these stock screeners are the most powerful way to find the stocks you are interested in.

a listing of great blogs that add value for investors.

So lets get started with our top 30 services for 2018.

TradingView for traders and investors seeking powerful charting, global data, social networking, and great fundamental screeners.

TC2000 for U.S. and Canadian investors wanting to trade direct from powerful charts and have the best real-time fundamental screening.

MetaStock & Refinitiv Xenith traders looking for super powerful trading systems, backtesting, forecasting, and the best real-time news service from Reuters.

Optuma for professional institutional traders wanting the best technical analysis suite possible.

Recommended for Long-Term U.S.A. & International Investors who value a great price, insanely good Fundamental & Technical Analysis with great streaming news engines and the best ease of use.

There is no doubt about it, TradingView is simply the best all-round stock market, forex and cryptocurrency analysis package available.  With fully integrated social networking, global data from nearly every market in the world and at a great price.  I now use TradingView every day.

You can haveTradingView for free, it is also a review winner for ourBest Free Charting Software Review.

However, to unleash the true potential I would recommend going for the PRO+ service at $19.95 per month or the Premium at $39.95 per month, the benefits are extensive including Priority Customer Support and unlimited everything.

TradingView runs on PC, Mac, Tablets, and Smartphones and requires zero installation, it simply works using advanced HTML 5 across all platforms.

The exchange data is huge, covering nearly all Stock Markets and it includes ETFs, Futures, Foreign Exchange, Cryptocurrencies & Bonds, all at no extra price, which means outstanding value for money.

With TradingView you get broker integration so you can place trades on charts and it will take care of profit & loss reporting and analysis for you.  the only thing it does not cover is Stock Options Trading.

Another huge plus forTradingViewis they hit the mark on fundamental and technical screening and filtering, with powerfully customizable watchlists.  The list of fundamentals you can scan & filter on is truly huge.  Any idea you have based on fundamentals will be covered.  They even have insane amounts of economic data like Federal Funds Rates and World Economic Growth, thanks to a connection to the QUANDL database.

TradingViewhas a very slick system and they have put a huge amount of thought into how fundamentals integrate into the analytics system.

What makes it stand out is the huge selection of economic indicators you can map and compare on a chart. For example, you can compare the civilian unemployment rate versus the growth in a companys profits for the U.S.A.  This is incredibly powerful.

TradingView is built with social collaboration at the forefront.  Fully integrated chat systems, chat forums and an excellent way to share your drawings ideas and analysis with a single click to any group or forum.

This makes for an excellent way to generate ideas or learn from other traders.  You have to try it and see it in action to understand the power of the implementation.

As soon as you connect to TradingView you realize this is also developed for the community.  You can look at community ideas, build your reputation and gain followers.You can even follow me on Tradingview.

With over 160 different indicators, and unique specialty charts such as LineBreak, Kagi, Heikin Ashi, Point & Figure and Renko, you have everything you will need as an advanced trader.

TradingView have over 160 different indicators, covering everything you could possibly need.  When it comes to drawing tools for trendlines, text and on chart analysis TradingView has the best selection in the industry with over 100 different options.

Also, the user community has developed a huge range of customer and shareable indicators, take a look below at the Moon Phase indicator.  With this selection of charting tools, you have everything you will need as an advanced trader.  Plus, with the Premium membership, you also get Level II insight, fully integrated.  Well done TradingView.

Best for U.S. and Canadian investors wanting to trade directly from powerful charts and have the best real-time fundamental stock screening.

Telechart has long been one of my favorite tools,I have been aTelechart Platinumsubscriber for over 18 yearsand find the latest release v18 to continue following a successful path.  Endlessly customizable and scalable the platform offers nearly everything an investor will need.

Telechartis a big hitter when it comes to software and pricing.  Telechart runs on everything your iPhone your Tablet, your Mac, and your PC.  It is priced very reasonably with a simple pricing structure starting at a very low $9.99 per month.

If you trade U.S. Stocks, ETFs or Mutual Funds, then this is a great solution if you want to trade markets outside north America, then you will be better off selectingTradingView.  Worden also provides regular live training seminars which are of a very high quality.

Worden recently releasedTC2000Brokerage offering discount brokerageservices at $4.95 per trade.  This means a tight integration for trading stocks from the screen but also one of the best implementations of stock options trading available.  The advanced options ladders, strategies and visualizations are fantastic.  Read thefull TC2000 reviewto find out more.

Make no mistake about it, if you want fundamentals screened in real-time layered with technical screens all integrated into live watch lists connected to your charts TC2000 is a power player.  Within a few clicks you can create your own custom fundamental indicators which even appear on the charts, it is a powerful yet simple to use system.

Telechart has an excellent array of technical indicators and drawing tools, all the big ones are there, from OBV, RSI and Bollinger Bands to Fibonacci Fans and Andrews Pitchfork.  With over 70 different indicators you will have plenty to play with.  They have also introduced live alerts which you can configure to email or pop up if an indicators or trend line is breached.  You have the ability to create custom technical indicators and condition and even add alerts to those also.  Very useful indeed.

The fact that TC2000 is one of the easiest to use and most powerful packages available places the icing on the cake for Worden Brothers Inc.

Best for traders looking for super powerful trading systems, backtesting, forecasting, and the best real-time news service from Reuters. Add to this global data coverage and excellent customer service.

The latest release ofMetastock XVIhas been a big hit with improvements to the explorer functionality, including improvements in scanning, back testing and forecasting making this the best product on the market for powerful technical analysis of stocks.

MetaStock is one of the biggest fish in the sea of stock market analysis software.  Backed up by the mighty Thomson Reuters you can expect excellent fast global data coverage and broad market coverage including equities, futures, Forex, ETFs and options.

Prices start at $22 per month for MetaStock XVI with Datalink which is perfect for all the systems testing and forecasting requiring end of day data only. If you want intraday real-time data you will need to opt for MetaStock R/T with Reuters Real-Time Data costing $99 per month.  For the ultimate solution, I would recommend MetaStock R/T Subscription with Refinitiv XENITH. $199 per month which gives you real-time institutional grade news and data and unlocks everything.

MetaStockby itself does provide broker integration but the execution of trades from charts and live integrated P&L analysis is limited.  You should investigate Refinitiv XENITH for this functionality.

Using Refinitiv XENITH you can see a really in-depth analysis of company fundamentals from debt structure to top 10 investors, including level II.  Excellent watch lists featuring fundamentals and powerful scanning of the markets gets a perfect 10.

MetaStock XVI has full Refinitiv XENITH integration with institutional level news, analysis, and outlook.  This is the fastest global news service available on the market including translations into all major languages.

Forex forecasting based on sentiment is a feature that is absolutely exceptional.  Never mind the broadest selection of technical analysis indicators on the market today. MetaStock is the king of technical analysis warranting a perfect 10 rating in ourstock market software comparison for 2018

Another area whereMetaStockexcels is what they call the expert advisors.  MetaStock harnesses a huge amount of inbuilt systems that will help you as a beginner or intermediate trader understand and profit from technical analysis patterns and well-researched systems.  This is really a key area of advantage.  The biggest addition to the MetaStock arsenal is the forecasting functionality which sets is apart from the crowd.

MetaStockstill has the feel of a collection of separately developed applications that require users education to make them work together.  However, with the huge selection of automated expert advisors you can deploy on the selection of stocks in your purview make MetaStock well worth the investment.

Recommended for professional frequent trading investors, who value a slick touch-enabled interface which operates well with Bloomberg feeds and terminals, premium features and the best Gann Analysis toolset on the market.

Optuma has been in the market for almost 20 years and they cater to individual investors as well as to fund managersOptuma is at the top end when it comes to price and you will need a powerful PC to run it, but with IQFeed, GFT and MT4 data integrations, great customer services and the full range of instruments covered (Stocks, EFTs, Mutual Funds, Options, Futures, FOREX, Bonds) for the premium price you get the premium package.

A perfect 10 for fundamental scanning and screening for Optuma.  A well thought out real-time scanning and filtering engine and the fundamental watchlists are well implemented

Optumahas a fantastic array of technical indicators and drawing tools.  Specializing in Gann tools with a full suite including Gann Grid Lines, Gann Fans, and Gann Swing.

Also included are Elliott Wave and Darvas Box, the full set of exotic indicators are present.  To top it off they have also implemented an excellent astrological analysis suite as an upgrade for those of you who believe in that sort of thing, yes commodity traders I am talking about you :).

Optuma has back-testing well covered also, with a well-implemented backtesting and system analysis toolset.  Best in class up there with MetaStock, QuantShare, and NijaTrader as the industry leaders, but unlike the others, you do not need a Ph.D. in mathematics to setup and test your system.

Optuma requires a high-end PC workstation to function at speed, but if you are a PRO trader this is not a problem.  The interface, the shortcuts, the whole thought process implemented into Optuma does warrant this good score in an important section.  They also have an extensive video training library which is very valuable to the new customer.

The new kid on the block,Trendspideris doing something very different and innovative to separate itself from the crowded stock chart analysis software market.  It solves the problem of too much time spent doing analysis, drawing trendlines, tweaking indicators and analyzing timeframes.

Automatic Trend Lines, Automatic Support & Resistance Lines and Multi Time-Frame Analysis are new to the industry and will change it moving forward.

The automated trendline detection saves a lot of time for traders, speeds up trade preparation in the morning, and improves accuracy.  The TrendSpider algorithm uses mathematics to correlate all the bars on a chart and then draw the lines.  It highlights the touches at peaks and troughs in a price trend.  As a technical analyst, this is how you are supposed to do it, the more times a price touches the trend line and reverses the stronger the trend.  Therefore, if a price breaks through a strong area of support and resistance it is more predictive.

Here is where is get even more interesting, the Multi-Timeframe Analysis can be used to super-impose trendlines or indicators from different timeframes onto a single chart. Instead of constantly switching timeframes and redrawing trendlines it is simplý there.  It is not just for trendlines though you can use it with the array of 42stock chart indicatorsto ensure you do not miss anything.  Dan Ushman the company founder uses it in his trading especially with indicators like Bollinger Bands and withtrendlineswhich help expose things other traders miss when they are focused on one timeframe or one indicator at a time.

One thing I also really like is the price indicator analysis, you can let the application plot, name and highlight your Japanese Candlestick patterns of choice.  Want to find Evening Doji Stars, Hammers or Engulfing Patterns?  Just turn on the pattern recognition it is that easy.

Trendspider is an HTML5 application, which means it works on any connected device, requires zero installation, zero data stream or data download configuration.  This appeals to me a lot because with a single click you are up and running.

Pricing starts at Free to try, but the real power comes in withPRO Trader Planwhich starts at $24.75 per month.  This includes Real-Time Data, NASDAQ, NYSE & Amex Stocks, ETFs and surprisingly Cryptocurrencies.  In this package, you also get unlimited lookups, trend detection, and 10 Dynamic Price Alerts + a free 30 minute personal one on one training session.

TheElite Trade Planis $37.25 per month, has everything the PRO plan has and in addition includes after-hours and pre-market data, OTC, Forex and Futures data.  On top of that, you get 20 Dynamic Alerts.  Considering you get real-time data the pricing is very competitive, in fact considerably lower than other charting software vendors.

The Best U.S. & international Brokers for Online Stock Trading are:

Firstrade Best free broker for stocks, ETFs & options.  Includes free Morningstar access and 5-star customer satisfaction.

TC2000 Brokerage Recommended for investors buying stocks, options & ETFs directly from charts including incredibly low margin rates.

SpeedTrader Recommended for Day Traders wanting Direct Market Access & Lightning Execution for very low-cost Stock & Options trading.

Interactive Brokers Ideal for active investors and day traders, seeking the absolute lowest trading costs, direct market access for fast execution and best in class margin costs.

Ally Invest Best match for investors seeking low commissions, good execution on stocks, options, ETFs, futures, bonds & semi-automated portfolio management.

There is really a lot to love about Firstrade. On August 23, 2018, Firstrade made the extremely bold move to move to complete Commission Free Trading.  Firstrade were already our 2018 review winner and had amongst the lowest commissions in the industry, now they have officially the lowest in the industry withZERO, yes ZERO commissions.

What also stands out is the unique offering of over 700 commission free Exchange Traded Funds (ETFS) on offer.  That is over twice as many as the next best competitor TD Ameritrade.

You also get completely cost-free access to the suite of Morning Star research, only 3 other brokers offer free research of this quality.

The Firsttrade Trading Platforms Firstrade Navigator, Options Wizards and Real-time Watchlists hold up well against the competition.

And finally a 5-Star Customer Satisfaction Rating rounds of the package, for an excellent Brokerage for mid to long-term investors.

TC2000 Brokerageis a relatively new offering from Worden Brothers Inc.  This is a well-established company offering one of the best Stock Market Analysis Software Packages around.  The logical step for Worden Brothers was to expand into the Brokerage side of the business.

And boy they did a good job.  They offer Stock Trade commissions at $4.95, $2.- less than TD Ameritrade and Merrill Lynch and their options trade fare even better at $2.95 + $0.65 per contract.

They surprisingly lead the pack in Margin Interest Rates.  When you buy a stock with margin, it enables you to leverage that stock with borrowed money.  This is traditionally where brokerage firms make a lot of profit, through this lending.

However, TC2000 Brokerage does not take advantage of the client in this area and simply offers very low-interest rates of 3% to 4.2% on the margin loans.

The icing on the cake though is that you get to trade directly off the charts with TC2000.  TC2000 enables real-time fundamental and technical screening of the entire stock markets, including ETFs and enables you to easily create indicators from market conditions.  Not only that the options trading in TC2000 is arguably the best in the industry.

TC2000 brokerage only offers trading in Stocks, Options and ETFs, but is this is all you need then this is a first class operation that should meet your needs.

SpeedTrader is the Broker in the review targeting specifically Day Traders with their services.  So, what do day traders look for?  Direct Market Access, Fast Execution, Low per Share Commissions Structures?  Well, SpeedTrader has all of this.

The key service offering is Direct Market Access, meaning you do not go through a 3rd party market maker for your trades, you deal directly on the market itself, which means better visibility of prices and tighter spreads.

They also offer a very low commissions per share option as an alternative to a fixed cost per trade.

The per share commissions structure comes in at $0.00044 per share, which is a significant cost saving for any trade under 10,000 shares.

Also, when it comes to Options Trading Fees the offering of $1.99 + $0.40 per contract is the among the best of all 20 brokers reviewed.

Suffice to say, extremely competitive.  So, if you are into Stocks and Options Day Trading this is a good place to be.

Also, SpeedTrader has a great promotion on now with $500 free trades if you open an account.

No review would be complete without the grandfather of online discount brokers.  Not only is Interactive Brokers (IB) a long established company, it is also big.  It has a very complete set of services, enabling your to trade practically anything on any market.  Stocks, Options, ETFs, Mutual Funds, Bonds, Foreign Exchange and even futures and commodities.

Usually, when a company is well established and large, it loses its competitive edge.  Not so with Interactive Brokers.

The industries lowest commissions on Stock Trades at $1,- and great commissions on Options demonstrate competitiveness.  They also have the lowest margin interest rate in the review, in fact probably in the industry.

When it comes to the trading platform there is no additional costs, Web Trader, and TWS are all free.

Interactive Brokers caters to the more professional investor, or at least those with a minimum account balance of $10,000.  Also, you will need to have a balance of $100,000 to be able to trade Forex.

Another huge bonus is that IB manages to throw into the package Zacks and Morning Star research for free, including real-time news.

IB manages to span the divide between Day Traders and Long-Term investors and that is not easy.  If you plan to span those worlds also IB is a natural choice.

Ally is not just a broker, they are a financial institution offering banking, credit cards, home loans, and auto finance and insurance.  After the acquisition of TradeKing in 2016 they branched into trading & brokerage services.

This acquisition seems to have worked well as they have a very competitive suite of investing services and excellent customer satisfaction scores.

Stock trading commissions weigh in at $4.95 per trade and for larger volume traders there are discounts available.

If you have a trading balance of $100,000 and or make more than $30 trades per month, the cost drops to $3.95.  Also, the Options trading costs drop from $4.95 +$0.65 per contract to $3.95 + $0.50 per contract, making them more competitive than TD Ameritrade, Fidelity & Merrill.

Ally also offers the full suite of vehicles such as Stocks, Options, Bonds, ETFs, Forex and even Commodity Futures.

If you are looking for an institution to provide competitive rates across the full suite of investing and banking services the Ally could be a very good choice.
