Fast BetaTM

See the market in a whole new light. Maybe you’ve heard that before. But Fast Beta really shines. This proprietary TD Ameritrade study, where more recent pricing data has a greater impact than older pricing data, is especially useful when analyzing securities that become more volatile or break out of historical trends.


Finding the perfect technical indicator can be challenging to say the least. With thinkScript, you can manipulate existing charts and studies. Or create your own and even name them after yourself. The power of analytics is in your hands now.

This kind of hacking won’t land you behind bars. But it will help you crack the hacking code to find the securities you want. Scan for stocks and options meeting your criteria, and easily filter out the ones that don’t.

Pairs trading
