Scan for Strategy Trigger?


New member
I have several strategies saved on my thinkorswim platform. Each of these trigger a "buy" or a "sell" order based on a variety of preset criteria. Is there a way to simply run a scan for all stocks that have a "buy" trigger on a saved strategy? Or do I have to build individual scans that incorporate each specific criteria in the underlying strategy that would produce a "buy" trigger?
@DB01 The Scanner is built in 3 sections:
Section One = All of the following If you place your triggers in this section, only stocks for which all triggers are true will be returned
Section Two = None of the following If you place your triggers in this section, only stocks for which no triggers are true will be returned
Section Three= Any of the following If you place your triggers in this section, all stocks for which at least one trigger is true will be returned

Merry Day, hilarious that you are the one who responded to this. The question came about when I was looking at a strategy that you yourself posted. Two weeks ago you posted a Stochastic/EMA crossover strategy. It doesn't work when saved as a study, only as a strategy obviously. But I can't run a scan against a strategy, only a study. If I wanted to scan the stock universe for all the stocks that had a "buy" trigger today, within your strategy, can I do it? I tried building one with each of the individual study criteria but none of the returned stocks had a buy trigger. I think where I'm getting hung up is the "#AND continues higher"
