Trend Leaders - spotlight on the latest additions

Having just posted the Thursday Alert HQ signals consisting of Trend Busters, Trend Leaders and Swing Signals, it occurred to me that it would be useful to see what stocks or ETFs were new to the Trend Leaders list.

One of the issues affecting analysis of the market lately is that so many stocks have been in steep up-trends. This means that the Trend Leaders list is pretty big each time we run it, often listing well over 1000 entries. The sheer volume sometimes makes it difficult to pick out the stocks of interest. That is why I have implemented functionality to allow you to sort the data. Still, I realize that may not be enough.

Spotlight on today's leaders --

Today the market was pretty strong, but just prior to today it had suffered a number of weak sessions. The result is that the Trend Leaders list has dwindled to less than 500. Over 700 stocks fell off the list since it was last run on Tuesday night though 382 stocks still remain.

Below I have listed those stocks and ETFs that are were not on Tuesday's Trend Leaders list but have now made a new appearance on today's list. There are 53 in all.

I will try to do this on a regular basis. It should help readers more easily identify those stocks that are just starting to out-perform without having to wade through a huge list.

Remember, on the Trend Leaders page, we have more data in a tabular format that you can sort on and we also offer a downloadable file that you can import into your favorite spreadsheet software.

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.
