KBB Squeeze Scanner and Chart Results not matching


Hi Pete,

Thanks again for this site.  What a great resource!

When I setup a scanner using the indicator, as shown in the video, I set the KBB field to 1 and get a list of tickers that should be forming a green dot after any number of reds. However when I chart the results, most/all of the tickers are showing a series of green dots instead of just one. I have selected “daily” time frame in the scanner metric and I am charting daily bars. I am using the latest Trade Station software. Is the software working on the latest version? Am I missing something in the scanner setting? TPB is an example ticker…

Thank you!

Thanks for the quick response - I had originally tried the second method because I was already in EasyLanguage.  I pasted the .txt files again, and  logged out and back in and everything did verify as working.  On the radar screen, I was still showing all 1s for the KBB field.  I ended downloading the .eld file and copying over the files I had created and everything works great!  Surprisingly the easy method was easiest!!  I compared the working code in easy language to the .txt files and could not see any differences but there must have been something.  Thanks for the help!

First thing to note is that whenever you reference something in a forum post it is absolutely essential you provide a link so that other viewers are able to get the full context of your request.

The video referenced in your request can be found here:


Second thing to mention is that you should always include a screenshot showing how you have things set up. I know you explained how your scan was set up but we can't actually see it to spot anything that might have been missed.

I just spent a few minutes to watch that video and followed the instructions to create a brand new scan. It returned a single stock, ticker symbol EMTL. When I bring that up on the chart it shows a single green dot on the KBB Squeeze.

Screenshot below shows the result and the settings used. Note that I am using TradeStation version 10.0 and I always process updates immediately.
