Performance results assume that each trade idea is bought at the fair price the first trading day following the date the idea is published in the Daily Trading Idea email.  Fair price is defined as the average of the high, low and closing price for the stock.  Trade ideas are held in a mock portfolio until the position is exited on a 5% trailing stop.
