stocks that have had three successive higher closes


Is it possible to have a scan for intraday charts? For example, I’d like to periodically run a scan which selects stocks that have had three successive higher closes within the last few bars (1 minute, 5 minutes, etc) so I can take quick buy/sell action. If yes, where can I see examples of intraday scan. I can customize as I need once I see how such scans are scripted.

I just realized that an intra-day scan, like I'm wanting, may not be possible since quotes have not been stored on a quote server yet. Is this true or is it still possible?

I had to update the title used for this post. The title you entered "Intraday scan" was far too vague and did not provide sufficient context. The ideal question title consists of between 6 t0 8 words and clearly describes the context of your question.

For the scan, there is no difference from one time frame to the next. Intraday works just the same as daily or weekly. In fact the code for custom scans is completely agnostic to the time frame. You select the time frame through a built-in button when adding the Study Filter.

Here is the code for three consecutive higher closes, regardless of time frame:

plot scan = close > close[1] and close[1] > close[2];
