Predefined Scans

Predefined Scans

These scans are used to create our Predefined Scan Results page. The official Predefined Scan results are run with a variety of filters in addition to the criteria you see on this page - most notably they all include a clause which limits the results to stocks with an average volume of at least 40,000 shares over the past 20 days. Extra members can run these scans by copying and pasting them from this page into our Advanced Scan Workbench.

Note: StockCharts.com makes no claims about the effectiveness of these scans for trading purposes. These scans should only be used for educational purposes as a way for you to develop your own personal trading strategy.
