There is no such website where you can find good bargain and value stocks! You could use screeners to identify such stocks but there is no guarantee that it will be a good investment.

From you post I am a bit unclear on whether you are looking to value invest or trade these stocks?

I would suggest devising a plan where you outline your clear objectives and how you intend to meet those objectives. State what your strategy will be and if it value investing then how you intend to execute your strategy to meet your objectives. 

Have you read 'The Intelligent Investor' by Benjamin Graham? If not then you may want to consider it. 

You could look at:

  • Total debt to current asset ratios
  • Current ratio (current assets divided by current liablities)
  • Price to earnings per share - PE ratios
  • Price to book value - P/BV ratios
  • Companies paying dividends

This hopefully will start you thinking but the more work you put in now and the more research you conduct yourself the better chance you will give yourself of building a strong foundation of knowledge to work from.

Hi @Pjoshi, I would be wary of sites that simply pump certain stocks, there is often an ulterior motive. 

Good advice from @TrendFollower though there are sites that do screen for stocks that have been oversold and might be considered a bargain but you would have to weed out those that were oversold for good reason. 

Have a look at these two sites, they look to be free to register for lists of companies that have popped up on various screeners and check through TF's list above to see if they really are a bargain, I would experiment on demo for a while before thinking of risking any real money.

Also check out @rimmy2000 post on using the IG screener.

Let us know how you get on.

I also really like stockopedia.com altho there is a price tag with it. 

If I’m honest I don’t know why IG don’t go down an acquisition route for something like that.

    • The vote has little significance if there will be an extension given if they vote no.  They can keep this up indefinitely.
    • Still not clear how the vote will go tomorrow, will depend on Labour MPs, snap poll suggests general population support it. Merkel ready to offer an extension if vote no but Boris seems unlikely to accept. Nick Boles MP  @NickBoles  "All the Benn Act does is oblige the PM to request an extension if he has not got his deal approved by the end of tomorrow. On its own an extension request cannot stop a No Deal Brexit on 31 Oct. The only certain way to stop No Deal is to vote for the deal."
    • Using ProRealTime at the moment But also though first using the API. The backtest functionality of PRT is not too bad though, as you can run through variables up until 10,000 combinations. Currently running through different combinations of TP, SL and entry points
