Hi,
in tc 2000 12 here is my condition:

c1 > o1 and
(H-L) <= (H1 -L1)*0,5

this on 15 minute chart.

So right now, market are closed and I add this condition as column on watch list.

On signaled stocks, first line is respected: previous bar is green.

But second line seems completely ignored: normally, latest bar day range should be smaller or equal to previous bar range /2.
It isn't the case.... why ?

If you are using US Regional settings, the comma in 0,5 should be a period:

C1 > O1 AND (H - L) <= (H1 - L1) * 0.5

Tks Bruce.

I think this is due to refresh issues.... after I modify my condition, it seems I must either delete column, add it again, or restart tc2000 to have proper results.
Refresh column and resort seems not working well.

Are you aware of such issues ?

Once you add a Condition to a Scan or use it as a WatchList Column, it is bottled into that Scan or Sort and is independent of the original Condition. This allows you to do things like use the same Condition with different Time Frames in multiple places. Subsequent changes to the Condition will not affect the Scan or Sort.

You would need to remove and re-add a Condition used as a WatchList Column or Scan Condition if you want the WatchList Column or Scan Condition to reflect any changes made to the original Condition.

Refreshing a Scan or Column refreshes the data being used. It does not retrieve an altered version of the orginial Condiiton.

Yes, I've tested it and using a comma for the decimal should work as long as that's what is set in your Regional Settings for Windows.

Hope this isnt off topic, but I cant figure out how to post a reply in the Candle sticktopic. Please advise what I'm missing.

My question is what could be wrong with the candlepatterns provided here in the forum as "candlestick pfc's"?  i created  3 black crows and 3 white soldiers conditions, but they only returned 1 result for sp-500, 0 for all other groups, weekly and daily timeframes. This is definitely incorrect as i was able to manually find many of each, 3 black and 3 white candles.

I'm not a candlestick guy (at all). If you provide your particular unambiguous objective definitions for these patterns, I should be able to help you create a formula however.

Hi Bruce,
can you please tell me why this condition scan doesn't work:

c1 > o1 and
C1 - O1 >= (H1-L1)*0,6

Previous bar should be green , and its body (distance between O1 and C1) must be at least 60% of total range (H1-L1).

Buy this condiiton doesn't return anything.

I'm really not sure as I get 630 items currently returning true in the US Common Stocks WatchList. You may want to contact technical support.

Well, it finally was a real bug... support is going to fix this.
Other than this, what an AMAZING program. Can't believe the power it has to scan entire maket in seconds for custome conditions.

I see there is an option to "install it on PC" shall we go for this ? What's the advantage ? With the online version it's currently so fast I don't want to do anything that would negatively impact performances.

Theoretically installing to the PC should make TC2000 slightly faster. That said, it is not enough that I really notice it.
