Mark Minervini scan

Hey Everyone! Been awhile since I posted here. Read Mark Minervini's newest book and thought I'd post a scan I made based off his filtering criteria (minus the IDB ranking, which you could replace with a SCTR scan):

//Minervini Rules 1, 2, 4, 5
and [today close > [SMA(50, close)]] and [ [SMA(50, close)] > [SMA(150, close) ] ] and [ [SMA(150, close)] > [SMA(200, close) ] ]

//Minervini Rule 6
and [today close > yesterday's daily min(253,low) * 1.3]

//Minervini Rule 7
and [today's close > yesterday's daily max(253,high) * .7]

Enjoy playing with it (I haven't traded off it yet, but am looking into using it).


  • Thanks for contributing!
  • Trading Scans are fun. I like to change the starting date to review the different results it returns. Thanks for sharing it. Minervini has some interesting thoughts.
  • Is there a way to include the $StockTicker:$SPX ratio with a positive slope? Any way to add slope values into moving averages such as 200 showing positive slop for last 5 months etc?
  • You could try the PctRelative function:

    [group is SP500]

    and [PctRelative(20,$spx) > 0]

    PctRelative is documented here:

    This does not say the SLOPE is positive, it only says the per cent change of the symbol is greater than the per cent change for SPX over the number of bars indicated. But maybe that would be useful.

    This link talks about Slope for ideas. I didn't test it for the PctRelative slope. Possibly a bridge too far.
  • This is a legal statement and it produces results, but I didn't verify them. You could modify the parameters to your liking.

    and [ Slope(200, sma(200,close)) > 0 ]
  • sweet I will play with that!
