Smartlists are like watchlists, but the stocks in them are determined by certain pre-set criteria, rather than being added manually. As market conditions change, stocks are automatically added or removed from the Smartlist accordingly.
Smartlists are highly configurable and can be filtered and ordered on many parameters.
Below are just a few examples of Smartlists that could be created.

Setting a delta period and ordering the smartlist by
% Delta shows you a list of stocks that have increased or decreased the most since the set delta time. This can be useful to find stocks that are moving intraday.
Setting a delta period to longer periods, for example weekly or monthly, can be used to identify stocks that are out or under performing over longer time frames.

The Relative Volume figure calculates a stocks usual trading volume as at the same point in time during the day.
The Relative Volume figure can be based on
The Difference and Ratio figures measure the current volume vs the set relative volume period. This can help you identify whether volume flows for the stock are increasing or decreasing.
In Spark, relative volume calculations only include On Market trades. This better reflects a stock's trading activity as it prevents data being distorted by one off large block trades.
During the pre market auction phase the Relative Volume figures account for shares traded in the opening auction.
Relative Volume columns only appear in the Smartlist if a delta period has been set.
Throughout Spark a stocks Relative Volume figures are displayed whenever you hover over any volume figure within Spark.
