Multi-window layouts

You can display up to 120 days of intraday data on a ShareScope chart using a wide range of period lengths (e.g. 1 minute, 1 hour, 4 hours). Additionally, you can scroll back through over five years of intraday history looking at support/resistance levels and looking for reliable patterns.

  • Multiple charts for different trades (a dashboard).
  • Multiple charts with different time frames, bar sizes and/or analytics for the same trade.
  • Charts and news linked to your portfolio of open positions or watchlist.
  • Filters looking for new trading opportunities.

Create as many or as few layouts as you need and switch between them with a click of the mouse. ShareScope comes with a range of default layouts but you can customise any of these or create new ones. You have complete control over the colour of charts and tables.

Multi-monitor support

ShareScope is just as happy working across multiple monitors - enabling you group specific activities on different screens.

Premium charting tools

ShareScope's comprehensive range of chart types, indicators and analytics makes it perfect for the trader who wants to experiment with different strategies and use multiple setups to find the most convincing trading opportunities.

As you read articles or books, watch videos or attend seminars, you'll find that you can test out the same techniques in ShareScope.

You can annotate charts with ease and set alarms on the lines you draw with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Scan through charts quickly

Sifting through the markets for trading ideas should take minutes - not hours. That's what computers are for, isn't it? But try looking through hundreds of charts on a website and you'll soon run out of patience. And once that happens, you'll start making bad decisions. With ShareScope, you can scan through charts with a single click of the mouse. Click, click, click - chart, chart, chart. If you find a chart you like the look of, apply different chart styles with a single click of the mouse. Click, click, click - candles, point & figure, Ichimoku, or whichever indicators you use to find supporting signals. You'll find you can scan through entire lists - e.g. FOREX - in minutes.

Fast search

To find a new instrument in ShareScope, simply start typing the name or identifier on your keyboard. ShareScope will automatically start displaying matching instruments.

Looking at RIO in level 2 and want to switch to BHP Billiton? Just start typing "b h p ..." or "b l t..." - you get the picture. Faster search, faster trading.

Wide range of markets

ShareScope includes a broad range of tradable markets including UK and US equities, global indices, over 140 currency pairs (including Bitcoin and Etherium) and selected commodities.

Note that some markets (European equities & commodities) are delayed in ShareScope Plus and Pro. All data is included in your subscription and there is no limit on the number of symbols you can view at a time.

Compare the data available in each version of ShareScope.

Premium LSE Level 2

LSE Level 2 is provided free in ShareScope Pro and is an optional extra in ShareScope Plus (What is Level 2?).

Level 2 in ShareScope offers the following benefits:

  • Extremely reliable
  • Display multiple level 2 windows on the same layout
  • Link chart, news and watchlists to each Level 2 screen
  • Enhanced Level 2 screen with bonus features

Use filters to find the best trades

Imagine that whenever you switch ShareScope on, a shortlist of potential trades - based on your favourite trading signals - is waiting for you. You can focus on picking the most compelling opportunities in the list and get trading fast.

This is how ShareScope's powerful Data Mining (filtering) works. You tell ShareScope which signals to find and it will display the results instantly. You can fine-tune filters on the fly with immediate results. And you'll never need to worry that you might be missing better opportunities elsewhere.

This example filter finds FTSE All-Share stocks exhibiting a new bullish candlestick pattern.

News for traders

If you trade news, ShareScope makes it easy for you home in on the news stories you want to trade. You can filter the Dow Jones Newswires feed for specific companies, keywords or news codes. Add windows to your layouts which deliver the news stories you are filtering for so you can trade as soon as they appear.

ShareScope Pro comes with the enhanced Dow Jones Newswires UK Markets Report - a professional-quality news service - which includes trader headlines. These one-liners are published rapidly as soon as a company announces its results giving you near-immediate access to the headlines - and the ability to trade before other market participants.

Heatmaps

Heatmaps are great way to find where the action is. You can create heatmaps for any list (e.g. Forex, FTSE 100 or a watchlist) and sort by name or % change. In the example here, the heatmap is sorted by % change (mid to close) showing you instantly the highest risers and fallers on the day. ShareScope's heatmaps re-sort automatically.
