  1. Can anyone share a review of the of the pro's and cons of the many screeners out there. I am referring to:


    and others if they fall into this category.

    Many thanks,

    do you want to backtest?
  3. Yes, I would like to backtest, particularly the past 5 years, where we have had so many different market cycles. The screening that I want to do, is more fundamental than technical.

    I have had technical problems with the Reuters free screener over the years but it has what I need. They now have a for pay one that is supposed to have a lot more available.
  5. I have no experience with Validea. But Portfolio123 is better than the other (3) combined. And it's moderately priced.

    I have no connection with Portfolio123 other than a user.

    Good luck.
  6. Anyone have a link, where the different products are compared based on product features, service, capability, price etc?
  7. bump...
  8. never heard of some of these, provide the website....

    qualify WHAT you want to screen or want from a screener....

    do you want daily traiding stocks?
    do you want premarket stocks?
    do you want trending stocks?
    do you want position stocks?
    do you want news stocks?

    IBD ( offers a number of filters...
  9. "qualify WHAT you want to screen or want from a screener...."

    looking for a fundamental data screener that offers backtesting. my main concern with many of these is the ability to duplicate real $$ performance. I am concerned that data is not accurate and survivor bias plays a huge role.
  10. Most static screeners are a dime a dozen in my opinion there TONS and TONS of them

    and this is a small sample. Unless it is updating in real-time it is useless. For the rea-time stuff there are far less options, with the basic ones below.

    Hope that helps
