* Our performance page for our daily trade ideas is updated when our options spread position for any given daily trade idea expires. The expiration date for the daily idea is indicated on the "Today's Trade Idea" page in the "Today's Option Trade Idea" section. We are using options spread strategy to determine target gain or stop loss. Stock trade idea returns are updated at the same time when our options spread position has reached its target gain or stop loss level. Stock % Gain/Loss is calculated by dividing the $ Gain/Loss by the Max Risk which is the posted Stop Loss for the trade.
