If one of your trades has not yet been terminated (by the time you report it as a "Best Trade), should I try to follow it?

Our "Best Trade" feature is designed primarily to teach you how to use our volume indicators. We do not wish to suggest that you should mimic these actual trades, even if they are still open. Only follow an open trade if you are aware of the risks and if you have access to real-time intraday volume charts (you can get these from Whether or not we leave a particular "Best Trade" open is always contingent on our volume indicators. For logistical reasons, we cannot always send our newsletters out the same day we close a specific trade. Even if we could, it would often be too late for you to establish a position, since the market can reverse with very little or no notice following a significant volume signal. For these reasons, we strongly advise you against following an open position on our "Best Trade" feature. Should you wish to do so regardless, please assure that you have access to real-time intraday volume charts.

In the following, we would like to show you the motivating factors that led us to take above trades. For this purpose, we have created what we call a 'Table of Trade Motivators':
