  • The scan engine returns only symbols, not numbers. However, on the scan results page, you do see a number that represents the number of hits for your scan.

    You could use the ROC( ) indicator to capture the per cent change over a period of time.

    For a month, you could use ROC(20) or 21. For a quarter, probably 63 or so.

  • Thank you Mark, I will follow the links and start learning . have a great day
