ProShares ETF survey - which ones have the strongest technicals?

With the stock market seemingly melting up, I wanted to know which ProShares ETFs were generating the best technical signals.

The list below shows those ProShares ETFs that are exhibiting strong upward trends according to DMI and Aroon analysis and also have their 20-day moving average above their 50-day moving average.

DDMUltra Dow30Ultra Market Cap
QLDUltra QQQUltra Market Cap
ROMUltra TechnologyUltra Sector
UGEUltra Consumer GoodsUltra Sector
ULEUltra EuroUltra Currency
UPWUltra UtilitiesUltra Sector
USDUltra SemiconductorsUltra Sector

All of these are Ultra ETFs. In other words, they deliver 200% of the performance of their underlying index on a daily basis.

For those of you who are looking for a little extra juice in your portfolio, these 2X ETFs are a good source. Unfortunately, after the big run-ups they have seen in the last two weeks, it is hard to recommend them as a BUY today. On the other hand, these ETFs represent sectors or styles on which investors have particularly positive outlooks. On a pullback, these ETFs could be the ones to buy.

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 …

With this fourth post, we will continue another step along the path of finding stocks that seem to have some potential.

The third post described how to use lists of new highs and new lows. This post will focus on identifying social or business trends in order to find investing ideas.

Information on new trends might turn up anywhere. In conversation with friends or business associates, in newspapers or magazines, on TV or though your work. The key is to be aware of trends and how they start, stop or change. We'll start by describing what to lo…

Free stock alerts, Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings for Jan 16, 2009

This post is to announce that the latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ. Each week we scan over 7400 stocks and ETFs looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. We apply a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques to identify those stocks that are beginning to move. Our goal is to identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside.

Wait, there's more...

We also use the Alert HQ process to generate more free lists of stocks and ETFs

The first byproduct of the Alert HQ process is the Trend Leaders list, our collection of stocks in strong up-trends. These stocks are registering strong signals using Aroon analysis, DMI and MACD. They are also above their 50-day exponential moving average. This week's list is now available at the TradeRadar site on the Trend Leaders page.

As another byproduct of the Alert HQ process we have generated a list of stocks that have broken either above their upper…
