Market Meter is another amazing tool on Fyers One. It is a more customizable version of heat maps and it encompasses far more information to help you in technical analysis. Heat maps provide you quick actionable information on how exactly the stock markets are moving by observing Index components of Nifty or other indices on NSE.
Market Meter is useful if you want to look beyond the information available in heat maps and guess what, its actionable information that you can use to trade immediately. Traders will find this extremely useful to toggle through the different available search filters and options that can reveal opportunities and help you do quick stock research.
Let’s go through this step by step:
You will have to select “Market Meter” from the “Tools” section in the main menu.
When you arrive at the tool, you can choose from different industry groups of the economy. We have encompassed over 18 different sectors of the Indian Economy.
Further, you could select based on the NSE sectors. All the major indices have been covered here. The screen auto adjusts and you can scroll down to see all the listed scrips within the index. As you can see, you can choose from:
• Nifty 50
• Nifty Small 100
• Nifty FMCG
• Nifty Auto
• Nifty Bank / Bank Nifty etc.
In all, you can choose from over 30 different indices. Now, notice how the scrips are colour coded to denote the underlying change in price / performance. This function is similar to a heat map. But instead of displaying it in a non-uniform dynamic format, Market Meter is simple and is designed for those who want to look a few steps beyond and plan their trading.
Okay, so let’s say we choose Nifty 50 for this example. We can view stocks performance based on the following criteria:
• % Change in price
• Last Traded Price
• PE Ratio of stocks
• Market Capitalization
• 1 year rolling returns in (%)
• YTD returns in (%)
• Range of stocks
• Total Traded volumes
• Total Turnover
Such information can be very useful to strategically plan your technical analysis and to trade professionally. Retail traders in the Indian stock market need to have such data to be able to maintain a sane approach. So far in online trading, such technical analysis features have not been available in other trading platforms.
You can arrange the flow of the window from:
• Left to Right
• Top Down
• Right to Left
• Bottom Up
You could also sort the data based on the ascending or descending order. Basically, it’s made to suit the custom preferences of traders.
Range – Is the difference between the high and the low of stocks. This feature shows you how much a stock has moved during the day. It can be used to check the feasibility of a trade.
Let’s say you want to trade in volatile stocks and you’re not sure which one to choose. In such a situation, if you use the range feature on Fyers One, you can filter stocks based on any index and then choose the ones which are most volatile within a sector. Okay, so what if you didn’t have this feature? You could be trading in the dark. This can help you find better opportunities as the information is readily available for analysis.
At Fyers, we want traders to analyse data, not accumulate it. That’s our job, leave it to us. Save time and do what’s most needed to turn profits. Time is as precious as money, if not more. If you have any questions, ask us in the comments section below.
