hpw to scan for gap ups
how to write gap scan?
Gaps are a pre-defined scan - on the member's dashboard page, find the Member's Tools box (upper left), slide down to "Reports & More" - read down the list to find "Gaps".
Here is the code:
[type = stock] AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 40000] AND [Daily Low > Yesterday's Daily High * 1.026]
The important part is
[low > 1 day ago high]
You can add more conditions from the drop downs on the Scan Workbench.
If you type Gap into the Search box on this forum, you will find several threads discussing the topic.
