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.Read More ➞

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:Read More ➞

So this was a slow couple of weeks for me. I was out of the country on vacation for most of that period, so I was trying not to do much trading. Also, I don't like to do a whole lot in the heart of earnings season, because the market can often become choppy from one day to the next based on how the reports are each day.
First an update on the positions (CENX & MNTA) I mentioned in the previous Trades of the Week.Read More ➞
