Bill Poulos has released the ETF Profit Driver course to assist individual investors and traders to incorporate Exchange Traded Funds products into their investment portfolio. The course is professionally presented, utilizing cutting edge educational software. Students are shown four methods to enter the market at times when the probability of profitability is high, then implement a money management plan to reduce risk and take profits at appropriate times.
Exchange Traded Funds offer investors and traders many advantages over both individual stocks as well as traditional mutual funds. Because Exchange Traded Funds are "baskets" of stocks, they provide the investor with immediate diversification that is not afforded by stock in a single company. With that diversification come a reduction in risk.
Mutual funds also provide diversification through their ownership of multiple stocks. They are not exchange traded, however. This means that your buy and sell orders will not be filled until sometime after the markets have closed. Exchange Traded Funds are traded on exchanges, so you are able to open and close positions during market hours allowing you to make effective use of stop and limit orders.
Four specific methods are used to identify trading opportunities. Each method is highly selective and designed to only pursue the best trade setups. As such, it is not uncommon to see very few, or even no, "buy" signals generated. When an entry signal is triggered, there is a high probability that the particular ETF will be enjoying a ride on an upward trend.
Each of the four trading methods is designed to trade the market in concert with a developing or existing upward trend. Short selling is not part of this method, although you are able to "get short" the market through the use of negatively correlated Exchange Traded Funds. A negatively correlated ETF is one that moves opposite the market, so when the market is in a downward trend one of these "short" Exchange Traded Funds will rise in value.
Once you understand the nature of market trends, you will have an appreciation for each of the four trading methods incorporated into ETF Profit Driver. The first method attempts to identify and jump aboard a newly developing trend when it first breaks out. Other methods look for safe points in the market to buy ETF while it is in the trend and when it has corrected following a correction.
Managing your risk in any positions, whether an ETF or some other security, is critical to investing success. Unfortunately, most retail investors and traders fail to do this. ETF Profit Driver incorporates a high effective risk management system for each position, avoid unnecessary losses and taking profits at opportune times. The course is comprehensive in all respects, providing the ETF Profit Driver student with a complete trading system.
