Scanning for stocks

  1. Hi,

    do you guys know of any scanner that gives you realtime alerts when a stock goes up or down on bigger than average volume.
    Or a stock that APPROACHES 52 week highs/lows, not after it printed them.
    And a scanner or a good website that has the gappers for NYSE. Whether it's a subscription website/scanner or a free one, that doesn't matter.

    I'm already using the eSignal TURBO package and the Trade-Ideas scanner, but I'm not really happy with them.

    Could anyone help me out here?

    I do alot of that with a spreadsheet. Does your platform have an API? if so you can probably do most of that in Excel. I have a col for volume and one for 90 day Avg Vol. I also have col with Vol/Avg Vol, so I can sort this col and see which stocks are trading at unusually high vol. I also have col for gaps. I've attached a sample.
  3. Hi Arnie,

    thanks for your reply. my platform has API. But it's not really extended only the basic stuff. Like last, today's hi/lo, today's volume etc. Nothing historic. But I'm looking for a piece of software that'll do this for me.
