After a quick log into your dashboard, you can find the “Global Top Stock Ideas” under the “Discover” tab. The AI-powered short and long ideas cover over 10,000 stocks from around the globe and are updated monthly. This feature is incredibly valuable for new investors who open their first trading account.

A beginner trader may have some idea of what sectors they’ll want to invest in, but not the particular companies. Users can filter the ideas through US vs. International stocks, then by market cap, and sector. The menu shows “Top Buys” and “Top Shorts” and in-depth company information is just a click away.

Stock Research and Highlights

Quantamize’s platform allows users to download in-depth research reports on a particular stock, called QuantShots. They reveal the stocks Q-Factor Score (Quantamize’s stock A-F grading system), alternative data analysis, technical analysis, and company financials.

Stock Model Portfolios

Users can access condensed qualitative portfolios optimized to fit personal investing objectives or purely for performance. Quantamize organizes Model Portfolios using the following; United States, International, Global, and Options, and are further divided by type (e.g. US Quality Value, China New Economy.)

Options Trades and Portfolios

Quantamize offers comprehensive options strategies – and takes into account the user’s risk level.  The platform and allows you to toggle your risk level from low to high, and presents Bullish, Bearish, Yield Enhancement, ETF & Macro, and a Portfolio Protection trade ideas.

The strategy will show the type (e.g. long call spread), recommended strikes, reference price, expiration, net credit, max payout, max loss, upside breakeven, next earning, and risk level, along with the Q-Factor Score Implied Volatility Metrics.

This may seem like a lot of data to process, but it doesn’t seem overwhelming due to the platform’s clean interface and hover-for-more-information functionality.

The Options Portfolios provide users with a basket of options and their respective Q-Folio metrics, including the Q-Folio Characteristics, that get into alternative and traditional data, as well as hypothetical performance.

The inclusion of Crypto Trading Signals, Crypto Research Reports, and Crypto Model Portfolios shows the platform’s commitment to cryptocurrency. And, that their information isn’t a ton of fluff. Instead, it’s packed with alternative data, heatmaps, and highlights. Even beginners can lose themselves in the wealth of information and come out of it a better cryptocurrency trader.

ETF Research

Quantamize built out an ETF investing section on the platform, mirroring the stock and cryptocurrency products, and is built on the power of AI and quantum computing.

It also comes with the ability to look up 3,000 ETFs across its database. Again, it’s complete with Smart Beta ETF Trading Signals which are broken down by sector, smart beta, and general regional or thematic categories.

Along with the Smart Beta ETF Trading Signals, the ETF research also features ETF AI Portfolios, and ETF Rankings and Q-Factor analysis.

New and advanced traders will love the ETF AI Smart Beta Scores and Ratings. They show an updated list of over 300 ETFs with a complete view of alternative and traditional data, including the true beta attribution of the ETFs the user buys.

And, once again, Quantamize’s hover-over-for-more-information works flawlessly. Users can learn more about Q-Factor data, as well as get additional information on a particular ETF.

Final Thoughts

There’s no doubt that artificial intelligence and alternative data have carved out a huge place for themselves in the world of trading research platforms. Some traders, including novices and professionals, have shied away from these practices and stuck with the traditional stock, ETF, cryptocurrency, and options data.

But, Quantamize proves that there’s value blending new practices with traditional data. It gives users access to almost 20,000 global stocks in the S&P global database and over 3,000 ETFs, along with making AI and alternative data accessible, easy-to-use, and, above all, actionable, at an economical price.
