Thursday Trio: Trend Busters, Swing Signals and Trend Leaders for June 25, 2009

This is a quick post to announce that Thursday's Trend Leaders, Swing Signals and Trend Busters are now available at Alert HQ. All are based on daily data.

Today we have the following:
  • 305 Swing Signals -- Wow! What a huge increase in signals and almost all of them are bullish: 290 BUY signals and 4 SELL Signals plus 11 Strong BUYs
  • 98 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. There are 40 new stocks that made today's list and 28 that fell off Tuesday's list.
  • 20 Trend Busters of which 6 are BUY signals and 14 are SELL signals
The view from Alert HQ --

Another Swing Signals list with Strong BUYs! That's twice this week. There is no doubt that many stocks are bouncing off their lower Bollinger Band. If this can translate into good breadth over the next few days we could see markets taking another leg up.

On the other hand, our list of Trend Leaders dwindled again; however, there is quite a bit of filtering on the indicators used to generate the list of Trend Leaders so they tend to lag major market moves by a bit.

So our Swing Trading Signals are the leading indicators and our Trend Leaders do a good job of confirming a new trend. It is worth keeping an eye on both.

Using the signals --

Remember, if you're a momentum trader, the Trend Leaders list is a good place to go shopping. If you practice technical analysis, check out the Trend Busters. And if you are a short-term trader or even a day trader, our Swing Signals may provide some good trading ideas.

( 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.

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
