Welcome to our weekly newsletter, where we offer insights into stock setups that we share with our Phoenix members.

This week we have seen the markets pull back to areas of support, and we await their next move. Price never moves in a straight line: breakouts and pullbacks are all part of the markets ‘breathing’. As seasoned traders, we expect and embrace these cycles. 

We have a clear trading plan that governs our approach. This is the value of our education programme, where we teach members the right techniques to manage in all market conditions.

Let’s get into this week’s newsletter!
