How can I find Golden Crosses?

On a stock chart, the Golden Cross occurs when the 50-day Moving Average rises sharply and crosses over the 200-day Moving Average. Usually, a Golden Cross is associated with sharp upward price movement and can be used as a buy signal in the belief that a significant uptrend will follow.

You can use the technical data available in Stockopedia's screener to help you find Golden Crosses. To do that, use the 50 day / 200 day rule, which can be found in the Momentum section of the Rule Picker.

The rules are:

  1. The 50d vs 200d Moving Average Ratio should be greater than 100 (or even 200);
  2. Rank in the Market for the 50d vs 200d Moving Average Ratio should be greater than 95.

Note that the second rule is a "Ranking" rule, which requires you to select it as such in the Rule Picker:


Here is what those two rules look like in the Screener:
