Other Good Day Trading Stocks and ETFs

Another option is to look for stocks with large daily moves in dollar terms (for example, the price typically moves $1.50 a day and does at least 5 million in volume). This type of screen also tends to produce stocks that provide ample volatility for trading the intraday price moves.  These stocks are typically higher priced or have experienced a recent price shock.
