Our NEW Price Alerts Feature is Here!

Earlier this week, our Custom Technical Alerts feature for StockCharts Members received a BIG new addition: Price Alerts!

We've made it easier than ever to create simple price alerts for the stocks and funds you're watching. Whether you're waiting for that perfect entry point on a new trade or timing your exit on an existing position, the Price Alerts feature is just for you. Simply enter a symbol, set your trigger price and hit "Save". You'll automatically be notified via email, text or a site banner when the price is hit!

To explore the new Price Alerts feature, visit the Technical Alert Workbench (accessible from the Control Center of your Members Dashboard). The Price Alert builder is now the default view. Enter a symbol, set a price and choose your delivery method, then hit "Save" and you're done! (note, the Advanced Alert builder can be accessed using the button tabs on the top left side of the page)

To further enhance our new Price Alerts tool, we've revamped our "Your Alerts" page with some important upgrades. There are now two separate summary tables (one for your Price Alerts and one for your Advanced Alerts) as well as a summary of our Predefined Alerts. These updates keep everything organized in one location, making the "Alert Center" your one-stop shop for all things alerts!

As part of these exciting new changes, we've also increased the number of alerts that members can create. Extra members can now create up to 10 custom technical alerts, while PRO members can create up to 100. (remember, custom alerts are only available for Extra and PRO members. If you're a Basic member, upgrade your account to take full advantage of these new features!)

Bouncing Dollar Hurts Gold, Rising Rates Boost Copper

Article Image The fact that U.S. rates are rising faster than elsewhere on the globe is boosting the dollar. A rising dollar usually hurts the price of gold. And it is. Chart 1 shows the upturn in the Dollar Index (UUP) near the start of September (when Treasury yields turned up) coinciding with a decline in gold (GLD). It also makes economic sense that a stronger global economy would favor stocks tied to...

Here Are The Best Seasonal Stocks During November In The S&P 500

Article Image There are different ways to view best seasonal stocks depending on whether you're interested solely in average returns for a particular month or time period or if you're interested in the percentage times that a security rises for a particular month or time period.

And it doesn't hurt when a giant tech company left for dead knocks it out of the park. Take a look at the chart below on IBM, a company that has been lagging the market for a long time. but with one earnings announcement IBM reminded the market it still has

Gold Losing Its Shine - New IT Trend Model Neutral Signal Arrives

Article Image I recently wrote about Gold in the DecisionPoint blog. We saw the 20-EMA pull out of its decline to keep its ITTM BUY signal. However, the gravitational pull of price after it couldn't hold support at 1300 was too much and the 20-EMA finished just below the 50-EMA today. An ITTM Neutral signal is generated when the 20-EMA crosses below the 50-EMA while the 50-EMA is above the 200-EMA. Recall
