    Hi, Just wondered if anyone can assist me with the following criteria for a script for scans:-

    1. 50MA<20MA
    2. 20MA<7MA
    3. Price< Highest High (Last 52weeks)
    4. Price uptrending
    5. Price uptrend change >10% (Last 14days)

    I have attached the charts showing typically what I need. The current script I am using is including too many false +ves.
    CLOSE(Day(PERIODAMOUNT=1), OFFSET=2) CROSSESABOVE MA(7)

    Many thanks and appreciate any assistance.

    Hi Marie,

    You do not need to specify the daily time frame if you are using this on Day Charts and scanning on daily data ( which is the default).

    I like to break up scans into separate items and put them in variables like “C1” which in my mind I call “Condition 1”

    What I like about using the variables is if there are any issues, I can go line by line and examine each item to be sure that it is right. eg If I wanted to check my Gann Swing rule, I can comment out the last line and just put c4 as the output like this

    Hope that helps point you in the right direction

    Mathew

    That’s a great example of best-practice scripting.  Thanks Matthew.
