Since the introduction of the new stock screener, I have received numerous requests to add more metrics and/or to add more ways to build the constraints so that different strategies can be easily implemented using the new screener.
Hence the number of metrics have grown, from the initial 30 to the current 60+ different metrics covering both technicals and fundamentals. The number of ways to build the constraints have also doubled from the initial 2 to 4 so that you can easily translate various trading strategies easily.
However, I noticed there are two groups of relatively different users:
- One group uses the stock screeners regularly and heavily
- The other group almost never looks at it
I am curious as to why and have created a cafe post hoping to gather more feedback. I would really appreciate it if you could take come time to share your “why”s.
If you are using it, what do you like about it? Is there anything else that can be added to make it even better for you?
If you are not using it, why not? Do you simply do not like screeners? Are there other better screeners out there you are using? Or is it not user-friendly enough for you to easily understand and use it?
