Does RT have an inbuilt Screener?

Question

Hi, sorry, struggling to find any definitive info on this.

 

I can no longer tolerate the the search frustration to find suitable instruments using the Retail Platform.

What are the main advantages of ProRealTime over the Retail Platform?  Does it have a screener to search for Price Range, Gappers etc.?

 

Thanks.

I'm confused @Caseynotes

Is PRT a 3rd party platform, where IG is simply the Broker?

yes but it's highly intergrated as it's a special version of PRT written specifically for IG.

Is it safe to assume that ALL Broker Retail Platforms Don't include a dedicated Filter?

Is it widely understood that in order to Trade effectively, you will also need a Screener, not necessarily provided by your Broker?

I think I need to go back to the start for a pre-requisite checklist of Tools and News functions.  I've attacked this entirely in the wrong way.  Im disappointed in myself that I've been going since February and still not figured this out.

Is it rude of me to ask you @Caseynotes what you are using?

Do you work for IG?

Some brokers have them, most of the smaller ones won't, specialist pay for screener web sites should have better ones, not sure why you should think you should have 'got it' in just a few months.

I don't use one because I don't need one because I'm not looking for needles in haystacks 🙂 and no I don't work for IG, I only come on here because it routinely gives me something to laugh at.

I seem to have a recurring issue where whatever is posted above only shows as a square with a black top and bottom.

    • Thanks for the feedback.  I currently use TV for my technical analysis, as the features available on IG platform are not quite on par. The fundamental data functionality is good if you are looking / using at a micro level, but not quite what I'm after.  Providers I had in mind were the likes of Stockopedia, MorningStar premium etc. - something that can a consolidated view in an easily digestable / usable manner.   
    • If in the UK you can buy physical silver (coins or bars) from the royal mint or royal mint authorised dealers. Just search the internet. You probably want to buy whatever is captial gains tax exempt (I think silver britannias are). Shop around for the best price and also be careful about VAT as I think you may have to pay that on some purchases and not on others . Of course when you buy physical silver in UK as an investment you also have to consider what GBP/ USD is up to as any change in  exchange rate in future will affect your return (as silver is priced in USD). If you don't want physical then you could buy shares in a silver ETF (eg. SSLN) which is  backed by physical metal or if you want to spread bet it you could buy spot silver. It all depends why you want to buy it. If just as an investment then you get a better return buying etf or spread betting (easier to cash in when you want to and potentially less hassles with tax). If you are worried the banking system will freeze up and you can't get money out at some point in the future ( possibly not likely but you can never rule it out) then it's physical - stored outside the banking system either with a company or stored somewhere by yourself. I'm not an expert on this but have just read a bit about it lately as lots of articles suggesting silver will go higher over the next months / year.  
    • I don't know. But there is good profit taking.
