    Hi Markd you seem like an expert in scanning here. Could you possibly look at my post in scanning forum about price above ema for consecutive days? Thanks!

      Hi scanzscanz, I did see your post. lmkwin's method is probably the simplest. It just needs proper syntax - brackets around each statement, and parentheses and parameters for the ema function. So the first couple of lines would look like this:

      and [close > EMA(4, close)] // test day 1 current day
      and [1 days ago close > 1 days ago EMA(4, close)] // test day 2

      etc.

      P.S.

      The first line of your scan would specify the stocks you want to look at - the "universe" the scan engine will search. For instance:

      [group is sp500]
      and [ close >... ]
      etc.

      Note the first line of the scan never begins with "and" but every other line always begin with "and" except the last line if it is a "rank by" statement.

      If you haven't already, you should review the videos and tutorials on scan writing, and look at the pre-defined scans to get a sense for the rules of syntax.
