Other Good Day Trading Stocks and ETFs

Another option is to look for stocks with large daily moves in dollar terms (for example, the price typically moves $1.50 a day and does at least 5 million in volume). This type of screen also tends to produce stocks that provide ample volatility for trading the intraday price moves.These stocks are typically higher priced or have experienced a recent price shock. Average True Range is a common indicator that measures daily average movement (in dollars).

Nvidia (NVDA): ATR (14) is $6.15 and Average Volume (30) is 16.million.

AliBaba Group (BABA): ATR (14) is $3.93 and Average Volume (30) is 21.1 million.
