Performance Review - TradeRadar 'Strong BUY' Swing Trading Signals on a streak

It's been a few weeks since I introduced the Strong BUY signal to the TradeRadar Swing Signals list. What kind of performance are we seeing?

I am pleased to say that the results have been pretty good. As you can see in the following chart, there isn't a loser among them.

During this time when these signals were being generated, we have sort of had the wind at our backs. The market has been going through a bit of a trading range, which is good for this kind of signal, and early during this last week we had a breakout above the range. These factors helped the gains in the list above.

What is striking, however, is the consistent quality of these signals. This is a small sample, but it does seem that the methodology we have for generating Strong BUY Swing Trading Signals does a good job of finding stocks that are generally in an upward trend that are about to make a move from the vicinity of their lower Bollinger Band to their upper Bollinger Band.

Keep in mind that we announce a new batch of Swing Signals every Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings. Not every batch finds a Strong BUY signal so when we do find one, it is significant.

Keep an eye on the Swing Signal page at TradeRadar Alert HQ. Let's see if we can keep this streak going!

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. If you look at our Swing Signals list you would think the market was in the middle of a big bounce. BUY signals are swamping the SELL signals and we even have a few Strong BUYs. 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
