New version of Trade-Radar Stock Inspector is released

Yes, at long, long last a new version is available! I am very please to be able to announce that Stock Inspector Version 7 is here and it is guaranteed to make finding Buy and Sell signals simpler.

The major new features in this version significantly improve the ease of use of the program and add valuable new functionality. Here is a quick overview: 

New Watch List and Watch List Reports plus Automated Data Download and Signal Generation

Watch List functionality has been added:
  • Click a checkbox on the Dashboard screen to designate a stock to be on the Watch List
  • Ability to run unattended Batch Load updates for all Watch List stocks - downloads latest stock data and fundamentals and automatically generates up-to-date Buy/Sell signals viewable in Watch List reports
  • Two reports have been created to monitor the results of data loading and signal analysis
    • Watch List – All Signals Report: shows the result of analysis from the point of view of both BUY signal and SELL signal for each stock
    • Watch List - Primary Signals Report: this report shows you the current valid signal being generated by the latest data for each stock on your Watch List
  • New toolbar button that allows you to filter the stock list to just Watch List stocks
  • Ability to sort Primary Signals report data and display in two views:
    • Tabular spreadsheet format – supports the following features:
      • Ability to sort data prior to running report
      • While viewing report, sort data by double-clicking on column headings
      • Launch pop-up chart by double-clicking on stock symbol
      • Rows are color-coded so you can quickly identify Buy/Hold/Sell situations
    • Standard report format
      • Print-ready report showing latest signal status
      • Ability to sort data prior to running report

Enhanced chart screen and trading style control

The program can now be adjusted to support different kinds of trading styles. If you are a very short-term trader or a long-term buy-and-hold investor, the program now allows you to tailor the way the Buy and Sell signals are generated to conform with your individual time horizon.

The Chart screen now has a drop-down that allows you to set the data window for signal evaluation. You can select a Short-Term signal, a Medium-Term signal and a Long-Term signal.

For example, when set to Short-Term, the program will zero in on the most recent price data and look for reversals within that small window of time. Larger trends only apparent over the long term may be ignored but quick, tradable price movements within those larger trends may be identified and allow quick trading in and out of a stock. Indeed, this may be the most reliable way to use Stock Inspector! Try it and see!

Dashboard – modified indicators

Changed the action of the following Trade-Radar proprietary technical analysis indicators:
  • “In the Zone” indicator – program now takes into account Signal Strength and the Trend and Slope Indicators when determining whether a BUY or SELL signal is truly valid
  • Trend Diff – if there is no inflection point (no bend in the slope line) then Trend Diff is evaluated in terms of whether it is extending the current signal and may be set to Green. Previously, it forced the Trend Diff indicator to Red
  • Minor bug fixes

Charts – several important new features

  • Program is more sensitive to new, emerging signals
  • When you switch signals, i.e., going from looking for a BUY signal to looking for a SELL signal, the program uses all available data to identify the signal
  • Style Drop-down – allows you to select whether to look for a Short-Term signal, a Medium-Term signal and a Long-Term signal. Going from Short to Medium to Long-Term allows you to look for progressively longer-term signals across wider swaths of data
  • Added new Previous/Next buttons that allow you to sequence through the list of stocks and automatically display the latest chart. No need to pick the stock from the drop-down list of symbols.

Program Preferences

  • Added a new Chart setting:
    • Select line thickness for slope lines and moving averages on charts: thick or thin
  • Added new Time Period settings to control width of Data Window used for analysis:
    • Define how many days of data is required for a Short-Term signal, a Medium-Term signal and a Long-Term signal
    • Select from a drop-down which style of signal should be the default when you open up a chart: a Short-Term signal, a Medium-Term signal and a Long-Term signal

Stock Inspector is now available at two price points

During the 45-day evaluation period, users will have unlimited access to all functionality in the program.

After the evaluation period ends, users will only have access to charts and portfolio data. The Dashboard will be disabled and users will lose access to the automated data download and signal generation and all the reports including the tabular report.

To enable the program’s premium features, purchase of a registration key is required. Two types of registration are available:

  1. For those users with more modest needs, we offer a lower priced standard version.

  1. For those traders and power users who can make best use of all the automation we now offer a PRO version at a slightly higher price point.

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 …

Durable Goods report for Sept just so-so but Computer segment is on fire

The Durable Goods advanced report for September 2011 was released on Wednesday.

I like to dig into the Durable Goods report because it can be useful for seeing how tech in aggregate is performing and how the sector may perform in the future. I always focus on two particular measures: shipments and new orders. Let's see how it played out last month.

Shipments -- 

I generally give less importance to Shipments since this is a backward looking measure reflecting orders that have been confirmed, manufactured and shipped. It's similar to earnings reports -- it's good to know but the data is in the past and we're more interested in the future. The following chart shows how September shipments looked for the overall tech sector:

Results for the overall tech sector were a bit weak but take a look at the next chart which tracks the Computers and related products segment:

Results here were actually quite good and, to make things even better, the previous month was revised upward.


Alert HQ has moved!

End of an era!

This site was started way back in 2006/2007 to showcase my blog posts and the Alert HQ buy signals and sell signals. Alert HQ grew to include other kinds of stock alerts including Swing Signals, Trend Busters, Trend Leaders, Cash Flow Kings and more.

In the meantime, I built a sister site, and I started using some of the same Alert HQ content over there. As a result, I am discontinuing the Alert HQ data here at

The good news, however, is that all the Alert HQ signals and stock screens are still completely free. In addition, the pages have been enhanced so that you can hover over a stock symbol and a small chart will pop up so you can get a quick look at the stock's recent price action. If you click on a symbol it will take you to a page with plenty of financial and technical analysis information (still free!) as well as a larger chart that you can play with in terms of adding or deleting indicators, moving averages, etc.
