    On the advanced scan workbench page, look at the drop downs under the scan writing window and find "Indexes and ETFs", select one of the ETF options.

    I'm not sure if there is an easy way to limit the ETFs to US equity funds. You may want to scan first for all ETFs and put the results into a list. Then edit the list for things that don't interest you. Then write your scans with that list as the universe (select your list name from the Chartlists dropdown instead of the Indexes and ETFs drop down).

    Great idea, Mark! I can see that this would create exactly the universe I need. However, there'll have to be some initial heavy lifting as the first cut produces >500 ETFs! I'll see how I can minimize it further before tackling it.

    Much appreciated!

    To find ETFs you know you want, you could try key word scans against the list or the SC database like

    [group is ETF]
    and [name contains 'Gold']

    or maybe a particular sponsor

    and [name contains 'iShares']

    Or, you can exclude ones you know you don't want

    [group is ETF]
    and [name not contains 'Bond']
