Day Trading Stock Picks For This Week - Tuesday, May 30

Day trading stock picks likely to move big (up or down) during the week of May 30: $FMSA $SN $DYN $HTZ $CLF $OCLR $WLL $AKS $ENDP $MOMO and few that are usually good day trading candidates: $SPY $BAC $WFT

I screen for day trading stocks with a recent history of volatility. That means these stocks are highly likely to move big (up or down–trade the intraday trends) each day for the next week.

A new list is published each Tuesday, before the Open, on

What can you expect from the day trading stock picks:

  • greater than 5% moves intraday, on average
  • more than 4,000,000 average volume (typically more)
  • all stocks; no leveraged ETFs
  • Priced between $5 and $150

These are day trading stock picks worth watching. I’m not recommending a specific trade or direction. For some guidance on day trading the stock picks discussed below, see How to Day Trade Stocks in 2 Hours or Less.

Pick a few stocks and trade them; don’t try to trade all of them.

Trading volatile stocks isn’t for everyone. It takes quick reflexes and fast execution to take advantage of the large percentage moves in these stocks.
