Introduction

A tool to help you scan stocks broken out of various technical levels/indicators that you’ve customized and built during your experience with stock markets & technical analysis. Chartink’s scanner encompasses all the flexibility requested by our users to provide custom, accurate & fast stock scans. A few examples include listing stocks that have crossed the 200 day moving average OR having RSI values greater than 70 OR stocks closing above their open price and many more.. everything configurable by your requirements.

Filter components

Scans are made up of multiple filters, which can be added by clicking on the filter icon . A scan with a single filter looks like below:

Sample filter

Specifies to list stocks whose closing is greater than 5000, the interface relates closely to our English language grammer.

A filter is made of individual components as follows:
Stock attributes

Relates to the Open, High, Low, Close, Volume of a stock. A stock attribute would always be prefixed by a offset, specifying “are you looking for the latest value OR a day ago OR n days ago”.

Add “Stock Attribute”

Steps performed to add “Close” as a filter attribute. Notice the “Offset” component automatically added.

Offsets

Often, you may what to compare yesterdays filter component with today’s/latest, eg: Searching for stocks that have closed above their yesterdays close. Offsets help your add this flexibility to help you compare components days prior to the latest trading day.

Modify “Offset”

A offset is automatically added once you select a stock attribute or a indicator defaulting to “Latest”. To change, click on it.

Number constant

Relates to hard coded number definitions. Can be used against comparisons(greater than, less than..) operators OR any of the mathematical operations(+,-,/,*). Number constants cannot have a offset, as they’d be the same if valued for today, yesterday OR any days ago.

Indicators

You can add multiple indicators RSI, MACD, ADX, SMA, EMA.. etc and perform various computations against them to filter stocks. A common use case is comparing an indicator value with another value derived from another “Indicator” OR”Stock Attribute”. Most of the indicators require a parameter to be specified for their computations, Chartink defaults the parameter when you add them(inside brackets), you can also change the parameter of any of the indicators.

Indicator filter

Adding SMA as a indicator, notice the parameter for SMA, signifying the computations to be on the “close” stock attribute for the past 200 days. If a “Indicator” requires multiple parameters, they are separated by a comma eg:  “(close, 200)” here.

Operations

Once you have added a “Stock Attribute”/”Indicator” you’d want to perform certain operations on them(eg compare them), operations bind indicators to your custom criteria. Eg: Compare an Indicator value to a number constant OR Add indicators to themselves. Below is the format for linking operations with other filter components.

indicator operation(greater than/less than) number constant ....
stock attribute operation(equals) indicator ....
number constant operation(*, /, +, -) number constant operation(less than) indicator ...

A operation can be performed by clicking on “….”, click to view an example. Also, you can have multiple operations performed for a single filter.

Types of operations:

Comparison

Probably the most common operation that you’d use as every valid scan requires a comparison among 2 filter components. A single filter can have only a single comparison. In the below snippet, “greater than” operation denotes the relation between the 2 stock attributes(close & high) & filters stocks that have a “Close” greater than a stocks’ “Open”

Close greater than Open
Arithmetic

You can add/subtract/multiply/divide filter components to each other. This enables you build scans like “Stocks gaining x% today” (x refers to your custom percentage value, eg: 5%). The below snippet, uses 2 operations(*, greater than) one of which is a Arithmetic operation(*). Click to view an example used for Gap up/down scans.

Yesterdays close * 1.03 greater than Today's close
Crossovers

Often you want to filter stocks based on certain breakouts, which could be a result of a stock closing below a value yesterday but closing above it today(signifying a cross over). [value here refers to any indicator or stock attribute].

Close crossed over SMA(close, 50)

The above would filter Stocks that closed below the 50 day SMA yesterday, but closed above 50 day SMA today(crossing over from below yesterday).

Steps to add operations to a stock attribute:

Operation filter

Example of a operation being performed to filter stocks closing above 5,000. Note, that after adding a operation, a filter on the right is automatically added(number constant by default), which you can change, by clicking on it.

To add further operations, again click on “….”.

Multiple Filters & Filter Behavior

Normally you’d want to have multiple filters specified in a single scan. To add more than a single filter again click on the filter icon  and select a new filter to add. You can also change the behavior of multiple filters added, i.e Do you want “all OR any” of the filters to “pass OR fail”?

Multiple Filters

Filter stocks that have a “volume greater than 10,000” & “RSI indicating an overbought region, greater than 70”, also notice the behavior of the filters indicating whether ALL/ANY of the filters PASS/FAILS.

