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.

Watch this video on YouTubeWatch The Video OverviewBenzinga Free

Benzinga is one of the major news providers you have probably never heard of.  They do offer a huge amount of free news and thought-provoking original articles aimed and traders and investors for free on their website.

But if you are a frequent trader, especially if you are trading with the news, for example short-term options trades at quarterly earnings announcement time, or you have a large stake in a company and need to be the first to know if the stock might tank due to a failed FDA application, then you will want to upgrade to a version of theBenzinga PRO Serviceto get an edge in the market.

setup your watchlist of stocks you hold or are interested in and receive real-time emails, app alerts and audio alerts

Unique to Benzinga is Security Snapshot View, essentially a summary of all the important News, Fundamentals and Charts.  Designed to give you a clean quick view of the whole picture for a given stock.  This includes all the core financial documents like balance sheet and important income statement information.

A Great Way To Visualize what is coming up soon.  Below we see the

, instantly you can see what Macro Economic News is upcoming, but what you also see in the column on the right is the potential impact of the news.  As you can see Benzinga have accurately rated the Existing Home Sales announcement as a potentially large impact.

Benzinga Calendar feature is an excellent customizable view into what is about to happen look at the impact column to the right

Some other really useful design points are when viewing the streaming news, you instantly see what type of news it is.  The image below shows us that the Ticker:PPO news is an analyst rating change.  The News for Google is a rumor (I love this feature), and finally, the Novartis news is a breaking FDA approval, which could be vital if trading that stock.

In Summary, theBenzinga Basic Packageiscost effectiveand gives you access to real-time news at a fraction of the cost of other news providers like Bloomberg, giving you a professional edge without the expense.

In addition to the features above, the higher level package includes the following benefits:

this is really impressive, I have it open whilst watching the markets so I do not need to be watching the screen.  Every 2 minutes a real-time audio feed announces the latest news via my speakers this service alone is worth the upgrade to Benzinga PRO Essential.  As was writing this an announcement came through that Novartis got FDA approval for a new drug.  I just checked online this is not on the web yet, nor announced on Bloomberg TV.

this is a really excellent feature that allows you to feel the sentiment of the analyst who submits the news item, this is rated as 1 to 3 bulls or bears depending on how the analyst feels the news will move the stock.  This is unique and a great asset.

Imagine chatting directly with the analyst or reporter that submitted an article.  This feature allows you to do just that, by questioning directly the Benzinga news desk to deep dive into your own specific questions straight from the hub of the news. The news team also highlight what they believe to be important news only for essential users.

Benzinga Analysts have frequent exclusive interviews with CEOs and they publish exclusively key comments that may provide key insights into a stock you own.

at live earnings announcement events if you trade earnings this is your ticket to sitting at the event its self, getting analyst feedback as it happens.

If you are serious about trading in the stock market and need real-time access to the news that moves markets then Benzinga Pro is a realistically priced and extremely fast news service that is designed by traders for traders.

Recommended for those who need excellent real-time news, access to a huge stock systems market and powerful technical analysis with global data coverage all backed up with excellent customer services.  MetaStock with its Thomson Reuters Refinitiv Xenith News service integration is worth the money just for the news service, but it is so much more than just news.

MetaStock 16 has full Xenith/Eikon 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.  Reuters also provides TV news coverage through smartphone and smart TV applications, it is after all the largest news agency in the world.  Along with the package you get Reuters Insider alerts which are exclusive content and research provided by the expert analysts on the financial network team.

Core features include detailed financial snapshots of a company.  In the image below you see the Refinitiv Xenith Streaming News Screen for Netflix (Ticker:NFLX).  Take a look at the attention to detail here and the amount of original news coming in from the Reuters Network, you will get this news before anyone else.  Included in Refinitiv Xenith you also get Stock Quotes, Charts, detailed Analyst Estimates and a full listing of all financial details and SEC filings, complete with upcoming events listings so you are prepared for action.  Thomson Reuters as you can imagine covers everything including stock, options, bonds, futures, FX and macroeconomic news and data.  An unparalleled source of information.

The platform itself is very easy to use as MetaStock have placed an emphasis on the user experience and workflow.  You can have multiple workspaces for multiple monitors and save each workspace seamlessly for reuse.  Of course, the software is available on all devices from PCs to Smartphones and TVs.

MetaStock Refinitiv Xenith Pricing and Software

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.  There are two packages below that I would recommend to ensure you have the real-time news package with MetaStock.  Using any of thelinks in this reviewyou will get automatically your first month free.

Bloomberg is one of the powerhouses of financial investing news services, catering primarily to Wall Street and Institutions, many of which pay a lot of money for the real-time feeds and the core market intelligence the Bloomberg Terminals bring.

Most of us will know Bloomberg from the Bloomberg TV stream which is broadcast in most developed countries and available over the internet. It is a resource-rich multimedia experience and contains mostly high-quality reporting debate and opinion.  Nearly every CEO on the planet at earnings time with show up to the Bloomberg studios for an interview.

Trading during the day?Have the free Bloomberg TV running in the background keeping you up to date with the latest market developments.  One big drawback is too many adverts, repeated over and over again, however, it is still a good news service.  But here is the kicker, the Bloomberg TV broadcast has a delay this means that the news you are watching has already been seen and actioned by the professional money managers who have the premium Bloomberg Service

Bloombergs core market is not the independent investor, it is professional traders and analysts in investment banks and on trading floors.  To unlock the service you will need a Bloomberg Terminal which is a specialized hardware and software solution which maximizes speed and data connectivity.  The terminal requires significant training to be able to use it effectively and will cost you $2,200 per month for the privilege.

Bloomberg is under constant price pressure from companies such as Thomson Reuters,LightspeedInteractive Brokersand evenBenzingafor news.

MarketWatch is a well-established company and part of the Dow Jones network of businesses which also includes the Wall Street Journal, Barrons and BigCharts.  Interestingly the news on offer is Free and you can do the usual tasks of tracking your portfolio and viewing the standards stocks information with a free account.  If you navigate over to theMarketWatch News Vieweryou can quickly scan the latest news and even better the market pulse news.  Market Pulse is the best part of the website as is allows you to quickly scan the news simply by hovering your mouse over a headline.

In the image you can see I have selected real-time headlines, unfortunately, it neither self-updates nor provides the however over quick news scan functionality of the Market Pulse tab.

Also due to the huge advertisements on the site, the News Viewer is painfully small which does not help its usability.

The Wall Street Journal Website offers a huge array of news and as you can guess it is primarily financial news.  None of the news professes to be real-time or streaming news, but the website is full of thought-provoking opinion and some insightful journalism.  The WSJ Markets part of the website has stock market specific news and statistics including stock screeners and portfolio tracking tools.  The overall service has a paywall, which means after some browsing you will have limited access to the articles so you will need to subscribe.

Wall Street Journal pricing comes in at a reasonable $21.50 per month for the print edition which is delivered once per week, $19.50 for the Digital only edition and Print & Digital for $22.50 per month. With the Digital version, you also get access to all the Apps, Podcasts and exclusive interviews.  There is also a premium benefits program that enables you to attend various events and seminars.

The best services that enable you to collaborate, follow and message with other investors are:

TradingView the ultimate socially connected trading platform

Benzinga the news network with a huge live chat forum

StockTwits a version of Twitter specifically for investors

Twitter the biggest social platform for all topics

Wall Street Oasis for those employed the investment banking worldTradingView the ultimate socially connected trading platform

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

StockTwits is a mini version of Twitter with a few bells and whistles like watchlists, basic charts, and hashtag communities.  If you like to be in a room full of millions of unqualified opinions all screaming at you at the same time then StockTwits could be for you.  MyTradingviewmarket and stock analysis also funnels through to StockTwits, so if you are on this platform follow at me

Twitter is the ultimate shouting match, but also compelling.  Every opinion, voice, and character is represented.  If you tweet an opinion on a stock with the with the ticker starting with a $ sign then it will show up on StockTwits also. For example,$fbwill show a message on Twitter and Stocktwits to all those following that symbol.  Enough of the basic tweeting lessons, Twitter is great for follwoing p
