I tried to write this scan myself....I couldn't find a sample to see if this could work..I use this as a basic strategy on trading FOREX on a 5 min chart..and I believe it could work on a daily chart as well for my swing trading.

Long Trend Scan:
Closed EMA(5) crossed above open EMA(8)

Short Trend Scan:
Closed EMA (5) crossed below open EMA(8)

Doesn't seem to scan correctly... is it possible to scan for an OPEN EMA 8?
Ofcourse I have to add the other vol and price filters later...but this is the main premise of the scan.

Thanks in advance!

try:
Fetcher[ema(5) crossed above cema(open,8)]



cema custom exponential moving average

when looking for a special function or indicator, check the announcements in the forum or the index. of course reading the SF user's guide would not hurt.

i leave you the second part as an exercise

Joules360,

Read the Announcements forum first. Most of the "good stuff" is there. The manual is a bit out of date...

HTH,
