According to the Technical Indicators page, many of the Indicators are capable of accepting an additional "expression" in their parameters.

For example, the Bollinger Bands section uses this description in part:

**The values of the upper and lower Bollinger Band lines. The bands are calculated using the values of the given expression, such as “close”, “volume” or “rsi(14)”.**

Upper Bollinger Band (Upper BB)

Syntax:

Upper BB(nPeriods, StdDev, exp)

So this means that you could scan for the Upper Bollinger Band(20,2) of the RSI(14) in the example. and [Upper BB(20,2,RSI(14)) > ??]

Just something to keep in mind. I haven't tested all of these indicators in this manner yet to see if they actually work as expected but,

according to the Technical Indicators page, the following Technical Indicators are capable of accepting an additional "expression" in their parameters.

Upper Bollinger Band (Upper BB)

Lower Bollinger Band (Lower BB)

Bollinger BandWidth (BB Width)

Bollinger's %B Indicator

Coppock Curve (Coppock)

PMO Line

PMO Signal

Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO)

Double Exponential Moving Average (DEMA)

Hull Moving Average (HullMA)

Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA)

Simple Moving Average (SMA)

Exponential Moving Average (EMA)

MACD Line (MACD Line)

MACD Signal (MACD Signal)

MACD Histogram (MACD Hist)

Upper Moving Average Envelope (Upper MA Env)

Lower Moving Average Envelope (Lower MA Env)

Upper Exponential Moving Average Envelope (Upper EMA Env)

Lower Exponential Moving Average Envelope (Lower EMA Env)

PPO Line (PPO Line)

PPO Signal (PPO Signal)

PPO Histogram (PPO Hist)

Rate of Change (ROC)

Rate of Change Signal (ROC Signal)

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

Slope (Slope)

Standard Deviation (Std Deviation)

Triple Exponential Moving Average (TEMA)

TRIX (TRIX)

Then, at the end of the ful listing for Technical Indicators they add the following which aren't available to use in scans

Pivot Points

Price Relative

RS-Ratio and RS-Momentum

RVOL - Price Plot
