code for advancing capital in S&P500


New member
I'm looking for code to incorporate into a study that looks up the total value of advancing capital in S&P 500. Is this possible?
Define advancing capital.

I searched "advancing capital S&P500."

The top result linked right back here to this page.

Perhaps you're asking about some variation of breadth internals? advancers, advancing volume, etc.?
Ok maybe I should rephrase it. Instead of a cumulative measure of advancing issues, it would be a cumulative measure of how much money is represented by those advancing issues, i.e. the total market capital represented by the advancing issues. I hope that makes sense. This is so I can include in some indicator experiments.

You can spot these figures under MarketWatch > Visualize > Visualization: Index Watch > Watchlist S&P 500. Listed under Capital (Advancing) and Capital (Declining). I have a screenshot but can't figure out how to attach it from imgur.

Unless that raw data is disseminated in a manner similar to how $ADVN and $DECN are, I do not believe there is any way to accomplish this via ThinkScript. Further more, ThinkScript does not provide access to all of the data necessary to calculate it from scratch, and even if it did, you would have to manually access multiple data points for all 500 symbols from the same script, which I assume would wreak some kind of havoc similar to the dreaded 'data subscription limit exceeded' error. So, no, I do not think it is possible.
