Stock Scan and Filter




I'm using the ProRealTime account, albeit still in the demo version, but noticed that I can download third party ad on options for my platform. Are these safe/ do they work? 

I am after a stock scanner similar to the TD ameritrade Think or swim stock hacker, where by I can filter stocks for whatever I wish. For example, I can select a 3% change during premarket and volume above 5000 etc. This way, i can filter to the stocks i deem suitable for me. The ProScanner that IG has doesn't seem to do this. Any ideas please of an add on?

Please also make sure you are fully aware of how the individual codes work when downloading from third party sites. 

If you're looking at automatic trading strategies on PRT (or any other offering such as MT4 or API stuff etc), what results will occur from each one, how to stop them, and maybe test on demo accounts first to learn the ins and outs. Due diligence is always key when looking at trading software you download.

Stock scanners (like the ones discussed above) on the other hand are less risky, but still - please make appropriate fact checking measures if you believe it to be appropriate.

some good suggestions here from @TrendFollowerand @Caseynotes

I think you will struggle to get the pre-market data unless you have access to live (not delayed) prices.

The IG Screener will give you the change versus prior five days but not change on y/day close - which is presumably what you are after. I think you will have to look to a few of the sources above from @TrendFollower as I cannot see a volume criteria on IG.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
