Where I've hiding...

If you're a regular reader of this blog then you've probably noticed that the posts have few and far between lately.

Well, I've just been overwhelmed with behind the scenes activities and I haven't had the time for blogging.

First, I realized that the Trade-Radar Stock Inspector software was not internationalized properly and our European friends encountered a fatal error each time they tried to display a chart. I've made the changes necessary to accommodate the European way of displaying currency but there is still further testing to be done before I can release the new version of the software.

While I was in the middle of testing the Trade-Radar changes I was contacted by someone who wanted to sell me the Internet domain TradingStockAlerts.com. After thinking about it for a bit, I decided to buy it and, of course, I couldn't resist diving in and creating a new web site.

After messing around with the homepage I created what think is a pretty darn good stock screener. You can check it out at http://tradingstockalerts.com/freestockscreener

It includes all kinds of fundamental data as well as a good dose of technical analysis including moving averages, DMI, MACD and Aroon. Note that the various alerts, reversal signals, Trend Busters, gaps and swing signals are always limited to those that have occurred within the last few weeks. This ensures you aren't wasting your time on signals that are really outdated. It could use a few refinements but for the most part it's complete.

If you poke around the new site, however, you'll see that lots of the pages are actually at the current Trade-Radar.com site. That will change eventually. Here's what I am planning to do.

The Trade-Radar.com web site will be modified to focus on the Trade-Radar Stock Inspector software while the TradingStockAlerts.com web site will be set up to handle all the Alert HQ and Alert HQ Premium signals. It will further be set up to be more interactive and provide more detail (like the new stock screener). Plus, I'll eventually be offering email alerts. A user can submit a watch list and the site will check for changes in each stock's situation including changes in financials as well as in technicals.

Now that I've explained what I've been up to lately and I've encouraged you to play with the new stock screener, I regret that I have to tell you that I'm going on vacation starting Wednesday and I'll be gone for a week and a half. That means no one will be in the office tending the Trade-Radar or TradingStockAlerts sites. That furthermore means the data on both sites will be a bit stale before I get back.

In any case, please do give the new stock screener a try and let me know what you think. Leave a comment here are send me an email.

See you when I get back!!

Running TradeRadar on Windows 7 and Windows 8

Development of the original TradeRadar Stock Inspector software was begun back in the days before Windows 7 and Windows 8 were available.

As these newer versions of Windows have become more popular, we have heard from some users that they are having problems installing and running TradeRadar on their newer PCs.

The good news is that TradeRadar will work just fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8. All you have to do is adjust the Windows Compatibility Settings to ensure TradeRadar runs as intended.

It is recommended that you can apply Compatibility Settings when running the initial installation; however, it is also possible to apply Compatibility Settings after the program has been installed.

Prior to installation
After downloading the install program, go to the folder where you have stored the TradeRadarStkInsp_7_Setup.exe or TradeRadarStkInsp_7_PRO_Setup.exe executable. Right-click on the executable file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Adjust the Compatibility mode to …

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 …
