Often, the surges highlighted on an alert list will not be particularly attractive to a trader because the stock's pattern will be compromised by nearby overhead resistance. However, the alerts sometimes present an opportunity to get in at the beginning of a nice move. A stock's closing price relative to the day's price action and overall price pattern (and the percentage change in volume for the day) are important when the stock has had a price surge, gap or spike. These lists are presented so that you can evaluate the situation for yourself.
Individual Stock Alerts (Price Surges)
The lists of surging stocks focus on 1-day surges and are found by scanning a database of more than 8000 stocks. The stocks on our lists have all experienced some unusual action. The lists are updated daily. A daily review of the charts of stocks on the lists can enable a subscriber to observe setup configurations evolving, and maybe also discover stocks that have recently started out on new trends, stocks breaking out of a consolidation pattern, or stocks that have had unusual market activity for some other reason. We suggest that subscribers review the charts of these stocks to see if they are of sufficient interest to warrant purchase or inclusion on a "watch list." One reason for including a stock on your watch list is so you can monitor it while waiting for a good entry point. For example, you might wait for a pullback to a rising trendline. You might also wait for some sign that the trendline is holding or that the stock is responding to it in a positive way. Waiting for such a pullback can also help you optimize your stop-loss placement. By buying when the price is at the trendline, the buy price is then only slightly above support. Therefore, when the stop loss is placed a little below the expected support (the trendline), any decline that triggers the stop will be a meaningful decline because support could not stop the decline, but the decline that triggers the sell order will also be relatively small (and so will any loss if the unexpected happens).
A price increase of 1% combined with a 50% volume decrease may not be particularly noteworthy (but it could be very noteworthy). However, a price increase of 2% combined with a 50% increase in volume will definitely generate some interest. The numbers reported are percent changes for price and volume respectively. For example, a reading of 23 in the "Vol Change %" column would mean that volume surged 23%. The column headings are closing price, % change in price (Price Change %), 1-day percent change in volume (Vol Change %), and 25-day momentum (Mom). Subscribers get a list of up to 90 stocks that have had both a price increase of 2% or more and a 50% or more increase in volume at the same time. The subscriber lists are arranged in rank order based on the magnitude of the price surge for each stock so that the stocks that have had the greatest price surge are at the top of the list.
The Following List
Each entry on the following list has been randomly selected from the subscriber list. Therefore, it is possible that some of the highest ranked stocks on the subscriber list will be included on the following list. Because each of the following 15 stocks is selected independently of the entries in other rows, they are not in rank order. A lower-ranked stock may be above a higher-ranked stock (the subscriber list is in rank order). The random selection process also makes it possible that there will be duplicate entries, especially if there are only a few stocks in the primary list (generally, the shorter the list, the more often the repeats). [Please review the note below the table at least once.]
