Trade-Radar's Alerts Plus+ are moving!

I wanted to provide warning that the Alerts Plus+ feature on this site will be discontinued by the end of this month.

The content, however, is currently available and will remain available at our sister site TradingStockAlerts.com

For those of you who follow the Dividend and Value alerts (Reasonable Value Trend Busters, Dividend Growers, Reasonable Value Dividend Growers, etc.) or the Special Reports (Over-Valued Over-Bought, Ebb & Flow Report, Value and Growth, etc.), you will be happy to know that they are all still running at  TradingStockAlerts.com. The alerts and reports listed above are all under the "Stocks to Watch" menu item and you can go directly to them at the PremiumAlerts Stocks to Watch page.

Alerts Plus+ also has a selection of alerts dedicated to ETFs. These have also moved to TradingStockAlerts.com. They can be found under the "ETFs" menu item and are all listed on the PremiumAlerts ETF Analysis page. The good news here is that there are a couple more reports at TradingStockAlerts.com that have not been available here at Trade-Radar. The new site, in addition to the various ETF Scorecards, Sector and Style Reports and ProShares Reports also has several reports devoted to analysis of the E*Trade Commission-Free ETFs.

There are a number of benefits to using the reports at TradingStockAlerts.com. For example, if you hover your mouse over a stock symbol, a small chart pops up so you can get a quick view of how the price action looks. If you click on a stock symbol, you are taken to the TradingStockAlerts Stock Search Results page. Here you will be presented with our opinion of the stock. We calculate three scores for the stock: a financial score, a valuation score and trend performance score. We combine these scores and provide a Buy/Sell/Hold/Avoid opinion. In addition, we provide a wealth of financial and technical detail as well as an interactive chart and links to best of breed web sites where you can get more information on this stock. All in all, this is pretty handy when researching your stocks.

There is, however, one drawback. We are not offering downloads of the data in CSV format (useful for pulling into spreadsheet applications like Excel) at TradingStockAlerts.com. If that is a problem, please email me and let me know. If enough people request it, I can perhaps start building it into the reports as we do here at Trade-Radar.

So in summary, I would encourage users to start checking out TradingStockAlerts.com and see all the content we have built over there. You will see some familiar stuff like the original Alert HQ reports but there are also other great features such as our stock screeners, watch lists and our E-Zone System.

Thank you for supporting our Alerts Plus+ here at Trade-Radar.com and I hope to see you over at TradingStockAlerts.com

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.