Sub-filters/Grouped filter

At times you may need to group filters & their behavior, eg: Find stocks having a volume greater than 5,000 AND also resulting in either a breakout from [200 SMA OR 100 SMA].

Multiple Filters

Translates to filtering stocks that have a volume greater than 5,000 AND ( close crossed above SMA[200] OR a close crossover above SMA[100] ).

Notice how the sub-filter group had its behavior changed to pass ANY of the two filters below it ( SMA[100] OR SMA[200] ) crossover), whereas the outer filter still requires ALL filters below it to pass, this ensures, both the volume AND the sub-filter(passing ANY of the 2 SMA’s to pass) PASS.

Functional Filters(Min/Max)

Min & Max filter components are special in way that they accept other filter components as their parameters. These functions are useful to calculate the highest/minimum values over the given number of days. These functions take 2 parameters as follows:

  1. Period – denotes the periods over which this function shall perform its computations
  2. Measure(stock attribute, indicator) – denotes the measure against which the computation shall be performed.
Multiple Filters

To find stocks that touched their 52-week high today. Notice after selecting the Max(period, measure) function its required parameters are automatically added, to change the parameters to 252 & High, simply click on the parameters. 

Any measure(indicator, stock attribute) can be selected as a parameter, “High” was choose specifically to relate to stocks at 52-week high, consisting of 252 trading days.

Examples

We’ve complied a few examples to further help you design your custom scans. Click here to view the videos for more example scans. You can also browse through the scans created by other users here.

Overbought filter:

List stocks that have their RSI(14 day) change its zone from above 70 yesterday to below 70 today, indicating they are likely to see further downside ahead.

Overbought
Oversold filter:

List stocks that have their RSI(14 day) change its zone from below 30 yesterday to above 30 today, indicating they are likely to see an upmove ahead.

List oversold stocks
Overbought OR Oversold filter:

List stocks that have a crossover OR a crossbelow in ANY of the above 2 zones.

List overbought OR oversold stocks
Gapup filter:

Listing stocks that have a open greater than 3% of its yesterday’s close. If a stock closed at 100 INR yesterday, Its open today should be greater than 103, denoted by “1 day ago Close * 1.03”

List gapup stocks
Gapdown filter

Listing stocks that have a open less than 3% of its yesterday’s close. If a stock closed at 100 INR yesterday, Its open today should be less than 97, denoted by “1 day ago Close * 0.97”

List gapdown stocks
Bullish stocks filter:

Often a crossover of 50 day SMA over 200 day SMA is treated as a bullish signal.

List bullish stocks

    I am a regular user of Chartink EOD charts. I visit daily for research and study stocks. According to me this is best website for investors and traders.

  3. If I run a simple query like “Latest Close Greater than number 500”, nothing happens.

    However, when all this starts working, it would be a fantastic tool.

    One suggestion: Can you provide a facility to apply these filters to NIFTY stocks, JUNIOR NIFTY Stocks, CNX IT Stocks, etc?

    Thanks,

    Bubun.

    1. Yes, there’s a option to change the segment: “Stock passes all of the below filters in cash segment :”, click on the “Cash” once on the scanner page to change it to “Futures” segment

      1. Thank you ver much sir for your quick reply
        I think the scanner needs a tweak like say like I scan
        “10 days ago CloseLess than 30 days ago Close”
        it scans all the days instead of only “working days”
        results are different on friday evening and different on Monday Early Morning.
        please look into it, Thanks

        1. On Monday, if you tried during Market hours, after 9:30am, the “latest” would refer to Monday, as Scans are updated during Market hour with a delay of 15 minutes

          1. agree, but the “10 days ago CloseLess” line counts saturday and sunday aswel and narrow downs the results…

          2. No, only Market trading days are considered, so, “10 days ago”, would include 10 market trading days(excluding all holidays). Can you give me a example scan for the issue you are noticing?

  25. Can you please guide me “Bullish Engulfing” and “Bearish Engulfing” candle stick pattern in live market.

        1. The scan that I shared, would have it results updated during market hours(15 minute delay). You can either keep the screen open and click on “Run scan” every minute to get the latest results Or just refresh the page

      1. TataGloabal is accured 10:30 am Bearish Engulfing pattern that time stock price is 156.20.
        Hexaware is accured 09:55 am Bullish Engulfing pattern that time stock price is 243

        This type scanning needed.

