about stock scanner function

Postby johnmok » 04 Mar 2012

i know mc have a scanner function to real time monitoring a list of stocks.

i am aiming for another purpose, i want to do a eod scanning of all the stocks in a stock market on daily basis

for example, finding stocks which have price above 200 day sma and rsi < 30, do i need to have a list with all the stocks number of that market (e.g. all stocks of hk market), and paste it in the scanner to do the eod scanning?

any other simpler method? can i automatically import the stock list? or are there actually some simple ways to do the eod stock search?

metastock and do it in a very simple way IMO.

thanks a lot!

Yes, that's whole purpose of the scanner -- to find instruments that fit the criteria.
Note that you will need 200 days of data to find the 200 sma.

YES.
