I have looked around and I cannot find any easy to use tick charts with 5-10 sec interval. However, you do not need tick charts to be a successful day trader. In fact, tick charts are used mostly for high-frequency trading and humans do not have any advantage in trading these ultra-small timeframes. Here are some useful easy to read and interactive charts for you!
I find Yahoo finance to be one of the most helpful tools for not only charts in real time, but also various useful financial information including the income statement and balance sheet for the companies’ historical performance. It is a very versatile tool that provides you with all the necessary information to succeed in stock investments.
Free Stock Charts, Stock Quotes, and Trade Ideas is another great interactive chart that is easy to read. This chart also has one-minute intervals and that should be adequate for a day trader.
If you are looking for more detailed information and analysis, I recommend Capital IQ. It does require a subscription, but many investment managers and private equity funds utilize this tool. This platform has financial info for over 60000 public companies and over 2 million private firms. Capital IQ gives its users the ability to gain broad market understanding through the use of its market snapshot, industry surveys, sub-industry reviews and general economic insights. All of these features combine to create a robust learning platform that empowers financial professionals to make sound decisions.
If you are looking for a real-time report of all economic events and their impact on the stock market, BetterTrader is a platform that utilizes machine learning to take real-time economic news (i.e change in fed funds rate) and predict the best course of action for users in the future according to historical data and past events. This platform keeps you up to date in the world of economics and finance and provides valuable insight into profitable choices.
If you are looking for a platform to trade stocks for beginners, I recommend Robinhood. It does not charge stock trading interactions so you can make an unlimited amount of trades (not in one day). It just recently introduced options trading to its platform, so it’s a great way to be introduced to stock trading.
