The StockCharts Technical Ranks (aka 'Scooters') are a relative strength metric which rates a stock's technical strength against that of its peers. StockCharts offers several different SCTR-based reports.
Check out our SCTR overview video below, or just read on to learn how to get the most out of SCTR reports.
Stocks are grouped into 'universes' and given a relative SCTR ranking within their universe, based on a number of technical criteria.
The current set of SCTR universes include:
A score from 0.0 to 99.9 is given to each of the members of each universe based on that member's technical strength. A score of 99.9 represents the best performing stock in the universe while 0.0 is the worst performer.
For more details on SCTRs and how they can be interpreted, please see the ChartSchool SCTR article.
The data panels of Your Dashboard can be configured to display SCTR “Top Ten” reports showing the highest and lowest ranked SCTRs for several universes, including the US Large-Cap, US Mid-Cap, US Small-Cap, US ETF, Toronto, London, and India SCTR universes.
Using the tabs above the report, you can switch between viewing the top 10 highest, lowest, most improved, or least improved SCTR values for that universe.
Click on an individual symbol name to view a SharpChart for that symbol.
Additional links at the bottom of the box allow you to see a CandleGlance or RRG Chart with the symbols in the currently-selected Top Ten view.
The SCTR Summary Report allows you to view all the members of the selected universe, not just the top ten.
The SCTR Summary Report can be accessed from either the “Reports & Analysis Tools” section of the Control Center on Your Dashboard, or from the “Summary Pages” section of the Charts & Tools page.
The table will show each stock's SCTR score and how that score has changed since the last trading day. StockCharts members will have access to intraday scores which are updated every 2-3 minutes during market hours.
Hover over a ticker symbol to display a mini chart for that symbol. This is a great way to quickly preview multiple stocks on the list without ever leaving the SCTR Report page.
The SCTR Summary Report has the same functionality as most of the lists on our site:
