During this time when these signals were being generated, we have sort of had the wind at our backs. The market has been going through a bit of a trading range, which is good for this kind of signal, and early during this last week we had a breakout above the range. These factors helped the gains in the list above.

What is striking, however, is the consistent quality of these signals. This is a small sample, but it does seem that the methodology we have for generating Strong BUY Swing Trading Signals does a good job of finding stocks that are generally in an upward trend that are about to make a move from the vicinity of their lower Bollinger Band to their upper Bollinger Band.

Keep in mind that we announce a new batch of Swing Signals every Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings. Not every batch finds a Strong BUY signal so when we do find one, it is significant.

Keep an eye on the Swing Signal page at TradeRadar Alert HQ. Let's see if we can keep this streak going!
