Charting & technical studies
What do the pros have that you don’t? With thinkorswim, not much. Especially when you have access to feature-rich charts and more technical studies than on any other platform.
See the market in a whole new light. Maybe you’ve heard that before. But Fast Beta really shines. This proprietary TD Ameritrade study, where more recent pricing data has a greater impact than older pricing data, is especially useful when analyzing securities that become more volatile or break out of historical trends.
Finding the perfect technical indicator can be challenging to say the least. With thinkScript, you can manipulate existing charts and studies. Or create your own and even name them after yourself. The power of analytics is in your hands now.
This kind of hacking won’t land you behind bars. But it will help you crack the hacking code to find the securities you want. Scan for stocks and options meeting your criteria, and easily filter out the ones that don’t.
Go long and go short. It’s not a play from a confused quarterback. It’s pairs trading. Buy one position and short a related security in a simultaneous transaction.33Pairs trading requires active monitoring and management and is not suitable for all investors.
Take a position that lasts. One that really, really lasts. With Strategy Roller, you set your covered call strategy up front and have it automatically roll forward for as long as you want—based on your criteria.44Rolling strategies can entail substantial transaction costs, including multiple commissions, which may impact any potential return. You are responsible for all orders entered in your self-directed account.
If you think you know more than the analysts, put your predictions to the test. Use Company Profile to analyze revenue drivers and see the potential impact on returns. Go ahead, show up the pros.55Company Profile (Trefis®) information/estimates provided by Insight Guru Inc., a separate and unaffiliated firm.
