Tackle Today: Heat Maps

October 6, 2020

By | No Comments

A simple but powerful tool


During a trader’s daily routine, there are many charts and tools that are used to help us understand what is happening in the market so that we can make more informed decisions.  Some analysis can be complex, and others simple, yet powerful

A Heat Map is a favorite amongst many traders.  In a quick visual analysis, a trader can identify which stocks are performing bullish and bearish on a given time frame.  If you learn to use Heat maps, they can speed up your daily routine while they provide you with valuable information about the markets. 

If you have not learned to use Heat Maps yet, you should start by adding them into your top down analysis.  After you look at the overall market charts, take a quick peak at a Heat Map on the S&P 500 to measure the 1-day performance of the market.  It will give you a quick glimpse into the internal performance of the index.

If you are a veteran of using Heat Maps, consider learning how to use some of the features, like different time frames, P/E ratios, Earnings Date performance and more.  There is more functionality than most people know.
