The R.C. Allen 4-9-18 Moving Average Crossover Discipline
Its Signals & Alerts
On this page we provide a portion of the output of R.C.Allen's alert system. The complete list is reserved for subscribers. We also have other alert systems. For example, you may see a description of the alerts currently included in the StockAlerts subscription, by clicking on Current alert list.
Allen's original system is also being demonstrated on the "Market Review" page. To get a short summary or to order a subscription click on the "Products & Prices" link (third from the top) on the top left of your screen. R.C. Allen's system is a complete buy and sell system.
Alerts are alerts. They are not "buy" or "sell" signals. An alert means "analyze this." When one of our screens flashes an alert, it means only that certain setup conditions have been satisfied. It does not mean that all setup conditions are satisfied for a purchase or short sale. Inasmuch as an alert means only that a single set of conditions has been satisfied, the logical response to an alert is to make a visual inspection of the stock’s chart. Look for reasons to avoid taking action. For example, if the alert is an "Up Alert," look for reasons to avoid buying. One reason would be overhead resistance not far above the current price. If you can find anything that makes you wary or uncomfortable, it would be rational to walk away.
. Please Note
Some people consider these alignments, when complete, to be buy and sell signals rather than "alerts." They act on them without question, and consider any false moves as merely the cost of doing business. Others prefer to think of them as "alerts." For them, a buy or sell may be called for immediately, but sometimes they prefer a subsequent "trigger event." A "trigger event" might be another price move in the crossover direction. However, after an alert is generated, it may take up to a week or more for a "trigger event" (buy or sell signal) to develop. If your strategy is to wait for a subsequent trigger event and two weeks go by without one, we would suggest that it is time to "walk away" from that situation. When our own traders are waiting for a trigger event, they consider the setup to have failed if the trigger event does not materialize within two weeks.
One System Among Several Systems
The "character" of market behavior is in a state of flux. There will be times when none of the "setup" alerts reported by a particular alert system are attractive. In fact, an individual alert system can perform poorly for months at a time. When that happens, even generating new lists every day can be of little help in finding stocks that actually surge after the alert is generated. That's why we personally use a variety of alert systems. When one system isn't working, another may be generating alerts after which the stocks follow through with spectacular surges in price. Our hope is that you will eventually come to see the advantage of having an arsenal of "idea-generators" that can keep you well supplied with good ideas most of the time. The R.C. Allen 4x9x18 crossover system featured here complements the other systems included in our StockAlerts subscription. For example, when it's working well, R.C. Allen's system can give earlier entries and exits than the 5x10x20 system. At other times, the somewhat slower approach of the 5x10x20 system may yield better results. We think the best results can be obtained by using a variety of alert systems as part of a disciplined approach to finding stocks for your watch list. When one system is not working well, there is often another that is. Monitoring a variety of systems and the way their setups evolve is how a person can discover which system to place the most emphasis on at a given time.
The lists provided here are intended to be a kind of "teaser" to encourage you to "upgrade" to a subscription. Subscriber lists of R.C. Allen setups are ranked according to the magnitude of the volume surge on the day of the signal. The top 30 R.C. Allen crossover signals are posted for subscribers daily. However, the lists posted here consiste of stocks taken from below the top 30 stocks (based on magnitude of volume surge) that are on the subscriber's list. We select for display on this page up to a maximum of 10 stocks (numbers 32 to 40) from our master list of R.C. Allen Alerts. If two stocks generate an R.C. Allen crossover alert at the same time, the stock that had the greatest surge in volume at the time of the crossover is the one most likely to follow through with a continuation of the move. However, you should be able to find some pretty good ideas here occasionally. Consider them to be our gift to you for visiting our site..
We have added hundreds of ETFs to our master stock list so that subscribers will have a greater variety of opportunities for investment. Most but not necessarily all ETFs on our master list have the letters ETF after their names to differentiate them from stocks of individual companies. On this Web site, "ETF" is used as a broad generic label. Therefore, Vipers may also have the letters "ETF" added to their names. Most but not necessarily all ETNs are labeled as ETNs. ETFs trade just like any other stocks. Some ETFs are inverse (they go up when the underlying securities in them are going down). Therefore, if the market is bearish, the number of ETFs included in our scanner reports may increase significantly (because they will be rising or undergoing a positive setup pattern). The inclusion of ETFs increases the odds that at any given time there will be purchase candidates, whether a person is bullish or bearish. If your investment approach does not include ETFs, simply ignore any stock with the letters ETF after its name.
The yellow strip at the top of the table below has data (minus name and symbol) for the stock with the greatest surge in volume (see Vol%). It may be rising or declining. The top 30 alerts are reserved for subscribers. Ten locations on our master list are sampled below the top 30 on the subscruber's list. The results are displayed below. A blank space will appear whenever a stock with an alert does not exist at the location sampled. If there are no more than 30 stocks generating an alert on the master list, all rows in the table below will be blank. First-time viewers should read the notes below the table. The stocks listed here are arranged so those with the greatest surge in volume are at the top of the list, just as they are on the subscriber's lists. Stocks are eliminated from the list if their volume has a negative change. Below the table (in the yellow strip), we have noted the number of "Up" and "Dn" crossover alerts there are on a subscriber's list.
NOTICE: There has been a change (read the above for details). Before, we used random number generators to choose which stocks with an alert to display (omitting a select group reserved for subscribers). That resulted, most of the time, in a list of 4 to 5 stocks. Now, all stocks with an alert and that that rank below those on the subscriber's list are displayed (up to 10). Sometimes, depending on market conditions, this may result in none being on display, but there will often be ten stocks on this list. We think this approach will usually provide significantly more candidates for your review most of the time. We think you will find some interesting picks here. Just because a stock is not in the top 30 because its volume did not surge enough to make the list, does not mean it is undesirable. Remember, the stock would not be on this list at all if it had not generated an R.C. Allen signal.

We do NOT recommend that any individual use this trading system for his or her own account. We also do not recommend AGAINST using this system. That is a matter to be decided on by you personally (perhaps with the help of a licensed professional securities consultant). If you use the system and the postings made here, you do so at your own risk.
The Alert System Used Here
A Reason Not to Buy
*The lists you will find here are not personal buy or sell recommendations. They are merely reports of stock activity and technical signals generated by a single specific discipline. However, this system is well-known and widely followed. However, proper alignment is not in itself a sufficient reason to buy or sell a stock. Look at the chart below, for example.
While Allen's discipline is a popular trading system in its own right, the trading members of our company prefer to use it as only one of their screening tools. That is, its output notifies us of the recent emergence of certain technical conditions that make a stock interesting and a candidate for a closer look. We conduct further evaluation and analysis to determine if a stock should be bought or included on our "Watch List." We would suggest that you use the same approach.
In general, we watch for a setup, the absence of significant overhead resistance, and a "trigger event." With regard to this particular screen, a proper setup may exist if a stock is listed on this page and if there is no reason to be apprehensive about the chart pattern. If there is overhead resistance immediately above the current price, there is reason to be apprehensive. If there is no resistance there, a good trigger event might be a follow-through price surge on increasing volume. If the resistance is there, we might still consider it to be a "setup" but modify the trigger event. For example, we might consider an acceptable trigger event to be a follow-through price surge on increasing volume that takes the stock through that resistance. Some experienced traders may even wait for a subsequent test of support at the previous level of resistance and then a resumption of the up-trend.
Instead of using Allen's system to define the setup, some use it to define the trigger event. For example, the trader might look for good setups (a Bollinger squeeze with penetration of upper band, for example). These setups would have a context that is attractive. Then, they would wait for R.C. Allen's discipline to give the final go-ahead.
