Ratings

Each article about a new potential trade will come with a certain maple leaf icon. There are three versions which I will try to explain.

When we rate a stock with a golden Maple Leaf that means that we consider the trade to have more potential upside than there is downside in the very near term future. That also means we are of the opinion that we are more likely to see the stock take on higher gains than that it will go lower. Basically, low risk, calm but steady gains over time.


When we rate a stock with a silver Maple Leaf that means that we do consider the stock has the potential for a short term rally but it just means that the technicals (MACD, RSI, trend,...) are just not that good as with a golden rating. Basically, medium risk, gains could be greater short term.



When we rate a stock with a red Maple Leaf that means that while we do expect some upward action from this stock in the very near term future we also concede that the risk is much higher and the chart technicals at the moment of the posting are not so favorable as they would be with the other ratings.
