written by reader Suggestions for trailing stop alert tools

By cunningham55, September 23, 2013

I am a relatively new Gumshoe Irregular although I have been investing in stocks for a few years. I must say the level of informed comment on this site is a breath a fresh air.
I live in the UK and use iii and h-l for my ISAs and SIPP respectively – I’m managing my own investments. I use advfn for monitoring the stocks the other 2 can’t reach. But none of these services give a trailing stop alert service. Advfn does have one, but the prices reset every day, which is not much good when wanting to track a historical trend. I came across tradestops.com, which seems to provide exactly what I’m looking for. At $149/year it seems reasonable value, especially compared with what it could save me by selling a falling stock.

Has anyone got experience of tradestops.com or can suggest alternatives?

Feedback much appreciated.

A good experienced person’s tip: Don’t allow yourself to turn out to be disappointed in case you lose cash in the start. Many individuals are angry as soon as the market place if things will not take off. It requires homework, background work, and knowledge before it is possible to invest like a specialist, so remember that prior to deciding to leave.

Hello, Michael,

I got in TradeStops for $119/year initially. Now I’m faced with annual renewal $299 fee. Seems steep to me considering my trading activity so I’m looking around for a comparable product at a reasonable price.

Let me know whether you’ve come across a similar service.
