  • The chart is very gappy anyway, suggesting there is not much liquidity. When there is volume, it seems to be due to a few very large trades, not continuous trading. If you look at the 5 minute chart you will see there are lots of five minute periods…

  • Have you looked at the chart school article's suggested scans? I think you could just modify either one from the daily to the weekly time frame by changing the modifier "daily" to "weekly". https://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:te…
  • Here's what Investopedia thinks: http://www.investopedia.com/investing/marijuana-stocks/
  • Maybe she cut and pasted it wrong, or maybe you did. The section you show looks OK. See if you can cut and paste the whole thing into your answer to this comment, instead of a screen capture. Maybe we can find the error that way.
  • I think you would need to divide the 44 days into two periods, then compare the min MACD Hist value in each period. So, something like and [min(21, MACD Hist(12,26,9)) > 21 days ago min(21, MACD Hist(12,26,9))] So the left side looks at the mos…
  • I don't think you can code ConnorsRSI in the scan engine, because it doesn't allow you to capture numbers - like the number of consecutive down days or up days. You could code Connors RSI(2). You would look for RSI(2) less than 20 and the 200 SMA …
  • You can run scans any time you want. But when you build a scan, your conditions can only reference data from daily, weekly and monthly time frames. So you cannot build a scan that looks for, say, MACD crossovers using hourly data. If you run a dail…
  • Stockcharts gets its data from a vendor. If that vendor doesn't track the cryptocurrencies, SC would have to contract with a vendor that does. They may be considering whether to do that if interest grows. You could contact Support and see what they …
  • Well, something funny is going on. It may have to do with the very long emas, but I'm not sure. I also thought it might be a peculiarity of the "x" operator in dealing with the weekly time frame, but that doesn't seem to be it, either. If I run eit…
  • I think you mean it comes on most of your scans, not charts. If you look closely, you will see there is a period "." right at the very end of the last line. Since it is outside the brackets, and it has no meaning by itself, the scan engine doesn…
  • Well, Richard Wyckoff had a lot to say about this back in the 1930s. If you are not familiar with his work, you should get to know something about it. A couple of books that explain it pretty will are Charting the Stock Market - the Wyckoff Method …

  • I don't see any charts attached. Interpretation depends on goals. What to do you want to do?
  • Prices change when there are not enough shares offered to meet demand at that price (so prices rise to find more shares for sale) or, there are not enough dollars to buy all the shares offered at that price (so the price is lowered to find more doll…

  • You would set up a statement that says the maximum price over two years - max(500, high) - is less than 20 per cent greater than the minimum price over two years - min(500, low) * 1.2. The 500 is because there are about 250 trading days in a year -…
  • On the Advanced Scan page, you can select Full K and Full D from the Technical Indicators drop down in the Scan Builder section. That will put those two indicators in the Scan Criteria window. You then have to edit the inserted text so K and D are …
  • In general on the blogs if you roll your cursor over a chart and it changes icons, there is a live chart underneath. Not always, but often.
  • You can see the chart settings by clicking on the chart in the article and then clicking on the banner "Click here to see the live version". You should be signed in to Stockcharts first. It looks like she is just using the "Price" indicator with th…
  • The stock had almost tripled since February, which meant a lot of people had big profits, which is a strong reason to sell. Prior to the news, there was one big down day, May 11, suggesting that some institution(s) or fund(s) had hit their price ra…

  • SMAs give equal weight to each number in the series used to calculate the average. Some people object to this because they feel that older prices are less relevant than recent prices. EMAs get around this problem by front weighting the numbers, so…
  • I don't get the same result. On the Advanced Scan Page, in the Scan Builder section, when selecting from the Technical Indicators drop down, for "Upper Kelt Chan" I get: and [Upper Kelt Chan(20,2,10) < close] while for "Lower Kelt Chan" I g…
  • I should have said, each index calculates the net, not the number.
  • @GaryArmani It might have been clearer had I said "up or down since the most recent prior sale". $TICK is a micro measure of change. It looks back only one transaction. If the most recent transaction, at say 10:51:23, is higher than the immediately…
  • Just select MAX from the Technical Indicators and edit for the number of days you want and substitute SCTR in place of close.
  • @mokurum The data you are seeing intraday for the current trading session is the data provided by the vendor to Stockcharts. So you always see the actual, real time market prices for *today's* action - either the current bar on a daily or higher tim…
  • You would test for the 40 days ago 50 MA less than the 40 days ago 200 MA, and today's 50 MA greater than today's 200 MA. If you get a hit, then at some point in between, the 50 must have crossed above the 200 at least once.
  • I suppose you could do it in either, but I always use the advanced, so that's what I'm referring to. You want to use the max( ) function, which looks for the highest value in the time period you specify, no matter when it occurred in that period. …
  • Apparently you cannot use either "outstanding shares" or "market cap" other than with comparison operators (like ">" and "<" ) and a constant, like 100 or 20000. So a statement like and [volume > outstanding shares * .4] doesn't parse.…
  • @tsben88 I would recommend that you split this up into several simple scans so you don't have to deal with the more complex "or" conditions. Also, its easier to deal with results when they all meet one particular condition or set of conditions. The…
