Advance Release - TradeRadar Stock Analysis Software version 4.1

Tonight I'd like to announce the advance release of the TradeRadar stock analysis software version 4.1

Three new features --

The major new features in this version include the following:

Auto checkbox – This probably what many have been waiting for. The Auto checkbox tells the software to automatically set up the chart for the type of signal you are looking for. For those who are new to the software, figuring out how to choose the start date for analyzing a BUY signal or SELL signal can be difficult. This little checkbox lets the software handle it all for you.

Classic Trend Line – This is best explained using an example. For a BUY signal using daily data, this chart feature shows the dotted line that could be drawn connecting the cyclic peaks of the daily high prices. If the price closes above this Classic Trend Line, it is considered a reversal to the up-side. This is different from the TradeRadar slope or trend calculation that is related to daily closing prices. (Note: Classic Trend Lines are what our Trend Busters list is based on)

"Signal in the Zone" indicator – located right next to the Signal Strength indicator on the Dashboard screen, this indicator shows whether the trailing edge of the signal on the lower chart is below the horizontal green line. If the signal is above the green line, the indicator is red. If it is less than 20% below the green line, the indicator is yellow. It it’s more than 20% below the line the indicator is green. This is used to confirm the analysis derived from the other TradeRadar indicators. If this indicator isn't green, don't believe the signal!

Download version 4.1 upgrade

Tonight, the upgrade is being made available. Those of you who have already installed a prior version of the software can use this download to upgrade their current installation to the latest version.

For now, the new software can be downloaded only from this blog post. Click on the following link: Download version 4.1

Extract the the files in the downloaded zip file into the folder where you originally installed TradeRadar and you should be ready to go.

Full install on the way --

The full install of version 4.1 should be available later this week in the Download section of this site. I'll provide a post on this blog to let you know when it's ready.

Feedback welcome --

Questions, comments and any other feedback is welcome. Leave a comment or email me directly.

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.
