The New Highs/Lows page provides access to lists of stocks that have made or matched a new high or low price for a specific time period. Stocks must have traded for the specified time period in order to be considered as a new High or Low.
The number of New Highs or New Lows is the number of times the stock has hit a new high price (or low price) over the given period. For example, in a 1-month period (20 days), if a stock's daily high price is always greater than the previous day's high during those 20 days, then the stock will have made 20 new highs over the 1-month (20 day) period.
The Percent from High column shows the difference between the (high price minus the lowest price for the period) divided by the lowest price for the period. The Percent from Low is the difference between the (low price minus the highest price for the period) divided by the highest price for the period.
Available only for U.S. Markets, the Summary tab provides a link to the list of symbols for the exchange / time period, and also a link to a chart that plots the Barchart symbol used to track the historical number of stocks included in the category.
For example, clicking the chart icon by the NYSE 1-Month Highs shows a chart for Barchart symbol $M1HN. This symbol tracks the historical number of new 1-Month Highs for that exchange.
Note: The symbols used for the charts show you the number from the previous day's close and may not match the number for the data tables.
For U.S. Markets: New Highs/Lows only includes stocks traded on the NYSE, AMEX, Nasdaq or OTCBB exchanges with over 5 days of prices, with a last price above $0.25 and below $10,000, and with volume greater than 1000 shares. It also breaks out ETFs into a separate category. Calculations are adjusted for stock splits but not dividend distributions. The "All US Exchanges" lists include only NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ stocks, excluding ETF's. NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ stocks exclude unit investment trusts, closed end funds, warrant stocks, preferred securities and any non-SIC classified stock.
The New Highs/Lows pages use the current session's data, with the list of symbols being updated every 10 minutes throughout the trading day. You will see new price data appear on the page as indicated by a "flash." However, new stocks are not automatically added to the page until the site performs its 10-minute update.
The New Highs/Lows Pages allow you to select from a number of time frames using the drop-down list on the table's toolbar. Stocks that appear on these pages are stocks that have made or matched a new high or low price for that specific time period during the current trading session.
Additional filtering based on Market Cap, Price, and Volume are available on pages for U.S. and Canadian Markets. For the U.S. Market, the Price listings are limited to stocks trading on the NYSE, AMEX and Nasdaq exchanges, and does not include ETFs, unit investment trusts, closed end funds, warrant stocks, preferred securities and any non-SIC classified stock.

Pages are initially sorted in a specific order (depending on the data presented). You can re-sort the page by clicking on any of the column headings in the table.

Horzontal Scroll on Wide Tables
Especially when using a custom view, you may find that the number of columns chosen exceeds the available space to show all the data. In this case, the table must be horizontally scrolled (left to right) to view all of the information. To do this, you can either scroll to the bottom of the table and use the table's scrollbar, or you can scroll the table using your browser's built-in scroll:
- Left-click with your mouse anywhere on the table.
- Use your keyboard's left and right arrows to scroll the table.
- Repeat this anywhere as you move through the table to enable horizontal scrolling.
Also unique to Barchart, FlipCharts allow you to scroll through all the symbols on the table in a chart view. While viewing FlipCharts, you can apply a custom Chart Template, further customizing the way you can analyze the symbols. FlipCharts are a free tool available to Site Members.
Download is a free tool available to Site Members. This tool will download a .csv file for the View being displayed. For dynamically-generated tables (such as a Stock or ETF Screener) where you see more than 1000 rows of data, the download will be limited to only the first 1000 records on the table. For other static pages (such as the Russell 3000 Components list) all rows will be downloaded.
Free members are limited to 10 downloads per day, while Barchart Premier members may download up to 50 .csv files per day.
