Letting Our Profits Run

After last week’s shake-up, the Stock Trader Alert system is sticking to its guns this week, as there are no new trades.

The market kicked off March with an impressive rally, and last week’s new positions quickly moved higher. However, there is some trepidation among traders due to geopolitical concerns surrounding North Korea and next week’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

Still, the Stock Trader Alert system is here to get you through the bumpy patches in the market as well as the bull rallies. Our exchange-traded fund (ETF) position in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE Arca: SPY) remains a solid winner, even though the S&P 500 Index is trading just off its all-time highs, and our held positions from last week continue to outperform.

Remember, if you have any concerns or questions about the Stock Trader Alert portfolio, I welcome your feedback. Be sure to drop me a line with your thoughts at stocktrader@banyanhill.com.

As we move into another week in the Stock Trader Alert portfolio, remember that to fully participate, you need to purchase all 10 stock positions and the ETF portion.

For a breakdown of current holdings and their allocations, see the table below.
