant gainers.
We perform a thorough fundamental analysis on every stock we consider for a swing trade, and then if that passes our tests we then examine the technical patterns. The key to our success is maintaining this discipline in all market conditions. We also make sure to exit our positions without emotions involved, usually by selling 1/2 of the position on the way up and riding 1/2 a bit longer. We also set stops that are near the close of the market, and not intra-day which prevents us from needless losses due to normal volatility. The stops are strategically set based on behavioral patterns we apply to each trade, including 3x ETFs.
