The objective of the strategy is to grow a portfolios of stocks value year on year regardless of movements in the wider market. The key plank of this strategy is to maximise gains and keep capital safe. Stock selection for our trading models is determined by a consistent and systematic method, based on an algorithm I have developed, the Trend Intensity Indicator, to identify up-trending stocks. It combines the price trend, volume, moving averages, and momentum price indicators to identify stocks in the early stages of a new uptrend. The Trend Intensity Indicator rates a stock between +10 and -10. Stockradar’s main page the Trading Centre, identifies all qualified trending stocks each with the own Trend Intensity Rating.
Stockradar’s weekly based model delivers consistent absolute returns in a both bull and bear phases with 18 years of published results. This systematic trend following strategy is protected by predetermined risk limits on all positions to ensure the safety of capital.
These price trend identification conditions are then weighted into the Trend Intensity Indicator rating.
All signals are triggered by Fridays weekly close and benchmarked against Mondays opening prices
A simple money management process that effectively cuts out the big losses and leverages stock trends.
There are four potential outcomes of a trade:
Small wins and losses effectively cancel themselves out. Big losses are excluded by our strict money management process so that leaves us with the big wins and that’s the key driver of portfolio growth.
Members occasionally ask me for more information about how we construct and manage a portfolio of stocks, so I briefly outline the process below for you.
PURPOSE:The Stockradar Portfolio Service is aimed at clients who would like more closely assisted guidance on running a portfolio than the Basic Stockradar membership offers. (See our services here) The Stock Picks we generate using the above stock selection template applied to over 160 stocks are then built into smaller defined portfolios by using controlled filters such as sector limits, balanced equity allocations and other necessary portfolio management criteria. There are two types.
A) Conservative portfolio:
A universe of 20 stocks has been defined and consists of top stocks across each sector for both safety and diversity. For example, with a capital base of $200k you allocate equal amounts across the portfolio for each of the 20 allocations. i.e., in this case $10k is the apportioned allocation. You buy a stock when you a signal is generated from the Stockradar model; otherwise, that portion remains in cash. This gives your ‘binary’ portfolio of either an equity or cash component for each of the 20 allocations.
B) Supercharge your portfolio with the Energiser Portfolio:
This portfolio leverages our stock picks by increasing the stock universe to the Top 100 Stockradar stocks that we select from. This translates into more stocks qualifying and thus the equity component of this portfolio is thus far higher.
With the Stockradar model portfolio service you gain access to a live 24/7 Share Trade Tracker with a comprehensive trade sheet and a ‘dashboard’ that breaks down your share-trading performance into one simple view.
Portfolio members execute their own trades on their own online trading platforms. This keeps trading costs to a minimum. All monies remain in your own name and account.

Stockradar is key in giving a great heads up over investment advisory services. Analysis of stock-market price behaviour is an indispensible and necessary tool that runs ahead of not-yet-publicly declared news. The weekly entry/exit model format is a welcome and wise release. Like any ‘system’ it does not offer a nirvana-heaven for investors but is an extremely sound and vital investment tool. – Stephen Marshall – Stockbroker, Ord Minnett
I joined ‘X’ broker early in July 2015 with $500,600. It seemed a good idea. ‘X’ broker would stock pick and actively manage the SMSF. Sadly my portfolio diminished to $400,500. That’s a loss of $100.000 in less than a year. It turned out to be set and forget with a focus on Banks and dividends. I lost 25 % on NAB and they told me we still like the stock. I have a number of stocks that have been in the red from the day I bought them. I joined Stockradar and started instructing my adviser what to buy. I am seeing greens shoots all over my portfolio. ANN up 6% CTD up 19%, ORA up 9%, SEK up 2%, SIP up 31% VOC up 10%. – Mervyn J
