catching up on missed scans, (past days)
Suppose you have a simple scan you run every day like this
[type is stock] and [sma(20,volume) > 1000000]
and [Today's MACD Line(12,26,9) x Today's MACD Signal(12,26,9)]
and [[exchange is NYSE] or [exchange is NASD]]
This just looks for MACD crosses that occurred today.
Let's suppose that you did not turn this into an alert to be mailed to you
You get the flu, or something else happens and you are away and unable to run your scan.
How do you change the scan to get the results from the days you missed. Changing the "starting from" parameter does not work. Is there any way to do a for next loop incrementing the date? How do you catch up on scans you may have missed. Thanks
The other thing to remember is, the charts returned are for the CURRENT date, NOT the date of the scan. So for instance, if you scan for the 13th on the 15th, you will get a chart dated the 15th for the stocks that crossed over on the 13th. The crossover will be three bars back. Hope that helps.
