Big Volume Prospects October 22nd Edition

by on October 22, 2013 | ETFs Mentioned:

Here is a look at ETFs that are seeing a meaningful uptick in trading activity. The ETFs included in this list are rated as big volume prospects for two reasons. First, the five-day average trading volume for each of these funds exceeds its respective 200-day average trading volume.

Second, and more importantly, each of these ETFs has seen its five-day volume increase by more than five-times its historical average, as represented by the trailing 200-days of trading activity. Note that a number of the prospects that make it on this list are young ETFs that are finally gaining traction and seeing an uptick in buying volumes. This list also captures more established funds that have seen a significant spike in trading volumes for one reason or another; traders can use this to identify opportunities that may continue to experience positive momentum and to identify potential reversals when price and volume trends are diverging.

Note that this prospects list does not include a liquidity screen; instead, it focuses on all meaningful trading volume increases over the last five days. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.
