Alert HQ signals for Thursday, April 8, 2010

This post is announcing that Thursday's Swing Signals, Trend Leaders, Trend Busters and Gap Signals are now available at Alert HQ. All are based on daily data.

Today we have the following:
  • 17 Swing Signals -- 13 BUY signals and 4 SELL Signals.
  • 397 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 123 stocks that are new additions to the list and 216 that fell off the previous list.
  • 24 Trend Busters of which 13 are BUY signals and 11 are SELL signals.
  • 152 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. 54 are bearish gaps and 98 are bullish gaps.
The view from Alert HQ --

Stocks keep scratching out modest gains. Today was more of the same but our Alert HQ signals, while still reasonably bullish, started showing a bit of weakness today.

Jobs data was less than thrilling today while retail sales were better than expected. The push and pull had stocks starting in the red and ending in the green. That was enough to ensure that Alert HQ had more BUY signals than SELL signals. And I'm a little surprised to see upside gaps outnumbering downside gaps 2 to 1.

So even if stocks over-extended we see the up-trend continuing. We'll have to see how long it lasts.

Using our signals --

If you're a momentum trader, the Trend Leaders list is a good place to go shopping. If you practice technical analysis, check out the Trend Busters. And if you are a short-term trader or even a day trader, our Swing Signals or Gap Signals may provide some good trading ideas.
