Get Stock Picks and Option Picks That Have a Backtested Edge

We use historical statistics to help you buy low and sell high in the stock market.

Identify Investing Opportunities

Stock Market Guides identifies stock and options trading opportunities that may have a historical track record of profitability.

Never make blind trades again. Our trade alerts put the historical performance of each trade setup at your fingertips.

Get Trade Alerts

Each time we see one of these opportunities, we send you a trade alert that tells you the backtested performance of the trade setup, like this:

Services We Offer

We offer trade alerts for both stock picks and option picks. You can pick a service that sends alerts before the market opens or one that sends them during normal market hours.

We also send out a newsletter with our service that offers trading analysis.

Backtest Results
This is how our stock picks for this service performed in backtests. When we run a backtest, what we’re doing is taking a given trade strategy and looking back at history to see how it may have performed in the past.





Avg. Annualized Return
This takes the average return in backtests of all the stock picks featured in this service and annualizes it.


Easy to Follow

Subscribers get an alert for each trade opportunity we find. We tell you the exact stock or option and a history of that trade setup’s performance, and then you simply decide whether to buy or not.

The alerts can be very convenient for people who have limited time or need to trade on the go.

Flexible Trade Lengths

Our alerts are for trade opportunities designed to last anywhere from 3 days to one year. Our service caters to swing traders and longer-term investors.

Subscribers can easily adjust which trade durations they prefer to get alerts for.

Can I cancel any time?

Absolutely. There is a button on the “My Account” page that allows you to cancel. That will discontinue all future billing. You only get charged for one month at a time, so you are never committed to the service for any longer than the current month.

Will you be available to help if I have questions about any of the trade alerts?

We sure will! You can contact us any time if you have questions about the trade alerts or about anything else related to our service. We’ll be ready to help.

What do I need to get started?

The main thing that you need in order to act on our trade alerts is a way to buy and sell stocks or options, depending on which service you sign up for.

This normally entails having a brokerage account. If you already have a brokerage account, then you’re all set to go. If you don’t yet have one, there are a number of free brokerage accounts available for you to consider. We like Thinkorswim.

I am a beginner. Will this service be a good fit for me?

We work really hard to make sure that our trade alerts are as simple as possible. We hope that makes it easy for beginners to benefit from them.

If you are brand new to trading, we have free guides that can help you. At bare minimum, you need to know how to buy and sell. If you're interested in our stock picking services, you can check out this guide that teaches how to buy and sell stocks. If you're interested in our option picking services, you can check out this beginner's guide to options.
