Topic: Scan for price approaching recent high after pullback
Posted: Friday, June 23, 2017 4:16:01 PM

If anyone wants to use Bruce's version of my scan, perhaps as a Watch List column, the correctformula for copy & pasteis

CountTrue(XDown(C,HAvgC10),30) >0 AND C=>MaxC30*.9 and C < MaxC30.5 AND C>HAvgC10 AND HAVGC10 >= HAVGC10.2 + 2 / 10

Another approach to consider, and for Bruce&#39;s comment:

CountTrue(XDown(C,HAvgC10),30) >0 and (There has been a Pull Back)

Hull Moving Average Moving Up Net Change 0.20 in Past Two Days and (Moving upward, not a PCF)

C=>MaxC30*.9 and C<MaxC30.5CountTrue(XDown(C,HAvgC10),30) >0 (Nearing recent High) AND

C>HAvgC10   Ensure hasn&#39;t slipped back downward

Tonight my attempt returned 101 stocks from HC1000, 63 of which were among the 126 returned by Bruce&#39;s scan.  I didn&#39;t pick up CDW because today&#39;s close was the Highest close in 30 days, but I did pick up CRM which looks to me to be a candidate. I&#39;m not trying to turn this into a contest of who&#39;s better, but I saw the original post, thought is was such an obviously useful scan that I started to figure out how I would approach  it. I would be interested in any comments Bruce might have. I&#39;m not sure, for example, if I have captured all the "requirements" from the originating post,nor I confess, hace I attempted to decode Bruce&#39;s PCF

RSI formula in above should be RSI14, RSI14.1.1, RSI14.1.2 and RSI14.1.3 respectively

14 is period of RSI Formula, second digit allows a moving averageto be applied (which we don&#39;t want in this case, so is one) and third digit is bars ago

If you aren&#39;t hung up on the numerical values this should also work

TrueInRow(RSI14>RSI14.1.1,3) = 3 and RSI14>30

For Daily Average Volume, I suggest you use


Your formula requires EVERY day to be over the average volume

I believe your formula for the gap will work as you described

Wilder RSI is a different formula than RSI,and so will return different results.


RSI14>30 and RSI14.1<29 and RSI14.2<28 and RSI14.3<27

If you do want to use Wilder RSI, put a W in front of each RSI is the formula above eg WRSI14

Assuming you mean VOLUME of at least 200K

Click on Easyscans (Top row on TC2000 screen)

Select Create New EasyScan

Click on the funnel Icon 

Add Conditions


and a second scan condition of C>C1 (since your are looking for gainers)

Create a Scan Condition AvgV10>200000 

Theresultwill have fivecolumns

One is %Change, and another is Net Change 

Clicking on the title of either will sort by value

Also when you clickon the Funnel icon, you can select the list of stocks to run the scan against,such as SP500, High Cap 1000 (roughly the Russell1000) High Cap 30000 or US Common stocks

TC2000 allows only 500 bars of data in onechart. But this could be 500 weeks of data, so you might consider XAvgC50<XAvgC200 on a weekly chart.
