Who Provides The Best Stock Scanner + Charting
Looking to pick up a Scanning / Charting Platform Subscription. I know they are very expensive, so I want to go to one that's the best, so once I master it, I don't have to move to a new platform and have to learn it all over again. I think Think Or Swim has it embeded in their platform Software. Saw some reviews, looked nice and solid. Also I know VectorVest7 has a nice scanner, as well. Who are you guys using? Does it pay the $120/month subscription?

hey bud! vectorvest is no good! trust me they have been scamming people for years. thinkorswim has just as a good one and its free. If you want a cheap end of day scanner charter i have a sub to telechart by worden its 30 bucks. its 79.99 for the realtime scanner/charter/sorter. esignal is very very nice also but thats the lamborgini of things its like 150 bucks. too pricey for me!Kunal Desai

So if you have your money in your Broker say E-Trade or Scottrade etc... If you get the eSignal, can you make trades within the eSignal, or do you have to execute your orders inside your own broker's platform?

I think TOS is ultimately what's going to be my next broker.

yeah with esginal it can connect to multiple types of brokers. and u can trade and chart from there.
tos is a bit pricey but if u put the ehat on them ask them for 5.00 flat trades. they will give it toyou if you tell the specials other brokers have they will matchKunal Desai

Esignal on demand isnt 100+ a month..more like 30 something, but if you need streaming charts then it's expensive.
finviz is a free scanner to check out .Life ends when you stop dreaming...hope is lost when you stop believing...and love fails when you stop caring.

I've been using FinViz for a year, and never though that was free. I thought that was premium content. I also joined Think or Swim today, so that also has a scanner. What seem to work best for you gentleman as far as criteria when setting up your scans. If you were to narrow a few key points as far as most important to lease what would you suggest. This is for a $20K cash account. I like to stay under $5 on these trades, so my number of shares are higher. I used to trade Select, and it's just so expensive, and the low amount of share holdings makes for some stupid decisions, and a loss.
Volume? Price? Market Cap? Earnings? % Gains ??
P.S. I plaid around with the Finviz one yesterday, and today I plaid with the Think or Swim one. That Think or Swim software is no joke. Little intimidated by it to be honest.

i have etrade and freestockcharts.com
I use FSC for all my research, and etrade just for the broker aspect.
sometimes I'll use the sorter on etrade, but I don't really know what to look for since I am mostly day trading
