Every day TraderAlerter scans thousands of US Companies on all the major exchanges to find the small number
that are doing something "significant" that we may need to take a closer look at. The first step is to eliminate
all the equities that are not liquid enough to invest in based on proprietary criteria that includes volume, price, market
capitalization and volatility. This gives us our "liquid universe".
The next step is to apply a sophisticated set of filters to find the equities that are doing something significant
right now such as moving up or down rapidly, increasing in volume or volatility, gapping at the open etc. Once we
find these "movers and shakers" we can then apply the other rating criteria which includes fundamental analysis,
sentiment analysis, and finally catalytic event analysis.
The end result of all this analysis, number crunching and filtering is that we throw out the junk so you can focus
right down to the handful of suitable companies that are the best trading and investing opportunities we can find right now.
All this analysis is distilled into the SMART Score which is the foundation for
the SMART Alert. In case you were wondering, SMART stands for Stock Market Analysis
The SMART Score is a rating method developed by PMKing Trading LLC over the last 10 years.
4 main areas of analysis:
Technical Price Action
Comparative Fundamental Industry Analysis
Sentiment and Opinion
Recent Catalytic Events and News
Companies are rated
between -100% (very negative outlook) and +100% (very positive outlook).
A score between -50% and +50% is
considered to be "Neutral" and no action should be taken to enter or exit a position in the company.
Companies with scores at the extremes of the range (greater than +80% or less than -80%) should be added to your portfolio
regardless of long/short balance.
Companies with scores between the neutral zone and the extremes
should be managed with existing positions and long/short portfolio balance in mind as suggested by the recommendations in
each SMART Report.
