TradeTips  - Getting Started


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) The 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.

  1. In this expanded view of an 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.


  1. The Tip also shows, the stock symbol, company name, the current stock price, and the change in price from yesterday’s close price.
