Technical Scanning & Screening Tools
It is vital to utilize technical scanners to save time on the identification process and I prefer to use a lot of reverse engineering, so if I see a great pattern about to play out or one that has already played out I will recreate the criteria into a screening program to be able to identify these set-ups in real-time.
StockFetcher – My preferred site for designing technical filters and returning results in a nice layout, also ability to easily customize and filter. They also have some awesome features like “Find Similar” and Backtesting.
StockCharts – The predefined scans page is a nice free resource for pattern screening and daily technical indicator results.
PastStat – The site has moved to pay-only but has a bevy of technical filters as well as seasonality and back-testing to explore high probability set-ups
