Broker With Good Software

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me a good broker for trading mostly stocks? I'd like a broker that has free software and free EOD data. I'm really wanting some software that has good search features to find stocks that meet my criteria I don't intend to trade more than a few trades a year.

Could you elaborate more on your use of such information? Sounds like you'll be a position trader or trend follower.

 

I tried several brokers and Interactive Brokers has been the best for me by far. I think its scan feature is pretty good and it can interface with third party software--even MS Excel! Data feed is really good too.

 

You can also get free EOD data from Kinetick but I'm not sure if that's only exclusive for Ninjatrader 7 users.

 

If you elaborate I could probably help you out more or perhaps hopefully someone already knows a broker that gives you all that.

Right now I am using Worden TC2000 for stock scanning and it's everything I need in that regard. The problem is it isn't free. I use it to quickly flip through stock charts within certain sectors. So if I identify a sector which I believe is poised to move, I can easily pull up a list of stocks within that sector (usually by loading the index with all stocks that make up that index) and quickly flip through them to find patterns. This quickly flipping through groups of stocks is the most important for me by far.

 

I also like to use it to search for things like high dividends etc.

 

For charting, I like NinjaTrader. I don't have a need to change this but if the package had good scanning capabilities plus user friendly charting like NT, that would be even better.

 

Thanks!

Hmm I'm not sure you'll find a broker that can match all third party features and roll it all into one--I guess that's why there are third parties.

 

I think a great broker coupled with free services will work.

 

Have you tried Finviz screener that's free? I used to use it. The scans are not as comprehensive but maybe because it's free but at least it you can setup your parameters then go to the charts tab after you get the results and you'll see all the charts for each individual stocks that meet the criteria.

 

Check it out and let me know. It'd be interesting if someone does know a broker that has all in one package.

    • I am willing to share the subscription cost. Let me know if you are interested 
    • My guess is that the COT numbers are based on Tuesday figures. So a weekly chart wouldn't distinguish between the different numbers on Monday and Tuesday.
    • 4 months in and Marketsmith has done really NOTHING for me......still waiting for that stock that will make the year worth it and pay for the $1500 dollar price tag......the paper has become virtually useless......especially since I used it for Political mostly political reference with Issues and Insights.......the rest of the paper is mostly geared to Stock advisers.....not the regular guy........way to boring saying nothing but how to treat guys like me.........this could be my last year.
    • Date : 22nd July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2019.No deal Brexit risks will continue to unsettle markets next week as the two candidates hardened their rhetoric in end stages of the party elections. The ECB however will stand out as the event of the week,with Brexit uncertainty an important part of the overall outlook. Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication. Tuesday – 23 July 2019   The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister next Tuesday. Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected. Wednesday – 24 July 2019   Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively. Thursday – 25 July 2019   German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier. Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month. On balance, markets see more merit in keeping official rates unchanged next week, while moving to an official easing bias and promising that rates will be at “current or lower” levels well into next year. ECB Monetary Policy Statement (EUR, GMT 12:30) -The July meeting will clearly be a “live” one with doves and hawks battling it out over when to deliver the now widely expected easing measures. It is expected that the majority will see more merit in keeping policy settings unchanged, but change the guidance to introduce a clear easing bias. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.0% in June, after a -1.3% figure in May. Transportation orders should rise 2.7%. Boeing orders rose to only 9 from just zero in May, with weakness due to the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments. Vehicle assemblies should ease to 11.1 mln from an 11.3 mln pace in May. Durable shipments are expected to rise 0.5%, and inventories should rise 0.6%. The I/S ratio is expected to hold steady at 1.67 since April. Friday – 26 July 2019   Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow 1.8% in Q2, with a sturdy 2.4% growth rate for final sales thanks to solid growth rates of 3.9% for personal consumption and 4.3% for government purchases, alongside a big $27 bln unwind of the Q1 inventory pop.
