Scan for Outside day bar followed by inside day bar

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm a complete novice in writing scans or in programming, so will appreciate help on a simple scan.

How can I put up a scan showing the occurrence of an outside day bar followed immediately by an inside day bar in Medved Trader?

Appreciate all help, many thanks.

Are you looking for something like this?  (Look for the little Squares above the candles.)

Hi LW ,

Thank you very much. That is exactly what I need for the scan to display on the chart.

Further to that, how can I get the scan to display the results on the Scan column and Scan Date after each time I have scanned my portfolio stocks?

At this present moment, the paintbar can display the occurrence nicely on the bar charts - is there something I need to do to get the results to show once and the scan date or time once  I apply the scan on my portfolio?

Once again, appreciate your help. Thanks!

The OutsideIn is not something that happens often. I scan about 60 symbols and saw it trying to happen twice.  I added a TriggerAlert that you can add to a chart or scan when applying the paintbar.  In the scanner settings click on   "Params" then you can Edit/View both of the alerts settings.  You can change how long it takes the trigger to clear and restart.  You can set a popup and even play a sound.  You can do about the same thing when adding to charts also.

Attached is the same OutsideInside, but with the added TriggerAlert so you can edit.



I'm still learning myself. I hope it works for you.  If not maybe someone else might add to it that knows more.

Here's another paintbar that does away with the engulfing part of the outside day candle. 

It fires off more often than the other that looks for the Green/Red engulfing candle.  Still doesn't fire off a lot, but more than the one looking for engulfing candles.

What it looks like:

Hi LW,

Thank you for helping with the scans. In the process, I am beginning to understand a little bit on how it is done! 

Yes, the frequency of the alerts is not often, hence the need for the alerts to ensure their occurences are not missed.

I will be testing the scan over a week to see the results. Once again, thanks for helping. Much appreciated!
