    What a day we had today! How come there are 2 losses when everything was down… down … down. Why not all wins?

      Thank you for the note. While we would like to see 100% wins, it’s about probabilities. The algorithm generates stock picks with high probability of winning but sometimes the stock does not move in the intended direction. Taking loss is part of trading. Goal is to have more winners to compensate for the few losing trades.
