Motley Fool Scorecard
The Motley Fool offers a free scorecard to all visitors on our site, available at scorecard.fool.com. If you are using a screenreader, this scorecard is best accessed on a Mac, using Safari and VoiceOver. For users on a PC, The Motley Fool recommends Firefox or Chrome.
The Motley Fool Scorecard consists of five pages:
- Dashboard, with high level returns information on the scorecard you are looking at, and 6 additional sections: Movers (gainers and losers on the day), Trade alerts in stocks you follow, headlines from stocks you follow, scorecards (all of the scorecards associated with your account), and Markets (daily returns for various indexes).
- Stocks, which is a table of all of the stocks you watch or own with various position level metrics. The table can be edited using the “Edit this tab” button to change the data points within it.
- When navigating the Stocks table with a screenreader, we recommend using the T key to navigate directly to the table, and then hitting Tab to enter Forms mode. This will allow you to move around the table using the arrow keys. Hitting Esc will exit Forms mode.
- Each row in the table has an actions command as the last column in the row. This will allow you to edit, buy more of, and sell a stock in your scorecard. The actions button is only available in Forms mode.
- News contains news, trade alerts, and boards posts for all stocks in your scorecard
- Settings lets you manage your default settings, edit and delete scorecards, and add scorecards. Many users like to change their settings so they always start on a specific page, like the Dashboard, or Stocks.
- Help has the answers to several frequently asked questions related to the calculations behind the scorecard and the returns displayed.
