Stock Market Websites for Day Trading of Stocks, ETFs and for stock Option trading

from Bruce Lynch , Boston area Technology Entrepreneur, at Exxel International.

Each day, what web sites and particular pages do I use for day trading and for real time quotes and charts?

Web Sites for Day Trading, for Quotes, Charts and to quickly screen for stocks.

My trading is with no money, a free fantasy stock trading account with several separate portfolios. One account is for day trading of stocks and ETFs. Another trades call and put Options. A 3rd portfolio is for position trades, longer term investing.

The virtual stock market web site that I use is Wall Street Survivor. The supporting web sites that are open and used each day include Google Finance, MSN Money, Free Real Time and some times for their 52 week highs and lows.

Free Real-Time Stock Quotes

For free real-time stock quotes, I use all the time two out of the three sites, Google Finance and MSN Money.

Google Finance for real-time Quotes and Charts

Google Finance My Google Chrome browser window has a separate browser tab for each of my Indicators and for the Stocks or Options I am trading. I don't watch option prices. Instead I watch the stock symbol under-lying the equity or ETF option.

As indicators, to see if stock price direction is changing, I include DIA, GS and FAS and sometimes QID. Today the stock symbols that I traded included GS, BIDU and ERX.

Microsoft MS Money Central, for more timely real time quotes


Some times a few seconds can become very important, when a stop is about to be hit to cause the closing of a position or to trigger a new ones. My comparisons are not scientific. I

It seems to me the Money Central is the most timely with Google Finance often off by 2 or 3 seconds and off by more than Google. To start getting real time quotes from MSN use this link to the DIA Dow Jones 30 index., for real time Lists Do you want the real time prices for Boeing, McDonaldf's and each of the Dow Jones 30 average? See which are doing well and poorly.

Gainers and Losers: See the top stock price gainers and losers by percent and by dollars per share. Momentum traders look for stocks on the move. Such volatile stocks are possible stock picks that day.

Free Real Time's list of ETFs and Prices, Exchange Traded Funds, with real time stock price quotes is a convenient reference. An extract from Free Real Time follows.

When I have time before the market open, I use the Nasdaq Pre-Market for quotes. Nasdaq's Pre-Market Heat Map is great. It shows the top stock market Gainers and Losers in rank order before the stock market opens at 9:30. An example follows with BRCM, Broadcom, gaining after a huge gain during the trading day.

Nasdaq Pre-Marlet Heat Map

Stocks, Indexes and ETFs that I watch as indicators

DIA, an ETF mutual fund of the 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial average

The DIA is what I use as if it is the Market. I also buy and sell DIA and call and put options on the DIA. The Google Finance page always shows real time quote for indexes. DIA and the actual Dow 30 Average trade with DIA above or below the average by about 15 and as many as 40 points.

GS, Goldman Sachs trades at a high price

1. See small stock price changes. 2. GS might move before the Market Indexes change.

At about $160.00 now,that high price lets us see the tiny real time stock price changes as the market moves around. The traders in GS are smart and try to anticipate any change of direction or an upcoming move in the market. The DIA can seem stuck in a small range.

GS or FAS might move out of their trading range before DIA or the market averages above or below their recent trading range. It often is a correct signal that the market will move soon.

High Price, High Volume stocks

Very high daily volume stocks you may want to watch include Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, Baidu, First Solar, the GLD gold index, Google, Freeport McMoran, Master Card, Monsanto, Netflix, Salesforce CRM, the TLT 30 Year Treasury ETF. At Google Finance I created several different portfolios. One Portfolio is what I have traded in recent days. Another portfolio is a large Watch List, every stock symbol I may trade plus many as indicators like one for Copper an index of the Chinese stock market, India and Brazil.

Have you tried talking to your computer?

Your voice can dictate into email, a web page, a Word file, into chat or where ever. Like I do, you can use Dragon Naturally Speaking.

Consider Dragon Naturally Speaking for dictation and voice recognition and text to speech. For me when using the speech recognition to talk to my computer, there are two options.

1. Almost 100% voice recognition accuracy is possible with pauses.

I can speak at a normal rate with almost 100% accuracy. To do so requires a particular way to talk, leaving a pause every 3 or 4 words. Sometimes a phrase in real life is long. Leave a pause every few words when a phrase is long. Recognition accuracy is very good with more than one word and less than 5.

2. Free form talking. Then correct later.

If I keep talking at my normal rate, Dragon gets behind. When I talk without looking at the screen, the words appearing might by 2 to 30 seconds behind.

What follows is content I dictated with no looking and the screen and with no thinking about Dragon to leave those pauses. The errors are few.

Now thunderbolt, age 68, tells me about many experiences with her should have been: my father and mother.

Thunderbolt is my sister Jackie's common law, Indian, husband. He likes was missing to impress women.

Lenny in Charlestown is a Ginny liked by the Indians. Bolt likes to impress a woman, including Lenny's wife,missing Debbie. A bee about as large as I have ever seen, flew past us. "Want me to grab it for you?" She said, "no," unlike the day before infront blank missing of So So,. Hhe grabbed a hornet; missing threw it to the ground,missing and stepped on it. To be so fast is an edge when Bolt fights.
