Terrible Tuesday - Swing Signals, Trend Busters and Trend Leaders for July 7, 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:
  • 35 Swing Signals -- 17 BUY signals and 16 SELL Signals plus 2 Strong BUYs.
  • 98 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 22 stocks that are new additions to the list and 120 that fell off the previous list.
  • 40 Trend Busters of which only 9 are BUY signals and 31 are SELL signals.
After last week's sell-off, a terrible Tuesday leaves stocks broadly lower --

Well, today resulted in another shrunken list of Trend Leaders. On the weekend we had 157 stocks and ETFs on the list; after today we're down to 98. Whereas a few weeks ago there were around a thousand, lately we are bouncing around in the one to two hundred range.

Similarly, our Trend Busters list reflects similar weakness as the breakouts to the downside outnumber the breakouts to the upside by roughly three to one.

Our Swing Signals list is about evenly divided between BUY signals and SELL signals but the list is none too long. These last few days there has been no where to hide.

With the trends in the major market averages pointing downward now, it's no surprise that our BUY signals are missing in action. As we approach significant support levels, another couple of bad days and investors might really start running for the exits. My recommendation is that you have your stops in place and maybe a couple of short plays in mind. This could be a time when some of our SELL signals will come in handy. We shall see...

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
