How To Select Condition Set for Scan Plot
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.)

Any existing scan condition/condition set in your condition library can use used to generate a Scan Plot. Here is how you choose the condition(s) to use in your Scan Plot.
