  • Try the new editor! Open the advanced scan workbench. Leave the first line as is. Start each following line with "a". The editor will suggest "and [ ]". Click on it. Inside the square brackets, start typing the first letter of the first indicator …
  • The account level services descriptions don't mention a restriction on downloading past data, so I would guess it is available if you are a subscriber at any level. Is past data what you are looking for, or real time? You have to pay for real time s…
  • @lmkwin uses P&F, so maybe he will chime in. You could try the search window at the top left to find questions that mention P&F. Try a variety of plausible terms "p&f", "point and figure", etc.
  • You could check the documentation if you haven't already, or if no one here knows, ask Support. I'm guessing if the daily time frames trigger during the day, before the day is complete, the weekly and monthly time frames would, too, before the week…
  • I'm not sure I understand the question, so I hope I'm not wasting your time, but according to Chart School, PMO is a "normalized" indicator, meaning PMO values can be compared directly among symbols. I think that means you don't have to compare each…
  • // 1 - the first candle closed lower than it opened and [ 1 day ago close < 1 day ago open] // 2a - the first candle is a long candle(body at least as long as shadow) // this way uses Stockcharts' definition, whatever that is and [ 1 day ago L…
  • I think that's really a sell set up - I don't think you'd buy after prices have been rising for 9 nine days.
  • It sounds like a Tom DeMark pattern, some of which may be scannable, but I don't think this is one of them. Any of them would be VERY complex to write. They are kind of fun, but kind of intense because they are so detailed, and I'm not sure (because…
  • I don't think you can do this with the scan engine. You can define a fixed pattern of lows, or several fixed patterns connected in an "or" statement. But you cannot look back at an undefined period of time and count the lower lows until you find 20…
  • Try // doji scan [favorites list is ...] and [daily Hammer is true] // end doji scan Then try each of the other candle types you are looking for. I'm guessing you will get no results because CVX and TXN probably don't fit the exact requirements …
  • If the scan is getting the results you expect, but just too few of them, then it's probably due to the state of the market at the time you are running the scan. The number of results for any scan will vary depending on whether the general market is …
  • This is probably a data vendor issue. It's possible Stockcharts is not aware of it. I would recommend sending your examples (even more if have them) to Stockcharts Support. If you notice them as they are happening, send them along as soon as possibl…
  • Notice that the left edge - the start date - changes, too. So, the value for 1/31 on the 2/14/18 - 2/14/19 is not derived from the values 252 days apart - 1/31/18 and 1/31/19 - it's the value derived from the values of the instrument on 2/14/18 and…
  • Both seem to fit your non-candle criteria, so the question would be whether they fit any of the candle criteria. They both look like they should fit one of them, but it's possible they don't. The scan has to have a cutoff somewhere and CVX and TXN m…
  • @lmkwin Pretty sure you want the ">" symbol for stocks doing better than the reference symbol. Also, the editor seems to like symbols with PctRelative, including index symbols, to be all CAPS, even though small or mixed caps seem to work fine e…
  • This seems to work: [group is LifeInsurance] rank by [PctRelative(20,$DJUSIL) ] Note a few things. I've had trouble getting PctRelative to run with rank by. It seems it will work if you use the new editor (with the line numbers) and accept the su…
  • Here's one link from ChartSchool on BB squeeze: https://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:trading_strategies:bollinger_band_squeeze Another way might be to test for narrowing price channels, so the upper channel of some length (maybe…
  • Well, if you add this line to the end of the scan rank by Min(1,BB Width(20,2)) you will see what the scan engine gets for BB Width values on the results page. They are all under 5. It appears that all the charts are correct, too. If you ran t…
  • I looked through the documentation, and the drop downs in the scan workbench, but I don't see any way to do it. Anyone else have an answer?
  • Did you try it without the min(1,...) ? Min(1,..) would be the indicator value itself for the curent period, so it's not necessary to use min( ). It may be that the min() condition is programmed to expect min(2, ) or greater, so that line, even th…
  • There is an "Events" indicator, but it appears to mark only ex-dividend dates. The annotation tool would allow you to mark earnings dates manually. To mark future earnings dates, you would need to add extra bars to your chart style first.
  • I don't know. But I believe you can upgrade at any time from your account page. The terms should be explained there.

  • I'm pretty sure it does, but I'll test it today. I know the price bars change every five seconds if the price changes. I don't use full quote, so I'm not sure about the other things, but I don't see why not. Is there a particular symbol you are int…

  • Have you tried the new editor on the advanced scan workbench? It's very good at making suggestions while you are typing. For instance, after you click on "Try the new editor" (the green button): type the letter "a", it suggests "and [ ]", meaning…
  • I'll can give you the elements, but you'll have to put them together, since testing for very specific patterns can be time consuming. Just because you get no results does not mean the code is wrong, although it could be. Test with multiple random da…
  • I think you can just add another "or" group like the first one ( so, [ or or or ] and [ or or or] ), but in the second group, instead of the "daily" modifier use "1 day ago". That should pick up any two day combination of candles mentioned.
  • I'm guessing you don't mean open=close, or close= open, because then there would be no body at all. How often is this very specific pattern supposed to occur? Do you have a link that explains the set up?
  • I don't know of anything like that.

  • You have to add RSI several times, once for RSI line, then once for each custom feature - in your case, five, the indicator itself and again for each line. For the first RSI: Add RSI, set Position to Above or Below, Opacity to 0.0 (makes the defau…

  • If I'm understanding you, you should be able to re-size your chart to see everything at once - in the chart attributes section under size, choose on of the "built in" sizes, or use "custom" and make a chart with the exact dimensions (width and heigh…
