How to create a scan for the 'max stock price in 2015'?
I am trying to scan for the max prices of certain stocks in 2015.
"max stock price in 2015" is a number, not a symbol, so you can't write a scan for that.
It sounds like you already know the symbols you want. To find the max price for those symbols, you have a couple of choices.
You could put the symbols in a chart list, or just enter them in the "Create a chart" window at the top of the SC home page and then use the "Inspect" function, or you could download the "Past Data" (see link under chart - subscription only) into Excel and use the max function in Excel.
Note, the data for a default format symbol (e.g., IBM, AAPL) is adjusted for splits and dividends, so the results you get for your symbols may not be a price where the stock actually traded on a particular date. If you want unadjusted data, put an underscore ( _ ) in front of the symbol (e.g. _IBM, _AAPL).
P.S. I am not certain whether data is adjusted for non-US stocks (I am a Stockcharts user in the US, I don't work at Stockcharts) - you should test each symbol with and without the underscore and compare the data.
@gord , do you know the answer to this question?
But u could always send in a question to support.
