What to know about Trade Recommendations

When a market setup becomes an actionable trading opportunity, it will be issued as a recommendation including real-time entry and exit prices.

All open trading positions will be tracked throughout the trade. Adjustments to exit prices (stop-loss and profit target levels) will be specifically communicated. In short, we will issue recommendaitons to help you manage the position till completion.
