Specify month end in the scan

I want to write a scan to buy stocks at the end of the month when certain conditions are met.

How do I say, today is month end,....... then instructs stockcharts' scan ?

    A scan cannot buy stocks for you (i.e. send instructions to your broker), if that's what you meant.

    If you run the scan after the close on the actual last day of the month, and before the next session open, you don't need to do anything special. Just run the scan.

    If you run the scan during or after the first session of the next month, then you need to specify the end of month date on the calendar drop down above the scan window, where it says, Starting 0 trading days.... click on the "0" and a calendar appears. Select a date. Then select "last market close" in the second drop down. Then run the scan.
