scanning indicator with overlay

i have set up the Force on my chart as an indicator with the Keltner channels as overlay. i am trying to create a scan where the force (negative) would cross keltner channels (lower channel) moving up. Would someone help with some recommendation as i am not getting this right. i have

and [force(30) x Lower Kelt Chan(26,2,26)]

Thanks in advance.


  • As far as I know, it's not documented that you can scan for an indicator of an indicator, but I played around a little, and this seems to work:

    and [Force(30) <0]

    and [Force(30) x Lower Kelt Chan(20,2,10, Force(30))]

    Keltner Channel by default looks at price, so you have to make it look at your indicator (Force). It turns out you can do that by making Force the last term for Keltner. Who knew?
