SPAC - (Special Purpose Acquisition Company). This channel shows you companies that are thinking outside the box on how to get other companies to the open market, leaving tradition and dogmatic views in the dust. Here you will find companies ready for that next big move before they actually get to market. This is THE NEW IPO game!


EV Related

With what seems like everyone being ready to join the wave of alternative energy, this channel shows you stocks focused on companies that believe they are leading the new electric energy surge. Hedging against traditional energy plays, the focus is on the electric car market, rechargeable batteries and companies that find, make and bring these materials to market.



This channel does not provide data on Bitcoin pricing, but looks at ways to play the Crypto and Blockchain security space through traditional equities markets. There is more than one way to skin a cat as they say, and this is a way to skin that $BTC without actually owning it. Many publicly traded companies are in the ecosystem of crypto currency.


The Small Exchange

Small Exchange products are “futures-like” contracts that trade just like stocks. All products have standardized tick sizes, no short sale restrictions, and are not subject to Pattern Day Trader (PDT) rules. Any customer with any account size can day trade these products.



This channel is set up with scans showing stocks that are making big moves close to and on their earrings date for traders that are looking to take the wild ride and volatility that comes on these critical days in “earning season”.


Account Builder

This channel is set up with scans looking at stocks between $1-20 for traders with smaller account sizes. The stocks have to have solid volume so traders know they are in play and can get into those affordable positions for potentially large % gains.



This channel comes to life via Top lists (Gappers) and a Multi-strategy window at 6:45am EST and charts from 7:00 am EST with a set of scans showing stocks that are on the early move up and down from the previous day's close, giving traders a chance to participate in this time frame’s market action and also prepare for what will be on the move at the open.


Stocks I Like

This channel displays a simple top list (T Window) with the symbols you have “liked” by clicking the Heart in the chart. The heart option is available in every chart so that people that like what they see can ‘like’ much like they do posts or other things in social media. This channel becomes your custom fingerprint to the market as the only things that will appear in it are things YOU have actually liked! There is also an alert window with a conglomerate of selected alerts so you can see what alerts these tracked stocks have met on the day. Please note, that when you hover the cursor over the heart you have clicked, it will display the date and time you “liked it” so you can keep track of the progress of that ticker since it was liked.


Alpha Predator

This channel, like the Cheetah displayed, is for fast movers in that true Alpha mode with volume and price action ready to pounce for that fast “cash profit” potential. With the speed things move in this channel you need to be prepared to strike like a Cheetah.



The scans in this channel are designed for the pure momentum traders. You have New Highs on big volume, you have Low float, and one of our most popular Multi-strategy windows, Extreme Master Blaster. It has 5 Strategies, giving traders a choice in price range and float.


After Hours

With two Top lists, one for stocks that have moved up and down the most, and one that is showing stocks with the highest volume after hours this is where you can find all of the action after the closing bell. The Multi Strategie window here shows stocks in the after hours making new highs, lows and what is moving the fastest in those directions for that after hours trade or to prepare for what might be the big mover the next day!


Stocks Surgin

The scans in this channel are set up with some of the same high volume filters as the earlier channels, but here they have not traded as many shares when the volume surges come in, the point is trying to catch these moves early as they may just be starting to heat up. The Multi strategy window in this channel also does this on a multitude of time frames, from intra day highs to 52 week highs, giving time frames day traders and swing traders alike can use.


Squeeze Me

This channel works to take advantage of the “Smart Dumb” money. Big players are betting against these stocks, but the stocks in this channel are MOVING UP! This creates more momentum to the upside as the investors that are betting against the stocks, or SHORT, are forced to exit their trades by BUYING THE STOCK, hence creating more upside momentum.


Trader's Vault

Here is where you will find some of the most popular go to scans from our traders- Steve, Andy, Barrie, Jamie, and Sean. These scans are tried and tested over the years and have remained a staple in all of their layouts. Select one to add to your own custom layout, or choose them all!


Swing Ideas

Not all of us can sit around all day every day watching scans and charts. That is where this channel comes in. With scans configured differently the ideas generated in this channel have the potential for that longer term hold, Whether you are a BTFD trader, short float trader, or looking for different types of crosses, this channel has it all.


Weed Watcher

Sector Status

This is a top down sector and stock breakdown. This channel shows you which sectors and which stocks within the sectors are specifically up or down the most.


Trade The Gap

We all like to know what is gapping up or down in the premarket, but what happens once the market opens? In here you will find a series of scans from Top lists that continue to show the flow of these gappers, to Alert and Multi Strategy windows looking at gap and go, and gap and crap plays giving traders the opportunity to ride the wave up or hit the slide back down.


Explosive Winners

As the name suggests this is where you will find stocks that are up BIG and up RIGHT NOW. This is one of the more popular channels with Trade Ideas customers.


Going Down

Successful investors don’t only play the upside, they also play the downside. When investors learn how to play the downside the market becomes open to more opportunities that were otherwise hidden. This channel focuses on stocks that are behaving in a way that show their inherent weakness. We often suggest that beginner traders learn how to play the downside first as it is a critical fundamental to successful investing.



