scan for stocks that close above SMA or EMA

Can I scan for stocks that close above or below SMA or EMA on the weekly chart. Also is there a way to automate scanning and receive an email with the results or do we have to run them manually? Thx

    You have to run scans manually, but you can run technical alerts, which are similar to scans, automatically and get notified in a variety of ways. Technical alerts are explained here:

    It's probably a good idea to look at some sample scans (available in the documentation) to get an idea what you can do.