        1. The scan that I shared, would have it results updated during market hours(15 minute delay). You can either keep the screen open and click on “Run scan” every minute to get the latest results Or just refresh the page

  26. I want to find stocks whose Latest Low is within 10 % from the bottom of the previous 5-day Max-Min range of High Low.
    i.e I want to scan for [Today’s Low – 1 Day ago Min(5,Low)] Less than equal to [o.1 *{ (1day ago Max (5,High)-(1day ago Min(5,Low)}]
    This requires bracketing to specify order and relationship of the arithmetic operations. I find I am not able to implement such a scan.

  27. Dear Sir,
    How to find out daily morning after pre-open time ( 9:08 am ) ichimoku span line above opening stocks?

    pls guide me.

  28. Dear Sir,
    How to setup when the senkou span A crosses from below to above the senkou span B.

    Thank You sir.

  29. Dear Sir,
    Will you please guide on making a scanner for stocks
    1) above Rs 25
    2) closes above its 30 days High
    3) weekly or Monthly High Volume

    Thanks
    Sanjay

  30. ………
    1) above Rs 25
    2) closes above its 30 days High
    3) weekly or Monthly High Volume
    4) 2 days ago close less than 30 days ago
    5) 3 days ago close less than 30 days ago
    6) 4 days ago close less than 30 days ago
    7) 5 days ago close less than 30 days ago
    8) 6 days ago close less than 30 days ago
    9) 7 days ago close less than 30 days ago

  31. Dear sir,
    Chartink is superb website. We are identify stocks every time refresh website, otherwise you can provide any SMS service for our scanning pattern.

    1. If the open is 100, “Latest Open Greater than number * 0.01” you mean, the open is greater than the number * 0.01, if you put 100 in place of the number, it would be 100 * 0.01 = 1 ( 100 > 1 )

  32. Hello Akash,

    Kudos, brilliant website, really very useful, thanks!!

    On EOD basis, I want to scan those stocks which are in a 2% distance of the 20D High / Low and 55 D High/Low.

    Also I want to scan those stocks which hit the 20D and 55D high /low in today’s trade.

    Thanks in anticipation!!

    Thanks!!

  33. This is the best site for screening of stocks. Using this site we can screen stock considering daily time frame. My request is, can u add weekly time frame also. Like, weekly macd cross over, weekly over sold, weekly moving average etc. That would be very helpful for long term investors.

  34. your site is doing a wonderful job Cheers!!!….I just had a query, the site says ‘Custom Scans now updated during market hours’, what is the estimated time lag for updating the charts as compared to actual market??

  35. pls improve delaytime in data from 15 minutes to 5miutes so that its more beneficial for trader as well as investor.

  36. It is wonderful . Please keep it up. Suppose I create a scanner viz open = high and run it by 9.30 am, will it show the current day details ? Is it possible to provide EOD Heikenashi charts in your charting platform? That will be very useful. Good job and carry on . All the best to you.

    1. You should get the current day’s data by 9:25-9:30am daily (as we have 15 minutes delayed data from NSE). We’ll be adding “heikenashi ” soon in our EOD charts.

  37. I want to create a scan, which should give current monthly RSI is greatest in past 12 months.
    As per your guide lines, I have written the following formula.
    Monthly Max(12, Monthly RSI (14)) equals Monthly RSI (14)
    Is the above formula is correct ?
    If I am wrong, kindly write a correct formula for me.
    Thanks in advance.
    Bhushan

  38. Is there any way to use close price even when scan run during market hours, I don’t want to use current prices, instead want to refer yesterday close always, so if I run after current day mkt close then it should use current day close otherwise should refer previous day close price? is it possible?

      1. but if i use “1 day ago close” and run same scan after mkt close then won’t it refer previous day close, while I want it to refer current day close when run on current day after mkt close.

        1. Yes, currently that’s the only way possible.

          We’ll be soon adding a date filter, allowing you to run the scan as per a given date(the latest would refer to the data as of the given date)

  39. This is one of the most comprehensive filter tools available for free at the moment. Great job!
    I did have one question though. After running my scan, I am given a few columns most of which are unimportant to me, while the important columns are missing. Do you guys allow customization of the columns on the Result Table?

    Thanks.

    1. Currently there’s no provision to have custom columns. We’ll plan on adding that in future though. Any specific columns you are looking for?

