Using Notes Info in a Script

Is it possible to create a scan that will use either search data within the notes field or the "BUY,HOLD, SELL or EXIT " entries? The end goal is try and use those fields to mark Economic Data charts and then summarize the number of positive (i.e. BUYS) relative to Neutrals (i.e. HOLD’s) and negative values using SELL.

Hi Duke,

The Journal items can’t be referenced in scripting at this time. You could use a custom EDF to achieve a similar result, by setting a number component to represent Buy / Hold / Sell, etc.

Once this has been setup you can use the DataField() function to reference the custom EDF values.

The following article will provide some more information on how you can go about setting up a custom EDF in Optuma:
