    SC doesn't have scanning for intraday time frames (hours, minutes), so you can't do the MACD thing.

    You can do the volume thing because the scan engine treats the most recent intraday data update as the day's close. Data updates occur every couple of minutes or so, maybe more often. So, if you do

    and [volume > 1 day ago volume]

    it ought to work. I don't know if it will work well, since so much volume is concentrated in the first and last hour, it may not give you a chance to trade intraday. But worth a try!
  • thank u..ill try it out..
