Data Characteristics

StockCharts uses a three-step process to calculate breadth indicators. First, StockCharts maintains component lists for these indices. Second, our scan engine uses these component lists to run scans based on the price data for the individual stocks. Third, the data is then updated and published to our website. This “in-house” data may differ from other sources due to differences in the index components and price data. Index components change and require updates on a regular basis. Additionally, note that StockCharts uses dividend-adjusted data for its calculations, while other sources may use non-adjusted data.
