  • 27 Trend Busters based on daily data of which 24 are BUY signals. We also have 52 Trend Busters based on weekly data.
  • 168 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. We see 84 downside gaps and 84 upside gaps based on daily data. We also have 56 Gap Signals based on weekly data.
The view from Alert HQ --

Stocks were weak on Monday and Tuesday (whew!, especially on Tuesday where averages were down 1.5%) and then spent the rest of the week struggling to recover. Though we ended the week slightly in the red, it was good to see the market fight back from such a significant deficit.

At Alert HQ, there are signs of returning bullishness in the faster moving indicators. BUY signals based on daily data are rising again, additions to the Trend Leaders list are increasing and BUY signals outnumber SELL signals on the Trend Busters and Swing Signals lists.

This is all good but our weekly Alert HQ reversal signals are still bearish and the weekly Trend Busters list has a big majority of SELL signals. The number of Gaps based on daily data are evenly split between upside and downside gaps.

The upshot of this assessment is that markets are leaning bullish again and next week there is a good, but not great, possibility that we will see further gains. So browse through Alert HQ and be ready if stocks do break out again to the upside!

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 profess

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
