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 then 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.

As has been the case in prior months, the majority of the stocks in the list share similar traits. They are in downtrends (declining 50-day moving averages), most are from the financial sector, and they trade for under $5 per share. In fact, the only stock on this month's list that has a double digit price is Sun Trust Bank (NYSE:STI).
