"Protect Your Investment Like the Pros: Position-Sizing & Stop-Loss Money Management"

    Discussed by:

    Ian Abbott

    Owner, Abacus Financial Services

Ian Abbott will discuss trading strategies for both equities and exchange traded funds. These are strategies that will help protect your portfolio in market downfalls and will help make you a better investor. Media and newsletters always discuss what to buy, but seldom tell you when to sell. Abbott will teach you the sell strategies you need to know to be a better investor.
