Pre-Market Data
Markets are already moving before the opening bell rings, and Finviz Elite allows traders to quickly see where the action is. Pre-market data is available at 9am EST each day of the week, which allows traders to analyze and screen for stocks that are moving in the pre-market.

Tools such as the market map provide a snapshot of what all of the stocks and ETFs in the S&P 500, U.S. or World are doing in the pre-market. A simple screen such as "Top Gainers," "Top Losers" or "Unusual Volume" can be used to find stocks or ETFs that are seeing lots of action before the bell. In addition, with the upgrade the Finviz home page provides a snapshot of relevant and real-time information traders should know before the opening bell rings.

Starting at 9am, pre-market data becomes available to Finviz Elite members. No additional steps are required.
