Fully automated and based on our score system.
These portfolios are built by using Stockinvest.us own AutomaticPortfolios software. These portfolios work by always picking stocks based on the scores from our scoring system. The candidates are then filtered depending on the setting of the portfolio. Once the ticker is in the portfolio, then it will be sold if the score turns to the negative side or the stop-loss condition is met.
Stop-loss is extremely crucial for the portfolio. It is based on the stop-loss suggestions generated by our calculations, and it's being re-calculated on a daily basis. The rule of thumb for the stop-loss is that it can't go down, only rise up. By doing so, your potential gains are secured against sudden drops in the shared prices.
If you want to follow these portfolios you should always check the "candidate" list. There you will find the upcoming picks. Due to the portfolios being updated only a single time per day (after the exchanges close) we will need to re-calculate our new stop-loss before trading starts the upcoming day.
As our portfolios are based on the end-of-the-day prices, the purchase may differ from your own calculation. Once a stock in the portfolio is sold you should buy the first candidate that's in the "candidate" list. You may achieve a different price than this system, which will use the end-of-the-day price for the new candidate in the portfolio.
