With your ideas we can build a better Alert HQ together

I am planning to add a premium section to the Trade-Radar web site. This members-only area will consist of content similar to Alert HQ but more unique. In fact, I will be naming it Alert HQ Premium and there will be a modest recurring charge to access the data.

Tell me what you'd like to see --

I would like to ask readers to submit ideas for content. Tell me what kinds of custom stock screens you would like to see and I'll try to build them.

Just to get the ball rolling, let me describe what I have built so far. The following alert lists will be generated three times per week based on our scans of the NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX:
  • Value stocks breaking out
  • Reasonable Value Momentum Stocks to Buy on a pullback
  • Dividend Growth at Reasonable Value
  • Over-priced and Over-bought Report
  • Ebb and Flow Report - stocks on the move based on weekly data
  • Top 50 stocks based on Total Return Ratio
I think these alert lists will be unique in that I will be combining value analysis and technical analysis in order to bring you low-risk investment candidates.

I am thinking of providing some alert lists dedicated solely to ETFs. Any suggestions? Would you be interested in best and worst performing ETFs over the last week? Perhaps a report dedicated to the ProShares family of ETFs?

I'd very much like to hear your ideas --

Where do current stock screeners fall short? How can I help get you the information you need?

Please leave a comment or send me an email.

Why not share or Tweet this post so others can contribute their ideas? The more suggestions we have the better we can make Alert HQ Premium.

Let's do this together!

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.
