Free stock alerts, Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings for March 27, 2009

This post is to announce that the latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ. Each week we scan about 7400 stocks and ETFs looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. We apply a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques to identify those stocks that are beginning to move. Our goal is to identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside.

In addition to alerts, we also have our lists of Trend Leaders, a collection of stocks in strong up-trends, Cash Flow Kings whose free cash flow yield is 25% or greater and Bollinger Band Breakouts, stocks or ETFs that have moved at least 3% above their upper Bollinger Band or at least 3% below their lower Bollinger Band. These lists are all available at Alert HQ.

Note that our navigation has changed, so if you have the old pages bookmarked, you will need to update them. Many of the new pages now present the data in tabular form so you can browse the lists before downloading.

Here is what we have this week --

Despite a weak Friday, major averages still added over 6% this week. Investors welcomed the latest Treasury plan to remove toxic assets from bank balance sheets and that positive sentiment carried stocks most of the week, even overcoming the 6.3% decline in GDP and the usual 650,000 jobless claims. There was debate over whether housing is improving as seasonal factors and plunging prices are beginning to generate a few purchases here and there. There was a decent new orders number in the Durable Goods report. It was enough for investors to consider the week's reports as better than expected. And so the rally continued further into short-term over-bought territory. This had the salutary effect of juicing many indicators that are slowed down by moving averages to finally generate buy signals; hence, the positive tone of our signals this week.

Here is the breakdown:
  • based on daily data, we have 225 Alert HQ BUY signals and only 3 SELL signals.
  • based on weekly data, we have 61 Alert HQ BUY signals, a nice jump from last week, and 5 SELL signals.
  • based on daily data, we have 914 Trend Leaders, almost three times the number from last week.
  • based on daily data, we have 165 Bollinger Band Breakouts using the new requirement to exceed the band by 3%. We also have 217 Breakouts based on weekly data.
  • finally, we have 933 Cash Flow Kings.
Visit Alert HQ and download your free lists of stock alerts. The alerts based on weekly data show those stocks that have exhibited some good follow-through after a recent trend reversal. If you want to be early in identifying the newest trend reversals, the lists based on daily data are for you. No matter which preference you have, there are bound to be a few stocks you will want to add to your watch list.

Don't forget to download the free lists of Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings, also at Alert HQ. If you're a momentum trader, the TrendLeaders list is a good place to go shopping. If you have no faith in technical analysis, the Cash Flow Kings may be just what you are looking for.

Running TradeRadar on Windows 7 and Windows 8

Development of the original TradeRadar Stock Inspector software was begun back in the days before Windows 7 and Windows 8 were available.

As these newer versions of Windows have become more popular, we have heard from some users that they are having problems installing and running TradeRadar on their newer PCs.

The good news is that TradeRadar will work just fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8. All you have to do is adjust the Windows Compatibility Settings to ensure TradeRadar runs as intended.

It is recommended that you can apply Compatibility Settings when running the initial installation; however, it is also possible to apply Compatibility Settings after the program has been installed.

Prior to installation
After downloading the install program, go to the folder where you have stored the TradeRadarStkInsp_7_Setup.exe or TradeRadarStkInsp_7_PRO_Setup.exe executable. Right-click on the executable file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Adjust the Compatibility mode to …

Durable Goods report for Sept just so-so but Computer segment is on fire

The Durable Goods advanced report for September 2011 was released on Wednesday.

I like to dig into the Durable Goods report because it can be useful for seeing how tech in aggregate is performing and how the sector may perform in the future. I always focus on two particular measures: shipments and new orders. Let's see how it played out last month.

Shipments -- 

I generally give less importance to Shipments since this is a backward looking measure reflecting orders that have been confirmed, manufactured and shipped. It's similar to earnings reports -- it's good to know but the data is in the past and we're more interested in the future. The following chart shows how September shipments looked for the overall tech sector:


Results for the overall tech sector were a bit weak but take a look at the next chart which tracks the Computers and related products segment:


Results here were actually quite good and, to make things even better, the previous month was revised upward.

Alert HQ has moved!

End of an era!

This site was started way back in 2006/2007 to showcase my blog posts and the Alert HQ buy signals and sell signals. Alert HQ grew to include other kinds of stock alerts including Swing Signals, Trend Busters, Trend Leaders, Cash Flow Kings and more.

In the meantime, I built a sister site, TradingStockAlerts.com and I started using some of the same Alert HQ content over there. As a result, I am discontinuing the Alert HQ data here at Trade-Radar.com

The good news, however, is that all the Alert HQ signals and stock screens are still completely free. In addition, the pages have been enhanced so that you can hover over a stock symbol and a small chart will pop up so you can get a quick look at the stock's recent price action. If you click on a symbol it will take you to a page with plenty of financial and technical analysis information (still free!) as well as a larger chart that you can play with in terms of adding or deleting indicators, moving averages, etc.
