Comtex News Network Inc., a provider of electronic real-time news, content, and SmarTrend market products, has launched SmarTrend 2.0--the new version of its online stock trend alert product. Comtex issues up to 100 new SmarTrend UPTREND and/or DOWNTREND alerts, delivered with related news headlines when available, on more than 4,400 North American stocks included in the Comtex SmarTrend database. The new look and improved functionality of SmarTrend 2.0 includes the addition of a Watch List feature (My SmarTrend); personalized My SmarTrend email alerts on selected stocks; interactive performance charts; and full news stories for all subscribers. Now, for each stock followed, users can sort detailed SmarTrend information by ticker symbol; trend price; trend date; days in trend; last price; percent change; and latest trend direction (i.e., UPTREND or DOWNTREND). These new sorting features can be used for all SmarTrend Alerts and/or for the new, personalized, My SmarTrend Alerts. Current subscribers have immediate access to all new SmarTrend features. SmarTrend is available by monthly or annual subscriptions and a free product trial is available on the website. Institutional investors can also receive SmarTrend directly from a number of professional applications or directly as an XML newsfeed from Comtex.
