Buying And Selling Stocks Rule 1

Diversification is a key principle in investing and one of the most important rules for novice traders to master. It involves dividing your investment capital into equal parts or amounts and spreading it across different stocks or other assets.

 Investing Money:

For example, if you have a portfolio of $100,000, you would divide it into ten equal parts, each consisting of $10,000. This helps to spread the risk and ensures that you are not too heavily invested in any one stock or sector. These lots can then be divided into smaller sub-lots depending on market conditions. For example, if you are following a strategy that involves opening multiple positions, you could divide each $10,000 part into 3-5 sub-lots, with each sub-lot ranging from $2,000 to $3,300

It’s important to note that you should never commit all your funds in one shot, as this increases your risk. Instead, divide your funds into smaller lots and deploy them gradually, as stated above. When we issue instructions to purchase a stock, we will always indicate how many sub-lots should be deployed.  For example, deploy 1/5th in the 40-45 range and the second 1/5th in the 37-39 range.

Another key principle is never to open a position at market price but at the best possible price. Our risk-to-reward models make this determination.  This way, you can increase the chances of a profitable outcome while minimizing the risk. It’s also important to have a good understanding of the markets and the individual securities you’re investing in and to have a risk management plan in place.

When it comes to managing your portfolio, it’s important to have a plan in place for how to deploy new cash that comes in. One approach is to divide the new cash equally into the ten existing main lots. For example, if you received an additional $20,000 and already have ten lots of $10,000 each, you could divide the new cash equally into those ten lots, increasing each lot by $2,000.

Another approach is to create two new lots of 10K each with the new cash. If you received an additional $20,000 and have 1o lots of $10,000 each, you could create two new lots of $10,000 each. Now instead of ten main lots of 10K, you would have 12 lots of 10K.

It is always a good practice to maintain some cash as it provides flexibility and liquidity to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities that may arise unexpectedly. This is particularly important when the market is in an overbought range. After it lets out some steam, you will be in a position to invest in undervalued securities.

If you fall in the low to medium-risk categories, it is advisable to maintain 20%-25% cash in your portfolio. This allows you to take advantage of opportunities that may arise while still preserving your capital and limiting your risk.

How to determine when the market is trading in the slightly overbought ranges?

You can use technical indicators such as the MACD and RSI to determine when the market is in slightly overbought ranges. These indicators have ranges of 0 to 100 and 0 to 1, respectively. When the indicator trades in the 60% range, conservative traders should build a 10-15% cash position. When it’s trading in the 80 to 90 per cent range, cash can compromise as much as 25% of their holdings. is a good resource to use for finding indicators and educational materials. Additionally, it offers more indicators and historical data than other websites, such as, and it’s cheaper if you opt for the premium service.

When a portfolio has the word “Hold” in the comments section, it means that no new positions should be taken in it. Until the word “hold” is removed, no new money should be invested in that position. It is important only to enter a stock or options trade when it is trading at or close to one of the suggested entry points. If a stock trades above the suggested entry points, it is best to avoid the trade until new instructions are issued. However, if the stock is trading at or below one of the suggested entry points, it may be a good opportunity to enter a trade with one lot. For example, if we have two positions in company XY, one at 45 and one at 36, and the stock is trading at 51, then avoid this play unless new instructions are issued.  However, if XY trades at 40, you can deploy one lot as it is still trading below one of the suggested entry points.

Buying And Selling Stocks Rule 2

Allocate the same amount of  money to each position

Millionaire Mindset: Profit Taking Guide & Trading Suggestions

When investing, it is important to allocate the same amount of funds to each position to maintain a balanced portfolio. This is a key principle for those with a millionaire mindset, as it promotes discipline and reduces risk. Never invest more in any one recommendation unless you are a seasoned trader or are knowingly willing to take on more risk. Most investors tend to lose money not due to bad choices but rather due to a lack of portfolio management skills. Therefore, spreading your money unevenly over your investments can lead to fast losses.

Tread Lightly With Options

Before getting into the options market, studying it extensively and paper trading is important. It is better to understand and master the concept of buying and selling stocks before venturing into options, as they can be a fast way to make money and a fast way to lose a lot also.

To minimize the risk, it is recommended not to dedicate more than 20% of your portfolio to options if you are not a professional options trader and not exceed 25% if you are. Novices should not allocate more than 15%. Additionally, suppose your options portfolio surges and represents more than 40% of your portfolio. In that case, it is advisable to take some money out and reassign it to lower-risk portfolios, except if you are dealing exclusively with selling cash-secured puts. When buying puts or calls, try not to invest more than 2%-3% of the money set aside for options trading into a single option position.

