The home page of Finviz provides visitors with a wealth of market information in a very condensed format. Visitors can quickly see what the market is doing that day, as well as instantly see which stocks are moving, have news out or are at important technical levels.

Figure 1: Finviz Home Page - Stock Information
Figure 1 shows the top portion of the Finviz home page, which is focused on stocks. The data shown includes the major averages as well market information such as the number of stocks at 52-week highs and lows, number of advancing and declining stocks, and the number of stocks above or below major moving averages.

Visitors also see a list of stocks which meet certain criteria such as top gainers/losers, new high/low, overbought/oversold, unusual volume, most volatile, most active upgrades, downgrades, earnings and insider buying/selling.

Further down the page, technical analysis is highlighted along with stocks that are near technical levels or within a chart pattern. This allows visitors to quickly see, for instance, if there are any stocks close to a major support level, or trading within a triangle formation. Also in this area are recent news headlines along with a list of stocks affected by news. (For related reading, see The Pioneers Of Technical Analysis.)

Figure 2. Finviz Home Page - Data and Other Markets
The lower portion of the Finviz home page shows the economic data due out that day, upcoming earnings releases, insider transactions, as well a summary of futures, forex and bond performance.

While the home page provides a lot of market information, traders may wish to dig deeper and find particular stocks that suit their needs. For this, the analysis tools can be used.
