Name Description
1-to-5 Candle Consolidation 3+ Candle Ago Looks for a consolidation that is found between 1 and 5 candles prior to 3 candles ago. So a consolidation that was in place 3-7 candles prior to the current candle. This scan makes no requirement about how long the consolidation was in place at that point, only that it was detected 3-7 candles ago.
2 Bar Low Reversing Up The prior 2 Lows were descending and the current price is above the previous close as well as current bar open.
2nd Doji After White Candle This scan finds tickers that are currently the 2nd doji after a large white body candle
3 Black Crows Each candle should open below the previous day's open, ideally in the middle price range of that previous day. Each candlestick should also close progressively downward to establish a new near-term low.
3 Prior Higher Closes Working backward from the candle before the current candle, price made 3 Higher Closes.
3 Prior Lower Closes Working backward from the candle before the current candle, price made 3 Lower Closes.
4 Days Up + 4 White Candles This looks for potential short-term over-extension as defined as 4 consecutive white candles and 4 consecutive higher closes.
Above High of Low Candle Current candle close (or current price prior to close) is above the High of the candle which also contained the Low of a user-specified number of candles.
Above Lowest Low of User-Defined Candles Looks for the current price above the lowest low of a user-defined number of look-back candles.
Above Prior High Price is above prior candle high
Above T-Line Bands Price is above the (typically) Top T-Line Bands The 3 T-Line Bands are all 25-period Linear Regressions of their individual Exponential Moving Average. The Green T-Line Band (typically Top) is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Highs. The Blue (typically Middle) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Lows. The Red (typically Bottom) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 17ema of Lows.
Above White Candle Close Last candle was white and current price above last candle close.

Aroon Bearish Scan looks for tickers with AroonUp below 50 and AroonDown above 50.
Aroon Bullish Scan looks for tickers with AroonUp above 50 and AroonDown below 50.
ATR - Dollars Average True Range over the specified period is at least X dollars. This is a measure of volatility.
ATR - Percent Average True Range over the specified period is at least X percent of Current Price. This is a measure of volatility.
ATR Decreasing Average True Range over the specified period has decreased between the last two candles. This means volatility is decreasing.
ATR Increasing Average True Range over the specified period has increased between the last two candles. This means volatility is increasing.
ATR Less Than This scan looks for less volatile stocks (lower Average True Range, ATR) by having user define ATR periods, and a percentage of price that ATR must be less than or equal to. For example, values of 14 and 0.02 mean that all tickers passing the scan have a 14 period ATR of no more than 2 percent of their price. So a $100 stock has an average range of $2 or less.
ATR Spike Looks for tickers with a current candle high-Low range at least X percent greater than the ATR over a user-defined period
Average Volume Average volume over the last X candles is at least Y (in thousands of shares). This is a measure of liquidity.
Average Volume Decreasing This scan looks for Average Volume (over a user-specified period) as of the prior candle that has decreased by at least a user-specified percent from a prior user-defined candle. For example, the 5-candle average volume has increased by 25 percent in the 10 candles prior to the last candle.
Average Volume Increasing This scan looks for Average Volume (over a user-specified period) as of the prior candle that has increased by at least a user-specified percent from the candle prior to that. For example, the 5-candle average volume has increased by 25 percent in the last candle.
Averages Converging 2 user-defined moving averages are converging on the current candle.

Bear Best Friend The prior candle was indecisive (like a Doji or Spinning Top) and the current candle gapped lower at the open and then traded bearish, ending up as a large-body bearish candle.
Bear Blue Ice Failure Price has been in a long-term uptrend (50sma rising and above 200sma), but price has recently fallen down through the 50sma (blue ice) and remains below. However, one of the last 3 candles tested the 50sma again, but has so far failed. This is the same as the pattern Dave Elliott coined as the "Ice Hole Failure". Price must also still be at least 10% above the 200sma.
Bear Double Top in Last 3 Candle Price has been trending higher (bullish). However, it has now reached the same level as a previous reversal. User will define how close to an exact match this recent top was to the prior one and how long a time is allowed between the two tops.
Bear Dreaded h Pattern Price has been in a downtrend. However, it recently pulled back up and has now fallen back downward, forming a lower-case "h" pattern. This is a Bearish continuation pattern. (Opposite of a Bullish J-hook pattern.)

