An ever-wider range of technical analysis is becoming available at the click of a mouse. Nick Sudbury picks some packages that can help punters make hard cash with software.
Timetotrade from Sensatus is a web-based charting and alerting service for people who use price movement and technical analysis to judge when to buy or sell stocks. Subscribers can use the charting features on the website to develop their strategies and then create rule-based alerts that, when triggered, are sent instantly to their mobile phones, emails or instant messenger accounts.
Alerts can be based on price movement, volume or more advanced triggers incorporating technical indicators such as RSI or MACD crossovers. This enables them to monitor their existing UK and US shareholdings and potential trades while away from their computers.
Dary Mc Govern, MD of Sensatus, says that Sun Microsystems provides a prime example of how this type of approach can work. He had identified the shares as a good long-term investment but wanted to wait for a suitable entry point. ‘In April 2006 Sun started to pull back towards it long-term trendline.
A Timetotrade alert was set up to provide notification of a positive MACD crossover using a one-week interval period, the idea being to buy into an established upward trend after a recent low, ideally at a support trendline or level,’ he says.The alert was triggered on 31 July 2006, when the shares were trading in the $4 range. At the time, Sun had pulled back to test the support trendline and then rallied. Since that point, the company has made a series of positive announcements and has now returned to profitability. The shares are currently trading in the high $6 range with a Timetotrade alert monitoring for a change of trend, which would signify the exit point.
Timetotrade operates a free basic account but, for those who want the premium features, the swing trader package costs £9.99 and the day trader option is £19.99 a month, see www.timetotrade.co.uk for more details.
