How to search for a trading item

Updated on 2010-09-07

Trading objects are of great help. Whether you want to download quotes, fundamental data, use a specific trading indicator or search for a profitable trading system, you can find everything you need in the QuantShare sharing server. We can also call it the QuantShare Trading Objects Store.

Hundreds of trading objects
Currently, our members have shared more than 500 trading objects and every week more and more trading items are uploaded.

With the increase of the number of trading objects, it may become more difficult for users to find the trading object they are looking for and this is why our search page is complete and offers a lot of options to make objects' search very easy.

Type, Country, Market and Style
Trading objects are of different types. There are currently more than 10 object's types. The Download Object for example is an item that allows you to automatically download data from a website and adds it to your quotes or custom databases. The Custom Indicator is a trading indicator created in QuantShare and it can be used for example as a trading rule. The trading system object is an item that contains the trading rules and the strategy that will generate buy and sell signals.

In order to categorize trading objects, we have added three characteristics to each one of them: Country, Market, and Style. Each trading object must be assigned to one or several countries, one or several markets and one or several styles.
Here is an example:
Advance/Decline NYSE, Amex and NASDAQ issues is associated with the United States. It is an item that is related to the Stock Market and to Technical Analysis style.

How to search for a trading item
The search page contains several fields. You can select to search for all types of trading objects or you can just specify a specific object's type and then hit the search button. Also, you can specify the country, market and style of the objects you are interested in.
If you want a end-of-day data downloader for the French Stock Market, then simply select "Download Script" in the object's type field, France as a country, Stock Market in the Market field and then click on Search to display the trading objects that meet these criteria.

Another powerful feature is the ability to search by keywords. You can use simple keywords, keywords with quotes or a combination of both (keyword1 + "keyword2"). The first displayed results are those that contain the keywords in the title followed with results/items that contain the keywords in the object's description.

You can even have more search options by clicking on the "Display more options" link. You will then be able to search for trading items by other criteria including user ID, upload date, number of downloads, number of reviews, number of votes and average rate.
For example, you can search for trading objects that are shared by a specific user, trading objects that are downloaded more than 100 times or those that have been uploaded in the last month.

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.
