"Petr and Chris combine a unique skill set to produce trade ideas with attractive reward vs risk (usually at least 3:1) and good hit rates over a typically 1-3m time horizon. Backing for each trade ties to technicals, fundamentals, or more commonly both - and generally in US stocks or US ETFs. They are cognizant of broad market direction in sharing these ideas thanks to a solid understanding of the macro environment owing to their years of experience. They notify clients of trade entry/exit, give indications of their conviction in each trade and monitor each trade for clients...alerting them to good opportunities to add or reduce exposure. I think what they offer is a valuable addition for serious investors and they're readily available to answer any questions or concerns a client may have through daily chats and periodic video calls."

The technicals, fundamentals and statistics provide such a range of color that it puts the puzzle of the market together in such a 'keep it simple format'. I get excited every time I get an email sent to my inbox or an alert on the app.
