Get Swing Trade Alerts in Real Time by Text or Email

All our trade alerts have a backtested statistical edge.

Swing Trade Alerts Service

At Stock Market Guides, we offer a swing trade service where an alert is sent for each new pick we make. We use historical statistics to help you buy low and sell high in the stock market using swing trades.

Our service only features swing trading opportunities that have a quantitative backtested edge. We don’t shoot from the hip with trade ideas here. We rely exclusively on the data.

This ensures that if you get a swing trade alert, it’s because there is a trade opportunity that has a track record of success in backtests. We cater to both stocks and options here, so you can get alerts for whichever you prefer.

At Stock Market Guides, we give you access to plenty of data to help you decide which swing trading opportunities you want alerts for. We show things like the historical backtested win percentage and profitability for each featured trading strategy.

Swing Trading Alerts

Here’s an example of what one of our swing trade alerts looks like. Each alert indicates the full scope of the trade idea for those who want to follow it: the ticker symbol, when to buy it, and when to sell it.

(sample trade alert)

You can see that our swing trade alert reflects a specific trading strategy and time frame. It also shows how that strategy has performed historically according to backtests, both in terms of wins, losses, and return on investment.

We feel that if we’re going to try to offer the best swing trade alerts possible, they need to be easy to follow, have a track record of success, and be transparent.

Swing trading in the stock market involves risk, even when trade setups have a strong history of profitability. You can dial your risk down or up by adjusting your position sizing or the number of trades you take.

The more risk that’s taken, the higher the potential for drawdowns. You can also start out by paper trading stocks to get a feel for the trades before putting real money at risk.

Features of Our Swing Trading Service

Anyone who signs up for our Swing Trading Service gets access to all these features:

Pre-Market Stock Picks and Option Picks

These are picks we share before the stock market opens. They are typically sent at 5:30 a.m. Eastern Time, about four hours before the opening bell.

These stock and option picks cater well to people who are not able to manage swing trades during the workday. Subscribers can use the trade alerts to set up swing trades before the market opens.

Market Hours Stock Picks and Option Picks

These are picks we share throughout the trading day during normal stock market hours. You get real-time swing trade alerts as each new pick gets published.

These cater well to people who are available throughout the day to manage swing trades.

Guidance from Swing Trading Experts

We have swing trading experts who offer commentary on a regular basis regarding both our trade alerts and the general state of the market. Their commentary gets sent out to the group in an email newsletter.

These experts are readily available for any questions you might have along the way.

Swing Trade Alerts That Are Easy to Follow

phone notification icon

Trade alerts for our Pre-Market Swing Picks are sent by email before the market opens. Trade alerts for our Market Hours Swing Picks are sent in real time by either text or email, depending on your preference.

Our swing trade alerts show you a specific trade idea that indicates exactly when to buy and sell. You can be alerted when the trade ends, too.

Rather than spending a lot of time each day in front of a computer screen doing research on which swing trades to make, you can get these trade alerts and can spend just minutes per day making your trades.

We only send alerts for buying stocks or call options, not shorting them. Of all the research we’ve done, we’ve never found a long-term mechanical edge to shorting stocks or buying puts.

Alerts for Many Types of Swing Trades

At Stock Market Guides, we offer a wide variety of swing trading opportunities that you can consider. Here are some examples of different types of trades that you can get alerts for:

The quantity of swing trade alerts we offer will fluctuate each day based on market conditions. Many days there will be several picks to choose from. Some days, there might be none.

The stocks and options we feature are typically for companies that have significant market capitalizations, which means they are normally for major, well-established companies.

If the alert is for an option swing trade, it will indicate a ticker, strike price, and expiration date so that you know the exact option to consider.

Swing Trade Duration

Some swing traders might like to hold their positions for just a few days, while others might like to hold them for a few months. Some are in between. Our service accommodates them all. You can choose to get alerts for any of these swing trade durations.

Learn Swing Trading

Swing trading is where you make trades that last more than one day but are not long term holds. It’s in between day trading and long-term investing. If you are swing trading, you might own a given stock or option for a matter of days or weeks, not years.

If you don’t know exactly how to buy and sell in the stock market, you can use our free stock guides or options guides to learn the basics.

Once you sign up for the service, you’ll also find tutorials that teach our swing trading strategies in detail so that you can learn to trade them on your own if you want.

Our goal is to make sure you will have the tools to be able to successfully follow our swing trade alerts no matter what your trading expertise level is. And if questions come up along the way, you can contact us any time and we’ll be ready to help.

I work full time. Can I still follow the swing trade alerts?

Absolutely. That’s one of the benefits of getting alerts from Stock Market Guides. You don’t have to sit around watching the screen and waiting for a swing trade to set up. You can simply get an alert when it’s time for your attention. We do all the work for you of identifying the exact stock or option to consider so that when you get the alert you can go to your trading platform and quickly decide if you want to consider the trade. Alerts allow for on-the-go trading.

What time of day do the swing trading alerts get sent?

Both our stock and option services include two different segments of trade alerts: Pre-Market Picks and Market Hours Picks. Our Pre-Market Picks are sent out before the market opens each trading day. Our Market Hours Picks are alerted throughout the trading day between 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pacific Time.

How are swing trade alerts sent?

For our Pre-Market Picks, we send alerts by email. For our Market Hours Picks, you choose between getting email alerts or text alerts to your phone. You can toggle your alerts setting at any time.
