Plus DI and Minus DI crossover scan
Hi, I'm currently helping my grandad but I don't have the necessary coding skills just yet.
All he wants is a scan to alert him on the day when the Minus DI and Plus DI cross over. I tried [Plus DI(14) = Minus DI(14)] first (although [Plus DI(14) >= Minus DI(14)] works) and then a few of the True Range indicators from the stockcharts school but at this point it's all just a little confusing.
Any help or advice would be appreciated!
As a granddad myself, I found using the resources in the Help on StockCharts, in conjunction with the this forum, provided all the help I needed to get comfortable with the scan coding.
Also, a great way to "learn" how StockCharts does it is to go to the Predefined Scan page. Click on ANY of the Predefined Scans and in the upper right corner is a link that says Click here to edit this scan.
This will open that scan, in the workbench, so that you can see the actual code used for that scan. You can then modify that code and save it to your account for use as you see fit.
