Hi Marwan

This site will screen stocks by high volatility (It will also screen for lots of other things as well), and seems pretty good-
High/Low Volatility- SchaeffersResearch.com

Here is another-

I use IG index quite a lot, and have found stuff like oil and the forex markets move a lot, especially during trading hours -the only problem is the spreads can be a killer, especially if you have a stop/loss in place and try to scalp, like me. 6 pips on the cable? not too bad, but looking for better!

This is not what you asked but in case anyone doesn't know:

Beta measures a stocks volatility compared to the market. A stock with a beta of 1.0 will run very close to the market. A stock with a beta of less than 1.0 is less volatile to the market and a stock with a beta of over 1.0 is more volatile than the market.

example: a stock with a beta of 1.2 is 20% more volatile than the market.
