Hi Pete, Is there a way to code a stock scanner so that at different times of day that it will adjust the amount of volume it looks for? I trade penny stocks and want liquid but not to liquid stocks to trade. At 9 I want at least 100k traded, then at noon at least 300k then 3 at least 500k then 3:30 at least 750k. Is this possable?

Scans are always based on Eastern time zone. Please review the times you entered and let us know if those are the actual Eastern times you want to use. If Eastern, your first time is at 9 am and this would be during premarket trading hours. Also, if we require 300,000 shares by noon (12:00) Eastern, then do you want the scan to return true if run at one minute after 12:00? This was implied in your statements but not exactly declared. Last question. If running the scan during the last hour of the day, should each of these time based volume filters have to be true or just the last one at 3:30 pm? Bet you didn't realize there was so many different ways to slice this.
Yes, EST is my time zone. The first scan can begin at 10 am. At 10 am I am looking for only stocks that have at least 100k traded for the day so far. Then as we progress through the day at 2:30 the list should then only show stocks that have traded at least 500k in volume. The scan needs to be ongoing from 10 am all the way to the close of the day updating constantly. Have I provided you with enough information?
