Hi Team,

new to thinkorswim, given i am living on the other side of the world (when US market closes, its 12am here).

Hence will need to scan for the stocks in a specific period (date) , mostly yesterday/day before ...
As I need to find highest gainers % and high vol stocks, but locked in specific time frame

Can anyone guide what to code to write ? it will be inside (thinkSript Editor) right ?

thanks

I'm interested in being able to looks for setups in the past so I can backtest and test scans.
So, if I'm interested in the second week of March 2020 - how can I run a scan on thinkorswim that will return all the stocks doing x,y and z for the morning of the first trading day of that week etc.

That is not possible...YOU can however, scan on the DAILY timeframe just for the day of.
