Overview

The INSIIDE Track Intra-month Update is an intervening update – focused on our primary markets & geared to bridge the gap between issues of the monthly INSIIDE Track newsletter. It is updated by 9:00 PM (Central Time) around the 5th, 12th & 22nd of each month (specific dates for each month’s IT Update are provided in the preceding IT Update AND in the Re-Cap section of the preceding issue of INSIIDE Track) and on any day the DJIA closes more than 200 points in either direction.

Analysis

The Intra-month Update focuses on the 3-5 week & 1-3 month trends, trading strategies and analysis and is also able to convey any intra-month changes or updates much quicker than the monthly newsletter – when it can still be capitalized on – for those intermediate term traders that want to stay in a little closer touch with the markets (while still focusing on the bigger picture trends & cycles).

Trading Strategy

Since not all INSIIDE Track newsletter subscribers opt to also subscribe to the Intra-month Update, any trading strategies provided in the monthly newsletter are distinct from those in the Intra-month Update and are treated differently. This is to take into consideration the fact that newsletter-only subscribers will not be receiving the more timely updates available in the Intra-month Update.

As a result, Intra-month Update trading strategies will frequently be exited quicker than those given in the newsletter since closer touch is maintained with the markets. This also means that stops given for newsletter-based traders are often wider (involving more risk but allowing a larger buffer to prevent premature whipsaws) than those given or revised in the Intra-month Update.

So, a reader should choose appropriately and be careful to treat apples as apples and oranges as oranges. Do not mix the strategies in the various publications unless you are attempting to provide a diversity of time frames in your portfolio (in which case both strategies can be followed and adhered to according to each set of distinct parameters).
