Pre market Scanning at stockcharts.com
I really like the classic Stockcharts.com templates. Let's establish that. The original work done years ago was leading edge. I have been in the market since 1982.. I am somewhat taken aback how recently I feel that stockcharts.com has lost it's fighting, competitive spirit. I am using ThinkorSwim platform, which completely outperforms stockcharts.com -except in the clarity and precision of the classic charts-which I still use religiously and loyally to monitor my positions. I am completely happy with that aspect of stockcharts.com. A. Hill and the boys did a great development job.. way back when.
I have been hopeful that someone has focused on developing a good pre-market scans for identifying stocks that are prime candidates for trading:
(It seems very much lacking in stockcharts.com horizon that G.Rose would devote so much time to what I consider the very inadequate ACAP stockcharts). this last your and never mention how important it is to survey the before pre market activity that the dark pools of money and the Wall Street traders are creating and tracking to get jump on all the retail traders:
Question 1: Is pre market stocks information included in the scans? Please, I hope someone come up with a straight answer..
Question 2: How precisely with the Advanced scanner can one create the following : A screen for all stocks above a certain Prices during the pre-market period with either trading range or even a Gap % of > or < 4% from the previous day close (previously MarkD moderator posted a msg
to quote:" but assuming pre-market data is treated like regular session data, the most recent intraday update would be considered "end of day" (as odd as that sounds). So, you should be able to run a gap scan during pre-market hours - open > 1 day ago close. Or, low > 1 day ago close."
But unfortunately, that sentence is not clarify for me what the scan language should be to accomplish that..
Question 3: How precisely can I create a volume screen line to show me a pre-market volume that is equal or greater than 20% of average day volume, showing essentially what alert traders are doing to accumulate stealth positions that they will build and enter into with even more money.

With appreciation in advance.
