How It Works

When you are ready to buy, login to the Member's Area. (1) Those with a green bar are below their buy price and a buy. Those with a red bar are outside their buy zone. The red bar keeps you informed how much your ETF needs to move before becoming a buy. This makes it easier to monitor how much your ETF needs to move before you need to buy.

Some ETF's need to rise up before they become a buy. Some need to go down before they become a buy. ETF TIMER will alert you (1) if the ETF needs to rise or drop.

If your ETF needs to RISE before becoming a buy, you can use a "Stop Market" order. When it reaches the buy price (2), it will become a buy and your order executed at the market price. If your ETF needs to DROP, you can use a "Limit Order" to buy at the buy price (2) or better.

NOTE: Buy prices change daily, so check daily for the next days buy prices. Updates 1:30PM PST.



You get two sell prices, an upper (1) and a lower sell price (2). You sell based on the CLOSE. Your ETF has to close above the upper sell price or below the lower sell price. ETF TIMER also alerts you (the day before) how much it needs to move before hitting a sell price (3).

If you see your ETF make that move, all you need do is check near the close to see if it will close above the upper or close below the lower. If so, close your position. If you can't login near the close, you can use a "Limit" order to sell on the upper price or a "Stop" order to sell on the lower price, but beware, doing so will get you a different result than the system results here.

Just like when buying, every day the sell prices change also. It is possible that the lower sell price could eventually go above your buy price before triggering.

NOTE: Some ETF's use a stop loss as an extra measure of safety in case there is a huge crash. It is very rare for the stop to trigger (more than likely if the ETF goes the wrong way, your lower sell price will trigger first and get you out before the stop price). Your stop is just in case of a market collapse and your ETF drops HUGE overnight. You want to get out before the close to avoid further losses. You can view the stop percentages used on this page as well as the stop prices on the main page.

If your ETF uses a stop price, after buying the ETF, set an order to sell at that price and forget it. Your stop price never changes, so set and order and just forget it until it triggers or it's time to sell ETF because it's reached it's upper or lower sell price.



Should you ever lose where you are, ETF TIMER has you covered. Every day at 1:30PM PST the website updates and we post a table that shows what the buy and sell prices were for that day and if your ETF was bought or sold that day. To view this information, click on the name of your ETF (1) from the list of ETF's.

The STATUS section (6) will inform you what the system has done. If you are trading this ETF, you should be doing the same.

If you are looking to buy, the BUY section (4) shows the last trading day's buy price and stop price (if used). If you look at the low of the day (2) you will see the ETF did not fall enough to trigger a buy. Missed it by a penny.

If you are looking to sell, you can see the ETF would have needed to close above $30.35 (5) or below 27.83 for this day. You can see the ETF closed at $29.36 (2). Not quite high or low enough to sell this day. Now you check to see what the next trading day's targets are and try again (see the SELL rules above).


In addition to the upper and lower sell targets based on the CLOSING price, some of the ETF's here also come with a regular stop-loss. Since we normally sell based on the closing price, it is possible your ETF could fall so much it could close 20% or 30% lower. You don't want to sell that low. This stop-loss protects you from that.

If you buy about the same or higher than the sysem, use the systems stop price displayed in "Status". If you buy LOWER than the system, then set a stop price for your ETF using the percentage in the table below. Subtract that percentage from your buy price and that is your stop price.

After you buy your ETF, set your stop order to that price and forget it. This stop price never changes.


NOTE: As of September 3, 2021, we no longer use a stop with FNGU or TQQQ. We now use a 16% stop with LABU.
