ETF Trading Strategy FAQ’s
What is TheGoldAndOilGuy.com service and who is Chris Vermeulen?
TheGoldAndOilGuy.com is owned and run by me (Chris Vermeulen) an individual active swing trading specialist. After sharing my analysis with friends, fellow traders and investors, I decided to make trading my full time job in 2003. This service was designed from the ground up to help investors who want to focus on consistent, accurate and profitable trades while learning how to read the financial market for them selves. I have been trading since 2000, fine tuning my trading strategy year after year. I continue to improve the timing, entry and exit points and explore new investments as the market evolves. My focus is on trading with the overall market trend and to spot new bull and bear markets within various sectors, indexes, commodities and currencies. My swing trades typically last between 1-6 weeks in length. But during volatile times my goal is to play the short term overbought and oversold market sentiment levels with trades lasting 1-5 days in length.

When are the trades sent out?
Trades are sent out during regular trading hours 9:30am ET to 4:00pm ET.
Most trades can be entered 1-3 days after an alert as I do not pick exact tops or bottoms. You should be able to enter trades at the same price or better than what the price is during the time of the alert.
How many trades per year do you have?
The amount of trades varies each year but I look for 15 – 30 Trades/Investment positions per year.
What are Golden Rockets?
Golden Rockets are stocks/ETFs that look ready for a large moves of 40% or greater. While these do not happen often, I do keep tabs on stocks during major market buy and sell signals. When I have spotted a Rocket I will send a special research report to members with my outlook.
Where do I find a list of past completed trades?
This newsletter has gone under some changes recently to share both my trades and long term investments for all my investment capital. Because the newsletter now provides both my swing trades and long term investments which are in new bull markets or short/inverse positions for investments which are starting new bear markets, past trades will not properly show what this newsletter does.
With that said you can view all recent trades since I upgraded this newsletter in the side bar here: http://www.thegoldandoilguy.com/stan-weinstein-model-etf-portfolio/
Do you have a trial period?
We do not have a free trial period. But we do have a monthly payment option for you to take this newsletter for a one month test drive. Most clients upgrade to the a semi annual or annual subscription for the discounted rate.
Do members learn the trading strategy?
Some members just want my market analysis and forecasts while others want to learn everything they can and follow my investment ideas as I navigate the market. To be honest, the strategy is very simple. Through my trading videos, charts, updates and investment ideas, you will learn my strategy over time and apply the rules to your own investment ideas.
How easy is it to find a low risk trade setup?
I generally look at my charts and within 10 minutes know what to do — either stay in cash, enter a position, adjust my stop, take partial profits or exit a position. Keep in mine trading is not about always being involved in the market. Its about waiting for the right opportunities to unfold, then entring a calculated position and actively managing it.
How often do you have investment ideas?
Generally I have 25-50 ideas a year. This is one reason why I like my strategy so much. I focus on making 3-6% profit on each trade on average. I provide my investment ideas for a variety of ETFs for indexes, sectors, and commodities.
Which investing / trading ideas provide the most profit potential?
I provide a wide range of trades through tne use of ETF’s. Precious metals, oil, natural gas, indexes, sectors, currency and country specific. I provide both US based and Canadian ETF’s for each trade setup when both are available.
What is an exchange traded funds (ETF’s)?
An ETF fund trades the same as individual stocks allowing you to trade them during normal market hours and in pre market and after hours trading. These fund allows us to take advantage of sectors, indexes commodities, currencies, countries and bonds through a simple invesment which trade like a stock.
