1. Announcing Annual SwingTradeBot Plans!

    I'm happy to announce the launch of annually-billed Pro plans!  I've been asked about a yearly option several times and since I aim to please, here they are.

     

    By opting for a yearly plan you can save up to 30% vs monthly billing.  Annual pricing is the equivalent of:

    • Gold Plan: 2 months free
    • Platinum Plan: 3.5 months free

     You can select annual billing on the Pricing Page.  Just click the appropriate button which has the text "Annual Billing". 


     

    For those of you who are already on a monthly Pro (paid) plan if you switch over any remaining credit on your current plan will be applied to the annual plan's price.  So, for example, if you are on the Gold Plan ($10/month) and switch halfway through your month, $5 will be credited toward the annual plan and you'll only be charged $94 to switch instead of $99.

    As always, I'm happy to answer any questions.  And now it's easier than ever to contact me.  You can just hit me up via the little chat bubble in the bottom of every page on the site.

  2. Site Usage Tips

    Accessing via a Mobile Device:

    I've been asked a few times if there are mobile apps for SwingTradeBot. The answer is no, however, the site is mobile-friendly and is 100% usable on a mobile device. A good portion of my own usage is from my iPhone & iPad, so mobile usability is very important to me. Having said that, when I really want to power through some charts, I do so on my laptop. It's so much faster to be able to open links in new browser tabs and to see all the information at once. (You can also open links in new tabs on mobile but it's just not as seamless & quick.)

    It's "seeing all the information at once" where I had to make some compromises for mobile devices. There are certain places where some of the data is hidden (collapsed) from view on mobile devices. You'll need to make an extra tap in order to reveal the hidden data. On many of the tables you'll see a plus sign on the left side of each row. That signifies that some data has been collapsed/hidden from view in order to make the table fit on the screen.

    You can simply tap the plus sign to reveal the hidden data.

  3. New Feature: List Stock Scans by Type

    I just made some changes to the way the stock scans are displayed.  First, I've moved the "Advanced" scans and combined them with the formerly named "Single Pattern" scans.  So when you go to the scans page you'll see all of the scans listed along with the number of stocks that triggered for each scan.  

    The former Advanced Scans tab now is now "Scans by Type".  I've taken a first crack at applying categories / labels / tags to every scan.  Drilling down through the scans via those groupings should make it easier to home in on scans matching your particular style / strategy.  

    FInally, you may have noticed that some of the scans are marked as "Pro" now.  People with a Pro (paid) subscription have full access to the results of those scans.  If you're not a subscriber, the list of results will be limited for those scans.  

    I have a list of about 10 new Pro scans that I'll be adding over the next several weeks.  So stay tuned for those to pop up.

  4. Custom Chart Indicator Settings

     

     

    Pro users can now customize the appearance of the stock charts on the indivudual stock pages.  So if you'd like to see the phases of the moon on your chart instead of the default Bollinger Bands, here's how you change the settings.

    Navigate to the 'Account' menu and choose the 'Chart Indicator Settings' sub-menu.  That will take you to a page where you can select from the following idicators:

  5. New Features and Pro Plans

    You may have noticed some changes to the site this week. The other day I added three tiers of subscription plans. They are:

    • Free Plan - limited set of features
    • Gold Plan @ $10/month - Pro set of features
    • Platinum Plan @ $17.50/month - Pro set of features+

    I've converted all pre-existing users to the Free Plan. Previously users could add an unlimited number of stocks to their watchlist and portfolio. Now the free plan limits you to 5 stocks on your watchlist and 5 stocks on your portfolio. Note that if you had more than 5 stocks on your lists you will still have those stocks in your lists. However, you won't be able to add new stocks to those lists until the list contains fewer than 5 stocks.

    The Pro plans provide:
