1. How SwingTradeBot Helped Me Have a Great Trading Week

    I had a couple of really nice trades this week that I want to discuss.  I half-jokingly tweeted about the first one, chalking it up to dumb luck.  While there was certainly some luck involved, I'm reminded of that old saying about luck:

  2. Filter Scans by Stocks with Options & Weekly Options

    For a few months now, you've been able to filter scan results by stocks with options (which are optionable).  Earlier this week, by request, I also added the ability to filter by stocks which have weekly options.  Here is where you can find those filters:

  3. iPhone App Log-Out Issue has been Fixed

    I finally figured out what was causing the inability to stay logged in on the SwingTradeBot iOS app.  The fix has been released and you should now be able to remian logged in for 30 days at a time.  You don't need to update the app, just log in and you should be good to go.

    I'm glad to have this problem solved and am looking forward to getting back to building out the app's functionality.

  8. New Feature: Intraday Alerts (and a Mobile App Coming Soon!)

    Update: The SwingTradeBot mobile app has been released for both Android and iOS.  

    You may have seen some new links around the site today.  I've added some intraday alerts ito the mix.  These alerts are *near real time* -- they may be delayed from 1 - 20 minutes.  But I think they're still very useful, as long as you're not trying to be a scalper with them. 

    You'll be able to select from a list of things to which you want to be alerted.  This functionality is in beta now and it may be a little buggy.  I'll be tweaking things over the next few days.  So if you noticed anything weird please let me know.

    Oh, I should add that these are only available on the US (Nasdaq, NYSE and Amex) version of the site.  That's because that's the only version of the site for which I have intraday quotes. (Edit on May 8th: They are now also available for the Australia/ASX, Canada and UK/LSE markets.)  If I can find a reasonbly priced quote source for Canada, Austrailia and the UK, then I'll turn on these alerts for those markets as well.

    Here's the initial list of alerts:
