Hello, Im new to the site, but looking for a scan to find stocks that have crossed below the 10ma but above 20ma. Basically the stock is in the middle of the two Moving averages. Any ideas how to create a scan?

Thank you,

I think this is what you're looking for:

show stocks where the Aroon Up (20) has been above 70 for the last 2 weeks
and don't draw aroon up(20)
EMA(10) above EMA(30)
and close < EMA(10)
and close > EMA(30)
and draw EMA(10)
and draw EMA(30)
and set {B, price - lower bollinger band}
and set{range, upper bollinger band - lower bollinger band}
and set {%B, B/range}
and %B above .5
and draw %B
and volume(30) above 400000
and price above 3

To anyone looking at or using this strategy - what characteristics are you using to select candidates from the results? For example, running 7/17 UNH looks like action has come down in line with prior pullbacks . . . good vol for the day . . . price near EMA(30) . . . etc.

lwshultz:
You're looking for a pullback into the TAZ from a strong uptrend. You use a buy stop to get in, placed just above the high for the completed day. After you buy in, you place a protective stop below your entry price. a few cents below the ATR(10) is a good rule. You probably want this to be a mental stop because the NASDAQ at least, makes your stop a market order if hit by the bid price. All this is reversed to trade the short side.

How will I modify the current script to look for the reverse of the trade (short side of it). looking for stocks that are below the 30ma but above 10ma?

Thanks,
