thinkorswim has developed a new interface dedicated to researching the effects that earnings announcements have on securities and derivatives pricing
Earnings announcements are crunch time. Each quarter, publicly-traded companies are obliged to share fundamental information on the state of their business, most critically, on the earnings and revenue that the company produced. Securities sometimes, (but not always) make significant (or small) corrections upward (or downward) in reaction to these announcements which can mean opportunities (or risks) for a trader.
In the never-ending quest to provide you the best tools for the task at hand TD Ameritrade has developed an entirely new interface dedicated to researching the effects that earnings announcements can have on securities and derivatives pricing. Read on to learn all about it.
The Earnings tab in the thinkorswim® trading platform brings to one place all of the critical information needed to analyze the pricing and volatility movements of a security around its historical earnings events.
