As a member, you can use the Advanced Scan Workbench to create and run your own custom technical scans on the more than 50,000 symbols in our database. By allowing you to build scans with your own unique criteria, our advanced scan engine makes it quick and easy to pinpoint stocks, ETFs or other securities that fit exactly what you're looking for.
