UNOFFICIAL SharePad Guide: Finding The Market’s Largest Risers And Fallers

Last updated: 31 August 2020
By Maynard Paton

Welcome to part 5 of my UNOFFICIAL SharePad guide for new subscribers!

This page describes how to create a list column to quickly sort the day’s largest risers and fallers, as well as sort the largest movers for the last five days and since the start of 2020.

Before you start!

My instructions below adjust the default Equities – Overview column layout in step 1. I use this default and I recommend you do as well to start with. The original columns can be restored and other list views can be created at a later date.

My instructions also create three columns, which show the share-price percentage changes for:

* the day;
* the last 5 trading days, and;
* since the start of 2020.

If you just want the largest risers and fallers of the day, then skip over the optional steps 5, 6, 7 and 8.
