Recent trades example

The primary objective is to identify potential stocks before they experience a breakout and make it onto traditional lists. I aim to uncover tactical entries that boast exceptional risk/reward profiles.

Presenting a comprehensive chart markup detailing a recent $IONQ trade I took in 2023:

  • Achieved a +25% gain on the CORE trade.

  • Secured a +12% gain on the ADD trade.

Given the market's PTMM FULL GREEN signal, I opted for a structured take-profit approach rather than de-risking the trade at 2 & 3R, a practice I'm also currently implementing.

Alex’s recent performance using the PT system

Many of you know that recent months have posed challenges compared to the favorable market conditions of 2020 and early 2021. My trading approach revolves around adept risk management, tailoring it to the prevailing market conditions.

Even amidst one of the most demanding market environments, I've successfully grown the trading account while containing drawdowns to less than 10%.

  • 2020 = +378%

  • 2021 = +92%

  • 2022 = +30.8%

  • 2023 (YTD) = TBD

This accomplishment brings my compounded returns to over 1000% since the commencement of 2020. I view this as a significant achievement, as tangible evidence that the system I'm endeavoring to impart to all of you is effective.

Its success is evident not only in an upward-trending market but, notably, during corrective market phases.