Bear MACD Cross The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) Line has crossed below the MACD Signal Line. Under standard settings, this means the 12 period-26 period MACD Line has crossed below a 9 period EMA of that MACD Line.
Bear Marubozu A bearish (black) candle with no wicks. This candle indicates that the sellers were in complete control of the market during the candle, selling off from the beginning to the end of the period.
Bear MOBO Band Breakout Price broke out of and closed below the MOBO Bands (Bollinger Band, 10pd, 0.8 Std Dev).
Bear Oreo Pattern The Oreo pattern is a bearish pattern where the candles resemble an Oreo cookie.

Bear Pulling Up Below V-Stop Price has been trending down (bearish) meaning that the Volatility Stop is above price. However, price has quite recently (within 3-4 candles) pulled back up toward (but still below) to V-Stop and may be offering a short entry closer to a volatility-based Stop price.
Bear Rounded Top Breakdown (RTB) - 34/50 Falling The Rounded Top Breakdown (RTB) pattern is a topping pattern, which is the opposite of a Rounded Bottom Breakout. In an RTB, price has been in a long-term uptrend but has formed a top and has now broken down through the 50sma. In this variation of the RTB, at least 5% remains down to the 200sma AND the 34ema and 50sma have also begun to decline. (This is a variation of RTB, with only minimum of 5% remaining to the 200sma target, allows for entries on higher price stocks and option plays. In a standard RTB, a minimum of 10% would remain down to the 200sma.)
Bear Rounded Top Breakdown (RTB) - 5% The Rounded Top Breakdown (RTB) pattern is a topping pattern, which is the opposite of a Rounded Bottom Breakout pattern. In an RTB, price has been in a long-term uptrend but has formed a top and has now broken down through the 50sma. In this variation of the RTB, at least 5% remains down to the 200sma. (This is a variation of RTB which allows for entries on higher price stocks and option plays. In a standard RTB, a minimum of 10% would remain down to the 200sma.)
Bear RSI Turn The Relative Strength Index (RSI) momentum oscillator is above 70 (traditionally seen as indicating an over-bought condition), but has also fallen in the current period. This may imply a bearish turn for price in at least the short-term.
Bear Run and Pullup There was a 30 candle bearish run of at least 12 percent. Then the current price is above one of the two prior candle Lows.
Bear StochRSI %K Turn StochasticsRSI is a momentum oscillator that applies the stochastics formula to the normal data values used for the RSI indicator. This creates a much faster-reacting momentum oscillator. Typically, values above 80 indicate an over-bought condition and less than 20 an over-sold condition. In this scan, the StochRSI value is at or above 80 AND has fallen (turned bearish) since the previous candle. This implies at least a short-term Bearish move is underway for price.
Bear StochRSI %K Turn %D Turn StochasticsRSI is a momentum oscillator that applies the stochastics formula to the normal data values used for the RSI indicator. This creates a much faster-reacting momentum oscillator. Typically, values above 80 indicate an over-bought condition and less than 20 an over-sold condition. In this scan, the StochRSI value is at or above 80 AND has fallen (turned bearish) since the previous candle. However, in this more conservative variation, the Percent D (a smoothing average) has also fallen this period. This implies at least a short-term Bearish move is underway for price.
Bear T-Line Band Breakdown The T-line Bands are trending down. The current candle High was in the Bands, but the current price has fallen below the bands. The 3 T-Line Bands are all 25-period Linear Regressions of their individual Exponential Moving Average. The Green T-Line Band (typically Top) is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Highs. The Blue (typically Middle) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Lows. The Red (typically Bottom) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 17ema of Lows.
Bear T-Line Bands - ALL The T-line Bands are trending down. The current price is between the Middle and Lower Bands. The 3 T-Line Bands are all 25-period Linear Regressions of their individual Exponential Moving Average. The Green T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Highs. The Blue T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Lows. The Red T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 17ema of Lows.
Bear Trend - 17 ema The 17ema of Last/Close has fallen at least 1.5percent each 10 candles for the last 30 candles. This implies a strong bearish trend.
Bear Tweezer Top A definite uptrend has been in place recently and then the last 2 candle Highs are identical or nearly identical as well as being the Maximum High of the last 20 candles
Bear User-Defined Avg Cross A shorter user-defined moving average has crossed below a longer user-defined moving average on the current candle. User can define the types (O, H, L, C), lengths (periods) and moving average types of these moving averages.
Bear User-Defined Avg Relationship A bearish user-defined moving average relationship where the shorter-term average is below the longer-term average
Bear User-Defined Price Bounce Price closed below a user-defined moving average in the previous candle. The current candle's High bounced off that user-defined moving average and the current price is below that average again. Bounce is defined by the user in terms of how close (plus or minus in percent) the High came to that average. User can define the type (O, H, L, C), length (periods) and moving average type of this moving average.
Bear User-Defined Price Cross Price closed above a user-defined moving average in the last candle. The current candle has closed (or is currently) below that moving average. User can define the type (O, H, L, C), length (periods) and moving average type of this moving average.
Bear User-Defined Pullup Current price is above the Low from a user-defined number of periods ago but is no more than a user-defined percentage above that Low. For example, if you choose 5 periods ago and 2 percent, this will find tickers that are higher than the lowest low of the last 5 candles, but also no more than 2 percent above that low.
Bear User-Defined Trap in Last 3 Candles User-Defined Bearish Trap within the last 3 days. This means one of the last 3 candle closes are between the two user-defined EMA. The user defines the type (O, H, L, C) and length (number of candles) for each the shorter and longer exponential averages used.
