At the tipping point - Thursday Swing Signals, Trend Busters and Trend Leaders for Sept 17, 2009

This post is announcing that Thursday'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:
  • 40 Swing Signals -- 15 BUY signals and 25 SELL Signals.
  • 1103 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 308 stocks that are new additions to the list and 53 that fell off the previous list.
  • 36 Trend Busters of which 34 are BUY signals and 2 are SELL signals.
The view from Alert HQ --

OK, now I'm really worried.

On Tuesday the list of Trend Leaders had grown to a level that was pretty close to a historical high. Today it has hit what is pretty much the maximum level we have seen at short-term or intermediate market peaks.

Our Swing Signals are now skewing negative. SELL signals are outnumbering BUY signals. This has often been a leading indicator of short-term weakness.

Still keeping the faith is our Trend Busters list. We continue to see a preponderance of BUY signals.

Today's market action was only slightly bearish. Really, stocks didn't fall all that much since most of the economic news was pretty decent. Our signals, however, suggest we have seen the highs for the near-term and that a modest pullback could easily be the next phase in this market. Nevertheless, I'd be surprised if stocks fell more than 3% or 4%. In other words, I remain bullish and this could be an opportunity for dip-buyers.

So keeping checking our site. We're finding plenty of opportunities and we post them three times a week.

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.

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
