Can you specify an index (e.g. $INDU) in the parameters on a technical indicator scan?
I'm trying to setup a scan using CCI, Slow Stoch %K, and %B. The scan for equities is working just fine. I now want to add one additional condition to it. I only want it to return long signals when Slow Stoch %K for $INDU is about %D, and only want it to return short signals when the opposite is true. Is there any way to add that check? I haven't found any way to specify that I want the Slow Stoch indicator to apply specifically to $INDU. (Hope that makes sense.)
Yes, I know I can do this manually by setting up a long scan and a short scan, and run one or the other based on the current chart. I'm trying to backtest, though, and being able to include it in the scan itself will greatly simplify the backtesting.
