E-Zone System Refresh

Before I get into the E-Zones I want to introduce users of TradingStockAlerts to the Trade-Radar blog. This blog has been in existence for over 10 years but, having experienced "blogger burnout", it has been quite a while since I added any new content. In any case, since Trade-Radar LLC owns and operates and I wanted to tell users about improvements to the E-Zone System, I thought I would bring back to life the old blog and tie it to TradingStockAlerts. So, welcome, readers, I hope you find new posts (or old ones) useful. Now, on to the E-Zones. The E-Zone System was first devised some years ago, prior to the financial crisis of 2007-2008. Since its inception, markets have become ever more fast moving and volatile, with high-speed algorithm-driven trading, ETFs, etc.  It was time to revisit the E-Zone System and ensure that is was still effective in today's environment. To that end, we undertook a rigorous back-testing effort to identify po

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 Compatibilit

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
