Holding Period

    The range of time in minutes we expect to be in a particular trade.  The first value indicates the minimum period of time we expect to be in the trade.  The second, larger value indicates the maximum length of time we will hold the probable trade.  This longer time period does not mean we will automatically exit a trade; we always attempt to let price action take us out of a trade.

notice

    Refers to an unsent Bulletin that will apprise you of additional action to be taken.

Risk/Reward

    A relative value indicating the expected return for a given stop loss risk.
