FAQ

Blue Line Trading FAQ:

Q1: How does the system work?

A: We use our trading platform (trend-following) to identify our next trade. These trade alerts are triggered and sent out at the market open each day (one trade per day), which we send out to our subscribers in real time.

Q2: What should I expect as a subscriber?

A: Expect one trade alert per day at the beginning of the day (sent to your email). This alert will also be published on the website (subscriber alerts page). Access to trade alerts are only available to current subscribers.

Q3: What do I need in order to get started?

A: An email address, a brokerage account (optimal if options trades are enabled), and funds to trade

Q4: Do I need a minimum amount of funds in order to trade the system?

A: Not necessarily, though it is recommended to consider budgeting for several open trades at a time. Many of our alerts will present a position which could be open for several weeks. 

Q5: How do the trades work?

A: We present the buy (with suggested entry price) and recommend pre-setting your exit based on your preferences. Each trader will be responsible for his/her own exits. You can place a Sell-Limit order after entering your trade, for a gain of 50%-100%-200%, whatever suits your style. An example of an actual trade for reference:

The System identified a new trade (CRUS September $35 put). To execute this trade, a subscriber would do the following:

Order #1:  Buy to Open Sep $35 Put @ $1.45  (or, "Market Order"). 

When the above order is filled (should take 30 seconds or less):

Order #2: Sell to Close Sep $35 Put @ $2.20 (for 50% gain) 
            or: Sell to Close Sep $35 Put @ $2.90 (for 100% gain) 
Make sure that Order #2 is what is called a "Limit" order, i.e., you will sell the option only at the designated price. That assures you of getting the desired the percentage gain (assuming the option trades at that level). Especially for new traders of the system I suggest starting out targeting 50% gains, at least until you get the feel for how this very simple, but effective trading system works. That 50% could be seen in a matter of days, sometimes weeks, and occasionally months. Even if it is the latter, who cares? Fifty percent is fifty percent.

Q6: What about stops for limiting losses?

A:  There are two potential stops that will end a trade. The first one is a stock price that if violated will cancel the signal and end the trade. The second is a percentage loss on the option which we recommend be between 50-75%. Since everyone has a different risk:reward profile as an option trader, we leave to the individual trader where to set their personal stop-loss. 

Q7: How do I access the subscriber content?

A: When you purchase a subscription, your email address is automatically added to our system. This email address will receive the trade alerts each day. For access to the alerts via our website, you will need to create a login using the same email address you subscribed with. To access your subscriber billing portal and manage your account, visit this page.

Q8: How long has this system been around?

A: AllanTrends/Blue Line Trading began officially as a subscription service in 2010, but our head writer and chief strategist, Allan Harris, has been trading for a living for 4 decades! We have gone through several iterations of our system, always to improve profitability and ensure the best possible experience for our subscribers. We are absolutely positive this is the best system yet!
