StockCharts Technical Rank (abbreviated SCTR and pronounced "scooter") is StockCharts' own relative strength metric that rates a security's technical strength against that of its peers. You'll learn more about SCTRs later on in this series, but we couldn't want to introduce you to our final summary tool, the SCTR Report.
These reports summarize SCTR values for a variety of groups (large-, mid-, and small-caps, ETFs, Toronto stocks and more), allowing you to quickly find the best-performing security in that market segment. Choose your SCTR "universe" from the dropdown menu at the top of the page. The securities will be sorted with the highest (best) SCTR values at the top of the table.

Our Summary Pages allow you to get a quick sense of how the market is performing at a high level, then drill down to find the best-performing market segments and even individual securities.
