Uptrends Release Notes

March 2024


  • Event Highlights on Price Charts — one of our favorite editions this year; whenever a major news event or alert affects the price of a stock, it gets tagged on the stocks price chart and categorized by event type. Added a right-hand panel to show AI-generated summaries of the events as you scroll.
  • Dedicated Alerts Feed — added a dedicated feed page that shows recently-triggered news alerts globally. The feed enables filtering by alert type (lawsuit, news surge, earnings, M&A, etc.) and date-range, and sorts by most-recent, most-mentioned, or even 'most unusual'.
  • Dedicated Trending Topics Feed — after we made the dedicated alerts feed, we thought 'hmmm... we should have a dedicated page for trending topics too', so we built it. This is a basic feed of recent AI-clustered topics detected throughout stock market news. Ths can also be filtered and sorted like the alerts feed.
  • Revised Pricing Model — after adding some major features to our Pro subscription tier, and discovering that some Pro users have abused the unlimited news alerts afforded by the Pro tier, we decided it was time to increase the price from $24.99/mo to $49.99/mo. We're also experimenting with a reverse trial approach to our LImited tier (vs. the traditional free trial)
  • Mobile Facelift — Added some much-needed formatting improvements to our mobile pages. Now price charts format nicely, tables afford more scrollability, and text sizing in a few spots has been improved to generally look better. Right now roughly 35% of site usage is on mobile devices.

February 2024


  • 1-Day Time Horizon — added 1-day range for stock price and news sentiment data on the Trending page to make it easier for our short-term trader friends to see what's going ON! The price data was the easy part... having enough news coverage to reliably calculate sentiment for most stocks on a 24-hour window was trickier.
  • Reintroduced the Ticker Tape — brought back the beloved scrolling 'ticker tape' at the top of the Trending page by popular demand. This was an early feature we removed to make the site load more efficiently, but now that we've learned a thing or two (found some new libraries) we restored it to its original glory!
  • International Stocks — one of our most common requests by FAR... 'how can I see data for stocks outside the US?'. Seeing that more than 50% of our users are based outside the US we decided we had to make it happen. Still working on ever-expanding our coverage of stocks and news, international stocks at least show up in search now, whether or not we have news coverage for them.
  • Interest Group Pages — added pages for broader 'interest groups' of stocks. Users can set alerts to be notified about events affecting constituent stocks within larger 'groups' (ie. Tech stocks, Large caps, Health care, Meme stocks, etc.) so we figured we should have a dedicated page that shows the actual constituents of each group.
  • Affiliate Program — an last but not least, a fun one: we introduced the Uptrends affiliate program! Now you can get rewarded for sharing Uptrends with your friends, followers, and mothers-in-law. You get a 30% commission for each person that signs up for a paid account with your referral code, they get a 20% discount of their subscription; a win-win!
  • Fixed Some Bugsss 🐛 bonus: fixed a few bugs, including a pesky one that was preventing some users from updating their alerts watchlist.

  • Trending Stocks Leaderboard — we redesigned the trending stocks table to be more useful and more customizable.

Now easily turn on alerts for news surges, sentiment spikes, price changes, trending topics, earnings, analyst ratings, executive activity, whale activity, mergers & acquisitions, lawsuits, FDA approval, and bankruptcy rumors
  • AI Alert & Topic Summaries — we added AI-generated summaries to topics and alerts to take the guesswork out of discerning over-arching opinion about major stock events. AI summaries parse hundreds of articles pertaining to any alert or topic, weighing the positive/negative outlooks, and synthesizing actionable summaries to give you a better consensus takeaway.

  • View news events by day on stock charts — now you can double click into any day on any given stock chart to see the snippets and events that effected the stock's price.
  • Set news alerts from anywhere — we made it A LOT easier to set alerts and be notified about market-moving news for any stock. From any page, just hover over the name of any ticker, and a bell icon will appear. Click the bell to set an alert, and you'll be notified on-platform whenever there's a news event for that stock
