Many top momentum stock extended

Momentum stocks are the stocks leading the market advance. Momentum stocks tend to move in momentum bursts of few days to week. After that they tend to pullback or go sideays and then make another move.
Swing traders focus on momentum stocks for their explosive moves. A momentum stock can sometime make a 20 to 50% move in few days. Recent example of that is ENOC , in just 4 days it went up over 39% from 11.50 to around 16.


Swing traders monitor  the top 100 or 200 stocks by six month momentum. Such stocks offer good swing trading candidates. What you have to look for in the list is stocks undergoing orderly range contraction. Those stocks are potential candidates for breakouts.

The following 50 stocks are currently top ranked by 6 month momentum. Most of them are extended on a 5 to 10 day time frame. But some like OCN and GNRC are possibly setting up for swing breakouts.
