Thursday makes it twelve - Swing Signals, Trend Busters and Trend Leaders for July 23, 2009

A twelve day winning streak? This is no baseball team, this is the NASDAQ I'm talking about. Stocks looked like they might finally take a rest when it was reported that existing home sales came in better than expected. With that news, major averages took off and closed with gains of roughly 2.5%.

The view from Alert HQ --

Our list of Trend Leaders has dwindled a bit since Tuesday but on the whole we still have a good number of stocks and ETFs on the list. And why not, with stocks spiking as they have been for the last two weeks? This list still maintains a bullish tone.

The number of Swing Trading Signals today has increased and we continue to see that the majority are BUY signals. In a good indication of the breadth of this rally, today's BUY signals are widely dispersed across many different industry sectors.

After two weeks of rapidly rising prices, it is a little surprising to see an increase in the Trend Busters list. By now I would have thought that every stock that was going to reverse to the up-side already had. Apparently, there are still some left and they're turning up as BUY signals on our Trend Busters list.

All in all, our signals show a market flexing its muscles. We know nothing goes straight up forever but for now Alert HQ shows that stocks are still on a roll with no real signs of weakness yet.

Thursday's Signals --

Today we have the following:
  • 33 Swing Signals -- consisting of 27 BUY signals, a just 6 SELL Signals.
  • 719 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. There are 339 new stocks that made today's list and only 34 that fell off Tuesday's list.
  • 48 Trend Busters of which 46 are BUY signals and 2 are SELL signals
Using the signals --

As a humble practitioner of technical analysis, I admit that every signal can't be correct. Alert HQ can, however, provide a filtered selection of likely candidates from which investors can choose. 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.

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
