I am an intraday trader in India. Out of 150 stocks which are permitted for intraday trading on NSE or BSE I would like to know of a way to find out which stocks have close to zero volatility.

My strategy uses a 1% stop loss and requires assets or equities that don't fluctuate in price too much (whether the stock is moving up or down).

    Is there a reason you aren't looking this up yourself?

    if you have to ask, you shouldn't call yourself an intraday trader. nothing about your paper trading strategy is going to work out in real market conditions with real orders being placed.

  • Product/service recommendations are off-topic. That includes specific stock recommendations. Dec 3, 2015 at 20:20
  • @ChrisW.Rea did you notice that the real and compliant question is "how do I screen for low volatility stocks" ? because the "edit" button is right next to the "close" button

    @ChrisW.Rea but the answer of screener at all would actually help somebody and lead to an improved repository of information..... like, the goal of this site and the entire stack exchange platform? All three of your reasons are not reasons to vote to close this question. That should concern the rest of us

Find a stock screener that has data for the BSE and NSE. You may be able to look directly at volatility but a good stock screener will have the technical analysis indicator called "average true range", ATR for short. This will let you see the average range of price moves over several days.


you need to use easy programming language to imply onto a scan

where you enter Scan all stocks display if volume < (less than) 100

  • This is incorrect. Just because a stock has little volume does not make it non volatile.. it just makes it illiquid.
