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 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. These symbols link you to the Performance page, where you can then view the historical performance for each category.
