What is Relative Outperforming Scan?
Relative outperformance may seem like relative strength, however, they are both different concepts and should not be confused.
Relative outperformance tells about how much per cent more, a stock has outperformed or underperformed the underlying index in absolute per cent.
Usually, stocks that outperform in the last 7 days(SHORT) and last 60 days(MEDIUM) are very good for short-term trading. The outperformance column lists how much percentage more it has outperformed or Underperformed Benchmark (Nifty).
Selecting stocks based on Relative Outperformance
If a stock or index is constantly outperforming the Index in the past 2 To 3 months, it’s highly likely it will continue to outperform and such stocks will be buying candidates on the correction.
For example, let’s say TATASTEEL has been outperforming Nifty for 3 months, It may make a small swing correction and then continue the uptrend journey.
So, if we look for stocks that are outperforming the index for 5-6 months and then start to outperform in the last 5-7 trading sessions, then most possibly have resumed an uptrend again.
