Regardless of how much analysis skills and schemes we know, it does us no good if we can’t find actual stocks to analyze. Learn how to easily find quality stocks to put through your trading strategy.
3 Ways To Finding Stocks
1. Use what you know. Start with companies you know like Microsoft and Starbucks. Through sites like Google Finance, you can check the related companies section to learn about other companies in that industry. Eventually you can broaden out as you add more knowledge under your belt.
2. Use stock screener. A screener allows you to input your selected data and then spits out a list of stocks back at you. A great free screener with emphasis on technical analysis is Finviz. Check the CPM video that details more on how to use their screener.
3. Use stock news sites. On sites like Fool.com, you can see what are the hot sectors and what people are talking about. These sites will give you a good idea of whats out there and what seems to be working right now.
