This screen also has a base version, but in this version we added some additional criteria to find stocks which qualify for quality investing. Quality investors only invest in the best and most profitable companies available. The screener can filter for criteria which are quantifiable, but besides this more research should be done on the results. Make sure to check the linked article for more information on quality investing and the screen.
This is a base stock screener configuration for the CANSLIM system introduced by William O'Neill. It is intended as a starting point and the settings are discussed in more detail in the linked article. CANSLIM is a system with strong fundamental criteria related mostly to EPS growth, but also has some pure technical requirements as well as entry and exit rules.
This configuration of the stock screener was created based on the rules described in the book "The little book that makes you rich", by Louis Navellier. The book defines eight criteria that should be met before a stock qualifies as growth stock which fits the system. These eight rules were converted into screener settings and there is a linked article available which discusses this screen a bit deeper.
The "Best Dividend Stocks" screen uses the ChartMill Dividend Rating to find the best stocks for dividend investing. The dividend rating takes into account reliability and sustainability of the dividend. We also use the health and profitability ratings to make sure only solid stocks are selected.
This screen finds squeeze play setups on stocks that are in a strong uptrend. A squeeze play setup occurs when the Bollinger Bands are inside the Keltner channels. When this happens, the stock has been trading in a narrow range for a while. A major move could happen when the stock breaks out of this trading range.
This screen finds bull flag patterns. A bull flag is a technical continuation pattern which can be observed in stocks with strong uptrends. The pattern takes shape when the stock retraces by going sideways (or by slowly declining) after an initial big rise in price. When you see the graphical representation of this pattern, you’ll notice that it somehow looks like a flag on a pole.
This screens searches for Pocket Pivots in Strong stocks that happen near the SMA(10). A pocket pivot is a positive sign of price/volume behavior. Whether the stock is a buy or not remains to be judged on a case by case basis.
This pattern forms when a rising trend comes to an end. The Dark Cloud Cover is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern that consists of two candlesticks, with the first being a long bullish candlestick (white or green) and the second being a long bearish candlestick (black or red).
Investors come in different styles and sizes. In this article we take a look at four different fundamental screens that can serve as a basis for building your own investment portfolio with ChartMill. I'll explain what each style entails and what basic filters you can use in ChartMill to get a first basic selection.
Support and resistance are technical price levels that are important for investors whose strategy is based on technical analysis and price action. However, fundamental investors can certainly benefit from these price levels as well. After all, these are specific price zones that are watched by a lot of buyers and sellers and where there is a lot of price action. That allows for better timing of entries and a better delineation of risk.
