Here’s how I find which stocks tend to move the most, using my high-volatility stock filter, also known as a screen screenener. I run the screen once a week, select a handful of stocks that meet the desired volume and volatility criteria, and then trade the stock every week. Day traders usually look for stocks that have traded at least 1 million shares a day, but I add a volume filter to ensure there is enough volume for short-term traders looking for volatility. If a stock has more than 1.5 million shares traded daily, it is suitable for day trading and has a good chance of being listed among the top 10 of Canada’s five most volatile stocks. Sources: 5, 9, 14

Penny shares are referred to as sub-penny shares, which are traded at one cent per share and are referred to as Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3 penny shares. However, the majority of the trading community agrees that the Tier 3 cent share is a share traded at a much higher price-to-earnings ratio than the average share on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). Sources: 4, 10

If you want to find a broker that will allow you to trade Canadian penny shares, you need to stick with one that deals with the OTC transition, such as Questrade.

If a company is not listed on a regular stock exchange (NYSE, NASDAQ or TSX), it may be traded over the counter. Most brokers will show you a table of active stocks and instead of calling them “Risers, Fallers and most traded shares,” they should point you to the most volatile stocks in the stock [7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]. The stocks with the highest volatility that should be checked are those that move a lot during the day and also have a reasonable daily volume – trading. Sources: 3, 4, 9

On the US market, the first page shows the share price as it is classified on the US stock exchange (which includes all US exchanges but not closed-end funds). In the United States, if you get a stock that is only listed on the NYSE, you have to classify it as a “US” stock (the stock exchange is NASDAQ and the use of that stock was the New York Stock Exchange, not the TSX). The quotes are limited to US markets, closed-end funds are not included. In a U, S Market, listing is limited only to shares with a market capitalization of at least $1.5 million. Sources: 2, 9