  40. Dear Sir,

    website not updated why sir?

    Pls update website immediate sir.

    we are miss wonderful website.

  41. Dear Akash,

    Thank you so much for this lovely website, I refer this website to many to use it.

    Please include Triple Exponential Moving Average (TEMA) for a Customized Scanner as an indicator along with Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

    Thank you,

    Regards

    Vishnu

    1. Dear Akash,

      Thank you so much for this lovely website, I refer this website to many to use it.

      Please include Triple Exponential Moving Average (TEMA) for a Customized Scanner/Screener as an indicator along with Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

      Thank you,

      Regards

      Vishnu

      1. Dear Akash,

        Thank you so much for your response. Eagerly waiting to see Customised TEMA in Scanner & Screener.

        Warm Regards

        Vishnu

      2. Hi Akash,

        Can I expect TEMA in updates on Scanner/Screener by this month end? It would be a lovely tool to work on as compared to EMA. Kindly update ASAP. Thank you so much.

        Regards

        Vishnu

        1. We are working on adding more indicators along with TEMA, I can’t commit on a date yet as we’ve prioritized our user’s feedback by the most received ones, but in the next few weeks we shall add that. I would surely keep you updated on the same.

  42. chartink is a great website after started using my trading methodology has changed totally, thanks for the team.
    I do have a question what is the difference between crossed above and greater than on closing basis because I’m getting two different results I couldn’t understand

    1. Thanks for your feedback. “close crossed above 50” means the close was below 50 yesterday and has closed above 50 today(indicating a crossover).

  43. Sir,
    What is the difference between “7 Days ago” and “1 week ago”
    as when I put this line >
    “Volume” Greater than “7 Days ago”
    and
    “Volume” Greater than “1 Week ago”
    the results are different…

    Thanks

    1. “n days ago” refers to daily candles whereas “n weeks ago” refers to the weekly candles. You can change the range of the candles shown in our EOD Charts from its default to “daily” to “weekly” or “monthly” and refer these candles within our scanner with “n weeks/months ago”

  44. Dear Sir,
    It is a Marvelous Charting tool, Thanks a lot
    my doubt is in editing “How to insert new line in between”

    Regards
    Ramnagaraj

  45. sir, when using ema crossover scan it gives me name of a stock but when i look that stock on zerodha kite it shows no crossover has happen. why is that

    1. I’ll suggest you verify the crossover on our charts. For EMA we considering datapoints for more than a year, I’m not sure how its done in other charting sites

  46. Hi Akash,

    How can we know a Crossover instantly? Is there any method to detect crossover immediately?

    Regards

    Vishnu

    1. You can run the scan during market hours to identify crossover that happen while the markets are open (data to the scan is delayed by 15 minutes same for the our Charts)

  47. Dear Sir,

    sir please please make such screener.

  56. Hi Akash,

    Once again, thanks a million for providing one of the best scanners available in the market; that too for free.

    Had a request that would help a lot in intraday scanning, i.e. selecting “Today” Candle for Intraday Scans.

    Please consider implementing it, that will take away need to duplicate code/criteria setting many numbers of time.

    1. In order to explain my request more specifically as to how “Today” option can help reduce writing similar code numerous time in Intraday Scan; currently, there is option of 0,-1,-2,-3,-4 and so on for Intraday times i.e. for 5, 10, 15, 30, etc. So in case of crossovers during any intraday time frame right now we need to define every candle from that time frame to identify the crossover. But in case if “Today” option is available, then it would be fairly easy to define crossover for any intraday time frame through one line code as against per candle. I hope I have been able to explain my point.

      Thank you very much, Akash.

      1. Thanks for your feedback. I understand your query and we shall soon be adding a “as of date” filter, to run your scans as of a given date rather than the default of “Today”

  57. Can u pls tell me if it’s possible to find which stocks gave a bullish supertrend in the 15 mins or 1 hour timeframe charts?
    Also is it possible to find out which stocks rsi crossed 50 in 15 mins or 1 hour timeframe charts?
    I need this real-time during market hours. (15 mins delay is ok)
    If yes… Please provide the scanner formula.

  58. Could you please add EMA based Keltner Channel with ATR band as style as an indicator, also add the same available in the scanner as well?

