This post is announcing that Tuesday'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:
- 28 Swing Signals -- 17 BUY signals and 11 SELL signals.
- 529 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 155 stocks that are new additions to the list and 80 that fell off the previous list.
- 26 Trend Busters of which 7 are BUY signals and 19 are SELL signals.
- 125 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. 26 are bearish gaps and 99 are bullish gaps.
Stocks continued their winning ways today. The Dow stayed above 11,000 as major indexes again fought their way from a morning deficit and closed with modest gains. Here are some numbers to put things in perspective: looking at the Vanguard Total Market Vipers (VTI), the ETF is up almost 15% from the low set on February 5 but up only 5% from the previous high established January 19. So it's not out of the question that stocks could tack on another couple of percent.
At Alert HQ, today's signals suggest the possibility of further bullishness. BUY signals outnumber SELL signals on the Swing Signals list and the Gap Analysis list. The Trend Leaders list has increased in size though I am sorry to see Anaren (ANEN), a stock we recently profiled, fall off the list. Throwing cold water on the bullish attitude is the Trend Busters list which is dominated by SELL signals.
For those who follow Dow Theory, we have the Dow Jones Industrials making new highs this week and, confirming the bullish move, we see IYT, the iShares Dow Jones Transportation Average Index ETF, being added to the Trend Leaders list today.
With earnings season unfolding, we'll see if values are stretched or whether stocks will be able to push major averages to new highs. In the meantime, look for semiconductors to jump with a nice beat being reported by Intel today. Note that USD, the ProShares Ultra Semiconductor ETF was a new addition to the Trend Leaders list tonight, too. So keep an eye on Alert HQ; we've got lots of good stuff showing up on our lists these days.
