Hi guys,

For the past 6 months I have created watch lists of etf's. There's about 50 groups containing relevant etf's.
To research these within the watch list individually I have to go to different web sites.
For example : To study the etf I would go to ETF DB, Morningstar and a few others.
To see performance I would go to ETF Screen.com.
However none of these sites offer real time information.

I have studied a few trading platforms that belong to Scott trade, TD Ameritrade and E Trade, but none are ETF efficient. They are more tailored to stocks and options.

Although these platforms allow you to customize column headings, some of the column headings for etf's are not very relevant.

Imagine a trading platform/software, which would allow you to create many different groups of Etf's. If your screen was large enough most of these groups could be visualized in real time.

Secondly, Imagine the quote grid of every group had relevant information only. For example apart from the obvious (Symbol, name, bid, ask, price etc) we could include columns (1day performance, 5 day, 1month, 3mos, 6mos, 1yr, 3yr).

Most of the trading platforms I have looked at, don't even give you the NAV or the yield.
They will however headings such as EPS which is not relevant for Etf's.

My question is ?
Is there an existing platform that would allow me to see multiple quote grids in real time?
Is there a platform which takes into consideration the column headings relevant to etf's, so that the trader does not have to visit multiple web pages to gather information whilst trading?

Did you take a look at TDAmeritrade's ThinkOrSwim Platform? The marketwatch quote columns can be
changed to include yield columns. You can do so by right-clicking on the columns row and select "customize", then a separate window shows up where you can add or remove column types and options to create your own column type.
