If you can describe a scenario to a fellow trader, you can scan for it on TrendSpider

Create complex scans using mixed technical and non-technical conditions, together. Combine conditions from different timeframes and data sources, in a single scan. Get fancy with it! For example, if you wanted to search the Russell 2000 for any stocks with 3 quarters of earnings growth, a bullish pattern on the 15 minute and Daily charts, a recent monthly golden cross, and a recent news article that mentions a specific government agency, you can. The sky really is the limit.

Scan using any combination of your favorite technical indicators

Looking for stocks in the S&P 500 where the 53-period hourly EMA has crossed above the 196-period daily SMA in the last 5 trading days, while RSI is overbought on the 15 minute chart? No problem! Mix-and-match any technical conditions using any indicators or combination of indicators together in a single scan. Best of all — it's all visual. No programming knowledge required.

Scan using data and conditions from multiple timeframes at once

Most scanners only support certain technical conditions on a single timeframe. TrendSpider's Market Scanner can search across any timeframe, from 1-minute to 1-month. You can even combine multiple timeframes together in a single scan to leverage the power of multi-timeframe analysis when generating your watchlists!
