PRLog - Oct. 22, 2010 - MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. -- www.EquityTrader.com has been an extremely popular charting and stock picking service since its inception in 1998. Now the site has been relaunched utilizing the latest web technologies. The new EquityTrader offers state-of-the art equities charts with interactive and highly customizable features to clarify and simplify traders’ investment decisions.
EquityTrader was designed by John Bollinger, the developer of Bollinger Bands. The charts include Bollinger Bands and a wide array of technical indicators to help investors evaluate the market. Bollinger says about the redesign “the information and functionality available on EquityTrader gives traders the tools they need to make sound investment decisions, and the graphics make it easier to grasp how stocks are performing intuitively.”
A unique feature of EquityTrader is a 54-rule fuzzy logic model that evaluates stocks in two dimensions: how they have performed in the past and how they are expected to perform in the current market.
Innovative and also unique to EquityTrader is the graphic presentation of a stock’s potential and past performance using trademarked “traffic lights.” This intuitive visual presentation allows traders to survey the status of any stock with a quick glance.

A unique navigation tool allows easy reviews of stocks within a group/sector.
