  • In the search you can put in the terms that you are looking for. Both on this site and on StockCharts. The scan codes are often listed in those posts.
  • If you view your list in Candleglance view and then select the ROC period you are looking for. You should be able to SEE the ROC but it's not sortable. You can also view your list in summary view and pick different time periods, sort it that way, …

  • I must emphasis, that this is NOT a trading strategy. It's best to assemble the names, in a CSS ETF Portfolio of sorts. A good CSS name will allow a month or three for entry. Patience in stalking the names and understanding their DNA is a vital e…

  • Unfortunately, on StockCharts, there is no filter for 3 or more consecutive sell signals on a point and figure chart. A descending triple bottom would be 2 consecutive sell signals but not all multiple consecutive sell signals patterns will show a …

  • I think that SCTR is a good tool, as is the Chande Trend Meter (CTM). As with all tools, it's what you make of them. I think there was a recent blog post on using the right tools for the right job. The RS comparisons are good things to be aware o…

  • From reading the SC definitions, perhaps, Ease of Movement technical indicator, EMV in the technical scan workbench, might come closest to the original poster's question.
  • The Tenkan Sen is 9 day daily high/low mid point moving average
  • RSP is an ETF designed to track the Equal Weighted SP500.
  • $SPXEW seasonality chart came up for me on both, the standard Sharp Chart link to the Seasonality chart as well as the basic Seasonality Chart page. Maybe you mistyped or added spaces?
  • Pretty much, the unique things I see on TDA that aren't on SC is the Revenue and Rolling EPS overlays. Other than that, pretty much everything else is on SC in some shape, form or different name. I find TDA and TOS to be less impressive compared t…
  • Hi markd, Yes, I have a scan set up for that purpose. I also use it to re-"rank by" a list as well as re-complete symbol descriptions. But with a full backup option, the feature should/ would export all lists to a text file by list. That is a fu…

  • Very good suggestion on backups. It would be nifty if StockCharts added this feature, for queries as well as chartlists. Chartlists would be easier from a programming standpoint. At Dorsey Wright, they allowed you to export a text file with the …

  • The Magic Numbers are Gerald Appel's creation. They are just levels at which he observed a tendency for prices to find support and resistance, on their way up and down. They are the numbers, there is no calculation. If you add a Horizontal line o…
  • The zigzag 6 more closely approximates the P&F activity for prices over $50 and the zig zag 14 for stocks under $50.
  • Another option that may be beneficial is to add Horizontal Lines as a chart overlay. I use Gerald Appel's Magic numbers. These are levels that he observed to be where expected support or resistance is shown on most charts. Kind of Darvas box lik…
  • If you go to the Predefined Scans, click on the results for a pattern scan of interest. In the upper right of the results, there is a link to Click here to edit this scan. #1 The scan language will be shown in the Advanced Scan Workbench. From…
  • Glad you got the Cross code to work for your needs. Let me know if you find the scanning useful. The Aroon indicator was created by Tushar Chande. He also created the Chande Trend Meter among other technical indicators. He has a blog on StockCha…
  • move your group up to the second line. You build a scan from top to bottom. Starting with the biggest or widest net and then working your way down. Your scan says, give me stocks that have a minimum volume. AND those that the Aroon up is greater…
  • Aroon Up(XX) x Aroon Down(XX) the X is used to show a cross. It can be used in a number of situations like [Aroon Up(25) x 70.0] if you were looking for the Aroon Up 25 crossing the 70 level. [Aroon Up(25)] x [Aroon Down(25)] The cross reads …
  • Aroon Up(XX) x Aroon Down(XX) In the Technical Scan workbench, The Aroon's are an available option in the Technical Indicators dropdown.
  • At DWA you can create portfolios of stocks. It's similar to a chartlist at StockCharts. The exception is a portfolio can be built with paper dollar trades so historic returns are capable of being saved. If SC added a portfolio tool, then I would …

  • I use the presence of a dynamic CSS pattern on the point and figure chart. There must be at least 3 consecutive sell signals (CSS) on the default PnF chart. After that, I look for a column of X's that is at least 7x's high. Or 2 columns of 6x's b…
  • The stochastic shows continued potential opportune times on the Force indicator if the original MA cross on Force wasn't fully supported by the rest of the chart (story). I use the same stochastic time frame that I used for the MA cross.
  • Thanks markd. I've been searching the forums and help for how to do something like that but in regards to the full stochastics overlay on the force index. I didn't try the comma before but, it appears to work. Thank you. You are a treasure of in…
  • markd is correct. You would need to establish a baseline block of stocks in a list and then run scans against that list. Updata Analytics software suffers the same shortcoming on fundamental fronts. I like StockCharts scanning much better. Only…
  • I think that markd has it. Price Performance with a 20 and 200 day ma and OBV with a 20 lines up pretty spot on.
  • You can also go to the Pre-Defined Scans on StockCharts and use one of the Elder Impulse System Scans as a baseline to get started. In the pre-defined scans you would open the results and then click on the "Click here to edit this scan" in the uppe…
  • You can use the PPO (1,200,1) to show the % difference in relation to the 200 day on a chart. The scale shows the % difference. Change the 200 to whatever number you would like to know where it stands on a chart. You can also use PPO in scans to …
