Price, Volume, and SCTRs

Scan Syntax Reference: Price, Volume, and SCTRs

There are several price, volume, and SCTR values that you can set as filters for your scan. For more information on writing scans using these and other scan clauses, please see our Support Center article on Writing Scans.

High

The largest price value for a security during the time period.

Syntax:

  • high

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [high > 99.9]

Close

The last price value for a security during the time period. Note that when the market is open and an intraday scan is used, the 'close' value is equal to the most recent price for the security.

Syntax:

  • close

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [close > 99.9]

Open

The first price value for a security during the time period.

Syntax:

  • open

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [open > 99.9]

Low

The smallest price value for a security during the time period.

Syntax:

  • low

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [low > 99.9]

All Time High

The all-time high value for a security.

Syntax:

  • all time high

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [all time high = close]

Volume

The number of shares traded for a security during the time period.

Syntax:

  • volume

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [volume > 9,999,999]

Range (High - Low)

The range for a security during the time period. The range is calculated as the value of the high minus the value of the low for that time period.

Syntax:

  • range

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [range > 9.99]

Gain

The gain for a security during the time period. The gain is calculated as the value of the close minus the value of the open for that time period.

Syntax:

  • gain

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [gain > 9.99]

AbsGain

The absolute value of the gain for a security during the time period. The gain is calculated as the value of the close minus the value of the open for that time period. This represents the size of the candle body for that security.

Syntax:

  • AbsGain

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [AbsGain > 9.99]

Liquidity

The liquidity for a security during the time period. The liquidity is calculated as the value of close multiplied by the volume for that time period.

Syntax:

  • liquidity

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [liquidity > 9,999,999]

SCTR

The SCTR value for a security during the time period. This finds securities with the requested SCTR value, regardless of SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR > 90]

SCTR.large

The SCTR value for a large-cap US stock during the time period. This finds securities with the requested SCTR value from within the Large-Cap SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.large

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.large > 90]

SCTR.mid

The SCTR value for a mid-cap US stock during the time period. This finds securities with the requested SCTR value from within the Mid-Cap SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.mid

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.mid > 90]

SCTR.small

The SCTR value for a small-cap US stock during the time period. This finds securities with the requested SCTR value from within the Small-Cap SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.small

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.small > 90]

SCTR.us.etf

The SCTR value for a US-listed ETF during the time period. This finds securities with the requested SCTR value from within the ETF SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.us.etf

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.us.etf > 90]

SCTR.tsx

The SCTR value for a TSE-listed security during the time period. This finds Canadian securities with the requested SCTR value from within the TSX SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.tsx

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.tsx > 90]

SCTR.lse

The SCTR value for an LSE-listed security during the time period. This finds London securities with the requested SCTR value from within the LSE SCTR Universe.

Syntax:

  • SCTR.lse

Operators:

  • =, !=, >, >=, <=, <, x, is, is not

Example:

  • [SCTR.lse > 90]

SCTR.nse

The SCTR value for an NSE-listed security during the time period. This finds India securities with the requested SCTR value from within the NSE SCTR Universe.
