The Bullish Bears offers our community members stock signals, scanners, and Discord bots. The advanced tools that the Bullish Bears offers should only be used if you know what you are doing as a trader. They can be helpful tools to advance your trading efforts, but only if you know what you are doing. No scanners, trade alerts, or Discord bots will make you a successful trader. Every trade that you make is ultimately your responsibility. Trading alerts can be helpful to traders but can cause more harm than good in the wrong hands. We will break down the positives and negatives of how they work.

Before we begin, please read our disclaimer before following any signals, trades, and anything we talk about in our community. It’s important to realize that trading is risky and nothing is foolproof. Our team loses on trades just like everyone else. Please use any of our signals as a teaching guide to learn to trade, and always do it in a paper account before trading with real money.

We can’t stress enough the importance of never blindly following any person’s trades and trade alert signals if you don’t know how to trade. Mirror trading is one of the worst things new traders do and should be avoided at all costs. If it sounds like we are trying to scare you, we are. We care about the well-being of our community members.

How Traditional Stock Signals and Trade Alerts Work

Stock signals are key areas traders watch for potential rejection or a possible continuation or breakout. The nature of stocks is very dynamic and psychological. As a result, you need to be on your toes; and think fast. Traders and algorithmic computers are always looking at support and resistance levels, and intraday price fluctuations will often happen near these zones. 

A balanced trading portfolio is key because the market isn’t black and white. Some sectors do better, while others do worse in any given week, and then they rotate. Stocks and ETFs like $SQ, $AMD, $MCD, $GLD, $TLT, $CGC, $SPY, $V, and many others are popular with options alerts. Never oversize into any trade, and remember the 2% of your account rule. Grow slow!


We want to dispel many misconceptions about trade alert services right up front. What we’re about to tell you might come as a surprise since this isn’t discussed much in the industry. Not to mention, it’s a hidden secret that’s geared towards getting new traders’ money. All without a clue how detrimental it is to their trading success. It’s quite shocking, and it took us a while to figure it out.

Then, one day we woke up and asked ourselves what we were doing. Also, we were there, too, quite a few times. Next, we will get into why you don’t want to rely on other traders to call out trade alerts to you.

When trading stocks, you become a sheep that relies on the shepherd to control you when you wait for another trading company to call out trades. As a result, you aren’t in control, which is the biggest problem because you must always be in control of every trading decision you make!

The best traders in the world still make bad trades between 35-40% of the time. No one typically wants to admit this, but it’s the truth. Don’t rely on anyone to make trading decisions for you. Traditional trade alerts are something that you don’t want as a trader. Not in the conventional sense of the word. 


You don’t know when other trading companies will call out their stock alerts. You’re stuck there waiting, the trade finally gets called out, and right after, the herd rushes in! You’re a sheep in this situation waiting on your shepherd. It now becomes a mad scramble by these trade alert followers running into the same trade. At the same time! The race is on. Everyone is rushing for the same door. This causes quite a spike in volume and price.

Meanwhile, the company or guru already has a filled position before they call out a trade. They’re relaxed and ready to go while their followers rush in. This is why their day trading alerts look good at times. Have you seen these “gurus” pumping all over Twitter or StockTwits? There are also big-name “talking heads” on major television networks pumping large-cap stocks getting new investors to buy at resistance levels. Why do these people never show their follower’s support and resistance levels?

Mass Exodus

After their herd follows them into the trade, it brings more volume into the stock, which then hits the stock scanners like Trade Ideas. Thus bringing in other traders, which potentially causes the stock to rise further. Next, when you might least expect it, the company or guru sells their position, and afterward, they call it out to its followers, and the mass exodus begins.

Just like everyone rushed to enter the door, they were all heading for the exit simultaneously. Not good! Thus, the moment a specific day trading alert service calls out their sell orders to their herd; it becomes a panic attack. And it creates a mass exodus of people exiting their positions, trying to get their best fill while hoping to at least be in the green and not lose money. There are no guarantees that you will make money with a daily trade alert service or trading in general. If the best traders in the world fail with 35-40% of the trades they make, how does that affect you?

Especially when you have a herd of people chasing after the same trade as you. As a result, the extra buying and selling volume becomes a huge problem with alert services. Think about it.

Different Types of Stock Market Signals​

Let’s dig in a little about why you don’t want traditional types of stock trade alert services, even if they are free. We’re talking about the prototypical kind of day trade alert service that you pay for, and you rely on the trading company or guru to call out trades to you in their day trade room. Trading rooms and trading alert services like these cost $150+ per month. We’ve seen some really high price tags for services for day trading and penny stock alerts.

