Price near MA, Slope parameter, scan for a cross in a time range, and types
I have questions about four things, but they're all related to a scan I'm trying to build. Also, this is the second time I've typed this, but I'm pretty sure I inadvertently deleted the page before I could post it. So if it appears as well, my apologies in advance. :-)
I want to tell when price is above but descending to near a particular MA. Is it possible to phrase an argument to tell when price is a certain % or amount from the average? I already have the argument for price is above an MA.
To tell price is descending, I know I can do a few days < more days back. Does the Slope parameter also get used for that? Can Slope apply to MAs as well? Can Slope work on Volume?
If I want to set a scan range to tell that an MA cross happened within a certain amount of time prior, including "at least this far back"? (In case I want to know that the cross happened, say, in the last two months, but before two weeks ago)?
Didn't I see a page that lists what the possibilities for scan parameters are, such as what can be if using "type," what are the types that can be scanned for? Sometimes I want to specify ETFs, for instance.
