Introducing TradeRadar Live Market Monitor

Those who read this blog know that in addition to writing about the stock market I also dabble in writing software. I have been experimenting with web widgets lately and I have created a page to monitor the market action during the trading day. It's called the TradeRadar Stock Center - Live Market Monitor.

The page provides a configurable list of quotes that is updated every 30 seconds. There are four small charts that can each be set up to display an individual stock, ETF or index. The charts also update every 30 seconds. (Quotes and charts are courtesy of Yahoo!)

The Stock Market Update feed from Briefing.com is provided. This feed is updated every hour or half hour throughout the trading day. I have provided the feed with a refresh button so you can get the latest update without having to reload the whole web page and possibly lose what you have set up.

If you see something interesting happening on your charts or your quote list, analysis tools are provided so you can search for articles on SeekingAphla.com or check the analysis on StockConsultant.com or AmericanBulls.com. You can quickly jump to a stock's profile on Yahoo Finance or MSN Money. Get a detailed chart from BigCharts.com or StockCharts.com or just do a quick search on blogs or Google. You can even find it on EDGAR.

The beauty of this page is that you can monitor a number of stocks simultaneously without having to refresh the page constantly. And the tools are set up so you can just input a ticker symbol and click a button and you get the information you need.

The page is located at my widget web site, OpenLinkz.com. Check it out at http://openlinkz.com/stockcenter.html

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 professionals and …

With this fourth post, we will continue another step along the path of finding stocks that seem to have some potential. The first post in the series discussed how to use unusual activity to identify investing ideas. The second post described how to use stock screeners. The third post described how to use lists of new highs and new lows. This post will focus on identifying social or business trends in order to find investing ideas.

Information on new trends might turn up anywhere. In conversation with friends or business associates, in newspapers or magazines, on TV or though your work. The key is to be aware of trends and how they start, stop or change. We'll start by describing what to lo…

Free stock alerts, Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings for Jan 16, 2009

This post is to announce that the latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ. Each week we scan over 7400 stocks and ETFs looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. We apply a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques to identify those stocks that are beginning to move. Our goal is to identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside.

Wait, there's more...

We also use the Alert HQ process to generate more free lists of stocks and ETFs

The first byproduct of the Alert HQ process is the Trend Leaders list, our collection of stocks in strong up-trends. These stocks are registering strong signals using Aroon analysis, DMI and MACD. They are also above their 50-day exponential moving average. This week's list is now available at the TradeRadar site on the Trend Leaders page.

As another byproduct of the Alert HQ process we have generated a list of stocks that have broken either above their upper…
