V14.14 (580-583): Product Review:Telescan Investor's Platform
Committed as I am to trading technically, it's still tempting to feed on fundamental information, remembering the popular old saw, "Find trades fundamentally, enter them technically." (Never mind that when fundamentals finally do evince themselves, technical indicators will be tripped.) More likely, it's valuable to be able to winnow down the thousands of trading candidates to those deserving special attention.
As it happens, Telescan's search facilities are so powerful that winnowing is hardly necessary. Telescan can routinely search everything in its databases and get the job done in seconds. Candidates identified can then be scoped out with in-depth fundamental reporting supplemented by a fair amount of technical analysis, all within one platform. To get an idea of how this works, I signed on to Telescan in early December 1995.
