# Scan for RSI above 70 more than 0 count today

i'm looking to scan stock on 1 minute time scale has RSI more than 70 more than 0 time within today.

Code:
``````#

input length = 14;
input over_Bought = 70;
input over_Sold = 30;
input price = close;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
input showBreakoutSignals = no;

def NetChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, price - price[1], length);
def TotChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, AbsValue(price - price[1]), length);
def ChgRatio = if TotChgAvg != 0 then NetChgAvg / TotChgAvg else 0;

def RSI = 50 * (ChgRatio + 1);
def OverSold = over_Sold;
def OverBought = over_Bought;

plot scan = overbought >= 1 ;``````

i have no idea what this is supposed to mean. please elaborate.

....more than 0 time within today.....

your Plot statement is comparing a constant to a constant so it's always going to be true..
70 > 1

you would want something like this,
plot z = rsi > over_Bought;

then figure out another condition and add it to that formula with AND.

I'm looking for scanner to count the number of RSI cross from below 70 to above 70 on 1minute chart.

the red count is RSI count with no delay count , counting each time RSI cross above 70 as 1 count.

the yellow count is RSI count with a delay count. counting each RSI cross above 70 after 30 bars delays. (i think this is more difficult to code than red count)

yellow count is more realistic in trading but red is also good.

I haven't run this as a scan, but the following script will count the number of times RSI crosses above 70 within the current day and display the count in a label. Obviously, in the chart you posted above, it would count all eight. You will have to work on filtering the minor crosses out. I compare this to a technique known as 'debouncing' in terms of automation. You could do so with bar counting, time delays, combining with other parameters, or defining a minimum drop in RSI in order to again count a 70 level cross (looks like you understand that with your 30 bar delay).

Code:
``````input length = 14;
input over_Bought = 70;
input over_Sold = 30;
input price = close;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
input showBreakoutSignals = no;

def NetChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, price - price[1], length);
def TotChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, AbsValue(price - price[1]), length);
def ChgRatio = if TotChgAvg != 0 then NetChgAvg / TotChgAvg else 0;

def RSI = 50 * (ChgRatio + 1);
def OverSold = over_Sold;
def OverBought = over_Bought;

def Active = GetDay() == GetLastDay(); #Today
def var = RSI crosses above 70;
def cumulative = if Active and !Active[1] then var else if Active then cumulative[1] + var else cumulative[1];
plot scan  = cumulative;

AddLabel (yes, "COUNT " +  (scan), color.dark_green  );``````

thank u . looking good.
i do up a RSI cross down version also.
how do i combine the 2 into 1 singular code to save space?

Code:
``````input length = 14;
input over_Bought = 70;
input over_Sold = 30;
input price = close;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
input showBreakoutSignals = no;

def NetChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, price - price[1], length);
def TotChgAvg = MovingAverage(averageType, AbsValue(price - price[1]), length);
def ChgRatio = if TotChgAvg != 0 then NetChgAvg / TotChgAvg else 0;

def RSI = 50 * (ChgRatio + 1);
def OverSold = over_Sold;
def OverBought = over_Bought;

def Active = GetDay() == GetLastDay(); #Today
def var = RSI crosses below 30;
def cumulative = if Active and !Active[1] then var else if Active then cumulative[1] + var else cumulative[1];
plot scan = cumulative;

AddLabel (yes, "COUNT " + (scan), color.dark_red );``````

You will only be able to run a scan for one plot (up or down) at a time, but if you want it on your chart just add this to the end of your code.

def varLow = RSI crosses below 30;
def cumulativeLow = if Active and !Active[1] then varLow else if Active then cumulativeLow[1] + varLow else cumulativeLow[1];
plot scanLow = cumulativeLow;

AddLabel (yes, "COUNT " + (scanLow), color.dark_red );

thank u

i'm going to guess that this will end up being too complex for a scan.

you made 2 posts, and still didn't explain what needs to happen.

scans look for a condition.
counting occurances of something is a number, so half of a condition, half of what is needed for a scan.
what number do you wish to compare the count to, to provide a true output from a scan? 3, 6, 11, 25,....?

'delay count' is vague and doesn't describe what is desired.

The location of the numbers on your image aren't precise enough to tell us WHEN you want to assign a number.

if there are 3 crossings within 30 bars, do you want to find,
the first crossing?
or the last crossing?

what defines the Range of bars to look at, to find crossings?
from the current bar, 30 bars before it and 30 bars after it?
15 bars before current bar and 15 bars after it?
or something else?

"yellow count is more realistic in trading but red is also good."
red is what actually happened, so red is realistic, whatever that means. this sentence has no meaning.

look at the chart, and describe what has to happen, in short statements, using only words that describe actions or items on the chart.
bar, barnumber, open, high, low, close, crossing,
(ex. there is no delay on a chart , so don't use that word).

You will only be able to run a scan for one plot (up or down) at a time, but if you want it on your chart just add this to the end of your code.

def varLow = RSI crosses below 30;
def cumulativeLow = if Active and !Active[1] then varLow else if Active then cumulativeLow[1] + varLow else cumulativeLow[1];
plot scanLow = cumulativeLow;

AddLabel (yes, "COUNT " + (scanLow), color.dark_red );
hi how do i change the code to count on 9.30am to 4pm only? exclude extended hours works.

sorry , i dont know how to quantify the exact thing i wanted.
but the code is working well from me.

thanks for your time
