How To Plot Market Indicator Over Time (Add to new chart)
A Market Indicator Chart allows you to plot condition results historically over time. A bar chart is created from the Condition(s) for 1500 bars in any timeframe. Each bar tells you the number of stocks in your selected WatchList returned for any particular date. It is easy to see whether a condition filter returns many or a few symbols at any given point in time. Market Indicator plots show how many stocks pass your condition historically. They can make for good market timing indicators and are useful for checking if your conditions are too strict or loose. (Click here to see how Select Date On Chart refresh rate allows you to run the scan on those dates to see the actual symbols that past your conditions.)
