Unfair Advantage provides a quick preview of tomorrow's financial newspaper in an unabridged form. Many newspapers show stock and futures prices for the prior day in a cryptic last-price/net-change form, leaving out the open, high, low and other substantive fields. CSI not only provides all of the coverage, but also adds in the earnings per share, the net change from yesterday, the open, high, low, and volume, and a six-month chart of historical progress on every listed future or security. All stocks are ranked by sector and by industry, by yield and by per-share earnings over the past 12 months. The website also allows you to capture this wealth of information on correlated market pairs with little or no waiting.
This feature is tied to the website to lessen waiting time and reduce the computing load on individual customers' computers.
The Online Newspaper is accessed in either of two ways:
1) Through CSI's website following a daily update with UA, as described here.
2) By selecting "Read Tomorrow's Newspaper" from UA's Trading Tools menu.
When news headlines display, scroll down past the headlines to a prompt that says "Click Here to Display the Online Newspaper."