Bear User-Defined Trap in Prior Candle This is a bearish pull-up scan. This scan looks for a pull-up (as defined by a user-defined moving average) over a user-defined number of candles. It then requires that the previous candle closed between (was trapped between) two user-defined moving averages. For example, a user might define a pull-up to mean a pull-up based on the last 3 periods of a 3ema and then look for a trap where price was trapped between the 3ema and the 8ema (and the 3ema was below the 8ema) on the prior candle.
Bear User-Defined Trap This Candle Price is (trapped) between two user-defined moving averages. For example, the current Price is between the 3ema and the 8ema. However, in this bearish version, the 3ema would be below the 8ema.
Bear User-Defined Trend A Bearish trend of user-defined length (period) and user-defined gain over that period. This trend is measured as of two candles prior. For example, with daily candles, a 10-day trend would cover the period from 12d days ago to 2 days ago.
Bear V-Stop Bounce High touches V-Stop and current price below it.
Bear V-Stop Flip Red The previous candle closed above a user-defined volatility stop. The current candle has closed (or is currently) below that volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend has turned bearish.
Bear V-Stop Red The current candle has closed (or is currently) below that volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend is bearish.
Bear V-Stop Within X% Above The current candle has closed (or is currently) below that volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend is bearish. However, it also closed within a user-defined percent of that volatility stop. This may imply that price is close enough to the V-Stop to provide a good bearish entry.
Bear Yesterday in T-Bands Today Below The T-line Bands are trending down. The previous candle Close was in the Bands, but the current price has fallen below the bands. The 3 T-Line Bands are all 25-period Linear Regressions of their individual Exponential Moving Average. The Green T-Line Band (typically Top) is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Highs. The Blue (typically Middle) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 8ema of Lows. The Red (typically Bottom) T-Line Band is a Linear Regression of the 17ema of Lows.
Bearish MACD The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) Line is below the MACD Signal Line. Under standard settings, this means the 12 period-26 period MACD Line is below a 9 period EMA of that MACD Line. This would indicate bearish momentum. The MACD is a trend momentum indicator measuring the difference between two moving averages of price compared to a signal line (which is a 9-period ema of the MACD).
Below Black Candle Close Last candle was black and current price below last candle close.
Below Highest High of User-Defined Candles Looks for the current price below the highest high of a user-defined number of candles.
Below Low of High Candle Current candle close (or current price prior to close) is below the Low of the candle which also contained the High of a user-specified number of recent candles.
Below Max Open-Close of X Looks for the current price to be below the maximum Open or Close of the last user-defined number of candles.
BETA User-Defined Ticker Beta (volatility relative to overall market). So, if user specifies Beta greater than 1.0, then the scan returns tickers that are more volatile than the overall market.
Big Candle
Black Candle Close below Open of current candle.
Bollinger Band Breakout Down Price was inside the Lower Bollinger Band on the previous candle AND has broken out below the Lower Bollinger Band now. Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. So, if price is breaking below the Lower Bollinger Band, the theory is that we are in a stronger than average move. The user defines the number of periods for the central moving average and the number of standard deviations that define the bands.
Bollinger Band Breakout Up Price was inside the Upper Bollinger Band on the previous candle AND has broken out above the Upper Bollinger Band now. Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. So, if price is breaking above the Upper Bollinger Band, the theory is that we are in a stronger than average move. The user defines the number of periods for the central moving average and the number of standard deviations that define the bands.
Bollinger Band Crossing Down Keltner Channel Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. Keltner Channels are another volatility measure based on ATR (Avg. True Range). This scan looks for The Lower Bollinger Band crossing down through the Lower Keltner Channel.
Bollinger Band Crossing Up Keltner Channel Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. Keltner Channels are another volatility measure based on ATR (Avg. True Range). This scan looks for The Upper Bollinger Band crossing up through the Upper Keltner Channel.
Bollinger Band Squeeze (Less than X Percent of Price) The User-Defined Bollinger Bands are less than or equal to a user-defined width (in terms of percent of price) AND those bands have contracted (narrowed) in the last period. Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. The theory says that contracting volatility precedes a breakout move. The user defines the number of periods for the central moving average, the number of standard deviations for the bands and also how tight those bands are (in terms of percent of price).
Bollinger Lower Band Comparison Price is greater than, less than or equal to (user-defined, including combinations) the Lower Bollinger Band. Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. So, if price is below the Lower Bollinger Band, the theory is that we should expect a pullback closer (or inside) the bands soon. The user defines the number of periods for the central moving average and the number of standard deviations that define the bands.
Bollinger Upper Band Comparison Price is greater than, less than or equal to (user-defined, including combinations) the Upper Bollinger Band. Bollinger Bands are a volatility measure based on some number of standard deviations (around a central moving average) over a given number of periods. So, if price is above the Upper Bollinger Band, the theory is that we should expect a pullback closer (or inside) the bands soon. The user defines the number of periods for the central moving average and the number of standard deviations that define the bands.
Bottom Percentage Close Price closes (or is currently) within user-defined percentage of the bottom of its range for the current candle

