Breakout beginning - Alert HQ signals for Tuesday, Dec 22, 2009

This post is announcing that Thursday's Swing Signals, Trend Leaders, Trend Busters and Gap Signals are now available at Alert HQ. All are based on daily data.

Today we have the following:
  • 46 Swing Signals -- 39 BUY signals and 7 SELL Signals.
  • 379 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 150 stocks that are new additions to the list and 72 that fell off the previous list.
  • 88 Trend Busters of which 83 are BUY signals and 5 are SELL signals.
  • 171 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. 85 are bearish gaps and 86 are bullish gaps.
The view from Alert HQ --

On the weekend I asked whether tech could lead the market higher. We almost have the answer. The NASDAQ appears to breaking out to the upside. The other major averages have not been able to follow suit, at least not yet.

Our signals tonight, though, make me optimistic that we'll see the S&P 500, the Dow and the Russell 2000 catch up to the NASDAQ.

Tonight we have a nicely bullish set of signals. The Swing Signals and Trend Busters lists both have expanding numbers of BUY signals that are thoroughly outnumbering the SELL signals. The Trend Leaders list is also growing and the number of stocks being added to the list is double the number that fell off the list. This shows less rotation and more stocks exhibiting strong bullish trending. Even the Gap Analysis list shows a majority of bullish upside gaps compared to bearish downside gaps.

So across the board we have a set a good signals tonight.Dig in, take a close look and find a few stocks that fit your investment style.

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 or Gap Signals may provide some good trading ideas.
