This page provides details for the Index you are viewing. At the top, youll find a histogram containing todays high and low price.

Screen

Available only with a Premier Membership, you can base a Stock Screener off the symbols currently on the page. This lets you add additional filters to further narrow down the list of candidates.

Example:

  1. Click Screen on the page and the Stock Screener opens, pulling in the symbols from the Components page.
  2. Add additional criteria in the Screener, such as 20-Day Moving Average is greater than the Last Price, or TrendSpotter Opinion is Buy.
  3. View the results and save them to a Watchlist, or save the Screener to run again at a later date.
  4. Running a Saved Screener at a later date will always present a new list of results. Your Saved Screener will always start with the most current set of symbols found on the Components page before applying your custom filters and displaying new results.
Percentage of Stocks Above Moving Average

For the major indices on the site, this widget shows the percentage of stocks contained in the index that are above their 20-Day, 50-Day, 100-Day, 150-Day, and 200-Day Moving Averages.

In theory, the direction of the moving average (higher, lower or flat) indicates the trend of the market. Its slope indicates the strength of the trend. Longer averages are used to identify longer-term trends. Shorter averages are used to identify shorter-term trends. Many trading systems utilize moving averages as independent variables and market analysts frequently use moving averages to confirm technical breakouts.

When prices are rising they are usually above the average. This is to be expected since the average includes data from the previous, lower priced days. As long as prices remain above the average there is strength in the market.

Components Table

The components table shows you the stocks that comprise the index.
