Protecting Capital At Risk In Sun Life Financial Stock (SLF) – Trade Ideas for Apr 13 2015

As Sun Life Financial Stock heads into the next quarterly earnings to be released near the start of May, a lot of investors may be contemplating how to trade the stock while at the same time protect their capital from a possible decline in the stock. Sun Life Financial Stock for the past six months has been unable to set new highs and technical indicators point to possible further weakness.

Yet while the stock has done nothing for the past 6 months, my trades have continued to compound the returns. Eventually though, a trend changes in most stocks and Sun Life Financial Stock will be no different. If a stock cannot climb, it will eventually pullback until it can find buyers.

There are a number of ways to protect trades from substantial losses and allow an investor to sleep nights, but often the simplest ends up being the best. Not only does it provide flexibility, but often it ends up being the cheapest and easiest to implement.

This article looks at 3 different trade ideas in Sun Life Financial Stock. I have outlined the trade I plan to enter on Monday as well. All three trade ideas can be protected simply and effectively.
