Year-End: Perfect Time to Evaluate your Process

There's a video by David Keller, which I linked in the featured links section, titled: "Re-Evaluating Your Process". It really resonated with me that 3 of his questions were about routines. I certainly recognize the importance of having good routines and sticking to them, which is why I created the routines section of SwingTradeBot. (Here's my original blog post about the routines functionality.)

Even More (Almost) Real-Time Stock Alerts

With the extra volatility these days I'm finding myself checking in on my intraday alerts more frequently. They were a great help in finding some of my favorite names (FSLY & TDOC) bouncing off key levels for day trades last Friday. So I've been thinking of more alerts I could have SwingTradeBot generate. Here's the latest batch:

New ETF Holdings Functionality

I spend an inordinate amount of time updating & cleaning up data that comes into SwingTradeBot. A good portion of that is removing acquired & delisted stocks and filling in missing data for newly listed stocks & ETFs. So I see a ton of ETFs being added to the market every month.

During the pandemic some of the names and/or tickers of these new ETFs piqued my interest -- such as GERM & Work From Home ETF (WFH). So I started wishing I could see their holdings right on SwingTradeBot. Luckily one of my data providers has ETFs components as part of their service. So I wrote some code to start ingesting that data and displaying it on the site.

Site (and App) Updates from the Last Few Months

Here are some new additions to SwingTradeBot from the last few months. 

Earnings Calendar

There's now an earnings calendar section of the site. (It's also listed in the Research Menu.)  This will allow you to go forward in time, unlike the earnings scan.

Filter Scans by Stocks with Options & Weekly Options

For a few months now, you've been able to filter scan results by stocks with options (which are optionable).  Earlier this week, by request, I also added the ability to filter by stocks which have weekly options.  Here is where you can find those filters:

New Feature: Intraday Alerts (and a Mobile App Coming Soon!)

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:

New Feature: Import Stocks into Your Portfolio from a CSV File

For a long time I've wanted to make it easier to keep my SwingTradeBot portfolios in sync with my actual brokerage portfolios.  Today I've come one step closer to that goal.  I just released a new feature which allows you to import stocks into a portfolio from a CSV file.  There's now an 'Import Stocks' button next to the portfolio's name:

Clicking that button will open a pop-up which will allow you to select the CSV file to upload.

You Can Now View Scan Results as a List of Charts

I just released a new feature which will be a huge time saver when looking through scan results.  There's a new option which allow you to see up to 20 charts at a time.  It looks like this:
