Stock signals - what is it?

  • On the basis of the technical analysis, buy and sell signals are determined weekly, which support you in your investment decisions
  • If a buy signal is determined for a share, the underlying model predicts a particularly positive price development when the signal is reached (activation)
  • in the case of a sell-signal, a negative price development is forecast when the signal is reached (activation)
  • activated signals are observed for 10 weeks - so you can check how successfully the signals are developing
  • stocks from the German, European, American and Japanese markets are monitored


New stock signals

  • Share signals are generated once a week (Mondays around 11.30 a.m.)
  • For each market observed, up to 5 securities are included for which the activation of a buy signal is most likely, as well as up to 5 securities for which the activation of a sell signal is most likely
  • A signal is only considered activated if the price of the security in question is above the signal (for buy signals) or below the signal (for sell signals) within the first week
  • the price development is monitored for a week and updated daily


An example

The current price of a share XY is 95 euros. A buy signal of 100 euros is displayed for this value. Based on the technical analysis, the model predicts that the price of this share will develop particularly positively when the signal is reached. Within the first week, the price has now reached 101 euros. This activates the signal and continues to monitor it for the next 10 weeks (signal tracking). This allows you to closely monitor the success of the stock signals.


Signal tracking, chart and risk

Once activated, signals are observed over a period of 10 weeks. Information on the activated signals is available in the "Signal Tracking", "Chart" and "Risk" views.

1. Signal tracking

So that you can easily check how successfully the signals have developed, we show you when an activated signal has made gains of 5 percent, 10 percent or 15 percent for the first time. In the case of sell signals, we show you which losses you have avoided by selling a share.

Example: Activated sell signal 100 EUR, current price 90 EUR. We show you when the security lost 5 percent or 10 percent.

2. Chart

The "Chart" view offers you a visualization of the security development. A vertical line in the chart shows you when the signal was generated, a horizontal line the level of the signal price.

The different profit and loss thresholds are colored in different shades of green and red. So you can see at a glance when you were in the profit zone and which losses you have avoided.

3. Risk

Every investment is associated with risk. In the "Risk" view you will find various key figures that should help you to better assess the investment risk.

Example: The key figure "VaR (1 week)" indicates the maximum loss within a week (with a 95 percent probability).


Proof of success

See for yourself how well the "stock signals" have worked over the past seven years.

  • Example Dax 30: More than 67 percent of all activated signals achieved a maximum gain of over 5 percent within 10 weeks, more than 34 percent of the activated signals even a gain of over 15 percent.
