Merry Christmas and Happy (Hopefully Profitable) New Year! We are very excited to ring in 2013 here at Synergy Trader Pro. We have a lot of exciting news and announcements on the horizon and hope that you will continue to follow our outstanding service that is guaranteed to get better and better!
Once again we would like to welcome our new members that joined us in December. We hope that you find this service useful and please feel free to contact us anytime with any questions or concerns that you may have.
With this being our year end newsletter, I not only want to go over our December results but I also want to take a peek at our results from 2012 as a whole. I think you will agree; they are simply outstanding.
December was quite a bit slower than November, but that is to be expected with the light trading volumes around the Holidays coupled with the fact that we may not see a clear market direction until the Fiscal Cliff negotiations are resolved. We did however still see 5 solid picks come through our software – which is about average, all of which have produced small gains over the month.
A summary of our picks from December 2012:
QLTY was called within the last week of November so its results are shown here with December. QLTY was called after the market closed on 11/26 with a closing price of $5.80. The next morning we were fortunate to get in at $5.98 because QLTY just kept going up from there! QLTY sure was a quality pick and rose to a high of $7.00 per share for a GAIN of 17%. We say it is wise to take your gains off the table because shortly after we got out QLTY reversed for a potential 12% loss on the month.
PACR was called after the market closed on 12/3 with a closing price of $3.33 per share. The stock did gap up slightly the next morning, unable to catch a pullback we recorded a position $3.60. PACR remained in a tight range for most of the month before finally breaking to the upside on 12/18. A large volume day on 12/21 sent PACR soaring to a brief high of $5.50 before closing at $4.14 – As of this writing PACR has realized a maximum GAIN of 53% topping out at $5.50 on 12/21.
TUES was called after market hours on Friday 12/7 with a closing price of $6.05. On Monday the stock started falling right at open and we picked up a position $6.04 per share. TUES continued to trade down, falling 5% from our starting price before rebounding to a one month high of $6.30 for a small 4% gain. We continue to hold TUES until we hit our stop loss/gain triggers and will sell on 1/7, a month after opening the position if TUES has not made a move yet.
ACTV was called during market hours on 12/12 allowing us to enter the stock immediately at $4.97 per share. ACTV was a “picture-perfect” insider swing trade. Our software allowed us to automatically enter this trade just before the large volume came in and pushed this stock up to its one month high of $5.32. We hit our 7% stop gain trigger that very same day and thankfully we were out before the stock reversed suddenly falling all the way back to a low of $4.64 on 12/24. As of this writing ACTV showed a maximum GAIN of 7% for the month.
This pick demonstrates the power behind automated trading and adhering to strict stop gain/loss rules, we very well could have missed this profit if it were not for an automated trading system.
SYRG was also called during market hours on 12/12 allowing us to enter the stock immediately at $4.59 per share. After one day of sitting around our entry price SYRG started its climb up the charts and has continued to be a good stock producing gains over the rest of the month. As of this writing SYRG has realized a maximum GAIN of 16% topping out at $5.34 – its 52 week high, on 12/21.
KTOS was called before the market opened on Friday 12/14 with a previous closing price of $4.62 per share on Thursday, we were able to avoid a major gap up and enter a position at $4.71 per share. KTOS has done well; it briefly dipped below our starting price but has since gradually produced small gains day after day for the rest of the month. As of this writing KTOS has had a maximum GAIN of 7% topping out at $5.04 per share on 12/24.
Any other picks that were called within 7 days of the end of the month will be covered in the next newsletter. This month that includes: N/A
A 2012 Overview:
We compiled all of our picks of 2012 into a small pie chart so that you can easily see how many picks had gains, how many recorded a loss and any that were considered neutral (neutral stocks didn’t give a gain or a loss and we sold). This past year brought us total of 59 picks, an average of 5 picks per month. This is exactly in line with what we aim to capture with our software. Of the 59 picks we recorded and unbelievable 41 picks were considered a gain (any pick to increase in value at LEAST 7%) many of these were well into the 20-20% range. Of the 59 picks we only had 14 losers that fell in value at least 10%. Many of our picks only drop to around 5% and often rebound within the month to turn into a gain. The remaining 4 picks were considered neutral because they neither gained 7% nor lost 10%. We usually just hold on to these for a month and sell at the market price when they are considered expired.
As you can see Synergy Trader Pro had a FANTASTIC 2012! This software has showed incredible yearly gains for two years in a row. We believe that this system works and best of all it is fully automated. You just read the monthly reports! We are looking forward to a profitable 2013 where we hope to release our automated trading software and begin sharing this winning system with our customers.
Happy New Year!
