Quick Guide to Stockoodles.com

Stockoodles.com is a premier stock and ETF signaling and screening system. The site provides users with Buy, Sell and Hold signals that are based on a proprietary indicator of price trend. You will find that each tab contains either stocks or ETF’s. You will only find tradable (meaning, I can buy and sell it in my brokerage account) instruments on the site not just simple index quotes.

Functionality and FAQ

  • Data is currently only US and CANADA Stocks and ETFs.
  • CANADA Symbols add .TO and .TX for Toronto and TSX Exchanges.
  • Clicking on any symbol or row will take you to the charts page.
  • All data is at least 15 min delayed.
  • All screens are synced with the current days trading at 7:30PM EST, that’s 4:30PM PST and 5:30PM MST. This means if you are on the site before that time the tabs and screens will be showing the previous trading day signals. Remember that the chart page will show the current day trading signal. The Chart and tab screens are synced for the current trading day after 7:30Pm EST
  • Signals are EOD (End-of-Day) on the screens and tabs as of the previous trading day.
  • Signals are based on our proprietary indicator of price trend. It basically combines 6 or 7 technical trend indicators into a more useful format.
  • If US markets are open, charts will show the current trading day signal and can be different than that shown on screen pages.
  • Trend Signals current day, 15 min delayed. This signal can change on column displays during the trading day.
  • Top Stocks and Top ETF’s Tabs are predefined screens. Criteria for the screens are shown at the bottom of each tab.
  • If a chart loads blank, click on update or refresh, if it does not load we don’t have data for the stock chart. It still may have a quote, but there may not be enough price history to plot the chart signals.
  • If Rank Says NR or Not Ranked it is Not Ranked. Stocks and ETF’s are only ranked if over $5 and older than 1 year from issue date.
  • Stocks under $5 are not ranked and will display a rank of 0.
  • Rank is the rank of the stock or ETF vs. its peers. For example a Rank of 98 means the stock or ETF is out performing 98% of its peers over a 12 month period. A rank of 2 means the stock or ETF is outperforming 2% of its peers, in other words, 98% of its peers are out performing it. 98 is good, 2 is not so good. The current quarter is 40% of the weighting, so current performance is more significant to the rank. Stocks are ranked against stocks and ETF’s are ranked against other ETF’s.
  • Short Term Trends are the 7-10 day trend.
  • Long Term Trends are the 180 day trend.
  • Signals generally provide a 6-8 week trade.
  • Most stocks and ETF’s get 4-6 long (buy the stock or ETF on buy signal and sell on the sell signal) trade signals per year.
  • Basic trade strategy is buy the day after a buy signal is given, then sell the day after the sell signal is given. The opposite can be done in the case of shorting stocks.
  • Trailing stop losses are recommended.
