TradingView, the online charting tools developer and social trading platform said it has added a new tool – the Stock Screener. It allows users to filter stocks by their own preferences and metric they specify themselves.
For example, if users are looking for the cheapest companies that make the highers profit, they can use the filter for Lowest P/E ratio and the Stock Screener will rank the companies. The firms can be sorted by criteria such as volume leaders, most oversold, top gainers, top losers, all time high, all time low, most volatile, etc. The charts also contain company overview, performance, valuation, dividends, margins, income statement, balance sheet and oscillators.
Users can either use the pre-built sets of filters or create their own and save them for future reference. They can also add new columns, change their order and save their custom look with the “Save Columns As” button, add favorites and create shortcuts.
User interface also has the following features:
1. Table with filtered results
2. Refresh button
3. Column setup
4. Configuration menu
5. Quick access to preset filters
7. Filter menu
The Stock Screener can either be used from within the cart or in a separate browser window. For now it is still in beta testing mode and users can report issues and bugs they can come across.
