Momentum Scan

Momentum Stock Scanner & Screen

We have a variety of scanners/filters on this site. List of Scanners/Filters 

Notice to visitors: 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 following is a list of 100 stocks that have the greatest momentum of thousands 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 average (5 x 20) crossover system for all 100 stocks.
       This list was originally for subscribers only.  Now it is available to all visitors.  If there is nothing compelling on any given list, there might very well be something worth considering on the next list. 

“Mom” column shows how much the stock has gained in the last 10 days.
