Singapore Stock Screener

The stock screener that I use daily to scan for Singapore stocks look for stocks that show substantial increase in its traded volume coupled with an increase in its price.

Through my observation over the years in the Singapore stock market, filtering stocks using this criteria may be a good way to spot counters that are gaining genuine interest from market participants. 

Metastock is the software I have been using since 2009 to help me screen for stocks that match my criteria.

There are four basic conditions that I use to search for stocks that match my criteria.

1) Volume traded is more than 1 million shares.

Volume represents the amount of shares changing hands between buyers and sellers. An increase in volume may mean more buyers and sellers getting interested in a stock. The motivation behind the increase in activity can be aplenty. Whatever the reason may be, the increased activity is recorded by the trading volume of the stock.

2) Trading volume more than the average for the past 50 days

On a typical day, the traded volume in a stock is usually subdued and total volume is probably around the average of the past few days. However, a spike in volume is usually the first signal that indicates a stock is gaining new market interest.

3) Price increase is more than 5%

A good way to differentiate between buying interest or selling interest is to couple it with price. Generally, a significant volume increase coupled with an increase in price is a positive sign. Likewise, a higher than average volume traded combined with a drop in price is a negative sign.

4) Share price is more than $0.20.

This is because we would want to avoid low quality stocks. I'm not saying all stocks less than 20 cents are stocks of poor quality. I just prefer to invest in the very best and that is usually reflected via a higher share price