  59. Akash sir ( team chartink) thank you very much for making such very useful tool and quick reply for any query . sir i have few addition if you feel considerable 1) add open interest data 2) same technical tool with fundamental data for scan as like in screener.in 3) make it live real time chart and auto refresh live scanner ( obviously WE READY TO PAY AFFORDABLE CHARGES )

    NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS WORLD WHICH IS PRECIOUS EXCEPT CHARTINK.COM.

    Today i thing site is under maintenance as scanner not showing result from noon to till now evening 6.30 pm , SIR PLEASE I REQUEST YOU THAT DO MAINTENANCE AFTER CLOSING MARKET.
    THANK YOU CHARTINK TEAM.

    1. Thanks for your feedback. Yes, we are working on additional fundamental fields within our scanner. Also, we shall avoid maintenance during market hours in future

      1. thank u sir for your reply …..in chartink there was cross over so its seen in screener … i think some difference in calculation of super trend . but no problem i love chartink.com. my all time best website. lots of star for team*************************** thanks .

  60. hello sir , today i face problem regarding hdfc bank 60 min chart as it shows price is cross super trend 7,3 upward but when i check on other online chart like sharekhan and tredercokpit super trend is still bellow prize. is there any problem with super trend formula data calculation . pls reply

  61. wow, what a superb tool for traders and investor…..I feel blessed to find this website with screener and hessel free / convenient. Cant believe life can be so simpler and without spending a penny for the same.

  62. FIRST OF ALL ITS GOOD TECHNICAL SCANNER !!
    is there any delay during live market ? I want to scan first 5 min( 9.15am to 9.20am) tick so can i scan at 9.21 am?

    1. There’s a maximum delay of 5 minutes & a minimum delay of 0 mins, data is updated every 5 minutes, so if you want to scan for stocks between 9:15 & 9:20, run the scanner around 9:21am.

  63. Your design of the website is superb …..I have few requirements, please let me know there feasibility.

    1) Back Testing.

    2) Multiple watch lists or grouping of stocks in watchlist

    3) Adding stocks to watch list from scans

    4) Bar Count function which can compared.
    Ex :: Bar count (EMA50 Crossed EMA200 last time) > 10

    5) Max and Min functions accepting expression as inputs for number of bars
    EX :: Max( Bar count (EMA50 Crossed EMA200 last time) , High)

    6) Date at particular event
    Ex :: DATEAT(HIGHVALPOSSINCE(RSI(14) crossed above 30,HIGH,1))

    7) Max and Min values since a particular Date,Date can be arrived by Date function.

    Hope i’m clear in my requirements.
    Please respond on each point on feasibility and by when can we expect.

    1. We have recently added the ability to have multiple watchlists and run scans from a particular watchlist.

      I read thru all your inputs and many of them sound good, we shall try implementing your inputs in the coming few months

  64. Sir, Is it possible to BackTest our scanners so that we can be sure whether that scanner is good for the selected stock or not?
    If that is possible, please guide me how to use that.
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    1. Currently you’ll need to manually change the “latest” to n days ago to backtest your scans, we shall soon be adding the ability to run back dated scans

  65. Hi Akash,

    Have noticed that scans that are NOT marked as Public are also appearing in the suggested Public scans list (Related Screeners List that appears below scan results). Request you to please check and fix it if you could.

    As always, appreciate your contribution to the community.

    Regards
    Sameer

  66. Hi Admin,
    thank you for such a great screener, i have a problem finding values how to screen some thing like this … 20 SMA is 5% greater that 50 SMA and 50 SMA is 5% greater than 100 SAM kindly explain thanks Shahjahan

  67. Hi akash, Greetings.
    it would be helpful if we can add multiple stocks in watch list at a go…can we do it in present scanner.

  68. Thanks for Mutiple watchlist.

    Please look into providing option to bulk upload Stocks into this screeners from EXCEl or CSV or like google finance upload option where we can copy and past mutiple stocks in search box and we get all this stocks added into watchlist.

      1. Thanks for Picking it up.

        I like the way you are ready to adapt to user requirements and update. Great Job

        One more thing i want to highlight
        -You would be saving all the requirements that are coming from users,If you can publish the todo list of changes, it would be of great help for us to Understand what is coming and people also can give suggestion once we have the view of list.

