How to scan NSE Future stocks?

We have added a segement filter that can be modified in the top-most filter, refer the below image:

How to Search Screeners?

You can view our screeners homepage to search & view scans created by other users.

How to run scan for stocks in Watchlist

After you’ve logged in and added stocks in your watchlist, you can change the segement to “Watchlist” which would then run the scan for stocks listed in your watchlist.

How to perform Weekly/Monthly scans?

After a indicator has been added, click on the “Latest” prefix right before it and change it to any of the “Weekly” range group, eg: “Weekly”, “1 week ago” and so on… The same applies for Monthly filters

How to run Intraday scans?

After you have added a indicator, you can click on the “latest” prefix on the left hand side and change it the Intraday timeframe you want. Eg:

How to have Realtime scans during market hours?

While the markets are open, the “Latest” refers to the current days’ candle. The current price is also reflected for “Intraday”, “Weekly” & “Monthly” ranges which are updated during market hours in near realtime.

Bracketing & Operator precedence

Operators(+,-,*,/) are evaluated from left to right. If you need to specific the precedence you can use Brackets and group expressions as follows:

How to scan for ranges – eg: RSI(14) less than 30 for the past 10 days

You can use the min/max functions to specify ranges, here’s a example for “William%r in the range of -20 to -50(i.e. <=-20 and >=-50) from 5 days”: http://chartink.com/screener/williams-r-range-of-20-to-50-for-the-past-5-days

You can also combine 3 days OR 5 days in a single scan using sub-filters which help you specify and/or conditions, here’s another example: http://chartink.com/screener/williams-r-range-of-20-to-50-for-the-past-5-days-or-for-the-past-3-days

  15. Scanning in intraday timeframe is helpful if watch list is scanned continuously and a sound alert is generated as soon as conditions are met. Based on sound alert, trading action can be initiated. Its not efficient to press scan again n again to repeat the procedure; secondly if you have sound alerts, time between the alerts can be used more productively for other analysis rather need for looking on screener all the time.
    Is there any plan to add above features soon ?

  16. If we can run the screener every 5 minutes for list of stocks to find out price volume breakout and then generate alert based on playing sound, sending email that would be really great. Kindly advise if there’s a possibility to include as it will help many people especially those who do intraday.

  51. I hope you guys come with a system where we can only select a constant candlestick/constant number of candlesticks of any timeframe and of any wanted day.

  52. I am interested in the premium chartink subscription, but i have some doubts.

    1) I am looking for 30 min intraday breakout scan as well as breakdown scan, but i am not getting any results if i put them in single scan. so if i create two different scan will i get alerts for both at the same time?
    2) Do i have to run scan and set alerts everyday or is it one time process?
    3) I dont want alerts on sms, so can i get alerts just on desktop or mobile?

  55. hi….I found some stock scanned using conditions are removed from the list and one more thing price when conditions clicked not to be changed (LTP is shown) so one can have idea how scanner has performed even if he has not traded that stock.

    If this is already there let me know how it can be done! this is just first day using chartink!

  56. how can we get live data of EOD scanner everyday, it seems to updated one day old data.
    Is this facility is available in premium version.?

  57. Thank you for such a great service. Is there any way to scan using the NYSE? Or if not are you aware of any similar sites that are free and easy to use as this site?

  58. in the screener results make a column of tiny line graph preview so we can see the trends of the particular stock just like that in the nse site.

  59. I have more than 3 watchlist created for different stocks.

    I want to scan with specific conditions for first watchlist and different conditions for second watchlist

  60. All prices are taken from cash segment if we select futures also. I need to have futures contract price/volumes for filters. For eg if I choose RELIANCE18NOVFUT for calculation, it is considering RELIANCE price calculation eventhough i selected in futures segment filter.

    1. Yes, currently we do not have F&O data. We do plan on adding it in the near term. Shall keep you posted. For now we have added a segment filter that can be modified in the top-most filter to scan only on stocks which are present in the F&O segment.

    1. Our premium members get realtime data with updates every minute for our Charts & Scans. So if you run a scan at 9:20am for example, it would be based on the latest data until 9:19:59am and so on..
