  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Esignal Value

deaddog View Post
I use stockcharts for scanning (about 20 bucks a month with annual subscrition) and Finvis (free) for fundy scans.
Just wondering if eSignal added any value.

Don't use any indicators except price action. TWS has bracket orders that can be attached so exits are submitted when the order is placed and can be adjusted as the trade progresses.

I haven't used the particular scanners you are talking about, but I have used the scanners in TD, Schwab and TS and I think the power scanner beats them all hands down for finding stocks with volatility. There is a reason it is sub based, but yes it is extra on top of the software. I believe these scans could be setup in another scanner though as well.

I have only traded ES and NQs with TWS and normally I use Esignal for equities. I would have liked using TWS, but I have been unable to find OHLC indicators for the charts. I also really like the Esignal power scanner and the hot lists for finding volatility in equities. I am able to nail 99% of my teachers picks with the power scanner, so I either pay him or sub to Esignal for the scanner. Something I need to work on being able to do with any trading tools; I know.

Me too. I use eSignal for equities. I like their power scanner. Also, I got a super lucky. I have my e-Signal costs covered due to my account at Tradier. Not sure Tradier is running that promotion now, but they had it this May.

Hello kieth;

Does the esignal package give you access to all the markets including. Futures and futures options? I know tradier is just for stock options. I would like to get a sub thru tradier and use esignal as a front end to ibkr as well.

Additionally, the option analytix program is 250 buck add on. So I would prob need an excel rtd to build up the risk mgt part.
