One of the best stock screening tools
Fewer features offered than the StockFetcher Advanced versions; however, this is still one of the best sites / apps used to screen the markets for great stocks. In addition to their web interface, you can also download a separate app. It's so easy and quick to write a script to screen the entire market for your specific criteria. The speed of the website is also impressive, considering how many stocks it has to screen. If you aren't an expert coder, don't worry. The programming language on this site if so easy to learn. If you get stuck there are so many helpful members in the forum. I usually use this site as a quick screening tool and then export (copy-paste) the stocks to Excel or Trade Ideas for further analysis and/or alerts.
The only complaint I have is that they really have not added too many new features, script capabilities in a few years. Instead they have focused their attention on the stand-alone app, which some of us still don't use. Their programming language has so much potential, but they have ignored improving it. For example, instead of supplying us with convenient "if / then / and / or" statements, we have to write out complicated binary translations (count the number of times an event A has occurred in the last 1 day times count the number of times an event B has occured in 1 day and display all stocks = 1 (A * B)). Additionally, I wish they would allow us to screen the markets in real-time; at this point it's 20 minutes delayed. I ended up using Trade Ideas for my real-time screening and Stockfetcher for after-hours. The site developers really need to listen to their customers' suggestions.
My ratings for "Education and Entertainment" come from other members of the site / forum, not the website itself.
