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.

New Custom Scanners:

To accompany the new scripting operations we have also included four new custom scans you can use as a base to build in your custom scripts.

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

 

We are always curious how you will use the new functionality, for comments or to show off your findings @ us on Twitter!
