and [(CLOSE/(OPEN-CLOSE))*100 < 1.5]


  • Whats Wrong
  • I found my error.. should be [ type = stock] and [country is US]
    and [SCTR >80]
    and [CLOSE/[OPEN-CLOSE]*100 < 1.5]
    and [ATR(14) > 1.5]
  • SMCI was down .66 percent but did not appear on my scan. How come?

    SMCI Close = 579.63 Open-Close = 12.89 579.63/12.89 = 44.97 44.97 * 100 = 4497 4497 is not < 1.5

    The -0.66 is the % difference between the close and 1 days ago close

    You may want to consider PctChange (defaults in like this)

    and [PctChange(10,close) > 10]

    or PctDiff (defaults in like this)

    and [PctDiff(close,sma(50,close)) < 5]
  • Imkwin, what should be the syntax to get the .66 percent down for SMCI?
  • What I want is to scan for stocks that is down less than 2 percent same day in real time. So what would be the syntax?

    You are only looking at today then and not considering any prior periods so you should be comparing the OPEN instead of the Close in your

    and [CLOSE/[OPEN-CLOSE]*100 < 1.5]
    and [OPEN/[OPEN-CLOSE]*100 < 1.5]

    The value for SMCI is around 2.18 doing that. Remember, the -0.66 is close compared to 1 period ago close so you won't be able to use that as a ballpark for why it's showing or not showing on the scan.

    Syntax for the -0.66

    and [PctChange(1,close) < 1]
  • Heres my Scan on TC2000 and I got SMCI to appear....(C/O-C) *100 <1.5
  • Imkwin, thanks I got the correct syntax..[ type = stock] and [country is US]
    and [SCTR >80]
    and [CLOSE/OPEN-[CLOSE]*100 < 1.5]
    and [ATR(14) > 1.5]
