Recently, it seems many of the websites, trendsâˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ and applications IâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢ve reviewed in this space have all been given the same caveat: These are great ideas, but in a flat-lining economy when the family dog sees everyone sharing his kibble, theyâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢re doomed to be poorly timed afterthoughts.
Finally, a new start-up has the fortune of launching right before NoahâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s Ark is seen floating down Wall StreetâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Â¶and all that other biblical, post-apocalyptic mumbo jumbo.
Alerts4All is a just-launched stock trading alert application that provides easy-to-use features that the big boy stock sites often lack. And right away, I was impressed with the simple and effective interface, considering eTradeâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s chaotic layout is enough to trigger a panic attack in the savviest of users. Trying to find my portfolioâˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ on the venerable stock siteâˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ is like trying to find razorblades in Walgreen’s. It should be easy, but for some reason itâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s not. Fast forward 20 minutes later and youâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢re lost and crying by the one-hour photo counter.
I plugged in my sad-sack Circuit City stock into the Alerts4All virtual ticker âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ãº yes I really do own this pathetic penny stock âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ„Ãº and was able to program Alerts4All to tell me when itâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢s price falls 10 percent, when trends manifest, and how to get out when my stock peaks. I can receive these alerts via email, SMS and RSS. (Too bad Alerts4All canâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢t tell me when the Dutch will buy New Amsterdam for $17 worth of beads and my Circuit City stock.)
As I mentioned up top, in an economy when traders are handling stocks like premature bubble babies, Alerts4All should be able to count on a lot of action from nervous investors and anxious spouses of day traders.âˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ Saddle up withâˆšÃ‡Â¬â€ your 30-day trial today and breath a little easier.
