SmartStops.net has a mission to empower investors, traders and advisors to improve their risk management, protecting profits and minimizing losses. SmartStops unique proprietary optimization engine is behind the scenes, intelligent adjusting risk daily for over 5000 stocks and ETFs. It was developed off of five decades of real market experience, led by industry veterans who wanted to democratize the approaches previously only available to institutions.
SmartStops main features include:
- An adjusting trailing stop approach that easily beats most of the technical analysis out there. It is a sophisticated combination of factors that look at both macro and micro (individual equities) scenarios. And will vary too based on macro trends. The aggressive approach is designed for the more active trader whereas the conservative approach is designed more for longer-term investors. Our hope is that we can help move the outdated philosophy of Buy & Hold into the 21st century paradigm of Buy & Protect.
- But SmartStops also knows that many DIY'ers don't like to implement "stops". Which is fine. As the key is to get alerted in a timely manner when Risk is truly "elevating" and continues to rise. Our Risk Alerting leads to a proper decision-making process on if a re-balancing action is needed for the long-term investor. Or if shorter-term investor or trader, then our risk alerting helps ensure that profits do not evaporate and losses are kept small.
- SmartStops delivers its Risk Alerts both in real-time email and instant to mobile if app is installed.
- How Much to Buy Calculator that is an enhanced position sizing calculator with our risk factor built-in.
SmartStops algorithms are constantly evolving. As our markets don't behave as they may have decades ago. Being aware of ever-changing risk is a fundamental practice needed by all stock market participants.
