- scan results are sorted by today's volume, descending order
- all scans require sma(60) price greater than $2
- all scans require ema(60) volume greater than 100,000 shares, sma(5) volume greater than 40,000 shares and today's volume greater than 10,000 shares [last requirement intended to filter out stocks that are no longer trading (buy-outs) but some still get through the StockCharts scan engine]
- check dates on charts before considering a trade; doesn't purge non-trading stocks out of their database very well; they make their way into the scan results on a regular basis (despite the above single day volume filter)
- the tweezer scans may provide good contrary set-ups (tweezer top for long breakout entry, tweezer bottom for short entry)
- the swing scans are based on this,
- the keltner channel breakout scan uses sma(20) and 1.5xATR(22) for the kc
- the vp gainers scan finds stocks with today's volume equal to twice the 20 day sma of volume, a 5 percent gain relative to yesterday's close and a close in the upper 20 percent of today's range
- scan results are not intended for mechanical investing. Check the charts to see if any meet your personal trade entry requirements.
