Site Review: StockTwits Desktop – Your Personal Investment Community
I’ve mentioned StockTwits many times in the past on my blog. It is certainly a fast growing community featuring suite of investors offering valuable stock discussions every day, live. Now StockTwits has recently launched a newly developed tool more powerful than ever, empowering investors with a vast amount of information at their fingertips.
Desktop users are able to create or join individual groups that are topic specific, some examples include groups centered on a specific trading style or focus. Group members are able to send private messages directly to the group or to multiple groups that don’t appear in the rest of the stream.
Desktop users may block people from their stream; this gives members full control over stream customization.
Desktop users can create a stream from an RSS feed. Simply copy and paste the RSS url from any site and receive the updates right in StockTwits Desktop.
Multiple Tabs and Moveable Streams
Stocktwits Desktop offers users the ability to customize their layout. Streams can be moved around and ordered with a simple drag and drop.
Stay tuned to all your favorite StockTwits TV shows with the built in video player. Watch Alphatrends, UpsideTrader, Investing with Options, and all of our programming live, while you read Real-time messages from the StockTwits community. Users will find the full schedule of programming it listed right in the application.
StockTwits Desktop has a built in web browser, so users can click links and view pages without ever having to leave the application! If you prefer to open the link in your own browser, we’ve provided a button for that, as well. We’ve also provided a button to simplify sharing links.
If you haven’t tried the application, definitely give it try. They’ve really done a good job asking themselves “what are we missing in our trading lives?” and addressed them beautifully. Great design, great interface, great features, and above all, great community. Whether you’re a day trader or a long-term trader, there’s something you can get out of this application.
