  • 252 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. We also have 55 Gap Signals based on weekly data.
The view from Alert HQ --

All the major averages gained roughly 3% this week. That seems to have effectively ended the recent pullback before it could become a correction.

Accordingly, we've got Alert HQ BUY signals busting out all over. At least that's true in those situations where we are basing our signals on daily data. Where we are using weekly data, we get the opposite situation. This implies the move in our daily data has not yet been confirmed by the weekly data; therefore, there is still some risk in this market.

Currently, we see that stocks are evenly split: half are above their 20-DMA, half are below, half are above their 50-DMA and half are below. This is an improvement from last week but leaves the overall outlook somewhat uncertain.

So if you are comfortable being on the leading edge and are looking to go long, be sure to check out our BUY signals based on daily data. We also see BUY signals outnumber SELL signals by a wide margin on our lists of Swing Trading Signals, Trend Busters and the Gap analysis list. Little by little, the number of stocks and ETFs has been increasing on our Trend Leaders list.

I've stated before that I am optimist. I am looking at this past week's action as confirmation that the primary trend remains UP. I think that, looking back, this past week will turn out to have been a good time to buy stocks. And very likely, next week will provide some opportunities, too.

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 …

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

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…

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 anything that ca…
