WELCOME TO STAUNCH TRADING

You have just taken a great stride into furthering your trading journey

There are a few simple steps required to get you setup to receive access to the private feed.

Please take the time to read through through Steps 1 through 4. Remember the more informed you are the better.

The Staunch trading service is sourced from a private feed. Once you have membership you are required to request access via twitter. Staunch’s private account is different from his public account.

MORNING WATCHLIST
Morning Watch-list will contain option structures Staunch is watching before the market open. There are cases in which the market or stock bias changes and you will see a different entry then the options listed pre-market. We do the best to prepare members but as traders we must adjust to market changes at times during live trading hours.

TRADE EXITS
Staunch strives to assist by providing one to two exit points on a trade. The first will be a conservative target/exit and the second will be an aggressive exit, both will be alerted and labeled with “TARGET HIT”. Majority of trades are completed at the first target. After the first target has been hit Staunch will move the “STOP” on the position to near the original “ENTRY” price. When the second target hits the trade is completed. There will only be two exit maximum.

Targets / exit points have the ability to change if the team analyzes a better profit scenario or a change in the action. If so, we will provide an update to the private feed.

If, when and where a trader exits a position will always be up to their own discretion. Conservative traders may deem it necessary to exit trades early and aggressive traders may find it lucrative to hold and risk a position for a larger reward. Neither are wrong or right, this decision comes down to an individuals risk tolerance and performance goals.

TRADE STOPS
Staunch will always look to stop at the stop price listed in the entry trade. There may be times in which a trade exit is made before or after the stop price. Or in some cases the stop price may be adjusted according to trading model. In any of these cases the feed will send a notification providing the update.

TRADE ENTRY
If, when and where a trader enters a position is always up to each trader’s own discretion. Note that the Staunch Model will always look to exit at the listed stop if the trade goes against. Keep in mind the spread in between the stop level and the target price is the trade.
