As mentioned on recent MaR webinars, we are approaching the time of year where changes to our portfolio will begin. Some of our trailing stops will have been hit yesterday and but we have still not bought into this market. However, we are watching the volume levels and support levels to provide an indication of when we could look to enter.

Entry is not so important for long-term trades but knowing where the support zones are will help with looking for better entry points. Remember to stagger into new trades.

Let’s go trade!
