If you're looking to quickly get started investing in the U.S., the simplest way may be to stick with what you already know.
If there are investing strategies you are already comfortable with, they may be easily applied to the U.S. markets.
Perhaps you prefer to screen for stocks nearing price highs, expecting a pullback.
Or perhaps you keep an eye on dividend growth, looking for stocks poised to grow while paying dividends.
For many of these types of common strategies, pre-defined screeners can help you quickly find potential candidates. And for Schwab traders, you can even customize them to fit your precise needs.
After logging in and navigating to screeners, you'll see a list of the most popular predefined screens.
Once you make a selection, you’ll see a list of candidates that fit the pre-defined criteria.
To further customize your search, you can adjust the criteria…
…or add additional screens.
Now you can select up to 5 companies to directly compare. As you scroll down you can easily see important fundamental and technical information for each side-by-side.
Then you can dive in to learn more about an individual company, and easily place your trade.
