What is a stock screener?

A stock screener is a tool that allows an investor or trader to search and filter stocks that are according to the investor's criteria. There are two types of stock screeners, one based on the fundamental data called the fundamental stock screener, and the other based on technical data, called the technical stock screener which is the focus of this website.

A fundamental stock screener is used by long-term investors who are looking to buy stocks based on a company's fundamental information, such as the income statement, balance sheets, and cash flow statements. With a fundamental stock screener, an investor can quickly find stocks that are undervalued based on the P/E ratio, or growth companies based on the EPS growth rate.

What is a technical stock screener?

A technical stock screener is used by short term traders who are looking to trade stocks based on price actions. There are many technical indicators developed by traders to try to predict the short-term price moment of a stock. A technical stock screener helps traders find stocks to trade based on these technical indicators.

Technical traders don't care how well a company is doing in the future, what they care about is that they can buy a stock at a lower price, and turn around to sell the stock at a higher price within a few weeks, days, or even hours. This may sound easy, but it is difficult for most people. With the help of technical indicators and stock chart reading skills, traders improve the odds of making money in the stock market.

Some technical indicators work better than others depending on the market. However, keep in mind, that there is no magic indicator that will work every time, or else no one will be working for a living. Let's just say trading is more of an art than science.

How to use our technical stock screener?

To use our technical stock screener, one must already be familiar with the different types of technical indicators and stock chart patterns.

Final Words

If you are approaching the market with a mathematical and logical mind, you may have a hard time succeeding in trading. Trading for a living doesn't require a high IQ or a degree from an Ivy League school, but it requires a different set of skills.

Most people think there is a secret methodology in trading but in reality, a winning trading method is only 15% of trading success. The other 85% is trading psychology which is a skill most traders lack.

Trading psychology is hard to teach, as most people won't get it without trading with their own money. You may read a few trading psychology books, but it hardly helps without trading experience.

It is hard to explain to beginners how to cut losses small and let profits run. At least when I first started trading, I never get it until I learned it the hard way.

The only way for beginners to learn about trading psychology is to trade in small positions for a few months, and understand how their emotions influence their trading decisions. They will learn by experience how greed and fear have major impacts on their trading strategies. By then, they can start reading a few books on trading psychology, and will learn why psychology is critical to trading success.
