A list of the most volatile names

  1. This is a very simple question....I am looking for a way of screening for the most volatile names in the market currently (the MOMO names.....RIMM, BIDU, etc...), using filters such as min price, min daily volume, and ATR to name a few. I have a way of doing this using Trade Ideas, but since their software constantly repeats tickers it eventually becomes a pain in the ass compiling the list. There must be some other very basic resource that someone is aware of that has this capability. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    jon
     
  2. if you use IB, you could try using the market scanner and screening for option implied volatility...

    or if you got creative with the criteria, maybe the yahoo screener would do it...
