While the Swing Trader bot has generated a solid return for BAC over the past quarter, traders must always be aware of potential risks and market fluctuations. The recent bearish signal for BAC could indicate a downturn, and traders should consider the potential downside before making any investment decisions.
It's worth noting that Swing Trader's long bias strategy means that it focuses on buying stocks that are likely to increase in value over the long term, rather than trying to make quick profits through short-term trades. As such, traders using this bot should be prepared to weather potential short-term fluctuations in the market.

However, traders must always exercise caution and be aware of potential risks, especially when bearish signals arise.
