Trade Alert: Marching Forward: Six New Positions

Today, we look forward to the end of February with markets trading near all-time highs across the board. With March ushering in a fresh start, the Stock Trader Alert system has responded with six new positions.

Before we dive into the new trades, it’s worth pointing out that our exchange-traded fund (ETF) continues to hit new highs. February was a burner for the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE Arca: SPY), which added roughly 3.9% for the month and is now up nearly 10% overall. (For more information on returns, see our backtesting data and the full portfolio history.)

As for those trades making it past the whipsaw rule this week, we are looking at six new portfolio holdings, which means saying goodbye to six existing holdings.
Remember that to fully participate in this portfolio, you need to purchase all 10 stock positions and the ETF position.
