Broker Ratings & Recommendations object downloads several metrics about broker recommendations for US stocks.

Database Name: "Broker_Rating"

Fields:
Avg_Broker_Rec: Current average broker recommendations for the specified stock.

#Brokers_Rating: Number of brokers that provided a recommendation on the stock.

#Ratings_Strong_Buy/Buy: The number of brokers that rated the stock as a strong or moderate buy.

%Rating_Strong_Buy/Buy: The percentage of brokers that recommended the stock as a strong or moderate buy.

#Rating_Hold: The number of brokers that rated the stock as hold.

%Rating_Hold: The percentage of brokers that rated the stock as hold.

#Rating_Strong_Sell/Sell: The number of brokers that rated the stock as a strong or moderate sell.

%Rating_Strong_Sell/Sell: The percentage of brokers that recommended the stock as a strong or moderate sell.

%Rating_Chg: The percent change during the last four weeks in the average broker recommendation.

Ind_Rank: The industry rank of the selected stock. Industries are ranked based on the average broker recommendation of each company belonging to this industry. A low number means that brokers and analysts expect that the industry outperform the market.

Rank_in_Ind: The rank of the selected stock within its industry based on the stock average recommendation compared to the average brokerage recommendations of each stock in the industry.

Chg_Avg_Rec: This is the difference between the current average broker recommendation minus the last week average recommendations.

#Rating_Upgrades: The number of brokers that upgraded the stock during the last week.

#Rating_Downgrades: The number of brokers that downgraded the stock during the last week.

%Rating_Upgrades: The percentage of brokers that upgraded the stock during the last week.

%Rating_Downgrades: The percentage of brokers that downgraded the stock during the last week.


Here are the recommendation values:
1 = Strong Buy
2 = Buy
3 = Hold
4 = Sell
5 = Strong Sell

You can calculate the "Rank in Industry" and "Industry Rank" using the composite function.
Here is how to compute the "Rank in Industry":
Comp(GetData("broker_rating", "avg_broker_rec", LastData), "rank", industry())

"GetData" retrieves the average broker recommendation from the database, while "Comp" calculates stocks' rank based on this data and by grouping stocks using the value returned by the "industry()" function.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
