Practice English Speaking&Listening with: How I Use The TradingView Stock Screener to Find The Best Stocks To Trade

Difficulty: 0

In this video, I want to show you

how I use the TradingView

stock screener to find the best

stocks to trade.

TradingView is a software that is

available for free.

They also have a low-cost version

and I believe it's only $14.95.

And there's a lot of things that you

can do with TradingView.

Today we're going to focus on

the stock screener.

So let's jump onto the computer

right now and let me show you how

I personally use the stock

screener to find the best stocks to

trade. So let's actually

go back here for a moment

to just,

because when you go to their

website, this is what

it looks like.

And as you can see, there's no

chart. There's some news

here, I believe, and

some basic charts.

So in order to get to the stock

screener, you can do it right from


I recommend that you bring up any

stock, it doesn't really matter.

So here, for this example, I'm just

bringing up Apple.

And as soon as you click on Apple,

you want to click here on

full-featured chart

as it comes up.

So it's loading here for a moment.

We will see right here, full-featured


So you want to click on this.

So once you do, you will now

see a full-featured chart that looks

kind of like this

and you will see you have a chart

here. Then at the bottom, you'll

see that there's a stock screener,

text notes and on the right-hand

side, you also have quite a few


Now, let's talk about the first

one here on the upper right.

This is where you can have your

watchlist of the stocks that you're

watching. Now, I like to look at the

indices here, like to look at

Bitcoin, crude oil, and

gold. These are the symbols

that I am watching.

Now, here is where

the stock screener comes in.

The third or fourth button down

here on the right-hand side

is showing the so-called hotlist.

So there are three predefined

hotlists that come up when you click

on this.

This is for the US exchanges, the

volume gainers.

This where you see the stocks that

really have had a lot

of volume today.

So, for example, GE up


Apple up 11%,

Ford up 4.4%.

You also see the percentage


And this where you see some weird

stocks like CREX, no idea

what they're doing.

Well as you can see it was a penny

stock trading at $0.80, now trading

at $3.80.

So I didn't find this

particularly useful.

Same here for the percentage losers,

for example, you have here DRIO,

DarioHealth, didn't

find this particularly useful.

However, this is where you

can define your own scanner

and I want to show you how to do

that, and also the scanner that

I personally like to use the best.

So when you click on the lower left,

on the stock screener, it brings

up the stock screener and you have

predefined screeners in there.

And look at this, all that

we talked about right now, the

volume leaders that we had on

the right-hand side, as

well as the top gainers

and the top losers, we have

them right here.

You see, it doesn't really matter

which one you pick.

Just pick any for now, because

I want to show you, we pick the top

losers how I configure

this list. As you know, right

now, I am using this scanner

to find stocks where I can sell

put options as the markets

are crazy right now.

I mean, today is April 28th.

We are in Day 46 of these crazy


And while the markets have been

crashing and now are slowly coming

up, selling puts has been really,

really great. So the stock screener

that I'm about to set up right now

is for exactly that


But as you follow along, you'll see

that you can use this screener in

many, many ways and

let me show you exactly how to

set it up.

So, again, it doesn't matter, you

just pick any of the predefined

lists, I'm picking the top losers

list. Now, this is where I

like to go to filters

and I like to adjust

the filters to meet my


Let me show you one more time how to

get there.

You see this big blue button on

the upper right here of this


So when you click on filters,

that's where you can adjust it.

Here is how I like to

adjust it.

I want to see a percent change

where the stock today is

losing more than 2%.

So I'm entering a minus two


The last price, I like to take

a look at stocks that are trading

between $5

and $150.

So this is just me,

yours might be different I'm just

showing you how to use this


Now, in terms of symbol type, this

is the third thing out of four

that I'm going to change.

Here I'm only looking at common


So I'm unselected depositary

received and ETFs.

So again, super easy.

All I need to do is that

I adjust four different


I'll leave the exchange as is.

But the one thing that I'm looking

for here right now is

the volume filter.

So again, just to briefly recap,

I am changing the change percent

to a negative 2, I'm changing

the last to between $5

and $150, the symbol

stock to common stock.

And the fourth thing that I'm

changing is the volume.

I would like to see stocks that

are trading at least

a million shares per day

up to whatever more than

50 million.

So these are the

only four things that

I'm changing.

And by doing this, you see that

right now I have 125


Now, this is where right now

you see top losers has

a little asterisk there so

I have changed it.

You can now save this screen

as whatever you want.

So you can use your own

name, you see, I use the name

where I said most volatile markets.

So this is where you could just say,

"OK, just a test

to show how it works."

So you can save these

settings that you just did.

And you see then whatever you're

picking, you can go back

to just the test to show how

it works.

And you have, again, your 129

matches back.

Now I want to show you how to

adjust the columns here.

This the second thing that I do.

But let me ask you thus far,

is this making sense?

Is this helpful?

Before we continue.

Because if it is, do me a favor and

click on like really quick so

that I know that we are going at the

right pace, that we are not going

too fast, and that we are not

going to slow.

So if you could do me a quick favor

hit like, I would really appreciate

it and then I'll show you how to

customize the columns.

Thank you. OK.

Let's go back to the screen here and

you see that now we have a lot of

columns here.

We have the ticker, we have the last

price that is traded it, the change.

We have the change in dollars, so

that's the change in percent, that's

a change in dollar.

A rating, the volume, the market

cap. And there are a lot of columns

that I personally do not

use. So here's the really,

really cool thing.

All you need to do to get rid of a

column is right

mouse click on it and remove

the column. So I like to

keep the ticker, I like to keep

the last price, I would like to know

this. And I like the percent

change. I don't need the change

in dollars.

But again, for you, it might be

different this is why I want to show

you how to do this in general.

But I'm removing this column here.

I also personally don't care

about the rating.

I do my own rating so I'm removing

this. And you're doing it by right

mouse clicking on the column

and remove it right here.

I don't need the volume information

because I already know that all of

these stocks are trading between

1 million and above, so

I can remove this.

I also don't care about the market

cap, right mouse click and

here we go.

The P/E ratio not important

to me, I'm removing this column, the

EPS I don't care about

it. Again, you, it can

be different for you, so you might

care about it or not.

Employees don't care about this.

And the sector is the last column

and I leave this one in.

Now, if you want, you can click on

these three dots on the right-hand

side and you can add

a bunch of columns.

As you can see, there is a lot

of information available, so

you can add as many columns

as you want.

So the only columns that I like to

see is the ticker symbol,

the last price, the change in

percent, and the sector.

Now also, in the same

way as we have saved the filter, we

can save the column


And the difference is that this is

here on the left-hand side.

So you see on the left-hand side you

have the column sets.

Here this is

where we selected the filter.

So we can go for volume gainers and

it is still using the columns that

we just defined.

Or we can go for the top

losers or what we have just

saved, just a test to show

how it works.

So we can now save our own

columns here, and we can save

this in the same way that we

say, "OK.

This is the best

layout for columns.

Just kidding."

You get the idea, right?

So you have two things that you can

save. You can save your filter

and you can save your column layout.

So going back to the filters, you

see the ones that we changed is

that we went to the change

percent below minus 2%, last

between $5 and a $150,

for the symbol type only the common

stock, and the volume we changed

from 1 million and above.

For the column layout, this is where

I choose the ticker,

the last price, the change in

percent, and the sector.

So you can close the screener by

clicking on height here, and

you can bring it back up by clicking

on stock screener.

And then you can quickly go through

this and look at the stocks and

see which ones of these

you like. This was just a very brief

intro on how I use TradingView

the stock screener to find the best

stocks to trade.
