If you’ve been to the TradingStockAlerts.com site lately you may have noticed the home page has changed. There is a big new emphasis on the E-Zone Trading System. That’s because we are merging the TradingStockAlerts.com web site with the HottingerSignals.com site.
Why the merger?
I was recently contacted by Fritz Hottinger who said that he would like to transition to a role where he was less involved in the day to day activities required to maintain a popular web site. He wanted to know if I would like to take over his site or perhaps merge it with my own.
I opted for the merger. Upon reflection, it seemed that having the E-Zone functionality on the TradingStockAlerts.com web site would provide an end-to-end set of investing capabilities for my users.
In my humble opinion, I think TradingStockAlerts.com offers a great set of tools for finding prime investment ideas among stocks and ETFs. If you’re familiar with the site you know our array of stock screeners, Alert HQ, Stocks to Watch, Top 10 Stocks and more.
Now, once you’ve found a great stock idea, we offer the E-Zone System to help with your trading.
How the E-Zones can guide your trading —
The E-Zone System provides a framework for looking ahead so you can plan your next trade. It develops your personal stock timing and trading signals for the next day and the next week using the latest in genetic programming.
Two sets of numbers project statistically relevant Entry and Exit zones for the next trading period – – one day (or week) ahead. If your investment moves into one of these zones, you are alerted to take action: either Buy or Sell. If your investment moves into the area between the two zones you are instructed to simply Hold.
Basically, the system guides you in and out of your investment, avoiding the pitfalls of buy-and-hold:
- You move to cash when a stock, ETF or fund becomes over-priced. (in the EXIT zone)
- Hold the cash when it’s in a neutral area (between the zones)
- Then re-invest when it becomes reasonably priced. (in the ENTRY zone)
You receive not just a picture of where your stock has been, but a more accurate forward-looking chart with which to track your holdings. Rather than vague buy and sell instructions, you get actual numbers on which to base your orders. Here is an example of a chart that was generated at the end of the day on Friday, 9/28/2012 (note that the Entry and Exit zones are projected into the next trading day, which would be Monday, 10/1):
The red area in the chart is the Exit Zone and the green area is the Entry Zone. In this example, the system would provide the following advice:
- Place an order to SELL at the Open tomorrow if QQQ’s price is between $69.78 and $71.08; in other words, if it is inside the Exit Zone.
- BUY the Open tomorrow if QQQ’s price is between $67.1 and $68.8; in other words, if it is inside the Entry Zone.
The system also takes into account the slope of the Entry and Exit Zones and would provide the following Slope Guidance advice:
- Exit Level is slanting downward so place an order to SELL the Open tomorrow if QQQ’s price is greater than $71.08; in other words, if it is above the Exit Zone.
The E-Zone systems works with stocks, ETFs and mutual funds. The daily zones are ideal for swing traders while the weekly zones can be used by position traders.
