TradeRadar software version 2.0 released

This post is to announce the release of the newest version of the TradeRadar software. The major new feature in version 2.0 is the addition of trend lines. It is available on the TradeRadar Download page in two versions: a full install and a simple upgrade.

The software attempts to identify reversals in price movement. In the case of a BUY signal, TradeRadar will now indicate whether an initial downward trend exists and whether a subsequent upward trend is in the process of being formed. The trend lines are displayed on the chart screen overlaying the price graph and moving averages.

The software has removed two indicators, Variance and Slope, and replaced them with Angle of Attack (AOA) and Trend Diff. These two new indicators display the angles associated with the trend lines. AOA shows the angle the first trend line makes with the horizontal. The Trend Diff indicator shows the angle the second trend line makes versus the first trend line; i.e., it measures how steep the reversal is.

Here is an example:

Be sure to download the PC desktop program today from the TradeRadar Download page.

Shortly we will release the new version in the online format. Please be patient while we work to bring the online version of TradeRadar up to the level of 2.0 and also update the training videos.

Be sure to email me or comment on this post if you have questions or wish to share your experiences using TradeRadar. Best of luck in all your investing activities!

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.

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
