Stocks On The Move is a dynamic stock screen that updates throughout the trading day, highlighting stocks that are moving up or down in heavy trading volume compared to their average levels. Stocks must meet minimum price, volume and fundamental requirements.
Moves in heavy volume are significant and often provide trading opportunities. Heavy volume shows that institutional investors are intense buyers or sellers. The stock may be breaking out to a new high, an ideal time to buy during a market uptrend. Or it could be undercutting a key moving average such as the 50-day or 200-day line and triggering a sell signal. Be sure to look at a stock's chart on its Quote page.
