Scanning Software Help

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by thurstonhowell3, Nov 28, 2009.

  1. I'm looking for a real-time, intraday scanner that will dynamically find stocks and alert me when a technical indicator meets certain user-entered parameters .

    For example: "continually scan for stocks that are up >2%, on greater than average volume, and have become oversold on the 5 minute stochastic".

    I have Trade Ideas currently, but it doesn't have this ability. Any ideas?

    Be careful with real-time scanning on your local computer. It is always difficult to scan a large universe of stocks on even the fastest connection. I used realtick in the past for this.

    Some server based scanners exist that might be better.
