Two scans that I am stuggling to code .. Need Help! Thanks ;

Hi All,

Thanks in advance;

I am trying to code two Intraday scans.

1. Red to green move: Opens above or below "Yesterday Close". Goes into Red (below Yesterday close), and comes back to break into Green (above Yesterday close). I want to catch these moves, before or immediately after they break.

2. Break of High of the day: Stock makes a high of the day and goes down and breaks it back with a "U shaped" turn. I want o catch these before they break or immediately after.

I was able to code several scans with all indicators, but these two scenarios was a struggle to play with (Open, Close, High and Low);

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks;

Rgds,
Hanuman.

    If you run a scan during market hours as of the most recent update, it will consider the most recent update as the closing data for any time frame you specified in the scan - daily, weekly or monthly. You cannot specify a scan in an intraday time frame - hourly, five minutes, one minute, etc. So you could not scan for an hourly MACD crossover, or a 5 minute EMA, etc. Likewise, you cannot scan for intraday price patterns.

  • Hi Mark,

    Just a thought,

    Quill -

    Ps. what I am looking for is a scan that posts the low for the day (yesterday) or the high for the day (yesterday).
