The following is a list of stocks in an uptrend, i.e. all stocks are trading above their 20-day, 50-day, and 200-day moving averages. All of these stocks have Relative Volume indicators above 2, meaning that current share volume is more than double the 3-month average.

To control the quality of the list, we only focused on stocks with market caps north of $2B. For each company listed we'll discuss short float and institutional money flows (data sourced from Finviz). The list has been sorted by Relative Volume. Full analysis below.
