Does a multiple timeframe EMA watchlist exist?

I've looked around before but without much luck. Could anyone point me in the direction to pick up or build a watchlist that does the following? The built in ToS scans didn't appear to work because it looks like it compares the EMA for all time frames to the selected timeframe instead of comparing the daily EMA to the smaller time frame.

What I'd like to do is compare the 9 day EMA to the current 5 minute, 15 minute, 30 minute, 60 minute 4 hour price. If the ema is above the 5, 15,30, 60 minute price, but below the 4 hour price include the stocks in a watchlist.
 
@mcnscott Welcome to the usethinkscript forums... It's not possible to have multiple aggregation periods in Custom Watchlist Columns, just as they can't be used in Scans... That's probably why you aren't finding anything...
 
Interesting, I too was looking at Olivia's process (which seems intriguingly simple) and tried to build a scanner - I guess we have to open a 6 panel grid and flip thru the watch list.
I have not looked closer at other screeners (chart mill etc).

@rad14733 That explains why I couldn't get it to work and get getting can't have a second day error in my scan. Thank you! Pelonsax made a pretty cool multiple time frame grid that has a box that turns green and depending on if the price is above or below current price. I wonder if the same thing can be done with daily EMA?

I was able to make multi TF’s work for a watchlist. Maybe this can be expanded on for what you’re looking for. https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...n-for-watchlist-column-multi-timeframes.7764/
