Traders are often on the lookout for “breakout stocks". These are stocks where prices are showing a sharp upward move.
The Breakout Stocks scanner
The methodology that we use, is the 5-day range. When a stock moves above its 5-day range by one standard deviation, it gets displayed on the scanner.
Traders also look out for increased volume flows. The industry term would be “unusual volume", “high relative volume (RVol)" or “volume spike".
Elevated volume flows typically signal that there is something going on today, or that the stock “is in play" today.
The Unusual Volume Stocks scan identifies stocks with increased trading activity today.
