    How we found the Chart of the Day:

    We found the "Chart of the Day" by scanning the Barchart "All Exchanges Daily What's Hot". That list highlights stocks with large price movements in terms of 20-day standard deviations, rather than percentage moves. Ranking stock price movement based on standard deviations rather than percentage changes puts all the stocks on a level playing field and spots stocks with unusually large movements relative to their recent performance, as opposed to percentage changes which tend to include stocks that naturally have high volatility. For further information, please click on the link for "What's Hot" help. Once we were on the What's Hot list, we then applied a "Custom View" heading with the Barchart Opinion ranking as one of the columns. we then sorted the list by the Barchart Opinion ranking in order to find the stocks with the highest Opinion.

    Barchart's Opinion trading systems are mostly a Buy and Barchart's daily TrendSpotter trading system is a "Buy." Please note that the Barchart Opinion indicators are updated live during the session every 10 minutes and can therefore change during the day as the market fluctuates. The indicator numbers shown below therefore may not match what you see live on the Barchart.com web site when you read this report.

    • Short-Term Indicators: 80% Buy
    • Medium-Term Indicators: 50% Buy
