Top Movers: market scans with pre-defined criteria

The top movers tool scans the market based on predefined criteria such as price (highest winners or losers) and volume. Different time frames for the scan are also available (ex: since yesterday, since 1 hour).


The Top Movers tool lets you quickly find the top 50 securities in a market of your choice with scans based on pre-set criteria like price variations, volume, gaps, pre-opening movement, candlestick patterns, and order book volume. To open it, go to the "Display" menu and select "Top Movers".

If you want to use fully customized scans based on your own conditions, check the ProScreener section.

The "Variations" tab lets you execute scans based on the following criteria:

  • Up (largest price increase)
  • Down (largest price decrease)
  • Volume (units)
  • Volume (cash)
  • Opening gap up
  • Opening gap down
  • Abnormal volume

You can also choose since when (ex: Yesterday, 1-hour, 30 minutes...) and the market to scan. The available choices in the "Since" menu depend on your selected criteria.

Up to 10 Top Movers windows can be displayed simultaneously in the Premium version with each window containing up to 100 instruments.
