Screener for the Stock Market Game
We created this page to help you find ideas for your portfolio and any contests that you are in. You can see what is popular right now,
over the past few hours, both long and short symbols. Be sure to read about short selling if you are unfamiliar with that concept.
It can help you make money when prices are dropping. You may select different price ranges to find companies that match your criteria.
For example, the lowest-price companies are usually the most volatile and risky. Many of them at $1.00 or less often go bankrupt within a year.
But because of the price volatility, you can make or lose money very quickly. Now, when prices are $50 or more, they are often belong to large,
established companies that are quite stable. The downside is that these prices do not usually change by large percentages, so it takes longer to make or lose money.
That is why it is important to understand the different price behaviors in order to match the risk you have in mind.
This page also displays each symbol's exchange. That gives you another way to filter out companies to match your objectives.
The NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX exchanges are all very stable. However, the OTC/BB and Pink Sheet symbols are often very unstable, so proceed with caution with those.
