Market capitalization is the total value of a company’s shares. Large caps generally have a market value of $10 billion.
Traders need to evaluate the best opportunities when defining their trading plan. Some traders prefer focusing exclusively on one strategy.
Stocks with a higher market cap may have a smaller net change than a mid-cap stock or small-cap stock. The tradeoff is usually in the form of lower volatility, greater analyst coverage, and a better sense of market maker activity.
In the ZeroPro trading platform, traders can use the Top List to filter stocks by volume and/or price. This provides the trader with an opportunity to scan for stocks with higher market caps. The rationale for the filter is it allows the trader to create a Top List scan with stocks that have higher liquidity and therefore the trader can buy or sell shares quickly and easily without affecting the share price.
