Anyone Have Any Successful Daytrading Scans? - old s.c.a.n.

    There may be good comments and suggestions under this topic. However, the first thing all should know is that the scan engine does not allow intraday periods - only daily and weekly.

    In all due respect, Kevo, you are a little late in thinking scan does not allow intraday periods: One may receive personalised REAL-TIME alerts, through email, of his/her customised scans.

    ta4u, I am glad you brought this up. Yes, you do get a real-time alert at the moment a scan triggers anytime during market hours. Keep in mind that this is still for daily and weekly periods, not intraday periods. Getting a real-time alert during market hours for a daily or weekly period is not an intraday scan.

    P.S. I believe there is a limit to the number of symbols in one Technical Alert that allow real-time alerts. Maybe up to three to five? Also, I think you have to use the symbol syntax for this to work. Otherwise, you will get them before market open and after market close.

    This is semantics, Kevo... First, no need to enter a precise symbol. You get an alert for symbol matching any result you have written a formula for, up to 5 scans, you are right. Now is the alert intraday, I like to consider as is, as the alert is produced at the time (intraday) it corresponds to your formula.

    Ta4u, it sounds like you use technical alerts often. If so, do you sometimes not get alerts in a timely fashion?
