SCTRs INVADE STOCKCHARTS HOMEPAGE, SCAN ENGINE - We are now posting top 10 and bottom 10 lists for our three most popular SCTRs on our homepage. If you haven't heard yet, the "StockCharts Technical Ranks" are a new rating service we provide that assigns a number between 0 and 100 for each stock in a given group. The higher then SCTR, the stronger the stock is technically. For more info, please see our ChartSchool article.
Here's a easy way to see the value of SCTRs (pronounced "Scooters"): Click on the "PerfChart" link in the S&P 500 SCTR area of our homepage. You'll see the performance of the stocks with the Highest current SCTR rating on an interactive PerfChart. Very cool!
By the way, SCTRs are now also integrated in with our Scan Engine. Extra members can now add SCTR ratings to their scan criteria. For example:
[daily sctr.sp5 > 70] and [close > Upper BB(20,2)]
This scan will find all stocks in the S&P 500 with a SCTR rank above 70 that are also above their upper Bollinger Band. Strong performers indeed!
UPCOMING CHANGES TO THE PUBLIC CHARTLIST REWARD SYSTEM - Starting on January 1st, we will be making some changes to how the Public ChartList reward system works. As of January 1st, the following changes will occur:
- All current Hall of Fame designations will expire
- In order to earn Hall of Fame status, a Public ChartList must win the monthly voting contest 6 times and be approved by the StockCharts president.
- The winner of the montly voting contest will receive 1 free month of service. 2nd place will receive 2 free weeks, and 3rd place will receive one free week.
The goal of these changes is to ensure that the Hall of Fame designation remains meaningful to the people that are browsing the Public ChartList area.
