VP of Operations,

On this week's edition of StockCharts TV's StockCharts in Focus, Grayson is back to walk you through the scanning tools on StockCharts and explain the basics of creating custom screens. He digs into one of his own custom checklist scans, breaking things down line by line to help you more clearly understand the way scans work on StockCharts. He also shows you how easy it is to create your own custom scans without writing any syntax yourself by using the Scan Components section of the workbench. At the end of the show, Grayson shares some of the key resources you need to learn more about advanced scanning, and highlights two tools that you can use to run scans in just a single click.
