    Hi guys

    I have a linked watchlist set up with results of a custom scan feeding into it. The scan is based on a script created in the scanning manager.

    I have set the scan to “date range: last bar” and “data timeframe: 60 mins” (using intraday OANDA data). However, the scan produces results from the beginning of the day, not the current 60 min bar? I guess that might be by design, or am I doing something wrong?

    The problem is, that I only want to review new results identified by the script, not things that I have already looked at earlier in the day, or where the opportunity has passed.

    As a workaround, I wondered if it was possible to include the ‘Date matched’ column from the scanning manager into the watchlist? This would allow me to sort and filter and disregard earlier opportunities.

    Sorry If I’m missing something obvious. Perhaps there is an easier way that I am overlooking?

    Many thanks in advance for your help

    Thanks Jonathan.

    Rather than linking the watchlist to a scan, open your list of symbols in a watchlist and add the formula used in the scan as a custom column. This will then show true or false based on the latest data coming in to the watchlist.

    Perfect, thank you Darren. Combined with a technical alert, this is brilliant!
