Applying your favourite scans for quick ideas.

When we start trading we often get confused about which stock to buy or which to sell. There are so many stocks listed in NSE and BSE that it is not possible to apply technical or fundamental analysis on each stock. StockEdge has many types of scans available such as technical, fundamental, option, and candlestick and so on. Out of these scans, we can choose our favorite scans which we use daily in our trading and filter out stocks accordingly.

Types of scans

There are many scans available in StockEdge, such as:

  • Price Scans: Where we can monitor significant price movements and patterns
  • Volume and Delivery Scans: We can use these scans to monitor highly traded and delivery stocks.
  • Technical Scans: Here we can get scans that fulfill technical conditions for all NSE and BSE stocks like the Relative Strength Index, Money Flow Index, and Moving Averages etc.
  • Fundamental Stocks: Here we can filter out the companies based on various fundamental parameters  such as Cash Flow, valuation, turnover, etc.
  • Future Scans: Here we can monitor those stocks with Open Interest changes and identify Future positions such as open interest scans, long position scans, and short position scans.
  • Option Scans: Here we can monitor major index options scans and stock options scans.
  • Candlesticks scan: Here we can explore the formation of candlestick patterns in the stocks such as bullish scans, bullish continuation scans, bearish scans, and bearish reversal and so on.
  • RS Scans and many more
