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 (current trading price minus the highest price over the period) dividend by the highest price. The Percent from High is expressed as a negative number as the last price is generally less than the high price.
The Percent from Low column shows the difference between the (current trading price minus the lowest price over the period) dividend by the lowest price. The Percent from Low is expressed as a positive number as the last price is generally higher than the low price.
Available for U.S. and Canadian Markets, the Summary tab provides a link to the list of symbols for the exchange / time period. There is 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.
In most cases, the number listed on the Highs/Lows Summary page will match the value shown on the chart, but due to the way we update the website, the numbers may sometimes be slightly out-of-sync. The chart data is delayed 15-minutes, and the Highs/Lows page is updated every 10-minutes throughout the day. In addition, if the value shown on the chart is "0.01" this is used to represent a value of "0" as shown on the Highs/Lows page.
End-of-Day and Historical Data
The Summary tab also shows a table of the Barchart symbols that track the historical highs and lows for many of the time periods and groupings on the page. Symbols are broken out by Exchange, with a separate table for Historical Data by Market Cap. (Market Cap historical data is available only for U.S. markets.) These symbols link you to the Performance page, where you can then view the historical performance for each category.
"Make This My Default Page"
Logged in users have the option to select a tab (Highs, Lows or Summary), select any timeframe and view, then save that page as the default page to open next time you come to the Highs/Lows page.

Available only with a Premier Membership, you can base a Stock Screener off the symbols currently on the page. This lets you add additional filters to further narrow down the list of candidates.
- Click "Screen" on the page and the Stock Screener opens, pulling in the symbols from the New Highs/Lows page.
- Add additional criteria in the Screener, such as "20-Day Moving Average is greater than the Last Price", or "Trend Seeker® Opinion is Buy".
- View the results and save them to a Watchlist, or save the Screener to run again at a later date.
- Running a Saved Screener at a later date will always present a new list of results. Your Saved Screener will always start with the most current set of symbols found on the New Highs/Lows page before applying your custom filters and displaying new results.
For pages showing Intraday views, we use the current session's data with new price data appear on the page as indicated by a "flash". Stocks: 15 minute delay (Cboe BZX data for U.S. equities is real-time), ET. Volume reflects consolidated markets. Futures and Forex: 10 or 15 minute delay, CT.
The list of symbols included on the page is updated every 10 minutes throughout the trading day. However, new stocks are not automatically added to or re-ranked on the page until the site performs its 10-minute update.
For reference, we include the date and timestamp of when the list was last updated at the top right of the page.
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.
Most data tables can be analyzed using "Views." A View simply presents the symbols on the page with a different set of columns. Site members can also display the page using Custom Views. (Simply create a free account, log in, then create and save Custom Views to be used on any data table.)
