TrendSpider Software Update: New Options for Scanners, Backtesting, and Alerts

Hello everyone! Today we are excited to announce the addition of a few new scripting operations for Backtesting, Scanning, and Multi-Factor Alerts. Traders can now use “Is within range of”, “Greater or equal”, “Less or equal” when building script conditions as well as a new “By at least” margin to filter for any price, candlestick pattern, or indicator within a certain range of their trigger.

New Scripting Operations

Is within range of – Use this operation to filter when price, candlestick pattern, or indicator comes within a range of another price, candlestick pattern, or indicator.

Greater or equal – Use this operation to filter when price, candlestick pattern, or indicator is greater than or equal to another price, candlestick pattern, or indicator.

Less or equal – Use this operation to filter when price, candlestick pattern, or indicator is less than or equal to another price, candlestick pattern, or indicator.

New Margin Filter

In addition to the new operations above, traders can now filter price, and candlestick pattern, or indicator by a percentage margin of their trigger. To enable this when scripting, select the three dots at the end of you scripting line to enable and disable this functionality.

  2. Price within 1% of 52W high
  3. Price 2% or more above prev close
  4. EMA 50 within 1% of EMA 200
