SmartStops helps to secure profits and limit losses with automated intelligence
Just in time for Christmas, Cortal Consors is providing to its customer an innovative new free feature. Customers will now have immediately access, so far exclusively, to the intelligently adjusting stop loss service SmartStops.

 SmartStops acts as an monitoring and alert tool which helps investors to secure profits and limit losses. SmartStops are generated daily for approximately 500 popular equities on the European exchanges, as well as equities for all major US exchanges.  The stop loss signals are adjusted each day and designed to trigger when a trading pattern indicates the equity has entered an abnormal period of risk. Customers can then decide if they want to quickly transfer this proposal to a self-direction a stop loss. SmartStops dynamically apply a range of technical models to adapt stop loss points as market conditions change.

Intelligent risk management
This service is available in short and medium-term version. With the short term variant, the SmartStop is placed closer to the normal range of variance. They react thus faster on market movements than the medium-term SmartStops which are more tolerant in relation to exchange rate fluctuations. SmartStops give more room for variance during an upward trend and also adjust for lateral movement. This helps investors avoid whipsaws or exiting a position during a possible short term correction. However in downward phases, SmartStops adjust closer to the normal range of price variance, helping investors identify greater risk exposure and avoid major losses.

As soon as customers log in to the Cortal Consors website and call a share Snapshot, the SmartStops is indicated to help automatically maintain protection – for all DAX, MDax, TecDax, Nasdaq 100 – and Dow of Jones values. In addition, the French benchmark index CAC 40 as well as 80 additional French equities are covered. In the coming year, this service will be extended to 20 additional ETFs.
