Vulcan Oracle is a web site that builds itself as a place,
"to get real time stock trading advice without human reaction or emotion.The Vulcan Oracle is a software program, available for both Windows and Mac OS-X, that analyzes stocks in real-time, providing excellent trading advice as the market moves."
I ran across it last weekend while looking for Macintosh-friendly software and/or web-based services for stock trading ideas. Specifically, I wanted to find something that would organize day-trading candidates in user-freindly environment.
After two days of using the software, which is really a very nicely packaged web interface, I find the Vulcan worthy of a Blog and recommend it's generous free trial offer for all of you who are trading during the day. The data is organized in a series of "Stock Lists" which itself is divided by Bullish and Bearish price patterns. Bullish patterns include Big Inflows, Gap-Downs, Trend Reversals and Breakouts, while Bearish Patterns include Downtrends, Gap-Ups, Trend Reversals and Big Outflows. Each pattern is described and organized by user freindly sorting of percent change in price, or percent change in volume, or simply alphabetical. I'm not going to go into detail of all that is available at the site, describing it doesn't do justice to the utility of this information for those of us scalping stock moves day after day.
But I will mention two other features of the service that may be all that is necessary to persuade you to take a look. First, there are published stock trade recommendations with a stellar track record. Second, there is a community chat feature whereby you can talk, or type really, real time with other traders who are doing exactly what you are doing, scalping stocks for a few percent, over and over again, day after day. It's like having a real time blog with me and a dozen other me's, talking about these trades as they are happening.
Enough already. I don't endorse many commercial products here, so if one gets through, you can bet it's worth your while.
