Default Free Stock Charts

I really like Free Stock Charts.com. You have to install the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in and it can seem a bit resource hungry if you are on an older machine, but other than that, I think it's a great tool. Lots of options, you can tweak your MA's, you get VWAP, MACD, etc. You can view your charts over multiple time frames, and a bunch of other stuff I'm too much of a noob to understand.

I use StockCharts.com - Simply the Web's Best Financial Charts for technical analysis.
It is free, easy to read and shows important points on the chart.


Johnny78, FreeStockCharts looks good too, thanks

Default StockCharts.com

Kalibus,

I use Free Stock Charts.com because it's real-time (and it's free).

Once I learn a little TA, I should probably check out Stock Charts.com. Knowing as little as I do, I wouldn't have a very nuanced understanding of either service.

Free Stock Charts.com has a lot of drawing tools as well, but no guidance really.

Hi Johnny78.

I am nowhere close to a master of TA either, but I believe if you can combine your research with TA, you will lift your stock trading to another level. I am still working on it...

Does anybody have any good stock screeners that they use? Thats what im really in need for. I'd really like one that would screen for stocks with particular moving average crossovers.

That's actually what I'm using right now, and it's pretty good, but actually this one was the one I was looking for. It's a bit more technical than the other one.

Ahha! nice site, I have one more tool to find great stocks!
Are you finding great stocks with those stock screeners? I know the stocks above MA 200 are strong stocks, but I think a lot of the Nasdaq and biotech stocks are above MA 200, so what other stats do you use to pick out the better ones?

Thanks

I'm actually a swing trader as a hobby, so basically I look for stocks that are in between supports and resistance trend lines. I usually sort by volume, that way I'm only playing with high volume stocks. I hate low volume ones, too unpredictable. I will buy if I can confirm that they hit the support and then rebound. I also used simple moving avg. crossovers, 9 day and 4 day. Sometimes i use MACD. I have yet to use stochastics but I will hopefully soon. And just recently I've been learning how to use some of the tools on freestockcharts, I'm really into the fibinacci tools right now, they can be cool.
