(O - C1) / ATR20.1 <= -1


This should be:

(O - AVGC10.1) / ATR20.1 <= -1



123 * FAVGC20.1 > 124 * AVGC20.1


123 * FAVGC50.1 > 124 * AVGC50.1


How do you determine the "123" and "124"?

I assume they check for the 1.05 slope?


Other slopes could be checked by changing those variables?

the link provided contains other trading systems.


Can you supply the PCFs for these:





Historical Volitility(100)<=1.0




Target Exit: (0.5 * ATR(20)) above open




Stop: (1.5 * ATR(20)) below open



Please note that because this system trades at the open of the day only, the previous day&#39;s moving averages, trend lines, ATRs, etc. were used. However, the ATR oscillator, which is similar to a Keltner Channel (explained here), does use the open price. The oscillator measures the distance between the current price and a moving average (previous day) normalized by an average true range ( ATR ). The formula for the ATR oscillator is:

  • ATR Oscillator at Open (10,20) = ( Open - SMA(10) ) / ATR(20)

  • ...where the SMA and ATR are the previous day&#39;s values.

We use only the close of the day in our SMA calculation.




ATR Oscillator at Open(20,10) <= -1.0






Regression Trend Line Open(20) > 1.05




Regression Trend Line Open(50) > 1.05





The regression trend line is the slope of the regression line fit to the price data (closing prices). A value of 1.0 represents a flat line. A value of 1.05 indicates a line that grew 5% over the time frame. A value of .95 would represent a line that lost 5% in value over the time frame. The threshold in the system ensures that our stock has a general upward trend over the time frames.

If you have a tie in a watchlist column sort

how is the order determined?


Can you sort by more than one column if there is a tie?

QUOTE (traderlady)

How to manage charts, dots (or histograms) on charts, and how to add signals as columns:

Placing the XAvgC34 (Ema34) overlaid on your candlesticks is just a matter of this.  Left click on Symbol, Add Plot Here, clicking on Moving Average - Exponential, clicking on Average Type (High for green, Last for neutral, Low for Red).

Add the Dots suggested here (I prefer Histrograms), involves doing this operation three times.  Add Plot to Chart, Custom PCF Indicator, then placing bcochrane&#39;s PCFs in each one.

You can also add each of the three Custom PCF Indicators (green, blue, red) as Columns.

bcochrane, Bruce, anyone -- I haven&#39;t figured out how to add a Grab Green Long (Go Long) or Grab Red Short (Go Short) signals to Easy Scans. Anyone have this figured out?





If you want it to be in Long mode:  C>XAVGH34

Short mode:   C<XAVGL34


If you want the first cross:


Long:    XUP(C, XAVGH34)

Short:   XDOWN(C, XAVGL34)

"Grab Long (Green Dot) 1/ABS(C>XAvgC34)"


This should be:  Grab Long (Green Dot) 1/ABS(C>XAvgH34)

I was using a moving average of 1, offset by the days you wanted to look back,

before they added that feature.
