Notice to visitors: We have upgraded our free lists. Volume surges and Momentum have been changed to consist of stocks that were previously on the subscriber list rather than just below it.
Below is a free list of stocks that have had a surge in Volume.
Many investors are interested in such stocks because the volume surge often precedes a price surge. The greater the surge in volume, the more likely it is that price will follow. When a stock's volume surges or spikes, it means interest in that stock has suddenly increased. People have, for some reason, begun buying or selling in much greater quantities than is "normal" for the stock. A Volume surge is often the beginning of a new significant move (up or down) in price.
We search thousands of stocks (over 7000) and rank them according to their percentage change in volume. The percentage surge in volume is indicated under the yellow column heading "% Ch Vol." Below is a list of the top 100. The list also has a column in which alerts are posted for every stock in the top 100 list that has just had a Donchian crossover signal ("buy" or "sell").
The 100 stocks on this list are ranked in the order of the magnitude of the volume surge. The list is updated daily, so even 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.
