I need help! / External linking to TOS
« Last post by Zabumafu on May 11, 2020, 10:49:09 pm »
Is there instructions for this other than what's provided when you open up the tool? I hover over my TOS and press shift and it links it but doesnt work right. I tried the external linking tool earlier with TOS both with and without the thinkorswim option checked. When I click on a ticker symbol TI just constantly tries to send it to TOS or something and just autoclicks and becomes unresponsive.

Thank you very much! I was not even close with what I had tried.

Is there any documentation available that defines the alerts and filters available and then goes into how to use them?

I really appreciate your quick reply and help.

Hi tg11652,

Glad to help you on your journey with Etrade and Trade Ideas.

I read your description of the universe that you want to see. When you see these settings, you may understand the product more and modify them accordingly.

The first link is for outside Strategy Scanner. The second link is to import directly into Strategy Scanner:

1. https://www.trade-ideas.com/View.php?O=1_419_0&MaxPrice=15&MinPrice=5&MinR5D=150&MinTV=500000&WN=150+%25+Above+5+day+low+Breaking+out&show0=D_Type&show1=D_Time&show2=D_Symbol&show3=D_Desc&show4=Price&show5=RV&show6=TV&show7=FCP&show8=Vol1&show9=Vol5&show10=PV&show11=Count&col_ver=1

2. WN=150+%25+Above+5+day+low+Breaking+out&show0=D_Type&show1=D_Time&show2=D_Symbol&show3=D_Desc&show4=Price&show5=RV&show6=TV&show7=FCP&show8=Vol1&show9=Vol5&show10=PV&show11=Count&col_ver=1&O=1_419_0&MaxPrice=15&MinPrice=5&MinR5D=150&MinTV=500000

Simply copy this text string and right click into a Strategy window within the tool to choose the 'Change Strategy' option.
Then select the 'Import Strategy' option and you will be able to paste the above text into the dialog box.  Then click on View to see the settings.  Once you hit OK you'll see the strategy in your folder with the suffix '_import'.

Hope this helps.

Best,

DA

I need help! / Re: Power Etrade Pro user, looking for help with "Strategy Scanner"
« Last post by tg11652 on April 30, 2020, 01:36:08 pm »
Hello,

I am an Etrade Pro user trying to set up a scanner to look for stocks with the following criteria if possible. Stocks up 150% or more from the 5 day low priced between $5 and $15 with a minimum volume of 500k shares.

Related, is there a link for detailed documentation on setting up filters and alerts you have available as well?

Thanks in advance for any help or direction.

I need help! / Tiered Conditional Scanner
« Last post by Tumnus on April 28, 2020, 11:49:33 am »
I'm trying to get a scanner to do a multi-condition type thing.  I want it to be highly modifiable, but as an example: if a stock makes a new high of day, nothing happens, but the first time it makes a new 5 minute low AFTER making a new high of day, an alert result pops up.  I talked to TI support and they basically said there's no way to do this automatically.  Is there any kind of roundabout way I could accomplish this?  I'm looking into using symbol lists to effectively link two separate alert windows together, but running into two problems.  A. there doesn't seem to be a way to get symbols to add to a list based on results from an alert window, and B. Custom symbol lists don't seem to be showing up on the symbol lists tab in the alert configuration.  Does anyone know of a way to fix those issues?  Or maybe another way that I might accomplish what I'm trying to do?

Hello!

I'm also an E-Trade Pro user trying to figure out how to use the scanner and not having success. I'm actually really curious to start with Trade Ideas soon, but am not quite ready to commit yet. In the mean time, I'm still learning and observing, and I'm wondering if a tech person here can help me set up a scanner for day trading strategies that I practice, mainly to find the major movers within my price range:

Price Range: $0.01 - $20.00
Volume: Anything higher than 500K for the day
Price Action:
1) Price is 20%+ higher than previous day close
2) Price moves up 10%+ in a 5-minute time frame for the current day
3) Price passes current high of day

I've tried using the GUIs to set this up but nothing ever pops up when I clearly know there are stocks that fit these criteria every day. Can someone help me set this up, and to also include pre-market and after-hour time windows? Thank you so much!

@Trade-ideas Admin @bishop311. Thanks for that idea. Def. owe you a six pack. Is there a way to modify the above formula for pre and post market for price action that trade above the 10day MA. I'd like to modify so any price action above the 10day MA will alert after five complete candles. A lot of these conditions don't seem to show up before 9:30 at which point it becomes moot.Thanks.

Without knowing the time period for the 5 complete candles, here is a scan that should match with what you are looking for. The first link is for outside Strategy Scanner. The second link is to import directly into Strategy Scanner:
