Very basic question

If i subscribe to live data feed for Canadian stocks then will my advanced queries also be on live data?

    For US stocks, if you run an intraday scan, the scan will consider the most recent intraday update as the closing data for the current day. I assume it works the same for Canadian. So you may get hits during the day that you do not get after the close because the data has changed. And, of course, you may get hits after the close that you did not get during the day for the same reason.

    Also, you can write scans for daily, weekly and monthly time frames only (not sure if all levels can do monthly scans). You cannot write scans for intraday time frames. For instance, you could not scan for a MACD crossover in the hourly time frame.
  • okay. Thank you @markd
