Scan to exclude small cap equities

Is there a way to exclude small cap equities from my scans. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Probably the most comprehensive way is to decide what your minimum market cap is ("x"), then include a line like

    and [market cap > x]

    (note: market cap is an option in the "Ticker properties" drop down.)

    Market cap is denominated in millions, so

    and [market cap > 100]

    gets stocks with a market cap greater than 100 million.


    If you want only SCTR stocks, you could say

    and

    [

    [SCTR.large > 0]

    or

    [SCTR.mid > 0]

    ]

    "large" and "mid" refer to market cap categories as Stockcharts defines them. It seems they don't use specific numerical figures to define each category, but rely mostly on a stock's membership in popular indexes. Also, they don't label every stock, so this approach would ignore those stocks.
