Most stop-loss systems are rigid, lacking the flexibility to adjust to the volatility in the overall market, as well as in individual names. Many recommend setting stop-losses at a defined percentage loss, or a moving average. Unfortunately, these rules aren’t flexible enough to address the underlying volatility inherent in individual stocks, and thus tend to get falsely triggered far too often. Other set a stop loss at a key technical support level, which is often too arbitrary or subjective.
Intellistops solves these problems.
“Professional money managers have known for years that the most widely employed stop-loss systems have fallen short,” according to FusionIQ Founder and President Kevin Lane. “We’ve all bought a stock and saw it rise aggressively before getting stopped out, only to see it resume its rise. Having built FusionIQ based on the interchange of a myriad of quantitative metrics, combining technical with fundamental factors, we knew we could develop algos that would more intelligently allow investors to risk manage positions and their portfolio.”
FusionIQ displays the Intellistops stop-loss price on over 8,000 stocks and ETFs, which is automatically calculated every evening based on scores of data points from the day’s market action. Additionally, Intellistops is also displayed as an historical chart overlay. Investors can thus easily manage positions when a stock comes under significant selling pressure (often driven by short term profit taking), by comparing market prices to the Intellistops price. When coupledwith FusionIQ’s proprietary Buy and Sell signals -- which tell you not just what to buy and sell, but when – Intellistops allows you to avoid the emotional decision to either sell a stock or ETF when it’s under pressure, or hold onto a name that you’re attached to.
In short, Intellistops furthers FusionIQ’s mission: taking the emotion out of investing, so smarter decisions can be made, and investors can risk manage positions and portfolios more effectively.FusionIQ is an online offering that provides rankings (1-100) and ratings (Buy or Sell) on over 8,000 stocks and ETFs, as well as sectors, groups and subgroups.
