What is an Entry signal?
An Entry signal refers to the price at which an investor buys a security. Entry signals, which are a component of a trading strategy, are used to minimize investment risk and remove emotion from trading decisions. A good entry signal is often the first step in achieving a successful trade. Entry signals are represented as either long position ("cyan"), short position ("magenta"), or exit. The term long position describes a purchase with the expectation that it will rise in value, while a short position describes a purchase with the expectation that it will drop in value. The trading signals we provide are based on sound strategies and proven techniques.
What is a Peak Exit signal?
Just as we have signals for entering trades, there are signals for exiting them as well. These signals hopefully guarantee maximum profit. Exit signals can also be used to limit losses from trades that go against the trading strategy.
How do Trend Bars help?
Trend bars reveal the direction and patterns of a security. As you study the trend bars, you can pick up patterns from time to time, especially when comparing them to the pricing charts.
Why a Price Gap?
This strategy is great for protecting traders from bad trades by cushioning the price, which reduces risk. Some trades have been known to immediately turn against you after getting filled. Proper price gaps, as well as the ST-1 and ST-2 indicators, help protect the trader from this behavior. Stronger Trades' trade signals include appropriate price gaps that we feel protect your investment.
What is a Stop?
A stop is a limit order that instructs the brokerage you trade with to limit your losses if the trade turns against you. To learn more about stops, sign up for our Trading Classes.
This is very important and is the main reason to trade. There are many strategies for taking profits. Some of these techniques are explored in our Trading Classes.
I only see a Peak Exit signal. Where is the Entry signal?
If you have a Basic Trader account, you may have missed the entry signal and will have to wait for the next one. Basic Traders are only able to view the most recent signal.
If you have a Premium Trader account, below the price are the Trend Bars. Touch or use your mouse to hover over any of the Trend Bars to see the details of any entry or peak exit signal from the beginning of the trade.
What's the difference between Basic and Premium Trader accounts?
Premium Traders' trade signals are updated automatically and tend to be more successful because of it, while Basic Traders must work (click) for each signal and are more likely to miss them. Premium Traders have access to E-Mini and Interest Rate signals, the Trend Bars (which indicate the direction the symbol is trending), and Basic Traders do not. Premium Traders also have access to Multi-View GRID pages, trading classes, and custom alerts, while Basic Traders do not. To learn more, click here.
What does the ST-1 mean on the signal page?
ST-1 measures the strength or potential of a signal to maintain its current direction. The higher the percentage, the stronger the trade signal. Sometimes it is wise to wait for a signal to gain strength before trading.
What does the ST-2 mean on the signal page?
ST-2 measures the flow of the trade signal. When the signal crosses zero, it can indicate a shift in momentum either in your favor or against you. The value shown indicates the number of points by which the signal has moved away from zero.
What is the pie shaped object used for?
Whenever ST-2 crosses zero the pie shape is displayed.
What is a futures contract?
Futures are popular assets among day traders and large institutional investors. A futures contract is an agreement between two parties, where the buyer agrees to purchase an asset at a certain price and date in the future, and the seller agrees to provide the asset at that price. The price of a contract varies but is typically less than a few dollars per contract for Micros and less than $20 per contract for some E-Minis. By buying one or more contracts, you can increase your earning potential, but this also increases your risk.

Why do I see a popup that says "Stronger Trades is audio enabled?"
If you refresh your page using the browser's reload button, this popup will sometimes appear to ensure that your browser isn't blocking the audio notifications.
