  • It's not documented that you can do this, but it seems to get accurate results: [group is SP500] and [weekly KST(10,13,15,20,10,13,15,20,9 ) > 0.0] When you select KST from the Indicator drop down on the advanced scan workbench, it does not sho…
  • You need to include a screen shot or at least a symbol.

  • I don't see that problem right now, although it's three hours later. You should email Support directly when the problem is happening (this is a user site not monitored by Stockcharts support). That said, if there is a problem, it is probably with t…
  • It's the "NYSE Common Stock Only Advance-Decline Line". You can see the chart by putting the symbol in the window next to the "Sharpcharts" drop down at the top of your dashboard page. Also, here's a link to a John Murphy blog article about it (fr…
  • To troubleshoot, put the missing stocks in a list and run the scan against only the list - without the volume, region, type conditions. If you still don't get the hits you expect, then the chart candle doesn't meet the Stockcharts definition of th…
  • and [close > 251 days ago close] 251 days is the number of trading days in a calendar year - 52 x 5 = 260 - 9 market holidays.
  • If you haven't already, you should report this to Support.
  • You need to compare the difference between the close and the open to the difference between the high and the low. You want the open:close difference to be greater than a certain fraction of the high:low difference. But there is a problem. The dif…

  • I don't think there is an indicator for short interest. As I understand it, the data is released monthly, that's not so good for an indicator (only 12 data points a year). You may be able to filter and sort that data on finviz, however. If anyon…
  • Here's the chart school article on Mass Index. Apparently, the 27 level is not written in stone: https://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:technical_indicators:mass_index

  • Try this for selecting symbols. Also, as @lmkwin suggests, looking for just one crossover will get you more results. If you DO want both, change the "or" between K and D to "and". [ [[country is US] and [type is stock] and [volume > 500000]] …
  • OK. Thanks very much!
  • @lmkwin , can you clarify whether an alert has to specify a symbol?
  • The documentation is confusing about this. The video says you must specify a symbol, but the documentation seems to say you don't. Maybe someone else who uses alerts knows.
  • No, but maybe someone will.
  • I don't know if you can predict extreme days. But, you might try something like this: On a five minute SPY chart, set up the indicator Fast Stoch (24,1). Basically, that tracks where price is in a two hour price channel (there are twelve 5 minute b…
  • On the scan workbench, you can select all the indicators you want to use. You have to edit them slightly. For crossovers, the operator is "x", which means that the expression on the left, e.g. Minus DI(14), crosses above the expression on the righ…
  • I don't think I can help you there. The scan engine is really designed to find state changes, or combinations of state changes, like crossovers or breakouts - e,g, MACD Line x Signal, Fast Stoch x 20, etc., and filtering for states in effect, e.g. c…
  • As far as I know, you can make templates (chart styles) only from the options offered on the Chart Workbench in the Chart Attributes, Overlays and Indicators sections. Maybe some one has an idea how to accomplish something like what you want with w…
  • It looks like you can just do this: On the scan workbench, select the the pattern you want from the Candlestick Pattern drop down and add the modifier "weekly" in front of it: // begin scan [group is sp500] and [weekly Bullish Engulfing is true]…
  • The shortest time frame you can scan for is daily. You can't scan for intraday time frames like an hour, half-hour, five minutes, 1 minute, etc.

  • I'm guessing, but the NDX is probably based on the Nasdaq 100 index, $NDX, while NAS would probably be all stocks listed on that exchange.
  • For a scan, this seems to do it: [ put your list here] and [max(6,ROC(1)) < 0]
  • I haven't actually done this, but you could have another browser window open to a chart list and add the symbols as they are mentioned. This doesn't capture the actual chart on screen, so you don't get the indicators, or the size or duration, but yo…
  • To find all the available Stockcharts symbols, enter "enbridge" in the "Sharpchart" window at the top of the member's page (or any page where it appears). There is one entry which might be a preferred, ENB/PA.TO. Note Stockcharts symbols may not …
  • Scanning on intraday time frames (hourly, 5 minute, 1 minute, etc.) is not available. Depending on your subscription, you can scan daily, weekly or monthly time frames.
  • Here's one suggestion: $DJUSRE This is for commercial real estate, not home building or single family housing. I'm not sure which you want. https://us.spindices.com/indices/equity/dow-jones-us-real-estate-index https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/eq…
  • " the scan results gives today's values, no matter what historical date you are looking at ." Unfortunately, you are correct. It would be an improvement to show results as of the scan date instead of the current date. But (as you probably know, bu…
  • On Sat 12/15, I got 444 hits; sorted ascending, the first close is 50.030 the last ist 59.970. So that looks right. Maybe you are looking at an unrefreshed results page from a previous scan?
  • The !GT indicators came from DecisionPoint (Carl and Erin Swenlin), which merged with Stockcharts a while ago. You could probably ask the question on the DecisionPoint blog https://stockcharts.com/articles/decisionpoint/2018/12/two-ema-death-crosse…
