  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.
