At Investar, we have always tried to make life easy for our end-users and in that spirit, we have been working on a feature called “Multiple Contract Note Import” for our Portfolio Manager.
This feature makes it very easy to import multiple contract notes (a 1000 transactions can be imported in less than 20 secs) from a broker in one shot. We introduced this feature in the version released on 19th Nov, 2010. The following video demonstrates how to use it.
If you like the feature and would like support for your broker, you can request it in our Broker Import section.
Missed our Live Webinar on “Using the Intraday Screener”? Recording for the webinar is now available in our Education Section.
The webinar was conducted in a LIVE market session and covers two simple buying strategies: 1) Bullish 5-20 EMA Crossovers and 2) Gainers on Strong Volume.
All the different intraday scans are categorized according to three Technical Analysis Strategies: Scans that can help you in identifying 1) Support/Resistance Breakouts 2) Buy/Sell signals in indicators and 3) Buy/Sell signals in candlesticks; so you can focus on the right ones according to your trading strategy.
Volume terms like Vol% and scans like Gainers on Strong Volume (Intraday) and Gainers on Strong Volume (End-Of-Day) are also explained. If you’d rather see the slides instead they are available in this blog post.
Recently I did a FREE webinar on the best ways to use the Investar Intraday Screener. Here are the slides used in that webinar. Missed the webinar and want to attend the next one? Check out our Upcoming Webinars.
I got some good feedback on multiple timeframe scans and also suggestions for some more intraday scans. We take all our feedback very seriously, so if you have suggestions for any intraday scans or anything specific you are looking for, in the intraday screener, don’t hesitate to leave any feedback in the blog comments or the support section.
Some of our users have been having some confusion about how to go about setting Scan Alerts in our recently released Investar 2.0. I thought of demonstrating how to do that using this short Youtube video.
Intraday Scan Alerts and Intraday Screener are invaluable to the Intraday/Swing Trader because by using together, one can come up with good intraday/short-term trading ideas! Enjoy and don’t forget to leave any feedback you have about the video or the feature.
