Troublesome Tuesday - Swing Signals, Trend Busters and Trend Leaders for June 16, 2009

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

Today we have the following:
  • 56 Swing Signals -- 24 BUY signals and 32 SELL Signals but no Strong BUYs or Strong SELLS.
  • 252 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 37 stocks that are new additions to the list and 450 that fell off the previous list.
  • 197 Trend Busters of which only 23 are BUY signals and 174 are SELL signals.
Today's signals paint a troubling picture --

First, our list of Trend Leaders has been decimated in the last two trading days. On the weekend we had 665 stocks and ETFs on the list, after today there are only 252.

Conversely, today we have a big increase in the number of stocks and ETFs on our Trend Busters list. What is worrisome is that a big proportion of those that are breaking to the up-side are inverse ETFs.

So we see fewer stocks in strong up-trends and more inverse ETFs breaking to the up-side. This does not bode well for the market in the near term. Indeed, both the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 broke below their 20-day MA today. We are now coming up on a test of the 200-day MA, which, I guess, should be no surprise after such a steep climb from the March lows. Let's hope this is just a minor correction and not a reassertion of the bear.

Using our signals --

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.

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
