The 52 week high is the highest price a stock has seen in the last 52 weeks. This typically includes yesterday’s trading, but not today’s trading.
There are many other highs that traders look at, but this one is especially popular because many exchanges publish this information. Most data providers and direct access-trading platforms display the 52 week high because they can get this information directly from the exchange.
Our software tell you the exact date of each high. You can set filters based on how long it has been since we’ve seen a price this high before today. You can specify any time period. If you specify 365 days, you will only see 52 week highs.
