Weekend Winners and Losers - Alert HQ BUY and SELL signals for October 30, 2009

This is a quick post announcing that the weekend's stock signals are now available at Alert HQ.

Today we have the following:
  • Based on daily data, we have 1 Alert HQ BUY signal and 458 SELL signals
  • Based on weekly data, we have 1 Alert HQ BUY signal and 80 SELL signals
  • We have 260 Bollinger Band Breakouts based on daily data and 201 Breakouts based on weekly data.
  • We have 849 Cash Flow Kings
  • 45 Swing Signals -- 44 BUY signals and 1 SELL Signal.
  • 58 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 10 stocks that are new additions to the list and 40 that fell off the previous list.
  • 162 Trend Busters based on daily data of which 25 are BUY signals and 137 are SELL signals. We also have 219 Trend Busters based on weekly data.
  • 231 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. We also have 65 Gap Signals based on weekly data.
The view from Alert HQ --

Looks like no treats for investors this Halloween weekend. Instead, traders have to digest losses ranging from 2.6% on the Dow to 6.3% on the Russell 2000. Trend lines were broken and 50-day moving averages were violated. Despite the GDP-driven rally on Thursday, it was not a pretty week.

Our signals today show the effects, with SELL signals well outnumbering BUY signals and the Trend Leaders list whittled down to less than 60 stocks out of the 7200 or so we evaluate each weekend.

Interestingly, there were quite a few stocks that refused to sink with the markets on Friday. Many of these stocks populate our Swing Signals list this weekend. Check out Athena Health (ATHN), for example, Direct TV (DTV), Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Zumiez (ZUMZ). This implies there is still life life left in the dip-buyers and that there is hope for this market.

Yes, stocks ended the week in trouble but I'd be very surprised if markets fell more than 3% or 4% further from here. When we can call it a real correction, then I suspect it will be time to start buying again. Keep an eye on Alert HQ, we always have a great variety of investment candidates.

Using our signals --

Visit Alert HQ to view or download your free lists of stock alerts. The alerts based on weekly data show those stocks that have exhibited some good follow-through after a recent trend reversal. If you want to be early in identifying the newest trend reversals, the lists based on daily data are for you. No matter which preference you have, there are bound to be a few stocks you will want to add to your watch list.

If you're a momentum trader, the Trend Leaders list is a good place to go shopping. If you have no faith in technical analysis, the Cash Flow Kings may be just what you are looking for. If you do favor 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. See them all at Alert HQ.

Unlock Stock Market Profits - Key #1

This is the first in an ongoing series of articles where I discuss what I feel are keys to successful investing. It is based on a post that provides a summary of the ten keys that individual investors should use to identify profitable stock trades. (Click here to read the original post)

There are two basic steps to investing. First, you need to find stocks that seem to have some potential. Then you have to determine whether these stocks are actually good investments. 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.

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 …

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…
