Hello,

 

New to TC2000. Used Finviz and Etrade Pro for scanning but have hear greate things about this software and wanted to give it a shot. Are there certain scans that traders use for low price volatile stocks? I like to scan for multi day breakout possibilities, 52 high breakouts with Volume over 200K, price between .01 and 10 and up on the day. Is this possible?

You could try the following.

C > MAXH251.1 AND V > 200000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

C > MAXH51.1 AND V > 500000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

That is exactly what you would do if you are trying to keep the same scan but use a weekly time frame instead of a daily time frame..

If you wanted the volume for the week to be 5 * the 200,000 shares used above though, you would want to use 1000000 instead of 500000.

C > MAXH251.1 AND V > 200000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

Yes, the last 10 in the code stands for $10 if the symbol is a stock.

I am somewhat confused and I think I may have misunderstood the first request. I thought you were trying to convert a formula written for a daily time frame into a formula for a weekly (5 day) time frame.

The original formula in this topic is designed for a daily time frame and checks for the current price to be above the high of the previous 251 trading days. This 252 trading day span is meant as an approxiation for 52 calendar weeks with weekends and market holidays taken out.

The conversion had already been successfully done with the only possible issue being the volume being checked over 5 days was only double the volume being checked for a single day.

So converting from a daily time frame to a weekly time frame meant multiplying the volume by 5 in order to get the scan to return similar stocks with similar average volume.

If you are just checking for price to be above the high of the previous trading day, 3 trading days or 5 trading days however, there is no need to adjust volume.

C > H1 AND V > 200000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

C > MAXH3.1 AND V > 200000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

C > MAXH5.1 AND V > 200000 AND .01 <= C AND C <= 10

Bruce.
thank you your answer in my question. I'm just curious where I put 5 days? Question I was asking, where do you put the a 5 day in the formula. What I was asking you so you get into my question at the end of the beginning of the formula. MXAH3.1 so this means 3 days, correct? The first number is the day what is the second number stand for?

In MAXH3.1 the 3 is the number of bars over which you are returning the maximum high and the 1 is how many bars ago the last of these 3 bars happened.

So MAXH3.1 is the highest high of the 3 bars ending 1 bar ago.

C > MAXH3.1 says the current price is higher than the highest high of the 3 bars ending 1 bar ago.

The measurements are in bars. So if the time frame is daily, then each bar is equal to 1 day, if the time frame is hourly then each bar is equal to one hour and if the time frame is weekly then the time frame is equal to one calendar week.
