1. Introducing Routines: A Better Way to Bookmark / Save Scans

    I've just released a new feature called "Routines".  Routines will allow you to organize your scanning & stock research workflow.  They are essentially to-do lists.  These lists can contain saved scans, URLs or plain text notes.   

    Each item in a routine has a checkbox to indicate whether it's been completed.  You can simply click the boxes to toggle them between completed and incomplete. Each trading day, in the morning, the system will reset all of your items to incomplete.

    Here are some situations in which these routines may be helpful:

  2. Customizing Your Stock Screening

    I'm sharing an email exchange I had earlier today in hopes that it will help others to find ways to get exactly what they want when using the site to scan for stocks.  A friend sent me this:

    I was looking through your hammer scans on SwingTradeBot to see how Zillow stacked up on the grading curve. I was surprised Zillow (Z) only got a B. I looked at the A rated puppies and felt like Zillow (Z) should be higher rated. Then I realized what I really want is a modified hammer scan. I want hammers that come at the end of a period of selling, even better if it is an oversold hammer or a hammer coming off a high. The preceding selling has to be at least three straight down days. Did you already read my mind and create such a thing, or do I need to put a suggestion in the idea box? :)

    Here's my answer:

  3. A Look Back at the Signals Which Launched EVR's 40+ Percent Rally...

    The other day I was flipping through charts on the top percentage gainers scan and noticed the run EVR has had over the last three months.  It's pretty much been straight up (more than 40%) since late October.

  4. The Super Duper Combo Scan is Here!

    I just released a feature I've been wanting for a long time.  I've also been asked for it by many people.  It's essentially a scan of scans.  You can now combine up to three scans into one result set.  The stocks which will be returned are only those which match all the requested scans.  

    You'll find it on the main scans page called the 'combo scan'.  This will make it even easier & faster to find trading candidates matching your trading style.  Simply choose two or three different scans and enter the other criteia as usual.
