Using Investor’s Business Daily to watch big moves

leave a comment »

One of the most powerful screening tools (for even non-subscribers) is the “Stocks on the Move” prominently displayed on the http://www.investors.com website. It is updated throughout the day showing stocks with strong earnings growth and relative strength moving at least $.50 up or down on increasing volume compared to the typical volume at that time of day for that stocks.

Think about that for a second. Rather than compare it to the daily average volume total, the IBD goes the next step and compares it to the typical trading volume at that time of day. If a stock is trading 200% more shares in the first hour of trading, and up $1, there’s some buying pressure behind that move, and it deserves your interest.

Watch for a post here on the blog for ideas on how to trade a typical big move.
