    I am relatively new to trading and I have been having a hard time finding stocks that are volatile and move during the trading day. My current search parameters look for stocks with high beta and volume, but the interday ranges in these stocks are too tight to really be able to get in and out of. Any recommendations on finding good stocks/options to trade?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure what your asking. He was looking for stocks that were moving a lot or a website to offer trading opportunities. These two websites offer that. They show stocks that day that moved and more.
     
  4. I meant to say,how those links might be helpful to make trading decisions,for intraday trades.Finviz an Barcharts are EOD data source.In this case Freestockcharts would be more helpful.It also has real time stock scanner,for e.g.

    There are a variety of tools out their that are free, I know ET guys love that, and available on line to see what's happening and look for trading ideas. I just offered two. FINVIZ is not end of day data. The other site has both.