Options can be a safe investment instrument, especially when using strategies such as selling cash-secured puts and covered calls. These strategies do not involve using margin or speculation, unlike buying calls and puts. When using these strategies, the 25% rule does not apply. It’s important to remember that a millionaire mindset only takes risks with money they can afford to lose, so it’s recommended never to invest your principal money into options. Instead, only use profits from other investments to trade speculative options like buying calls and puts. However, non-speculative strategies such as selling cash-secured puts and selling covered calls are an exception to this rule.

 The Value Of Stops

stop limit orderIt is important to use limit stops instead of standard stops to avoid potential loss when placing stop orders. A standard stop order will be triggered as soon as the stock reaches the stop price, and it will be treated as a market order, which means that the stock will be sold at the current market price, which could be lower than the stop price. On the other hand, a limit stop order will only be triggered when the stock trades below the stop price, and the order will be filled at the stop price or better. However, some brokers may not offer this option; in this case, you should consider using a mental stop or switching to a broker that does offer this option.


Explanation of  a stop-limit order

A stop-limit order is a combination of two order types: a stop price and a limit price. A stop price is set by a trader to trigger the limit order, which is the order to buy or sell at a specific price or better. For example, if a trader enters a stop price of $25 with a limit price of $24.50, the order will trigger when the price falls to $25, but it will only fill at $24.50 or better. This means that if the price falls through the limit price before the entire order is filled, the trader may end up with remaining shares at a greater loss than anticipated.

It’s important to note that this type of order could trigger but not fill depending on the limit price entered, so traders need to be aware of that risk. For a more in-depth understanding of this type of order, it is recommended to read educational materials such as “Understanding Limit, Stop Limit and Market Orders” to understand the nuances of this type of order.


Set A Profit Target

It is important to note that the following strategy is optional and it is intended for traders who want to take their skills to the next level. In any case, entry and exit instructions will always be provided for every position in the portfolio, so traders will never be left in the dark

Selling Stocks once the profit target is hitWhen setting a target, it is important to consider what you are comfortable with and stick to it. Some traders may be happy with 20% gains, while others may be satisfied with 15%. It’s important not to force a target on yourself, but at least for half of your position. It’s also important to set a target as soon as a position is opened, as changing it later can lead to uncertainty and can turn a good trader/investor into a “pig” who always gets slaughtered.

It is important to remember that while we do our best to provide the best entry price, it’s also important to pay attention to the exit strategy. It’s important to remember that nobody cares more about your money than you. Additionally, our profit strategy might not align with your own personal goals and risk tolerance.

It’s important to note that the higher the profit target, the more volatile the ride and the higher the risk. If you hit your targets earlier, consider it a bonus and take the time to enjoy other aspects of life. A millionaire mindset involves having both a profit target and a loss target and giving equal attention to both, as it is an essential part of the investing cycle.

There Is No Place for Emotions In The Market

Selling Stocks and emotions

One should always remember that the market has no mercy for emotional investors. Fear and euphoria are two of the worst emotions to have when investing. Emotional traders nearly always end up losing money. Understanding the basic concepts of mass psychology can greatly enhance your trading experience.

A millionaire mindset involves refusing to allow emotions to enter the equation. When emotions drive trading decisions, it can lead to losing money. It’s crucial to trade with a calm mind and avoid making impulsive decisions. As the saying goes, “revenge is best served cold,” which also applies to trading. Traders who act impulsively and emotionally often end up broke, unable to stay in the game. The stock market can be considered a war; you may lose several battles, but with a clear head and a long-term perspective, you can still win the war.

Explanation of the Color Codes used for Pending Stock plays.

In summary, the colour coding system used in the Trend and ETF Trend portfolios indicates the level of risk associated with a stock or ETF play, with green being the lowest risk and brick red or bright orange being the highest risk. Before moving on to the secondary candidates, new subscribers are advised to focus on the primary candidates in the Trend and ETF Trend portfolios, which are associated with lower risk. The primary candidate sections of the Trend and ETF Trend portfolios are considered to have the lowest overall risk.

Portfolios associated with the lowest risk are the primary candidate’s section in the Trend portfolio and the primary candidate’s section under the ETF Trend Portfolio.

The stop-loss strategy is “end-of-day stops”, meaning the stop loss is only triggered if the stock closes at or below the suggested stop price. If the stock closes at or below the stop price, a GTC limit sell order is placed at or close to the suggested stop price the next day. It’s worth noting that most of the plays tend to drift upwards after the stop is hit, so the exit price is usually better than the stop price. However, if the stock gaps down and closes well below the stop, a GTC limit sell order is placed at the best possible price. The average exit price is determined by collecting data from subscribers.

Newbies and novice investors should focus on developing patience and discipline when it comes to buying and selling stocks. Chasing stocks often results in paying more for them and reduces the chances of making a profit. The approach used by the Tactical Investor is to identify stocks with strong setups and purchase them at the best possible price.
