Frequently Asked Questions

What is StockSignals?

StockSignals is an independent signal service for members. Members receive a signal if a stock probably starts a new trend up or down. To help traders and make it more easy, members can copy our option trades.

Why is it different from other sites?
There are lots of charting websites with too many technical indicators. It takes a lot of time and effort to understand the value of these indicators and it keeps you glued to the screens all day. There are also a lot of sites with fundamental analysis like P/E and Analist ratings with stock recommendations, but they are mainly too bullish. StockSignals.com combines the information of technical and fundamental analysis of analysts to signal members if a stock probably starts a new trend up or down. We combine these data into our own proprietary algorithm to create buy and sell signals.

Other sites don't show their track record (because in most cases it's not good). We show every trade we make and our profit or loss for that trade.

We make it easy for members to alert if a stock starts a possible new trend based on a combination of analyst revisions and technical indicators.
Furthermore, members could decide to copy our option trades. 

What do I get as member of StockSignals?
We scan Wallstreet (Nasdaq, Dow Jones, SP& 500 companies) for new swing trade signals. A signal is when the stock price is probably starting a new trend up or down. Our trades have a duration of 1-14 days. We send between 0 and 10 new signals per month, depending on market conditions.

If we made an option trade, we send you which kind of option trade we have made and our stop loss and price target. So to make it even more easy you could just mirror our trades.

At the end of each trade you receive by e-mail our profit or loss.

What are the profits or losses on your signals?
In uptrends with stocks profits can go up to 5% per swing trade. On option trades profits can go up to 100% per trade!
 
There will also be trades with losses. Because we set a strict stop loss per trade, losses are manageable. We recommend to use good Money Management.

How much money do I need to use your service?
I does not matter how big your account is, this service works for small and big accounts. But still remember to allocate a reasonable account, as stocks and options still remain high risk investments due to unforeseen (political) news. Paper trade if you are a beginner or new. 

Can I use stocks and options ?
If we have a signal the price will probably go up, you can decide to buy stocks or buy call options or sell put options. If we signal a stock will probably go down, you could buy put options.  As a member you can see which options we have bought.

Do you guarantee to make profit each trade?
We strongly recommend to set a Stop Loss and Profit Target on each trade. We are an independent information service, not a broker or bank. We don't guarantee each trade will make a profit. Trading stocks or options is a high risk investment. We can't predict facts like news and politics. Our methodology is to search for 1:2 Risk Reward trades, meaning you risk 1 USD to make a profit of 2 USD. In this way you could make profit with a minimum of 50% winning trades.

What is the pricing to become a member?
The first month is a free trial month. Our monthly membership fee is 199 USD per month. We renew automatically your membership monthly. You can cancel your membership by e-mailing to support@stocksignals.com. When you cancel you pay till the end of the current period. 

How do I receive the signals?
After login you see the latest signals. You receive an e-mail when a trend is probably starting and an e-mail if it's probably over. We also inform you about our trade.

What kind of stocks you alert on?
We alert on stocks of big Wallstreet companies listed at NYSE, NASDAQ or Dow Jones. We choose for bigger companies, because options and stocks of big companies are more liquid, so you can buy and sell them more easily with a good bid and ask spread.

Examples : Google, Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, Alibaba, Amazon, Verizon, VISA, Walt Disney, McDonalds, Nike, Morgan Stanley, Starbucks, JP Morgan, Tesla, Paypal, etc

We don't send signals for forex, cryptocurrencies or penny stocks. 

How do I trade?
You need to have an account at a bank or broker and allowed to trade on stocks and options. Search for a bank or broker in your country. Big brokers for stocks and options in the United States are Ameritrade, Etrade and Interactive Brokers. If you are new we encourage you to start paper trading. 

Can you explain quickly how to trade options and what your trade means?
The advantage of trading options over stocks is the possibility of higher gain in shorter time and also the possibility to profit when the stockprice goes down.
We signal you which option we have bought.

Example of an option trade : LULU C 18 JAN 2019 135,00 @ 12,50

LULU = Ticker (company Lululemon)

C = Call Option (if you buy a call option, you expect price will go up)

18 JAN 2019 = expiry date, after that date the option has no value, so sell it before this date. We recommend to use average 5 weeks from today when entering a trade  due to time decay mostly when arriving at expiry date.

135,00 = Strike Price. In your trading platform you see a lot of strike prices. We recommend to buy at the money options (Actual price is around Strike Price) or slightly in the money options (Current price is a bit above the Strike Price). This is because of high possible reward.

@12,50 = The price (USD) per option. 1 option contract is always 100 options. So your investment is 100 x 12,50 = 1250 USD plus brokerage fees (usually between 1 and 3 USD per contract, so around 2 USD).  Option prices change every millisecond during market opening hours and depends on bid and ask prices at this moment. Bid is what people are willing to pay, Ask is what sellers are asking for the option contract. When Bid and Ask meet, then there is a trade.

When you sell your option later for let's say 25 USD per option, then your profit is 25 x 100 = 2500 minus 2 brokerage fees buying minus 2 fee selling minus 1250 investment = 1246 USD profit on an investment of 1250. The stock was up for let's say 5%, but the call option 99%. This is what we mean by leverage.

Educate yourself wisely about option trading, there are a lot of books and sites about option trading. We are here to make it easier for you. Paper trade at least 3 months if you are new to options trading! Choose a trading platform with low option brokerage fees!

Or just trades stocks 
If options are too complex for you, no problem, you can still use StockSignals.com !

You can buy stocks when we send a buy signal. But do nothing when we send a sell signal as you can only profit trading stocks when prices go up.
