# Fast moving stocks

I am looking to find out what stocks or moving up or down fast. Where I'm having the most trouble, my scans in think or swim work but most of the stocks that show up move slow up or down in a 1-minute or 5-minute chart. So the scan found the squeeze or the VWAP I was looking for but the stock is slow "maybe moving 1 to 2 cents a minute". Not very good for day trading. Is there a thinkscript or study formula I can use to only find stocks that move up and down quickly? That moving like 10 to 20 cents several times each minute

maybe adding a filter including ATR will help. (atr() > 0.10 ) ? experiment with different constants to see what happens...

perhaps try low floats near earnings date !

add condition : min volume = 5,000,000
