Can anyone suggest a good and affordable means of scanning for intra-day volume spikes on stocks?
RealTick will be integrating hottrend.com's real time filtering for unusual price/volume activity very soon.
Contact them for more info or visit hottrend.com
Traderbot will do it, all real-time, but it's sort of expensive.$40/mo.
If your time frame allows for a 20 min delay you might find this useful:
I use a program called RavenQuote which allows me to screen for unusual volume as well as put a lot of other filters in that I create -- example:
avg vol >300K shares
todays vol on track to trade 150% of average
stock making a new 65 day high
daily RSI <60
Uses a quote.com data feed total cost runs about $130/mo
also does charting and visual backtesting. Data is sometimes flaky but think that happens from many sources. IMO a good deal if you're serious but don't want to spend thousands on TradeStation etc.
No connection just a resonably satisfied customer.
Might want to check BigEasyInvestor.com & see if they're real time yet -- used to be EOD only, but about $40/mo.
Try getting a Medved Quote Tracker software and sort your stocks by Volume % Up, this will bring out heaviest traded stocks for the day and usually, if you check, there's always a news on it.
Traderbot will do it, all real-time
Have you got a url for Traderbot? Thanks.
