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.
