The Trend Trader helps to identify the current trend status of your favorite ETF markets. It not only helps us to stay on the right side of market direction, but also helps us avoid those without a trend. You can even use the grid as a spread matrix too – buying strength and selling weakness. Before you place your next trade, be sure to consult the Trend Trader.
