Scanning for Trading Opportunites

Recommended Posts

Call me lazy but is there any technology out there that will scan indices, FX or the whole UK or US market for individual shares where the price has reached a point and therefore certain indicators have, say, crossed as a result. i.e. EMA's or MA's where the parameters are set by the user? I wouldn't want metal mickey to trade it for me. I would be interested in having a list of opportunities to review.

The good old fashioned way is doing it yourself. Yes it is hard work and yes it is time consuming and you will miss lots of potential opportunities but you cannot trade all of them anyway. 

The lazy way would be 'Barchart' and 'Sharescope'.

Prorealcode is FREE & you can do all the programming yourself - build screeners , indicators & everything. There are tutorials , examples etc., to show you "how to" . You can use the FREE "end of day " version of prorealtime to facilitate it

      "Oil pushing up to resistance again and looking to break". What are your thoughts going into the weekend? Inverse head and shoulders as others have pointed out, or over bought and looking for a pull back?
