Is there a place where you can find information on brand new stock listings to invest in or those that will soon become available on the market?

p.s. - happy thanksgiving!

sec.gov msnmoney pinksheets.com

All companies must file to the SEC and are available online at http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml

also you could use
http://moneycentral.hoovers.com/busi...sn-index.xhtml
its msn money. its nice. gives new ipo filings, stock that have priced but not yet gone public, and stocks that have recent gone public.

if you are looking for new pennies and uplistings for penny stocks try
pinksheets.com its a great website for all the new over-the-counter tiers.

there are also many sites which you can pay for and give you analysis and such. but isnt that why people come here
i have a subscription to wall street journal.com that i got through my school and they have a great one like that.

if anyone has a better way let me know.

http://www.pinksheets.com/pink/index.jsp

on the front page has a list of "Newly trading", including recently delisted as well as freshly listed. Personally, what I do is go to the link above, click "OTC Company Search", and click "Download All". That will give you a complete, up to date list of OTC/OTCBB stocks in Excel format. From there, you can edit it down and only keep a list of the symbols to input into your scanner, etc. I attempt to get a fresh list 2-3 times a week to keep my scanner updated. Hope this helps

Sure. If you use TD Ameritrade's StrategyDesk application, I can give you detailed instructions to import the symbol list into your scanner. Any other trading application, you're on your own

How do you import the excel file into StrategyDesk?
post #8 of 14
sorry for the delayed response.. forgot about this thread
So, go to pinksheets.com and click OTC Company Search (http://pinksheets.com/pink/companysearch/index.jsp).

I typically check the "Pink Quote/OTCBB, OTCBB Only, Pink Sheets Current, Pink Sheets Limited, and Pink Sheets No Information" boxes, click find securities.

then on the right underneath "Download All OTC Securities Data" is a "Download Data" button. Click the Download Data button (unless you want ALL data, including the grey sheets and otcqx)

Now open that excel file, click the top left column so it highlights the symbols. Copy/Paste that into a new blank excel document, so now you should have a list of all symbols. Delete the header at the top that says "Symbols" or whatever. Highlight the entire row again, go to data --> sort, hit OK.

Now you should have an alphabetized list of all of the PK and BB stocks in a column. From there, simply go file-->save as. From the drop-down list, select Text (Tab delimited)

Now you're going to want to save it in your TD Ameritrade's Strategy Desk "Symbols" folder. For me (and by default), this is located at "\Program Files\TD AMERITRADE\StrategyDesk\Symbols". Save the list as whatever you want to name it .sym. Make sure you name it with .sym at the end.. for me, I call it "OTC & OTCBB.sym"

Finally, go into your StrategyDesk L1 Screener, click Screener, Edit Screener. Delete everything in the current symbol list at the top of that box, click "Symbol Lists..." and select your new .Sym file.

Viola

I update mine every day now. Once you get the process down, it only takes a few seconds at the beginning of every day, and you're always up to date on symbol changes, new listings, delistings, etc.

Thanks Brutay

You wouldn't happen to know of a site that I would be able to download any of the exchanges without logging in? I found eoddata.com but in order to download the lists you must log in and I'm making a batch script to just download the lists automatically and logging in is not an option with that.

Thanks

quick question...and awesome info btw brutay!

how easy is it for you guys to unload your shares?
for kicks a few months back i bought some jnipe at .0003 or something of that nature.
i set a sell at .0004. i would watch the graphs sit at my sell but my order would never execute. is it first come, first serve? or did it mean no one wanted my 5 mil shares at ask price?
