These are stocks whose ADX Line has fallen below both the +DI and -DI Lines and
has stayed there for at least 3 weeks (see Directional Movement
and ADX Values sections for details). When a stock has these
indicators in place, it is theoretically consolidating quietly, preparing for a
big move. This is because the +DI and -DI Lines are battling it out for
superiority, and one of these momentum lines is going to win out eventually,
and it is often in an explosive manner.
Stocks in this screen are sorted in descending order by the number of weeks that
the ADX Line has been below the +DI and -DI Lines, so the stocks at the top of
the table have been consolidating the longest.
