A: There are a couple of reasons we wouldn’t want to have a trailing stop on a trade.
In some cases, we want to “average down” if the price falls, which allows us to do one of our favorite things: buy stocks we want at bargain prices.
In other cases, we’ve captured “free trades” – trades that doubled in value, effectively giving us the position for free, which we allow to run.
And in still other cases, like with the Rydex Inverse S&P Strategy Fund, the stock forms a core holding, and we don’t want to get stopped out on a dip.
The important thing to remember is that Money Map Report portfolio has multiple levels of protection built into it, to make it as sound as possible under the broadest range of market conditions. I don’t want to leave anything to chance, if I can help it, and I don’t want you to, either.
