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 the table shows, most of the stocks on the list are trading in the single digits, and while percentages are the same no matter what the price, some traders will avoid stocks trading that low in price.  With that in mind, we have also included a list of the most volatile stocks trading above $10 per share.  For this list, we have only included the ten most volatile names with rising 50-day moving averages and the ten most volatile names with falling 50-day moving averages.
