Advance Release - TradeRadar Stock Analysis Software version 4.1

Tonight I'd like to announce the advance release of the TradeRadar stock analysis software version 4.1

Three new features --

The major new features in this version include the following:

Auto checkbox – This probably what many have been waiting for. The Auto checkbox tells the software to automatically set up the chart for the type of signal you are looking for. For those who are new to the software, figuring out how to choose the start date for analyzing a BUY signal or SELL signal can be difficult. This little checkbox lets the software handle it all for you.

Classic Trend Line – This is best explained using an example. For a BUY signal using daily data, this chart feature shows the dotted line that could be drawn connecting the cyclic peaks of the daily high prices. If the price closes above this Classic Trend Line, it is considered a reversal to the up-side. This is different from the TradeRadar slope or trend calculation that is related to daily closing prices. (Note: Classic Trend Lines are what our Trend Busters list is based on)

"Signal in the Zone" indicator – located right next to the Signal Strength indicator on the Dashboard screen, this indicator shows whether the trailing edge of the signal on the lower chart is below the horizontal green line. If the signal is above the green line, the indicator is red. If it is less than 20% below the green line, the indicator is yellow. It it’s more than 20% below the line the indicator is green. This is used to confirm the analysis derived from the other TradeRadar indicators. If this indicator isn't green, don't believe the signal!

Download version 4.1 upgrade

Tonight, the upgrade is being made available. Those of you who have already installed a prior version of the software can use this download to upgrade their current installation to the latest version.

For now, the new software can be downloaded only from this blog post. Click on the following link: Download version 4.1

Extract the the files in the downloaded zip file into the folder where you originally installed TradeRadar and you should be ready to go.

Full install on the way --

The full install of version 4.1 should be available later this week in the Download section of this site. I'll provide a post on this blog to let you know when it's ready.

Feedback welcome --

Questions, comments and any other feedback is welcome. Leave a comment or email me directly.

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 professionals and …

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 anything that ca…
