How To Plot Scan Results Over Time (Add to new chart)

A Scan Plot allows you to plot scan results historically over time. A bar chart is created from the Scan 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 scan returns many or a few symbols at any given point in time. Scan plots show how many stocks pass your scan historically. They can make for good market timing indicators and are useful for checking if your scan conditions are too strict or loose. Counting stocks that pass conditions to create market indicators is not new. (Click here to see how Scan for Date allows you to run the scan on those dates to see the actual symbols that past your conditions.)

1. From A WatchList Window

Turn the Scan tool on in your WatchList

Select Scan to be Historically Plotted. Click the Filter icon to open the condition editor. Click the Folder icon to open your condition/condition set library. Select the condition/set you wish to use.  In this example, we will be using an existing condition called 5 Day Gainer.

(Click here for help selecting existing scan conditions from library.)

Note: Condition sets using mixed time frames will create a Scan Plot using only one time frame for all conditions.

Alternately, create a new condition/condition set. Click the Filter icon to open the condition building wizard.

2. From the EasyScan Menu

Click the EasyScan button in the ribbon menu

Click the Scan Plus button next to the condition set you want to use.
