    Yeah, I know it's not part of IM and that is why I created this thread in the lounge.

    Anyway, what are some good stock analyzing software for technical analysis and such?
    I'm using etrade's but I have to say the tools are quite limited.
    I would definitely appreciate any BHW traders whom can recommend some good stock analyzing software (preferably free).

    I used to have a candlestick chart analysis app but I can't remember the name of it... and some brief googling reveals that the terms I'm using are too ambiguous to find it. Maybe you can find some relevant software on torrent sites. :)

    If you need software to help you "analyze" stocks then you shouldn't be trading IMO, it's a good way to gamble away your money.

    e-signal is very good but it's not free.

    Hi, take drey2k advice. I did internship for a stockbroker couples years back one thing I learned is you have to know your stuff and no software will really help you I suggest you get some books on analyzing stocks and do it yourself it will take you awhile to get it trust me but you will be glad and the stock market will still be here and people invest in stocks for long-term so I suggest you read and study yourself and do not trust your hard earned money on some software hope this helped.

    I use Trade-Ideas. You can also try http://www.marketwatch.com/tools/stockresearch/screener/. I Believe thats a free one.

    I like TI as its real time. You can set your alerts to work in real-time and then screen them using filters to make sure that you only get alerted on stocks that meet your specific criteria.

    I dont know what type of software OP is looking for But if he is referring to software such as scanners or screeners then your statement is totally wrong. Stock screening and filtering software is essential and used by even the top traders. I would be worried if somebody doesnt do their fundamental analysis before trading. Thats what you call gambling.

    Yes, this is what I am referring to.

    And I already stated: "For technical analysis AND such". So I am NOT gambling and such.
    I am looking for a software that has a variety of technical analysis tools (ADX, MACDs, RSI, .etc) with fundamental analysis factors.
    But thanks for the concern though.
