Stock Screener on TradingView

The trading routine of a successful trader always starts with the research of the best opportunities for the day. Needless to say that the best way to do such research is by using a stock screening engine because a good stock screener can conveniently show only the most promising opportunities that match your custom criteria.

Surely you can find many online tools that can help you in your daily stock market research however, we can guarantee you that, whether you Day Trade or Swing Trade, Stock Screener is the best real-time stock screener you could ever find because it offers unrivalled technical and fundamental screening tools!

Look, here’s a quick glimpse of it!

A clean design and an intuitive interface are two very remarkable features but the most substantial aspect is what’s behind the scenes: it’s powerful engine! It is capable of filtering out in real-time thousands of stocks matching multiple, very specific, criteria both technical and fundamental.

So let’s make some examples to discover all its impressive features.

Technical Screener

Let’s assume that we are looking for a Nyse Stock Screener and a MACD Crossover Screener. Basically, we want a tool that can give us a list of all the Nyse stocks in which the MACD just crossed over.

How can we do that? It’s very simple!

  1. Click on the little funnel icon in the top-right corner
  2. Select “Common Stock” as Symbol Type
  3. Select “NYSE” as Exchange
  4. Go to the “Technical” tab on the top, scroll down until “MACD Level” and then select “Crosses
  5. Select “MACD Signal” as crossover trigger

While you select your desired options, the screener automatically updates the list of results in real-time. As you can see from the image below, our research generated 145 matching results (trading opportunities!) in a matter of seconds.

Fundamental Screener

Now let’s try the fundamental screener!

For the sake of this article let’s try a simple, but quite interesting, fundamental research. Let’s say we want to find all the companies which have a Gross Profit greater than 1B but have less than 100 employees.

Similarly to what we’ve done before, you can perform the screen in a few easy steps:

  1. Click on the little funnel icon in the top-right corner
  2. Select the “Fundamental” tab
  3. Scroll down to “Number of Employees” and move the slider
  4. Scroll down to “Gross Profit (FY)” and move the slider

Within a matter of seconds and with two simple parameters, we reduced our research from thousands of stocks to a list of four stocks which we can further analyse.

How?

Not only we can go straight to the chart by clicking on a stock’s symbol but we also have precious information beautifully displayed in the table’s columns. And the good news is that you can customise such information to match your needs. You just have to click on the three vertical dots at the far right of the titles’ row and a new menu will pop-up with the option to add/remove columns depending on your own specific requirements.

Technical Screener and Fundamental Screener TOGETHER

Not only the Stock Screener has a powerful technical and fundamentals engine but you can also combine them both together in order to bring your research to the next level.

Let’s now search for Stocks at 1-Month High and with Revenue per Employee above 1M.

You should now be familiar with the tool. The detailed steps are:

  1. Click on the little funnel icon in the top-right corner
  2. Select “Common Stock” as Symbol Type
  3. Select the “Technical” tab
  4. Scroll down to “New 1-Month High” and select it
  5. Select the “Fundamental” tab
  6. Scroll down to “Revenue per Employee (TTM)” and move the slider

Even more features

We’ve seen that the Stock Screener included in TradingView not only is free, quick and very intuitive to use but also its engine is capable of screening among thousands of stocks with the most disparate parameters and combine them all together, be them technical or fundamental.

Is this all?

Not yet! Because the screener offers much more features that you can use in order to exploit it even further.

Alerts

Not only in TradingView you can set Alerts for Indicators but also for every standard or custom screen that you perform, you then have the option to set an alert in order to be notified as soon as a new symbol matches your criteria.

For example, you are able to say “Alert me every time a new stock has Unusual Volume”. You can then define what type of notification you’d like to get between a visual popup, an audio signal, an email alert and an email-to-SMS alert. And if you have a TradingView Premium Subscription you can additionally get a real-time server-side text message (SMS) alert, delivered directly to your phone!