Bull - 2 Bar Low Reversing Up Price has been rising longer-term (bullish), with the 8ema, 20sma, 34ema and 50sma stacked bullishly. Price is even still above the T-line (8ema). However, the last couple candles have had lower highs. Then, the current candle has reversed back higher (as if to resume the uptrend).
Bull 10-20-50ema Consolidation Breakout This scan looks for the 10ema, 20ema, and 50ema to be close. Then for at least a 10 candle consolidation. Finally, it looks from a breakout above the high of that consolidation. (Ralph Padula)

Bull Doji Continuation Signal (Sandwich) This is a 3-candle signal. The first candle is a large bullish candle (more than half its range is body and Close is above Open). The second candle is indecisive (small body, large wicks) and the body is located inside the range of the first candle or above. The third candle is similar to the first (more than half its range is body and Close is above Open), but is above the second candle. As the name implies this signal is an indication of a continuation of the bullish trend.
Bull Double Bottom in last 3 candle Price has been trending lower (bearish). However, it has now reached the same level as a previous reversal. User will define how close to an exact match this recent bottom was to the prior one and how long a time is allowed between the two bottoms.
Bull Engulfing Prior Candle This looks for a Bullish Engulfing signal in the previous candle (not the current candle).
Bull Fig Newton Pattern The Fig Newton pattern is a bullish trend continuation pattern where the candles resemble a Fig Newton cookie. It is a 3-candle signal where the first and last candles are large-body white candles (Close above Open) while the center candle is a large-body black candle. This signal implies at least a short-term bullish continuation of the bullish trend.
Bull Flag The Bull Flag pattern is a continuation pattern characterized by a strong run (up) followed by a consolidation (which may include a pullback) prior to the previous bullish trend continuing. This scan allows the user to define the one-week run-up (in terms of percentage of price based on the 8ema) in the 5 candles prior to the Flag consolidation beginning.

