Air Products and Chemicals is founded in 1940 during World War 2 with the idea of producing and selling industrial gasses.

Air Products and Chemicals’ shares are defying gravity, and don’t seem to be affected by the great uncertainty surrounding the world.

Paying attention to the indicators used, buying its shares for a position trade is ripe.

What about the shares of Rivian Automotive?

Is the time to trade its shares ripe too?

Unfortunately, it isn’t.

Rivian Automotive’s shares have been in a downtrend but the indicators that form the TradersGPS (TGPS) are suggesting that this bearish move could be short-lived.

Hence, it isn’t the time to short its shares.

There’s a very important concept I’d like to bring to your attention – the use of a stop loss.

Because the stock market doesn’t behave according to our instructions and hopes, it’s advisable to place a stop loss level to protect your trading capital, should an unexpected event occur.

Trading stocks without a proper system can be highly risky. This is why TGPS was created. The indicators will help you determine if a stock is ready for action to be taken. You won’t have to feel in the dark and make wild guesses.

1 Simple Strategy To Reap Explosive Profits This Year (2023):

2022 by far has been one of the toughest years to trade in the past 5 years.

Lots of Singaporeans who dabble in trading or investments have suffered badly this year.

From inflation, interest rates, Ukraine war, financial tensions between US & China, and most recently, the dramatic crypto meltdown…

We’ve seen nothing short of constant volatility and a persistently declining stock market this year.

Many people I know have incurred 5 to even 6 figures losses and others are holding on to 20-80% unrealized losses.

It’s unfortunate to see that the goals of becoming financially independent to provide better lives for their family have turned into losses for many.

Yet, as a matter of fact, all these losses could have been easily prevented and turned into profits instead if these people had the right knowledge.

Having the right knowledge, and having a tested and proven methodology for trading strong stocks

– This is exactly what helped me and over 5000+ of my students to end the year with decent gains in our portfolio despite the odds stacked against our favor.

Within our SMT community, we use a really simple yet powerful 3-step system that allows us to identify and capitalize on strong stocks.

This is why even amidst the poor performing market this year, we are still able to extract extensive profits from the market – by identifying ‘hidden gem’ opportunities.

And if we are able to reap decent gains in such a bad market this year, think about how immense the profit potential would be like in 2023…

Especially when the market is poised to trend stronger upwards in 2023 and the number of opportunities would be greater than ever.

With that said, it is extremely important to know what to do and how to best take advantage of the markets in 2023 while maintaining a really low risk.
