A story… a range… a catalyst.

They are the three components Eoin Treacy looks for before pulling the trigger on a trade.

By correctly identifying this process – which occurs regularly in financial markets – you can make big profits in relatively short order.

Trigger Point Trader is an unleveraged trading service in which Eoin aims to bank a return of between 50% and 150% on a single trade, with a holding position from anywhere between 3 and 12 months.

The easiest way to understand how the service works is to see it in action. Here’s an extract from the first trade Eoin ever recommended for the service, from 20th April, 2016.

Precious metals have been in the doldrums for nearly four years, but that is all changing now as investors realise the attraction of having an insurance policy whose value cannot be simply printed into existence [i.e. fiat money].

That’s good news for gold and silver miners. It’s created a short-term opportunity that could see shares rise hard and fast. My pick to play the upswing is London listed, Mexico based precious metals miner Fresnillo (Ticker: FRES).

There are signs the range, which lasted roughly from October 2014 to the start of 2016, has broken at last. Remember that a market is always either ranging or trending. If it’s ranging – drifting along sideways – then it’s storing up potential for when the range breaks and the price suddenly breaks out (either moving swiftly up or down).

Like I said, there are signs Fresnillo’s share price has started to break out to the upside.

What was the catalyst for that? Silver and gold rallied modestly in January and Fresnillo took off. This action broke the long progression of lower rally highs and the medium-term downtrend.

Fresnillo broke out to new recovery highs on 19 April. We want to play that breakout.

The result?

Eoin bought the share at 1096 pence on 20th April 2016…

And sold on 26th July 2016 at 1801 pence – for a 64.54% profit.

This is not to give the impression that every trade wins – they won’t – but to give you a clear understanding of the sort of trade Eoin looks for.

Regarding losses, safety is obviously a key part of the Trigger Point Trader strategy. For every trade Eoin recommends using a ‘stop loss’, the price at which you can exit a trade if the market goes against you. (So for the Fresnillo trade, Eoin placed a stop loss at 900p, meaning you would have exited the trade had the price sank to that level.)