Bull Inside Day - Any Color This is an "Inside Day" scan, but can be run against all timeframes. Basically, the high and low of the current candle are inside the high and low of the previous candle. In addition, the current candle can be any color, but the current price must be some User-Defined percentage up off of the prior candle's Low.
Bull J-Hook 3 - Ed The J-Hook is a short term pullback in that strong upward move. It gets its name from the pullback, flattish bottom and steep resumption of a strong bull trend that resembles a capital "J." Often the size of the move coming out of the J-Hook matches the move that preceded the formation. Since there are so many variations of this pattern and so many different sizes, the formula is too complex to share.
Bull J-hook Pattern The J-Hook is a short term pullback in that strong upward move. It gets its name from the pullback, flattish bottom and steep resumption of a strong bull trend that resembles a capital "J." Often the size of the move coming out of the J-Hook matches the move that preceded the formation. Since there are so many variations of this pattern and so many different sizes, the formula is too complex to share.
Bull Jhook 17 The J-Hook is a short term pullback in that strong upward move. It gets its name from the pullback, flattish bottom and steep resumption of a strong bull trend that resembles a capital "J." Often the size of the move coming out of the J-Hook matches the move that preceded the formation. Since there are so many variations of this pattern and so many different sizes, the formula is too complex to share. However, this one primarily based on a 17-candle period and a trend based on 34ema.
Bull Low Today or Yesterday in T-bands Now Above The T-Line Bands are rising. The Low of either of the last two candles was inside the T-Line Bands AND the current price is above the top T-Line Band.

However, this scan also requires that the 34ema (or 50sma) is rising and that the T-line (8ema) is above the 50sma.
Bull RSI Turn The Relative Strength Index (RSI) momentum oscillator is below 30 (traditionally seen as indicating an over-sold condition), but has also risen in the current period. This may imply a bullish turn for price in at least the short-term.
Bull Run and Pullback There was a 30 candle bullish run of at least 12 percent. Then the current price is below one of the two prior candle Highs.
Bull StochRSI %K Turn StochasticsRSI is a momentum oscillator that applies the stochastics formula to the normal data values used for the RSI indicator. This creates a much faster-reacting momentum oscillator. Typically, values above 80 indicate an over-bought condition and less than 20 an over-sold condition. In this scan, the StochRSI value is at or below 20 AND has risen (turned bullish) since the previous candle. This implies at least a short-term Bullish move is underway for price.
Bull StochRSI %K Turn %D Turn StochasticsRSI is a momentum oscillator that applies the stochastics formula to the normal data values used for the RSI indicator. This creates a much faster-reacting momentum oscillator. Typically, values above 80 indicate an over-bought condition and less than 20 an over-sold condition. In this scan, the StochRSI value is at or below 20 AND has risen (turned bullish) since the previous candle. However, in this more conservative variation, the Percent D (a smoothing average) has also risen this period. This implies at least a short-term Bullish move is underway for price.

Bull User-Defined Avg Relationship A bullish user-defined moving average relationship where the shorter-term average is above the longer-term average
Bull User-Defined Price Bounce The Close was above the value of a user-defined moving average in the prior candle. The current candle Low is within a user-defined percentage of that moving average (above or below). The current price is higher than the close of the prior candle AND above that user-defined moving average. The user defines the average type, length (number of periods) and kind (O, H, L, C) of the average. The user also defines how close to an exact touch the bounce is (in terms of a percent of price). For example, a value of 0.5 would mean that the current low was within one half of a percent above or below the moving average.
Bull User-Defined Price Cross The Close of the prior candle was below or equal to a user-defined moving average. The current price is above that moving average. The user defines the moving average type, length (number of periods) and kind (O, H, L, C) of moving average.
Bull User-Defined Pullback Current price is less than the High from a user-defined number of periods ago but is no more than a user-defined percentage below that High.

