What are Your Favorite Stock Tools and Services?

With the market on a roll it made me think about the investment tools and services I use to be successful. Are they really the best? I couldn't help but wonder, what tools do you use?

So I would love for you to read through my list, Tools of the Trade - How I Invest (2012 Edition), and then email me (Email subscribers just click reply!) or leave a comment on this post including the services you utilize yourself.

Your list can include newsletters, websites, blogs, brokers, subscriptions services, anything. If it helps you make money in the market, then I would love to know what it is! Also, feel free to keep it short and sweet just listing names, you don't have to go through the trouble I did on my post.

For example, my favorite trade platform is thinkorswim by TD Ameritrade:

With your responses I can then put together a great post highlighting my findings. It'll be great.

Thank you in advance for your participation. I hope this bull market is treating your portfolio well and I look forward to hearing from you!

    I really like to use MACD divergence and swing trading on 60 minute time frames. I like to use the MACD divergence to identify trend reversals on the 60min chart, and then i trade the pullbacks until I see another MACD divergence indicating a top or bottom and a new trend direction.
