ETF Summary

The ETF Summary page provides detailed performance data and analysis from a variety of sources. To access the ETF Summary page, enter an ETF symbol into the Detailed Quote box in the top right corner of your screen from any page of your account.

An ETF quote and real-time performance chart are provided at the top of the ETF Summary page. Use the drop-down box provided under the Summary page chart to adjust the lower indicator (displayed below the main chart) from Volume EMA to MACD. All charts are set by default to include information for the current market day. Use the buttons below any chart to view performance for five days, six months, one year or five years.

You can embed any chart on the ETF Summary page into a different website environment including personal blogs or the Scottrade® Online Community. The ability to copy and insert charts into new locations allows you to provide visual aids while you discuss trading strategies and risks with other investors. To learn how to embed charts into a new location, read Embedding Charts.

Click the Advanced Charts button to access charts that can be customized to help you spot and identify trends. You can also access these advanced charts by clicking on the Charts tab above the main chart.

Below the chart is the strategy breakdown for the ETF and the Top 5 equities held by the fund. You can compare the Top 5 equities held by the fund by clicking the Compare these holdings together link below the table.

To the right of any ETF chart on the Summary page, detailed quote information is offered including the current bid, ask, expense ratio and market capitalization. Below the detailed quote information you can get free analyst reports. Scottrade provides S&P ETF reports and Second Opinion Weekly reports. S&P is a fundamental analyst report. Second Opinion Weekly is a technical analysis report.

You can easily view a quote, set an alert, add the ETF to your watch list or place a trade by using the buttons at the top of the page.
