Past Earnings Scan For ThinkOrSwim


I'm interested in shorting large cap stocks that are downtrending after a negative earnings announcement. The thing is that TOS's earnings study is inherently forward-looking (ie: the study only looks for stocks that will have an earnings announcement in the next x bars).

What would be the custom study coding for a scan that pulls up stocks that have had an earnings announcement in the past 24 hours?

Hi All.

I am trying to create a filter to remove any stocks that have had earnings in the last x period, for this example i'll say the last 10 days.

I have the code below with returs stocks that had earnings exactly 10 days ago. What I need assistance with is how to make it filter only stocks that had had earnings in the last 10 days.

ie I want it to return anything that hasnt had earnings in the last 10 days, not specifically 10 days, I'm guessing it may be the '>' greater than syntax, I just dont know how to format it.

Any assistance much appreciated.

def isBefore = HasEarnings(EarningTime.BEFORE_MARKET);
def isAfter = HasEarnings(EarningTime.AFTER_MARKET);
def isDuringOrUnspecified = HasEarnings() and !isBefore and !isAfter;
def r = isBefore or isDuringOrUnspecified or isAfter [10];

plot a = r[10];
