Why doesn't my SCAN always work when trying to run an Advanced SCAN.
There is nothing wrong with my formulas, sometimes it works just fine but too many times nothing happens….it doesn't RUN the SCAN.
You could have a logic problem with your scan.
Also, your scan could be restricted to the point where no results are returned, or there simply may not be results at the moment. In this case, try back testing by changing the trading days ago field (spelling?) at top from 0 to consecutively higher numbers.
Without seeing the actual scan, it's impossible to speculate what the problem might be, or if there actually is a problem.
Not every scan will get hits every day, sometimes no hits is a legitimate and correct scan result. However without seeing the actual scan in question, no one can answer that question. If you are unwilling to share the code for your scan, just change the values to make it meaningless. As long as the code you post gives you the problem then someone here can probably figure out what the problem is.
If you are using the basic scan interface just hit the update criteria button and then copy and paste the URL link here. It will look something like this.
If you are using the advanced scan interface just copy and paste the coding, it would look like this.
[type = stock] AND [country = US] AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 40000]
