Momentum Stock Scanner & Screen

We have a variety of scanners/filters on this site. See a list

Notice to visitors:  We have upgraded our free lists.  Volume surges and Momentum have been changed to consist of that were previously on the subscriber list rather than just below it. 

     Our algorithm finds high-momentum stocks.  Price momentum surges, especially if accompanied by volume surges often presage a significant move.  Stocks in a database of about 8,000 stocks are ranked by momentum.

Momentum is similar to price-rate-of-change.  The difference is that momentum is expressed usually as a ratio, and price-rate-of-change is expressed as a percent.  Both are "momentum" measurements.  We express the momentum as a percentage here because it is easier for most people to visualize percentages than ratios.         

It is often possible to catch a stock early in a sustained move by monitoring stocks that have undergone a recent momentum surge.  Our momentum scanner computes the 10-day momentum of each of thousands of stocks.  Remember that a high 10-day momentum figure does not necessarily mean a viable trend has begun.  There may be nearby overhead resistance to any additional upside movement.  If there is, you should either wait and see if the stock breaks through that resistance or look elsewhere.  Look at the stock's 3-year chart and it's 1-year chart to get a sense of the context for the recent momentum.  Is the stock accelerating after touching its rising trendline, breaking through its upper Bollinger band, bursting through the neckline of an inverted head-and-shoulders formation, or breaking through the upper resistance boundary of an ascending triangle?  Look for such things to validate that the momentum is probably the beginning of a significant move.  If you do not know what these formations are, learn what overhead resistance looks like.  Many people consider the lack of overhead resistance to be sufficient reason to purchase a high-momentum stock.

Extreme readings are more likely to be followed by a continuation of the upside movement.    Check a stock carefully before you buy it.  A momentum surge may result because of a possible takeover.  In such cases, a stock will usually gap up to a certain level then level off with little price change from then on (it goes relatively flat).  There might be another surge later or the stock may stay there for up to a few months and then plummet if the takeover collapses.  In short, the upside move may already be over.  We believe it is better to look for stocks that have not spiked up abruptly then traded flat after that, and that you make sure there is no nearby resistance overhanging the stock.  The bottom line is that stocks with the greatest momentum out of thousands of stocks probably have that momentum for a good reason

The fcollowing is a list of 100 stocks that have the greatest momentum of thoiusands of stocks (we start with the Reuters database that has approximately 8,000 stocks). The list also includes buy and sell signals based on Donchian's dual moving agerage (5 x 20) crossover system for all 100 stocks.  

The lists are updated daily.  If there is nothing compelling here today because of overhead resistance or because of something else, there might very well be some real winners here tomorrow.  

The "Mom" column shows how much the stock has gained in the last 10 days.

If the letters "ORD" are at the end of a stock's name, it means "Ordinary" and it means the same thing as "Common."  All stock shares in our lists are common shares.  We show only the first 24 characters of the names.

Some symbols (but not all) have extenders: ".K "= NYSE, ".O" = OTC, ".PK" = Pink Sheets.  Most charting programs in the U.S do not know what to do with the extenders, so do not enter them when trying to generate a chart of the stock.  The extenders are provided solely to give you added information.  For example, most 3-symbol stocks are listed on the NYSE and most 4-symbol stocks are listed OTC.  However, some companies switch exchanges but keep their symbols.  The .O extender after a 3-symbol ticker clarifies that the stock is not on the NYSE but that it is traded OTC.
