Hi Bruce can you please help me convert this stockcharts.com scan to a PCF that I can then also use as a SCAN in TC2000- thanks! Aubrey

[Daily plus DI(14) > Daily minus DI(14)] and [Daily adx line(14 >=15] and [Slope(10,[Daily minus di(14)]) < 0] and [Close > daily sma(200,close)] and [daily sma(20,daily close) > daily SMA9200,close)]

A 9200 period simple moving average isn't going to calculate in TC2000 v12/v17/v18b because there are only 500 bars of data available for the calculations. If we substitute a 500 period SMA and assume the slope is based on net change.

DIPLUS14 > DIMINUS14 AND ADX14.14 >= 15 AND DIMINUS14 < DIMINUS14.10 AND C > AVGC200 AND AVGC20 > AVGC200

If we assume the slope is a linear regression slope.

DIPLUS14 > DIMINUS14 AND ADX14.14 >= 15 AND FAVG(DIMINUS14, 10) < AVG(DIMINUS14, 10) AND C > AVGC200 AND AVGC20 > AVGC200

Have change the formulas to reflect the SMA200 instead.

I cannot write the formulas for TC2000 v12. I can only write the formulas for TC2000 v17/v18b because the DI and ADX syntax was not added to the Personal Criteria Formula Language until v17.

About the best you could do in TC2000 v12 is to add the indicators to the chart. Then click on the indicators and select Create Scan Condition to create the desired conditions. You would then add all of the conditions to the same EasyScan.