As a general rule, a “typical” paid daily trade alert subscription is a huge waste of money and detrimental to your success as a trader! Just think about it for a moment, you’re waiting on a company or guru to call out trades to you by text, email, or in their chat rooms. For starters, you’re relying on their technical or fundamental analysis. Not your own.

Stock Signals

Penny Stock Signals

You could blow up your brokerage account if you rely completely on another trading service to call out any stock market buy and sell signals. Low-float penny stocks are extremely volatile, and if you rely solely on another guru or company to call out these trades, you could get burnt.

Traditional penny stock signals tell you when another trading guru enters and sells a penny stock. While this may sound enticing, this is a perfect way to blow up your brokerage account. This process is called mirror trading and is very dangerous because penny stocks are notorious for pumping and dumping. 

If you are following a guru into a penny stock trade, you will always be late to the trade. The guru will always enter into their trade before they call out their penny stock signal to their followers. They will also sell before calling out their exits as well. Do you see why this is a dangerous way to trade?

Options Signals

Options are a great way to leverage your account to trade large-cap stocks without putting out a lot of money. They can be just as volatile and risky or more as penny stocks. They are more difficult to “pump” than penny stocks, but they are still risky. Calls and puts give you the best reward potential but are also the riskiest. Debit and credit spreads have less reward potential but help limit your risk. 

Frequently Asked Questions

A stock signal is an alert that lets you know when a security is breaking a major support or resistance level. It alerts you on when to enter or exit a position. Stock signals can be with penny stocks, options, forex, or futures. If you're a new trader, you should not rely solely on stock alerts because they are risky.

  • There are several different types of stock market signals. Real-time options signals typically focus on large caps stocks or ETFs in the most popular sectors. Depending on the setup, they could be a combination of short-term or longer-term plays. Shares could be traded instead if you’d prefer. Usually, companies offer either text alerts or push notifications. Penny stock alerts are also popular but risky due to this sector's volatility.

  • Search for stocks holding highs, their highs, and support levels
  • Look at the larger chart timeframes for breakouts or continuation patterns
  • Check 1 hr charts for near-term price movement
  • Next, map out support and resistance levels on the charts
  • Create stock signals for breaks of the previous close
  • In the premarket, look if stocks are breaking the signal levels

  • Consider taking a trade if there's the right setup

A stock signal is an alert that lets you know when a security is breaking a major support or resistance level. It alerts you on when to enter or exit a position. Stock signals can be with penny stocks, options, forex, or futures. If you're a new trader, you should not rely solely on stock alerts because they are risky.

  1. Upload watch lists and stock signals into your broker account
  2. Create alert signals based on key levels that you're watching to break
  3. Look at the charts and find the major support and resistance levels
  4. Watch for tickers breaking their highs
  5. Wait for your alert to trigger
  6. Look at the charts and see if support holds
  7. If you have confirmation and the setup is there, then consider taking a trade
  8. Have your exit plan in place on when you are going to close your trade
  9. Cut your losses quickly if your trade goes against you
  10. Paper trade before trading with real money

Stock signals are worth it if you know how to trade. They are helpful guides if you're looking for trade ideas, but they aren't meant to be your sole trading strategy due to the associated risks.

Stock alerts map out key support and resistance levels of a stock. When a key alert level triggers, this signifies the potential to enter into a new pon or exit a current one. They can be helpful guides once you know how to trade.

  1. Look up the stock symbol or ticker in your broker
  2. Enable text or email notifications in your account settings
  3. Map out support and resistance levels on your charts
  4. Set a bullish or bearish price target level 
  5. Add any notes if you'd like, then create the alert

Seeking Alpha, Bloomberg, Benzinga, and The Motley Fool are a few of the most popular stock alert services. If you are searching for other services, look for companies that offer real-time alerts on highly liquid, large-cap companies. Focus on trading credit spreads and debit spreads and call and put options if the setups are right. Push notifications are also more reliable than text alert services. 

Trade alerts are notifications of when a security breaks above or below important support and resistance levels. The price alert is sent by push notification or text letting you know when to potentially enter or exit a position.

  • Log in to your brokerage account
  • Type in the stock symbol
  • Go to the price or alert level section
  • Type in your notes
  • Create your alert
  • Make sure notifications are on via text or email
