Moving Average Crossovers

How would you write a scan searching for an 8 EMA crossing above a 34 EMA that happens during the course of the today? The [EMA (8, close) X EMA (34. close)] scan only returns results at the end of the day, correct?


  • The scan engine considers the most recent intraday data update to be the closing data for the day, so you could run a daily scan intraday and get crossover results. But, the results might not be the same for the next intraday update, or at the end of the day. So you have to decide if the intraday results are "valid" if the day is not yet over, meaning the data period is not complete.

  • Ok, thanks.