        1. Sure, we’ll add a feature tracking system, probably using JIRA to help user’s keep a track of todo items and vote for them

  69. Akash,
    Thank you very much for providing such a wonderful screening ability, I am in process of creating 15 min ORB scanner , I need list of stock when it break first 15 min candle anytime during the day. Could you please help me here

      1. Thanks Akash for quick response. I looked all the ORB scanner but I am still not able to understand the logic how first 15 min ORB scanner works when price breaks 15 min range any time during the day, how we can capture the first 15 min range in query. e.g stock ABC first 15 min range (9:15-9:30) broke on higher side after 12:30 how should I write such query as offset is not known in advance(it can be anytime any candle after 9:30). I look all the query but coundnt find. Following query looks interesting but not sure if it will do the job or not

        LatestCloseGreater than[-1] 15 minuteHigh

        so if I run this query at 12:32, it will give me only those stock where latest price at 12:32 is higher than 12:15 candle.

        Correct me if I am wrong and help me in capturing first 15 min range in query.

        I also heard from someone that you have paid services with more advance future but I coudnt find any option can you provide me more detail on that.

        Thanks,

        1. You correct, currently to refer to the first 15 minute candle of the day, you’ll need to manually need to specify the offset -5 or -10 depending on when you are running the scan during the day, we shall be soon adding a function to help you with this.

          We plan on having premium services providing alerts via SMS/Email along with a additional features, we are in the process of finalizing it, once done, I’ll surely share the details with you

  70. Akash ,

    What is the latest close while markets are open. If I use latest close and intraday offset e.g [-1] 5 min close, how latest close will work here

    Thanks,
    Ashwin

    1. Latest close shall refer to the CMP whereas, -1 5 minute close refers to the previous candle on a 5 minute candlestick chart. So, if the current time is 12:30pm, “latest close” equals “12:30pm” & -1 5 minute refers to the close at 12:25pm

      1. Thanks Akash for detailed explanation so If I use ** Latest close and [0] XX minute close **** both would refer the same price, right ?
        is this correct understanding ?

        Thanks,
        Ashwin

          1. Cool, if I use volume instead of close with latest and [-1] 5 minutes than , latest volume shall give me day volume till point and [-1] 5 shall give me previous 5 minute volume, please confirm?

  71. Hello Akash …i have question related to intraday scanning…suppose i want to scan SUPERTREND crossed below first 5 min candle in live market at around 11AM its difficult to scan such situation as I have to count number of 5 min candles on chart and then replace this count no in place of
    [0]5min….instead it would be of great help if we can replace [0]5 min with time like 9:15 candle crossed below 5min close

    1. Yes, we don’t have a function for the same recently, so the only way possible is to count the no. of candles backwords until 11 am. We’ll soon making on adding this thru a function

  72. Hi,

    I was trying to create a crossover for Stochatic for latest crossovers. I have created below scan, but it does not seem to give the correct data. IT shows crossovers which are older like 15 or 20 minutes back

    Stock passesallof the below filters in cashsegment :
    LatestSlow Stochastic %K(10,3)Crossed aboveLatestSlow Stochastic %D(10,3)
    Modify parameter

    1. I’ll recommend you verify the breakouts within our Charts, as the formulea used should match with place you are viewing the breakouts in scans.

  73. Hi Akash,
    Wonderful efforts, best scanner seen so far.

    Need your help in creating new scanner with the following
    5 Day Absolute Price Change > 100 Day Standard Deviation
    5 Day Average Volume < 75% of 5 Day Average Volume

    1. The first filter wouldn’t be possible as of now as we don’t have a std deviaation function. For the sencond condition, did you mean 10 days avg volume < 75 % of 5 days avg?

  74. Thanks admin, i would like to screen some thing like, the prices are ranging between 20% to 30% for past 6 months. also kindly do let me know about the use of bracket value and how to apply it.
    thanks

  75. Hello sir,
    Sir i want to creat a scanner in 1hr chart in which cmp close above previous higher high in buy side and in sell side cmp is close below previous lower low. Please help me.
    Thanks.

  76. Hi Akash,

    Aren’t these two quires same? Why am I getting different result set?

    Query 1:
    Stock passes all of the below filters in cash segment :
    Latest Close Greater than 1 day ago Close
    Latest Close Greater than 2 days ago Close
    Latest Close Greater than 3 days ago Close
    Latest Close Greater than 4 days ago Close
    Latest Close Greater than 5 days ago Close

    AND

    Query 2
    Stock passes all of the below filters in cash segment :
    Latest Close Greater than 1 day ago Max(4,1 day ago Close )

    1. Your second query, should be:
      Latest Close Greater than 1 day ago Max(4, Latest Close )

      As we want to refer to the current close for a day within the max function

  77. Dear Akashji,

    I want to create a scanner for a list of stocks which have crossed the 200 EMA in the 5 day 5 min chart today. Also today’s volume should be higher than yesterday’s volume. Also can i get live alerts for the same on my email. Please help in creating the same.

