Vulcan Oracle

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.

I would like to disagree with you, in the most respectful way possible.

I've been using TBSP's Right Time MS-DOS software package since 1989. Superb. No reason to switch.

If you are looking for gaps, etc. the best software is "Pattern Smasher."

I'm new tradin in us. Got some profits out from trading one of the highest flying bourse of the last 5 years. But this is a complex ball game here. I started with Changewave from Toby Smith...He's a showman and a salesman...so I turned to Hulbert and chose one newsletter from the top performance and a couple from the top ten and some others. In all, I paid about 1000$ and have made about $7000 in a couple months by picking a few trades on selected recomendations. The results are ok, but I still am not convinced this is the way to go. I find too many loosers in all recommended portfolios. So, I'm hesitant as to commit more funds.

Going too long here, so, I'll like to know which are the respected and more followed newsletters around, or where to read posts about this subject.
Thanks in advance for the advise.

Ps. I read a post the other day of a stock picking service that charged $100 monthly fees, only in up months. Apparently it had good results which it posted. I saved the link, but it just dissapeared.. if anyone recalls it, thanks

any new hype concerning chid? they seem to have fallen hard

CHID is dead money. There will probably be a small rise into the next ER. Anybody's guess if it'll stay risen -- lots of risk. The way the company's been harping about spectacular revenue numbers due to its recent acquisition...if it doesn't materialize, I wouldn't be surprised to see it down to the $.20s. And if it did, I doubt you would see double unless profit was outrageous. Risk to reward for CHID for me is not so good. I still have a small amount in it. I took most of it out after taking 40% in losses and made it all back by buying BKMP at .0004. Its super high risk (obviously since its currently trading at .0007), but the risk to reward is much better IMHO. I highly recommend you check it out.

tnx for the thoughts on CHID. I hold some and have been trying to do DD on prospects.

Another Tobin Smith infomercial email teaser that sounds disruptive:

Pretty much nobody, outside of polymer engineers, has ever heard of this company.

But once again, our ChangeWave Research Alliance gives us a huge edge over most investors. One of our members contacted me six months ago, so excited he could barely contain himself.

And after I researched the company myself, it was easy to understand his exuberance.

There are some conductive polymers in use today, but they only work in low-voltage applications. But this company’s formula breaks all the old rules.

Here’s what the inventor, and General Manager of the company, has to say about it:

“Ours is the world's only highly conductive polymer. It's conductive enough that you can run heavy current through it, either AC or DC. My gut's telling me this is going to change the electronics world."

We’re talking about an inexpensive plastic—that can be molded in any shape you want—which conducts electricity, radio waves, and heat virtually as well as copper.

And after my colleagues and I looked into all the details ourselves, I think the inventor is at least partly right about that “changing the world” claim.

With the stock around $3, we can pick up a ton of shares cheap. Risk a little money for a pretty good shot at making a fortune—I like those odds.

Allan, Thanks for Vulcan Oracle. Just finished my first week and it is working for me. Joe

curt504 said...

Joe, Allan, I'd be interested in a typical trading day diary, successes, problem scenarios?

tnx curt

curt504 said...

I ment, regarding use of Vulcan.

Allan said...

curt, try looking at the 'Breakout" list for Long ideas, and the 'Gap-up" list for short ideas. Also, the "official" trades taken in the model portfolio have a stellar track record,
