ShareScope has been the "go-to" investment software for savvy investors and traders for 15 years. Its comprehensive coverage of both financial data and charting tools makes it perfect for the investor who also spread bets (trades).

There are three models of ShareScope:

  • ShareScope Gold  data updated once a day, easy-to-use single window view
  • ShareScope Plus  streaming data delayed by 15 minutes; multi-window layouts
  • ShareScope Pro  live streaming data and news; LSE level 2; multi-window layouts

Multi-window layouts

If you like to customise your workspace, you'll love ShareScope Plus & Pro. Create multi-window layouts to display the information you are most interested in. For example:

  • Display charts for all your active trades, or
  • Display your portfolio with linked windows showing chart, news, results and broker forecasts for the highlighted stock.
  • Create multiple layouts to cater for all your investment or trading tasks. ShareScope comes with a range of default layouts but you can customise any of these or create new ones. Switch between layouts with a click of the mouse.

Superb charting tools for serious traders

ShareScope's wide range of chart types and analytics enable you to experiment with different strategies. As you read articles or books, or attend seminars, you'll find you can apply the same techniques in ShareScope.

You can add lines, shapes and text to chart with ease. And setting an alarm on a support or resistance line takes just three clicks of the mouse.

See the full list of charting tools available in ShareScope.

Scan through charts quickly

Sifting through the markets for trading ideas should take minutes - not hours. That's what computers are for, isn't it? But try looking through hundreds of charts on a website and you'll soon run out of patience. And once that happens, you'll start making bad decisions. With ShareScope, you can scan through charts with a single click of the mouse. Click, click, click - chart, chart, chart. If you find a chart you like the look of, apply different chart styles with a single click of the mouse. Click, click, click - candles, point & figure, Ichimoku, or whichever indicators you use to find supporting signals. You'll find you can scan through entire lists - e.g. FOREX - in minutes.

ShareScope covers all your investment and trading activities

Whether you are an investor or trader, you'll find what you are looking for in the 60,000 instruments included as standard in ShareScope.

Additionally, a broad set of global market and economic data enables you to monitor the macroeconomic environment.

Compare the data available in each version of ShareScope.

Use filters to find trading opportunities fast

You can find trading ideas even quicker than this. Imagine that whenever you switch ShareScope on, a shortlist of potential trades - based on your favourite trading signals - is waiting for you. You can focus on picking the most compelling opportunities in the list and get trading fast.

This is how ShareScope's powerful Data Mining (filtering) works. You tell ShareScope which signals to find and it will display the results instantly. You can fine tune filters on the fly with immediate results. And you'll never need to worry that you might be missing better opportunities elsewhere.

This example filter finds charts that have exhibited a bullish candlestick pattern in the last two days.

Comprehensive portfolio management tools

A vital component of successful investing is wealth preservation - limiting your losses by selling individual investments or asset classes if sentiment becomes negative.

But you'll also want to know if your investments are at bargain valuations - so you can decide whether or not to buy some more. The ability to monitor the health of individual holdings easily is therefore of paramount importance.
