Speaker:         Norman Hallet


Time:              7:00 pm        

Topic:             7 Effective Ways to Place Stops (and One Way Not To)

 In this 90 minute presentation (followed by 30 minutes of questions), Mr. Hallett will tackle the all-important area of the proper placement of stops.


He believes that matching the type of trader that you are, with respect to your own trading style and personality should dictate the way you place stops and defend against protracted losses.


The proper trailing of stops and when stops should not be used, will also be discussed.


After laying out the 7 stop-placement techniques, Mr. Hallett will show how they apply to various Simple Trading Plans, taken from his Simple Trading Plan of the Month Club.