Let the trend be your friend! Here is a simple channel with just a couple of scans. A Top list with stocks that are moving up in a longer period of time using the above the 200D filter, and an Alert window that is loaded with a myriad of selected alerts showcasing our ability to find trends in any market and in any direction.



They say the best defence is a good offence, and the stocks in this scan are all focused in the sectors that provide both of these! Top lists that are pointed at aerospace, ammunition, defense, military vehicles, and national security. Traders will be armed with the best possible info for these sectors. Combined with an Alert window showing direction of these movements traders will never be caught off guard.



While crypto is all the craze, we have to pay homage to the traditional financial sector. Top lists in this channel are once again utilizing symbols lists and the displayed columns sorted. The Multi Strategy in this channel is also utilizing this symbols list while having all of the strategies enabled to find what banks are moving in what direction and what support, resistance, crosses, and volume are involved in these moves.



As the second largest economy in the world how could we not pay attention to China? We keep the theme here of Top lists with symbols lists focused on all things China. Notice that you can see the flag of the stock country in all of Trade Ideas single stock windows.



Once again we use the symbol list function combined with Top Lists showing Biotech stocks that have been actively traded, keeping traders apprised of what's moving in this sector. The Multi Strategy window here is also deploying all of its resources so no move in any direction for any reason is missed!



While Trade Ideas is primarily focused on technical analysis, we’re not ignorant to the value of the fundamentals. Top Lists in this channel carefully use a mix of volume (technical indicator) with fundamental indicators like PE, EPS and Income for the fundamentals. adding yet one more dynamic to any traders scan arsenal.


Penny Movers

As the name suggests this channel focuses on low priced low market cap stocks (Includes OTC and Pink Sheets) with serious volume primed for explosive growth. Utilizing the Top List format here we have strayed away from the symbols list theme from the previous channels and let the filters do all of the talking, along with our extremely versatile Multi Strategy window. This channel never lacks “Trade-Ideas'' for those low low price plays.


Tech Titans

Back with the Symbols List theme we keep things simple here with top lists and Multi Strategy windows focused on those industry leaders that you will most likely recognize. Stocks like AAPL, NVDA, and AMD are just to name a few.


Expert Only

If you have traded for several years before, this might be a channel for you. Here we take both traditional and unconventional looks at data and “Trade-Ideas” Here we explore filters not previously used such as “inside market” “standard deviation” and a “change in 30 minute filter” while still making sure these stocks have solid volume and interest in them.


ETF Focused

Similar to the Sector Status channel we use ETFs as the focus here only this time we are looking at the price action of these ETFs not the individual stocks in the sectors. This gives us a broad glance at whole sectors and some of those fast moving 3X ETF plays to capture the big moves of these sectors and the broader market.



Here we “dig in” to all things coming directly from the ground via the miners and the actual metals themselves (Gold, Silver, Iron Ore, etc.). We stick with the Top lists and the Multi Strategy windows that work and keep a laser focus on the stocks in this sector making the most noise.



Here we use symbols lists pointed at the Top lists and Multi Strategy windows looking at everything from Oil, to electricity to coal, even with alternative energy on the rise these titans still play a role in everyday life and their ability to move markets. These are the scans that traders can use to follow these big movers.


Unusual Options

In this channel each Top list has a set of options filters that match with the titles of said Top list utilizing our calls, puts and options contracts filters, sorting this data accordingly for display. The Multi Strategy Window here has 6 different strategies that use these filters for options as well as relative volume filters, and New Daily High and New Daily Low Alerts to show the movement of these options plays with different options and contract volume.



With two Top lists, one focusing on big thrusts of volume combined with change from open and change from close filter, the other looking at high 5 day average volume, these scans keep these highly liquid stocks in focus. The Multi Strategy window here, uses price filters combined with gargantuan 1 and 5 minute volume filter values to show what is really popping to new highs on the day. These are some of the fastest moving stocks on the day!



Using the symbols list pointed at one bullish and one bearish Top list we look at the stocks that are building anything from new homes to new highways, and fixing both and anything in between. The Multi Strategy window here has deployed a myriad of strategies utilizing these symbols lists and giving traders a look at how these stocks are moving and moving markets.


Live Trading Chat Room

Here is where Traders and new users can come to have live demonstrations of the questions iching their brains!


Wall Street Bets Stocks

Note: Trade Ideas is not affiliated or associated with Wall Street Bets or Reddit. This channel is simply looking at the SAME STOCKS that are being discussed on Wall Street Bets. Primarily this channel focuses on Game Stop GME, AMC, and Black Berry as well as other stocks that are Heavily Shorted by Hedge Funds. Hedge Funds often take large short positions, borrowing stocks they don't own and selling them in hopes of buying them back at a much lower price. Sometimes their aim is to drive the stock price to zero. When Hedge Funds make a mistake in their short bet, it drives the stock price of the shorted stock MUCH HIGHER. This channel is highlighting these specific stocks. It is similar in many ways to our Short Squeeze channel, but focuses on the main stocks in discussion on Wall street Bets.


Social Sentiment

Our Buzz channel pulls in the data from BUZZ and MOON ETFs which use NLP to scan social media for sentiment information on stocks. BUZZ contains the top 75 positively talked about large cap stocks where MOON contains the top 50 small cap positive stocks.
