I thought I would share with you what my broker terminal looks like. The screen below is a direct feed provided by Reuters through their BridgeChannel software. In the morning this is the first thing I load up on my terminal at work to survey where the market is going to open and to survey what’s been happening in the overnight markets, etc. The software is very versatile and can provide more data and types of analyses than you can imagine (I still don’t think I’ve seen every screen). All data is provided in real time.
The particular screen shot I took shows a chart on BCE. The drop-down menus on the left can be expanded and can bring up screens such as earnings estimates, mutual fund ownership of the security in question, option prices, RSI spreads, pre-market activity… even the price! :)
This is only one of about 44 different programs I use on a regular basis for research, analysis, adminstration, order entry, etc. And each one has a password… ugh!
