More new features added

The web site pages that augment this blog are in pretty decent shape now and I have made some improvements to the blog itself.

The screenshots of the TradeRadar application are in place with explanations of what each screen does.

I have deployed the Tracking page where I keep the status of past TradeRadar picks updated. You will see a ticker with the latest prices and a table describing the current situation. Here is where I will admit to failures and revel in successes.

For those of you who have downloaded the TradeRadar application, I intend to update the Help file soon and will be posting it on the Download page. It should be ready within the next week.

I have also added some cool new tools to this blog. Those of you who have visited lately may have noticed the Trade Radar Stock Consultant form in the left sidebar. The Stock Consultant site provides automated technical analysis of stocks and options including charts, timing indicators, support and resistance, etc.

I have joined an excellent blog directory called Tailrank. I have created a custom Tailrank search that I am hosting on this blog that retrieves posts from financial blogs. An interesting feature is that Tailrank also displays who is linking to a particular post so you can follow the conversation from blog to blog.

Finally, I have also added a form from AmericanBulls.com, a site I discovered while researching mashups. They use candlestick analysis to generate automated buy/sell/wait signals for short term trading. The explanations provided are quite detailed and they are honest enough to post how their calls have worked out over the past two years.

Unlock Stock Market Profits - Key #1

This is the first in an ongoing series of articles where I discuss what I feel are keys to successful investing. It is based on a post that provides a summary of the ten keys that individual investors should use to identify profitable stock trades. ( Click here to read the original post ) There are two basic steps to investing. First, you need to find stocks that seem to have some potential. Then you have to determine whether these stocks are actually good investments. There are many stocks that at first glance look interesting, but further research reveals that there are too many negatives to warrant taking a position. This first post in the series starts at the beginning: getting good investment ideas. Key #1: If something special is happening to a stock, it will be reflected in some kind of unusual activity in the markets. As individual investors, we will never be the first to know; however, unusual activity can be an early sign that allows us to follow the Wall Street profess

Interactive Ads - Google one-ups Yahoo again

Google's ( GOOG ) press release describing the expansion of a beta program for what are being called Gadget Ads has again shown that Google is unparalleled at melding technology and advertising to benefit its bottom line. Gadget Ads are mini-web pages or "widgets" that can be embedded within publisher pages. I have written in the past on Yahoo's ( YHOO ) Smart Ads and how, by more precisely targeting site users and adjusting ad content accordingly, they provide a much desired evolution of the banner or display ad format. Though Smart Ads and Gadget Ads are not really the same, I think it is fair to say that Google has seen the challenge of Smart Ads and has chosen to leapfrog Yahoo by rolling out its own update to the display ad format. The evolution of the Gadget Ad -- One of the trends on the Internet over the last year or so involves software developers creating "widgets" which can be hosted within web pages and blogs. Widgets can be pretty much any
