  • As far as I know, RUT is not a group. But you can add any number of other index groups from the Indexes and ETFs drop down on the scan workbench. Select the group you want, click add and edit into the framework below. The syntax for the OR statement…
  • A couple of ways to do that. One way is to use Gallery view, which is one of the list View options. Gallery view shows you intraday, daily, weekly and P&F charts on the same page (which requires scrolling down). You can customize the Gallery vi…

  • I'm not sure whether your conclusion is correct. But, I think I would take to heart that the scan engine was not designed for the purpose you want to use it for, so it's not likely to be completely satisfactory - sort of like using a hammer to drive…

  • I sent you the "alerts" link because it runs scans intraday. I was speculating that if you run the same scan repeatedly intraday, the scan engine may use the intraday alert rules to process it. But I don't know that. It appears the charts are upda…
    in Scanning Comment by markd July 17
  • Well, that's part of the internals - the rules of the scan engine for managing traffic - that I have no direct knowledge of. The process for intraday alerts is explained here https://stockcharts.com/docs/doku.php?id=alerts#alert_processing I do…

  • I don't know enough about the internal workings of the scan engine to tell you more. What did support say?
    in Scanning Comment by markd July 17
  • Well, just to be clear, Stockcharts does not support scanning of intraday indicators - for instance, you can't scan for an hourly MACD crossover. The scan engine does not store intraday data for scanning. I see your scan does not ask for intraday co…

  • On the advanced scan workbench, look at the drop down for "Sectors and Indexes". Select the sector you want - e.g. "FINANCIAL SECTOR" by clicking on it to highlight, then click on the "Add" button. The line and [group is FinancialSector] will b…
  • After the close on Friday: no modifier looks at data as of the Friday close 1 day ago looks at data as of the close Thursday 2 days ago - as of the close Wednesday 3 days ago - as of the close Tuesday. 4 days ago - as of the close Monday 5 d…

  • Here's a link to how the SCTR is calculated. It uses weighted data from long, medium and short time frames, with long and medium time frames weighted more heavily. http://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:technical_indicators:sctr Yo…

  • Here's a link to the Chart School explanation of Chart Styles: https://stockcharts.com/docs/doku.php?id=chartstyles It's a bit long, but once you get chart styles, your life will be much easier. You can switch between styles (e.g. daily to weekly …
  • I don't get the same results as you do. I get 38 hits (4:45 am EDT 7/10), but they all cross as expected. You can see this if you put your results in a scratch list and apply the SCC Default chart style. The cross occurs on the very last bar. Howe…
  • Details of the "rank by" statement syntax and results are here (about 3/4 down the page)" https://stockcharts.com/docs/doku.php?id=scans:advanced_scan_syntax
  • MACD Line represents the difference between the short ema (default 12) and the long ema (default 26). As long as the short ema is above the long, MACD Line is above 0. So, in your case, substitute 20 and 50 for 12 and 26, and then test that the m…
  • 999 is the limit on the number of symbols the scan engine will return. Limiting the amount of data a query can return is a common (IT) industry practice for large databases. Very large query answers can slow down database performance considerably.…
  • I think you placed your "or" incorrectly. The generic format for an or statement with compound conditions would be : and [ // opening bracket for "or" statement [ // alternative 1 [condition 1] [condition 2] [ ... ] ] // end 1 …
  • I think you got most of that text from here: http://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:technical_indicators:dppmo That is not a scan. It is an explanation of how the PMO indicator is calculated.

  • Apparently Barclays discontinued that index. If you go to other sites, you will see the data stops on that date. I was unable to determine what a cash index is for the purpose you have stated. I would think it would be the interest paid on cash ba…
    in US Cash index Comment by markd July 3
  • Yes, it is versus other currencies. Would it be similar to a short term US Treasury issue yield? To see those, enter "$UST" (without parens) in the symbol search window.
    in US Cash index Comment by markd July 3
  • $USD looks like it is the continuous contract, probably the one you want. ^DXZ18 appears to be the most active current contract. Both are end of day. Both are from ICE.

  • I think this is what you want: and [ [ [today's close is <= daily EMA(13, daily close)] and [today's close >= daily EMA (26, daily close)] ] or [ today's close is <= daily EMA (26, daily close)] ] You have to …
  • 100 % more would be twice as much as average, so and [volume > sma(50, volume) * 2]
  • Both versions generate a syntax error "Mixed time periods specified..." So, you can't do it. You could try translating weekly RSI(14) into a daily indicator - 14 weeks x 5 days in a week would be RSI(70) in a daily time frame. You would have to d…
  • Stockcharts does not include the Supertrend Indicator. Also, cannot "plug in" your own indicator code. If your subscription allows, you can upload data results of your own calculations of an indicator from a spreadsheet. Stockcharts will plot the …
  • You could try ATR(x) or BBWidth. I haven't used either for that purpose, so I don't have proven scan suggestion or useful parameters.
    in IV Indicator? Comment by markd June 29
  • Never seen that. Anybody else know, or have a substitute idea?
  • Well, you need a lot of "or" statements, which are tricky because you have to watch how you group the alternative or conditions with your brackets, and you have to group the compound conditions within the or statements. I'd be surprised if you cou…
  • As far as I know, the scan engine will not give you an error for mixing time frames. You would have to keep in mind that (as far as I know) a scan run mid-week with weekly timeframe conditions will consider that day the end of the current week. …
  • A google search on "dax real time charts" gets a few hits, like investing.com or tradingview.com. Neither appears to work like Stockcharts, but might be helpful. Interactive Brokers has lots of features for foreign trading if you have an account (mi…
  • I know you asked for indicators, but the first sign of a problem with at trend comes from volume. There are several variations. The first is climax volume. Very high volume, maybe at least twice the monthly average of daily volume, clears out buye…
