How to Scan a Current WatchList With a New Condition Set

You can now Scan any WatchList on the fly with any Condition or Condition Set you create. This allows for quick access to and application of any created conditions to any WatchList being viewed. Here are the steps for Scanning an existing WatchList using newly created condition(s).

1. Place a Checkmark next to Scan in any WatchList

This opens the Scan menu within the WatchList.

2. Select the Select Conditions dropdown

This opens the editing tool for creating a condition/condition set to be applied. (Note: whenever you see the blue funnel icon that menu is for creating conditions.)

3. Click Add Condition to open the criteria library.

In the Search field type the name of the condition(s) to be used for the Scan.

If you don't know the name of the criteria you can use the Categories to narrow the list and scroll to find the desired criteria desired.

4. Create the first condition

Click the criteria to be used for the condition.

Note: In this example we will build a Condition set looking for stocks with Price between $10 and $100, Average Daily Volume Greater than 500,000 shares,  Stochastics is overbought and the stock is currently making a new 50 day high. However, any indicators, fundamentals, formula, etc., in the condition criteria library can be used for constructing a condition/condition set.

Click the Condition dropdown and select Is Between from the list.

Set the desired Minimum and Maximum values and click OK.