Bull User-Defined Trap in Last 3 Candles User-Defined Bullish Trap within the last 3 days. This means one of the last 3 candle closes are between the two user-defined EMA. The user defines the type (O, H, L, C) and length (number of candles) for each the shorter and longer exponential averages used.
Bull User-Defined Trend A Bullish trend of user-defined length (period) and user-defined gain over that period. This trend is measured as of two candles prior. For example, with daily candles, a 10-day trend would cover the period from 12d days ago to 2 days ago.
Bull V-stop Bounce Low touches V-Stop and current price above it.
Bull V-Stop Flip Green The previous candle closed below a user-defined volatility stop. The current candle has closed (or is currently) above that volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend has turned bullish.
Bull V-Stop Green The current candle has closed (or is currently) above that volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend is bullish.
Bull V-Stop Within X% Below The current candle has closed (or is currently) above a user-defined volatility stop. This implies that the short-term trend is bullish. However, it also closed within a user-defined percent of that volatility stop. This may imply that price is close enough to the V-Stop to provide a good bullish entry.
Bullish MACD The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) Line is above the MACD Signal Line. Under standard settings, this means the 12 period-26 period MACD Line is above a 9 period EMA of that MACD Line. This would indicate bullish momentum. The MACD is a trend momentum indicator measuring the difference between two moving averages of price compared to a signal line (which is a 9-period ema of the MACD).
Candle Size - Dollars Looks for tickers where a user-defined number of candles back was greater than or equal to a specific dollar amount.
CCI Compared to X CCI is the difference between a ticker's price change and its average price change. High positive readings show prices are well above average, which means strength. Low negative readings indicate prices are well below average, which shows weakness. One use would be that moves over +100 may signal an uptrend starting, falling below -100 can indicate the start of a downtrend.
Cycle Trading Highs This scan will identify Highs for Cycle trading. In other words, the user can indicate 2 timeframes (number of candles) for which the current High is within one percent of the Maximum High. For example, if the user specified 10 and 20 as the lengths, then this scan would ensure that the current High is within 1 percent of the Highest-High of the last 10 candles (Weeks, days, hours, etc.) and also within 1 percent of the Highest-High of the last 20 candles (same timeframe as the first length).
Cycle Trading Lows This scan will identify Lows for Cycle trading. In other words, the user can indicate 2 timeframes (number of candles) for which the current Low is within one percent of the Minimum Low. For example, if the user specified 10 and 20 as the lengths, then this scan would ensure that the current Low is within 1 percent of the Lowest-Low of the last 10 candles (Weeks, days, hours, etc.) and also within 1 percent of the Lowest-Low of the last 20 candles (same timeframe as the first length).

TTM Squeeze Firing (Crossing to Off) The TTM Squeeze is an indicator of a squeezed volatility. The theory behind this indicator is that a decreased or squeezed volatility ends as a new relatively large move gets underway. This scan identifies tickers that were in a TTM Squeeze on the prior candle and are crossing out of the squeeze on this candle (meaning the next move may be underway). TTM Squeeze itself measures the relationship of the Bollinger Bands (a volatility measure based on standard deviations of price around a moving average) of 20 periods and 2 standard deviations and the Keltner Channels (another volatility measure based on Average True Range) of 20 periods with a 1.5 multiplier factor).
TTM Squeeze On The TTM Squeeze is an indicator of a squeezed volatility. The theory behind this indicator is that a decreased or squeezed volatility ends as a new relatively large move gets underway. So, identifying tickers in a TTM Squeeze may identify those tickers preparing for a next move. TTM Squeeze itself measures the relationship of the Bollinger Bands (a volatility measure based on standard deviations of price around a moving average) of 20 periods and 2 standard deviations and the Keltner Channels (another volatility measure based on Average True Range) of 20 periods with a 1.5 multiplier factor).
TTM Squeeze On and Reducing The TTM Squeeze is an indicator of a squeezed volatility. The theory behind this indicator is that a decreased or squeezed volatility ends as a new relatively large move gets underway. This scan identifies tickers that were in a TTM Squeeze on the prior candle and are approaching the end of the squeeze (the Bollinger Bands are expanding toward the Keltner Channels) indicating the next move may be approaching or just starting. TTM Squeeze itself measures the relationship of the Bollinger Bands (a volatility measure based on standard deviations of price around a moving average) of 20 periods and 2 standard deviations and the Keltner Channels (another volatility measure based on Average True Range) of 20 periods with a 1.5 multiplier factor).

User-Defined Trap in Prior Candle This is a bullish pullback scan. This scan looks for a pullback (as defined by a user-defined moving average) over a user-defined number of candles. It then requires that the previous candle closed between (was trapped between) two user-defined moving averages. For example, a user might define a pullback to mean a pullback based on the last 3 periods of a 3ema and then look for a trap where price was trapped between the 3ema and the 8ema (and the 3ema was above the 8ema) on the prior candle.
User-Defined Trap This Candle Price is (trapped) between two user-defined moving averages. For example, the current Price is between the 3ema and the 8ema. In this bullish version, the 3ema is above the 8ema.
