New Buy

New Buy

This morning, the Founders Group took a 50% long position at 433.25 on the SPY for Swing Trade Accounts. We used an S&P 500 Emini Futures at 4326.50 for leveraged accounts. Stops are set at 431.50 on the SPY and 4315 on the Futures.

We have Navigator Algorithm buy signals, the first of which came at 4267.50 on 2/25. As we would have been holding over the weekend in the middle of the Russia/Ukraine conflict, we waited for an entry on Monday. We took a position Monday, but we were stopped out just above break-even in yesterday’s volatility.

We now have a secondary buy signal this morning, and we will try once again. We will move our stops to break even as soon as possible.

The market is volatile and tricky and not for the faint of heart. From a psychological standpoint, the buys are among the most difficult of my career. That is why we affectionately call it the “puke point.” Stops are our saving grace.
