1. New Scan Option: Filter Only *Your* Stocks

    The other day somebody asked me if there was a way to run a scan and only see results from his watchlists.  There was not, but after discussing it for a while I saw how it could be useful to those who like to trade from a specific set of stocks.   

    So I've now added the ability to run scans against just the stocks which are in your watchlists and portfolios.  Just check the box next to "Only My Stocks" in the form where you enter your scan criteria.

  2. Market Cap Scan Filter Plus More Fundamental Data

    I have some good news for the many people who have asked me for a market cap scan filter.  As of today you can finally filter by that piece of fundamental data,  You'll see a couple of new parameters in the form where you enter your scan criteria.  Those news parameters allow you to choose values for a minimum and a maximum market cap.

  3. Streamlined Adding of Stocks to Portfolios

    I just made it a little easier to add stocks to portfolio lists in the app.  Before you were required to enter the number of shares and the entry price.  Those values are still required but they now get automatically set to default values (100 shares & the average price from the latest full trading day).  So now you can just click the "Add to Portfolio" button without making any other adjustments.  

    This should come in handy for those who don't particularly want to track actual P&L within SwingTradeBot but, instead, want to track more stocks in order to get alerts/signals on them.  This makes it easier to use a portfolio as an additional watchlist.

  4. SwingTradeBot Expands to Seven More Global Stock Markets

    Shortly after SwingTradeBot went live (with coverage of US listed stocks -- NYSE, Nasdaq & AMEX) a few years ago people started asking me if I could add coverage of various foreign (to me) markets.  My answer was always "yes, I just need a data source for those markets".  I also needed to make some changes to the "engine" to make it a bit more generic and to be capable of hadling other markets.

    Well I've been tweaking things over the last few months and I'm happy to announce the launch of seven more sites covering the following markets:

  10. New Scan: Trends in Multiple Timeframes

    I just added another new scan thanks to Rick, who pointed out to me that this functionality was missing.  As I told him, I guess I was too close to the forest to see the trees.  I should have had this scan a long time ago, given that I've had the trend tables on the stocks since day one.  So this scan allows you to find stocks based on what appears in the trend table on the individual stock pages.  For example, BERY, which yesterday had this trend table:

    BERY's Trend Table

    • Long-Term Trend: Up
    • Intermediate-Term Trend: Up
    • Short-Term Trend: Down
