For traders with a more short-term time horizon, we have compiled a list of the S&P 1500 stocks that have the largest intraday high-low ranges (based on the average percent spread between the intraday high and low over the last fifty days). We grouped the stocks based on whether they have a rising or falling 50-day moving average. Stocks highlighted in gray are new to the list this month.

The most notable (obvious) trend of this month's list is that only one of the stocks highlighted has a rising 50-day moving average. That one stock is an airline! Besides that, the list of volatile stocks is heavily represented with Financials, as the sector remains the focal point of the current bear market.
