Momentum Composite

The Momentum Composite indicator ranks companies based on four key momentum and volatility ratios to help you find positive momentum and low volatility stocks.

The Momentum Composite Indicator is designed to help you find stocks , with positive momentum, AND low volatility .

It does this by combining three momentum and one volatility ratio into one easy to use indicator.


How Momentum Composite is calculated

Momentum Composite Indicator is calculated as follows:


Step #1

Firstly, all the companies in the screener database are ranked individually by the following four indicators:

· Price Index 3m, (Three-month price momentum) - Higher is better

· Price Index 6m, (Six-month price momentum) - Higher is better

· Price Index 9m (Nine-month price momentum) - Higher is better

· Volatility 12m (Twelve-month price volatility) - Lower is better


Step #2

Secondly, the four rankings are combined into a single number for each company.


Step #3

Thirdly, the combined ranking is then recalibrated to ensure that the 1% top-ranked companies (best) receive a value of 1, the next 1% a value of 2, and so on, up to the 1% worst-ranked companies, which receive a value of 100.

This process results in a composite momentum value for each company in the screener, ranging from 1 (best) to 100 (worst).
