Screening and Charting Services
Today is 5/5/2016
- Stock screeners allow you to select specific stocks based on various criteria that you supply.
- Charting services allow users to look at charts showing the price (and other measures) of a stock or mutual fund over time. The data for the charts comes from the stock exchange where the issue is listed, and vendors buy the data stream and package it. There isn't any difference in the data that is displayed on two different charting services.