      1. Dear Mohan,

        Thanks for the screener.

        Just wanted to know if i run the scanner at EOD, will i be able to get the list of all the stocks that have passed through the screener today.

          1. Dear Akash

            I really like the way you are assiisting us in various queries
            I need your help to set up a scanner for BUY volumes over a period eg last 5 days or last 4 weeks

            Regards
            Dhiren

          2. You’d first need to identify what conditions/filters would identify a stock with increasing BUY volumes, would it be closing positive with rising volumes? OR close up by a fixed % over the last few days

  78. Dear Akashji,

    I have created one screener in which the parameters is weekly CCI crossed above 0. If any day i miss the screener and if i want the results of the screener on any other day how can i get that?

  79. I discovered the website today. Registered and created a few filters/scans. Impressive. I would like to know how to confine my scans to Nifty 50 or Nifty 100. Please guide.

  80. Hi,

    Charts are static as of now.can you please provide
    1)Date range option on charts(Ex :: want 1 year daily candles starting from Jan 2016 to dec 2016 only)
    2)Horizontal movement of chart to view last 5 years data with constant page layout
    this will be helpful to validate strategy on past data.

  81. Can you suggest any available scanners or how I can create a scanner to filter stocks with 45% slope over last year or couple years ? For eg, to filter stocks like Bajaj Finance, Vakrangee who have a consistent upward graph for last year/s ?

    1. You could use a min function on a monthly timeframe and check if the minimum % gain in a month is more than 5% every month for the past 1-3 years

  82. Thanking you very much for creating so much useful site. Please let us know if you start any premium services.
    Is it possible to get a screener for Double bottom chart?

  83. SIR,

  85. hi sir
    i want intraday scan of 15 min time period for FNO stocks
    1) stocks crossing ichimoku cloud above and below
    unable to set scaner kindly guide

  86. Hi,

    As of now i can make markings on Charts and save that externally, but do you have any plan in implementing saving of studies online so that when i open that chart again, i can see my markings with new candles data.

  87. Hi,

    One more thing.
    On 30 min chart your first bar is from 9:15 to 9:45 and last bar is from 3:15 to 3:30 right
    Can you change this to first bar is from 9:15 to 9:30 and last bar is from 3:00 to 3:30.

    As most of the charts that i use have that format(Google Finance,Moneycontrol, Traderscockpit etc)

    Could you please look into this.

    1. We’ve kept it starting from 9:15 because Indian markets don’t open at the start of a hour, most of the markets world-wide start from the start of a hour(eg: 9:0am). The calculations from 9:15-9:30am wouldn’t be accurate enough to consider in a 30 minute candle period

      1. But if select [0] 30Min in you screen after market, it is considering 3 to 3:30 PM, but once we open chart, we have bar from 3:15 to 3:30 only, its confusing

        can you move as requested above

  88. Dear Akash

    I notice that when I use the below query “Weekly CLOSE crossed above SMA (Close, 20)” it does not give me the closing price above Middle Bollinger band. What is the problem with my query??

    Thanks
    Dhiren

    1. If you want to refer to the WEEKLY Middle bollinger band, use the below filter instead

      Weekly CLOSE crossed above WEEKLY SMA (Close, 20)

  89. Dear Akash
    I want your help to define a query for positive volume ie increasing volume over a specific time frame ( daily, weekly, monthly). I have tried using moving averages but cannot achieve the desired result. Thanks
    Dhiren

  90. Hi ,

    I need some help in writting below code

    On a 30 min chart apply RSI and 50 EMA, now i want to know all stocks that met below criteria
    1) close of any 30 min bar today should have crossed below 30 min EMA 50
    2) MAX RSI value between (bar closed below EMA 50) and (bar closed above EMA 50 before to this closing below EMA 50) should be 70.

    1. In other words,

      Stocks Close should have crossed below EMA 50(of 30 min) today for the first time after RSI has crossed below 70(this can be today, yesterday or so on)

  91. Hi ,
    I am looking for simple moving average (SMA) 9 crossingover SMA 20 in hourly chart and in monthly chart.Could you please help?
