Fundamentals research is a core strategy for many traders and the thinkorswim platform makes it easy for traders to browse research in a time-efficient manner
Fundamentals research is a core strategy for many traders, but it can also be a daunting and time-consuming task. Looking for a helpful tool to help reduce the time needed for research? Meet the Fundamentals section in the thinkorswim® platform by TD Ameritrade.
The Fundamentals section, located in the Analyze tab, makes it easy for traders to browse executive summaries within the trading platform, rather than having to go to several sources like research and annual reports. The tab also aggregates all of the key fundamentals that drive a company’s stock up or down so traders can more confidently make a stock investment that is potentially profitable over time. If you’d still like the ability to browse third-party research reports, that’s also possible from the tab.
Here's a peek into what you can learn within the Fundamentals tab:
