Finding Bullish Stocks On Weekly and Daily Time Frame For ThinkOrSwim

Finding Bullish Stocks On Weekly and Daily Time Frame For ThinkOrSwim
I know there has been much talk on finding trending or bullish stocks.

After playing around with the scanning feature and using the market phase indicator it really has become easy to find stocks based on bullish, bearish, accumulation, or whatever phase you are looking for. Below are some screenshots and explanations.

It works extremely well. The scans are set up to look for weekly and daily Bullish trends.

What I found interesting is setting it to look for stocks in the accumulation phase gave some great results.

I also set it to look for stocks that just went from accumulation to the bullish phase.

By doing this I limited my scans to only the strong trending stocks.

I was also using "ichimoko" but you could use whatever method you like of course.

This scan just limits the strong trending stocks. If there are any suggestions or improvements please let me know.

I am scanning for only bullish stocks in this scan. I will add the accumulation phase and give an example.
Setting the scans becomes easy and utilizing both weekly and daily time frames hone in on good stocks.
I also added the market phase in my scan column. Hope this will help some people.

I'm defiantly going to have to give this a try. I have been trying to find scans that can pick out bullish patterns for day trading. Everyone can come up with a strategy but the better question would be is how to find the right stock to trade and from what it looks like this does just that. Thank you !!

MerryDay had the Market_Phase on her chart setup, I believe. I use it to find only stocks that are trending or getting ready to. I also have it added to my watch list columns.
I also did two scans, one for weekly trends and then daily trends.
It has helped in narrowing down what I'm looking for

Sorry for so many posts.
the code below is the one to use for your watch list, as it blocks out things that are not needed.
Add this to the watch list

Ok. Here is a scan I ran today using Ben10's "buy the dip" indicator.
As you can see, only one stock shows a bullish configuration, so I concentrated on it. It looks good as the Stochastic/momentum is in the suitable range. I'm keeping my eye on this one as a possible play. It is also right at the 50mday moving average.

for the first scan, do you use the same market phase study and change the timeframe to WK?
my scan script goes like this: MarketPhase). "buphase" is true, which is different from your with "v period........"
