If you still have ISM because your trailing stop is still intact, it’s best to hold your position for now. Do not top up until the 10SMACD and Momentum Power Indicator become bullish. Make sure that you do an upward adjustment on your trailing stop every time the price registers a higher prevailing price.

If you are planning to enter a new position on this stock, I suggest that you wait until our 10SMA-MACD and Momentum Power Indicator are both bullish. When that happens, you may calculate your reward-to-risk ratio. You can use my Reward-to-Risk Ratio Calculator. If you’re happy with that ratio, then, you can test-buy within the dominant range once the 10SMA-MACD and Momentum Power Indicator are bullish. Calculate your trailing stop immediately once the stock enters your portfolio.

Regardless whether you already have a position on this stock or you’re yet to enter a new position, it’s best that you ask for our latest analysis and recommendation in our Private Clients Forum so we can tell you if the technical buy indicators are still intact.
