Swing Signals and Trend Busters for April 24, 2009

This post is to announce that our weekend batch of new swing trading signals is available at the TradeRadar Alert HQ Swing Signals page.

Our system looks for those stocks and ETFs that have exceeded their upper or lower Bollinger Bands and then have moved back inside the Bollinger Band envelope by a certain amount. Our interpretation is that there is a reversal underway and a short-term trading opportunity has presented itself.

Today we have a total of 68 swing trading signals or which 43 are BUYs and 25 are SELLs.

Trend Busters, too --

We have also posted our weekend list of Trend Busters. These are stocks or ETFs who are breaking out above downward sloping trend lines or are breaking down below upward sloping trend lines.

We have 371 Trend Buster signals based on daily data of which 31 are BUY signals and the great majority are SELL signals.

We also have 940 Trend Buster signals based on weekly data. In this case, things are reversed: 894 of them are BUY signals.

To see today's lists you can check out the TradeRadar Swing Signals page. All 68 stocks are listed, plus we provide a free download in the form of a CSV text file which can be easily opened in Excel or any text editor. In addition to the signal and the stock symbol, we also provide some basic fundamental data to help you select the stocks that are of most interest to you.

On the Trend Busters page we list all the signals based on daily data. You can also download all the signals based on either daily or weekly data.

This first post in the series starts at the beginning: getting good investment ideas.

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.
