As soon as you open your TradeKing account, you will get instant access to our award-winning research and trading tools. Our tools are a big reason Barron's awarded us four stars (tops among web-based brokers) in their 2012 and 2013 surveys, and we're sure they'll impress you, too. Here's an overview of what you will get.
Research an option contract's Greeks and implied volatility. Forecast theoretical values and compare them to current bid/ask prices. And change variables to reflect your market forecast — all in an intuitive, easily understood format.
The Probability Calculator uses implied volatility to help you determine the probability of hitting your targets — before you ever place a trade.
Whether you're an options or stock investor, this is an extremely handy tool to have in your arsenal.
We make it incredibly easy to get a thorough understanding of your trade's profit and loss potential before you place it, and see how outcomes may change based on changes in volatility and time. This tool is another must-have for every investor.
Screen over 150,000 individual option contracts with our powerful Options Scanner and find the exact trades that meet your criteria. Simply choose from up to 25 criteria (such as cost, volatility, time to expiration, liquidity and risk) and this tool will deliver the matching option contracts. You can then place a trade right from the Scanner. Or better yet, the Strategy Scanner will find specific option strategies that meet your selected criteria and then place a trade for you - all in a matter of seconds.
Find stocks, ETFs and Mutual Funds to suit your strategies based on pre-defined screens, or create your own customized screens, which can be saved or fine-tuned whenever you like.
Keep track of tax obligations across your accounts and understand potential tax ramifications before you decide to place your trades. This handy tool does it all with a few clicks of your mouse and is another must-have for any serious investor.
We offer a full suite of free technical analysis tools, powered by Recognia, featuring chart pattern recognition, price forecasting and full educational support. It's an absolute must-have for any serious investor.
