End of day software with screener for stocks/etf's

Discussion in 'ETFs' started by brownsfan019, May 16, 2007.

  1. Can anyone recommend a good software package for stocks/etf's that have built in screeners for end of day data? In particular I am looking for a screener for candle patterns.

    By day I am trading futures full-time, but for retirement accounts and other money, I mainly look at stocks/etf's. It would make that job easier if I had a screener that can go out and find candle patterns for me and bring them back.

    I just need EOD since these are mainly longer term plays. I'm not particular if the software is web based or installed on the computer, just the screener is important.

    I currently use MultiCharts for my futures trading. Not sure if it's best to stick with that and find a data provider for EOD stock data or not.

    Thanks for any suggestions!
  2. i think stockcharts.com has a screener on candlepatterns.

    Not the best actually, but worth looking into.

    http://www.stockfetcher.com/ is what I use and you can't beat the price and the ease of use. Should have everything you can possible want and a very helpful community forum to help you out if need.

    Stockfetcher can do almost anything Eod. If you can describe your candle pattern, it almost certainly can be coded.

    Whats really cool is they have a pictorial template of 2 day set up where you can tweak whatever candle formation you're looking for.

    And if you need 3, 4 whatever number of days, thats possible too but you'll have to write it.

    Look on their webpage bottom right side. You can test out to see if it can do what you need for free. But it will search for the pattern 10 days ago I think is what the delay is.

    Stockfetcher is one of the most powerful scanners Ive ever seen. I would pay serious $ if it was real time.

    Good luck.

  6. Hey guys, thank you very much!!!

    Simple and easy is what I am looking for, so thank you.

    Any other suggestions are welcomed as well!
  7. Question for those using stockfetcher - is there a way to just say find me 'uptrending stocks' or 'downtrending stocks'?

    The exact way I use candles is not necessarily by the book, so the candle filters aren't going to be that useful. But if I can tell the software find me stocks/etf's where the SMA is pointing up or some other way to define a trending stock, that could work.

    Stockfetcher does look very impressive for the low cost though. There's a lot of possibilities here!

    Brownsfan, yes you can do that.

    How about this?


    stocks are etf
    average volume(30)above 500000
    close between 1 and 100
    ma(5)crossed above ma(10) is -1

    draw ma(5)
    draw ma(10)

    Only etf stocks with 30 day vol above 500k close between 1 and 100 and 5 period sma crossed above 10 period sma TODAY.

    The day is not over yet but got 2 etf returned so far. Might not end the day this way but you get the picture.

  9. aok - I appreciate the help. The best bet is for me to just toy around with it to find the best filter for what I am looking for.

    Thanks again.
