How to Use TradeTips

What is TradeTips?

TradeTips™ is an app that makes stock market investing easier for average investors. It helps regular people make money by giving them the best signals (or recommendations) about the direction a stock price will most likely go (we call these “Tips”). It is free to get started with the app, but many users subscribe to a premium account to gain the full benefits of subscription accounts (such as automated stock price predictions based on machine learning, allowing the members to add educational investing services provided by our Mentors), and more.
TradeTips helps average investors make money in the stock market by providing a combination of trading suggestions from experienced investors and our accurate homegrown artificial intelligence (AI), which gives our users an edge in the fast-paced stock market. We believe the best way for regular people to make money in the market is to have a working repeatable strategy that gives them reliable results that are fast, clear, and easy to use. 


(AI) Artificial Intelligence

We use the same investing algorithms that hedge funds and stock market institutions use to forecast the probable moves in stock prices. These are known calculations in finance circles. These indicators include Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), among others. The process of using these algorithms to assess a stock’s potential is called technical analysis.

The app also uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques to automatically pull positive or negative sentiment from many investing-based news services online. Stock prices are often affected by events that are either “good” or “bad” news, which then have an aftereffect on the sentiment of investors who are traditionally driven by greed (to make money) or fear (of losing money). The app will “read” through many more articles more quickly than a human can. TT then will score the news in aggregate to determine if most news that is being published about a stock (and the stock sectors) at any given time is positive or negative. 

The combination of all these automated outputs is grouped in an AI Tip, which is a stock recommendation made by our automated system. A user can search for a stock and the TradeTips AI will automatically produce an AI Tip for that stock. 


(Mentors) Human Intelligence

Today there are a lot of services that only provide guidance from one advisor. Or there is just too much noise and opinion from users (with their own agendas) in some chat rooms and message boards for an average investor to know what to buy or sell. TradeTips takes great care in curating and vetting the trading advisors on the app. The investing coaches on TradeTips (called Mentors) are there to help you make money, yes you, specifically. TradeTips is set up as a subscriber’s club where our Mentors will work with you to make sure you succeed. 

*These two capabilities of human strategy (Mentors) and automated answers (AI Tips) makes TradeTips different from other trading apps and we believe the best companion to use side-by-side any popular trading platform, like Robinhood, E-Trade, or TDAmeritrade.

6. View a Watchlist Stock Graph

We provide a very simple graph for stock prices between for 1-day through 1-year's worth of data.

To view information about a stock on your watchlist, touch the stock you want to view.

To get a five-day prediction, drag the slider. 

  • If you swipe the slider to request a 5-Day Prediction on the default stocks/ETFs (SPY, QQQ, DAI, IWM, AAPL, GOOG, MSFT, JPM), then the 5-Day prediction is free to try.
  • If it is any other stock/EFT then the subscription options appear, because you must be a subscriber to get unlimited predictions. See the Subscription section for more information.

    Here is a quick breakdown of what you will see when you swipe the 5-Day prediction slider.

    1. Once you swipe the prediction slider on the stock graph screen. You will get a message that says we are building your prediction and we will send you an app notification when it is ready for you. As such, you should have notifications turned on for TradeTips in your settings.


    2. It usually takes 3 minutes to 15 minutes depending on the stock to create a 5-day forecast. When you receive the app notification for your stock, click it and it will take you into your requested stock showing you a purple screen with a graph starting from today to 5 days in the future.


    3. There are 3 future prediction models we show you (it is not a single line like looking at past data). We show you a Technical Model, a News Model and a VXX Model. Each measure a different situation that is most likely to occur for the stock over the next days.

      * The Technical Model is your base scenario (it uses historical data and our calculations to determine the trend of the stock over the next 5 days). 

      * The News Model is based on the current sentiment for that stock in financial news sources. We look at over 20 news sources for you, (like the Financial Times, CNBC, Yahoo Finance, Reuters News, etc.) and we use an automated AI reader to give all the news related to your stock a score of: Very Positive, Positive, Neutral, Negative or Very Negative. This means that the news for your stock is either good or not so good, and it may affect the stock price. The News Model shows what the stock price could be if the current news persists.

      * The VXX Model is based on a stock market indicator called the VIX. This indicator is based on the number of investors who are buying or selling stocks in the overall market ... not just your stock. If the VXX is going up ... then the overall stock market prices generally go down. Vice-versa, if the VXX is going down, this is a sign that the overall stock prices are going up. Our VXX Model in the 5-day prediction reads the VXX and shows you what the current trend of the VXX would do to the base Technical Model. 

      This 3 graph lines combination will give you 1. a basic prediction of the stock pattern probability over 5 days, 2. If good or bad news would influence that prediction and by how much, and 3. If the overall market is going in an up or down direction (based on the VXX), how that may push the stock in a direction as well.


7. Delete Stocks from Your Watchlist

To delete a stock from your watchlist: 

  1. Touch and drag the stock you want to delete to the left. The Delete button appears from the right.
  2. Touch the Delete button. The stock is deleted from your watchlist.



 What are Tips?

Tips are otherwise called "stock trading signals", while some investors also call them "trade setups." Essentially, TradeTips is designed to give you recommendations and suggestions of great opportunities to make money in the stock market. The app also gives warnings for you as an investor to be cautious about some stocks.

As stated above, the TradeTips AI will give you a Tip automatically generated for the stock you search and add to your watchlist. Our experienced investing Mentors also produce tips which give you an entry price, and exit price and a stop price to help you exactly make a trade in your favorite trade execution app.

9. To Expand Tips from the Bottom

In order to see all the past tips that have been posted swipe up from the collapsed tips area to the expanded view.


  1. In the expanded view of AI Tip, you will see a BUY, SELL, or AVOID badge. This badge is not a button, it is a flag that helps you know that the TradeTips AI has utilized many technical indicators and determined that the stock/ETF is in a position to Buy or Sell (or be cautious when you see Avoid).

    Avoid just means that if you are in a position of that stock, perhaps you should be cautious and watch the daily price action closely. If you are not holding ay of that stock and you see Avoid, it is a signal to pause and watch the daily price action for a better entry. In either case … we recommend that you watch for the next definitive Buy or Sell signal to make your more active decisions.
