I went to the SOS platform but I dont see any way to enter the custom study without knowing the Think Script formula. Can you help? Many thanks for your response
@Leo1015 CMF[1] is shorthand for CMF from 1 bar ago.
ChaikinMoneyFlow()."CMF" is greater than ChaikinMoneyFlow()."CMF" from 1 bars ago
ChaikinMoneyFlow()."CMF"       >         ChaikinMoneyFlow()."CMF"[1]
The above are the exact same statements. The filter is saying: we only want to see equities where Chaikin Money Flow on the current candle is greater than the previous candle. Because we are looking for when CMF starts to up-trend from the bottom of the oscillator.

This logic scans for up-trends. It works with oscillators, moving averages, and most other custom and TOS standard variables. Kinda cool, huh!

As far as time frames are concerned, Money Flow Indicators work on all time frames. I am a longer-term trader so 2hr charts are a mainstay.
