cannot develop scans using "Force"

I cannot develop any scans using Force as an indicator. Every time I try I end up with no candidates. Even a simple scan like: Force crosses above 0 today or this week results in no candidates. Force appears in the indicator list in stockcharts so why cant you scan with it?

    The volume based indicators like Force are updated end of day.

    During market hours if you run:

    [SCTR.small > 90] and [Force (13) x 0]

    you will get zero hits for today.
    Must wait until after market close because Force is only updated at end of day.

  • Hi JH, if you post the scan maybe someone can come up with some tweaks. I use it all the time, but not the way you do. You might have a hidden logic flaw or, it could be there are just no hits right now. Keep in mind, most stocks move together, so the hits can be far apart - some days you get none, others you will be flooded.
  • I tried Carlsons comment and it works. I was trying to use Force 13 with intraday market data.
    Thanks,
