Overwhelming Stock Market

Hello fellow traders, i'm a beginner trader and i started a demo account with thinkorswim. I have read a few technical analysis books in regards to stock trading. However, when i started playing with the demo account, i felt overwhelmed by the hefty number of stocks on the market. I just don't know which one to focus on.

I have read somewhere that all traders are using some form of stock scanner to help them filter out stocks that met certain criteria. So here are my questions..

1) Other than using stock scanner are there any other options? (I realized most of them cost some $$ )
2) If there is no other way, which stock scanner should i use?
3) Is this form of trading recommended? (Using stock scanner to filter out stocks and then trade irregardless to the fundamental of the company)

Thanks for reading my elementary questions.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks bro.

I visited the site and it seems to be a little confusing to me. The screener shows lots of fundamental criteria. Is there any screener i can use to detect technical movement? For example, when golden crossover occurs.

ThinkOrSwim stock Scan has more "Add Study Filters" and one can also write custom thinkscript filters. But those features are only available on a live account TOS platform.
