StockCharts Support January 27, 2009
In general, you can create scans based on any of the indicators and overlays that you can place on our SharpCharts. There are some exceptions however. You cannot use the following SharpCharts features in a scan:
- Ratio Charts - Scans only work on one ticker symbol at a time.
- Zig-Zag Based Features - Zig-Zag, Zig-Zag w/Retracements, and Price Labels.
- Price-By-Volume - its value depends on the starting date of the chart on which it appears.
- Renko, Kagi and 3-Line-Break Charts - the scan engine only works with bar, candlestick and P&F data
- Pivot Points
- Correlation Coefficient
