Formal release of TradeRadar software version 4.1 now available

This post is to announce that the full install of TradeRadar version 4.1 is now available. For those who have never used TradeRadar, this will provide all the components necessary to install and run this most recent version of the software.

The two screens that have been updated are now displayed on the Features page. The Download pages now provide both the 4.1 upgrade and the 4.1 full install. In addition, the latest help file is available for your review.

New Features in version 4.1 --

The major new features in this version include the following:
  • Auto checkbox – automatically sets up the chart for the type of signal you are looking for. Select either BUY signal – smooth or SELL signal – smooth. Click the Update Chart button and the software will automatically try to find the best chart setup.
  • Classic Trend – For a BUY signal using daily data, for example, this chart feature shows the line that could be drawn connecting the cyclic peaks made by the daily high prices. When the stock closes above this trend line, you would have a classic trend reversal. This is different from the TradeRadar slope or trend calculation that is related to daily closing prices.
  • "Signal in the Zone" indicator – For a signal to be valid, it has to be in the "zone." This new Dashboard indicator describes whether the TradeRadar signal is sort of in the zone, solidly in the zone or completely out of the zone. This is very important for confirming the analysis derived from the other TradeRadar indicators.
As mentioned above, you can check out screen shots and read the help file on our Features page. For more detailed descriptions of the new features, check out our earlier post "Advance Release - TradeRadar Stock Analysis Software version 4.1"

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.
