Recently the %change on the discover tab shown next to each stock has changed from daily change to monthly change.
I’m not sure who directed the decision but personally I have been able to achieve much less gains since being able to see the daily change of every stock on 1 page was a very fast way to find ideal buying points for certain shares.
With thousands of stocks to look through it now takes hours to discover sharp drops in prices rather than minutes. I hear the change was to encourage long term investing, but the point still stands that buying on dips will always be more profitable.
I believe this change has quite dramatically disconnected users from the present (which is where all profit really lies), with no other alternative for easily discovering sharp price drops, i.e. threshold notification alerts or a stock price API for user analysis.
I firmly believe that an option of at least being able to select the duration used for the %change on the discover page should be provided, i.e. day/week/month, to allow faster analysis of the current state of the market for users, since currently it’s just too slow to do manually!
