Alert HQ for the week ending April 4, 2008

This post is to announce that the latest list of stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ.

The week on Wall Street saw a huge rally and, despite day after day of bad economic news, stocks managed to hold almost all their gains. The major averages are now sitting on top of their 50-day moving averages and the TradeRadar market statistics reflect quite a bit of broad-based strength.

As a result, this week we have a big alert list of 64 BUY signals and no SELL signals!

Some work was done on the TradeRadar software this week to improve the DMI calculations. I would like to refer purchasers of the alert list to StockCharts.com to look up some of the recommended stocks and view their charts. StockCharts.com provides the ability to add to the charts a visual indication of all the technical analysis calculations we do except the proprietary TradeRadar signal and trendlines. Note that the DMI is called "Wilder's DMI (ADX)". They also provide Aroon and Chaiken Money Flow chart overlays as well as moving averages. Note also that TradeRadar uses exponential moving averages which tend to be more responsive than simple moving averages.

Later this weekend I will be writing another post to describe my analysis of the market statistics the Alert HQ software has generated.

Brazil - in a bubble or on a roll?

A couple of years ago, no one recognized the real estate bubble even though it was under everyone's nose. Now, analysts and bloggers are seeing bubbles everywhere they look. One of them, they say is in Brazil whose Bovespa stock market index has doubled in the last 12 months. Does the bubble accusation hold water? I don't think so and here are 7 reasons why Brazil is by no means a bubble economy: Exports have held up over the past year thanks to demand from China for Brazil's soya exports and iron ore. This was helped by the the Brazilian government's drive to improve trade links with Asia and Africa. Export diversification, spurred by a more active trade policy and increased focus on "south-south" trade under current president Lula, helped mitigate the decline in demand from OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries A "sensible" economic framework has been in place since the 1990's. This has included inflation

Thursday Bounce: Trend Busters, Swing Signals and Trend Leaders for July 9, 2009

This is a quick post to announce that we have published Thursday's Trend Leaders, Swing Signals and Trend Busters at Alert HQ . All are based on daily data. Today we have the following: 72 Swing Signals -- A couple of days ago we had 35 signals, today we have twice as many. Happily, we now have 65 BUY signals, a mere 4 SELL Signals plus 3 Strong BUYs. Whoo-hoo! 56 Trend Leaders , all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. There are 18 new stocks that made today's list and 60 that fell off Tuesday's list. 48 Trend Busters of which 5 are BUY signals and 43 are SELL signals The view from Alert HQ -- Talk about mixed signals.

Yes, there's a good sprinkling of tech stocks and tech ETFs but the distribution is pretty broad-based with a good number of different sectors represented, eve
