The view from Alert HQ --

Markets exhibited holiday cheer this week with the S&P 500 making a new high and the NASDAQ looking like it's really breaking out. Even a laggard like the Russell 2000 has surged to a new high.

The improved tone is quite apparent in our Alert HQ signals.

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, the Trend Leaders list has gone from barely 300 stocks and ETFs to 551 this week. There is a nice proportion on tech on the list of most recent additions but, in general, many sectors are represented and that suggests the gains are broadbased.

The Alert HQ BUY signals are also increasing in number while on the Swing Signals and Trend Busters lists, BUY signals strongly outnumber SELL signals.

All in all, things are looking pretty bullish at this point. I suspect there is still room for stocks to run. In addition to tech, I see a good number of China stocks and ETFs showing up with BUY signals. Healthcare and pharmaceuticals continue to outperform and, in a vote for the economy, it appears that steel stocks are reasserting themselves.

As you can see, with so many sectors looking good, Alert HQ has something for everyone. Take a look today!

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.

This first post in the series starts at the beginning: getting good investment ideas.
