This OneNote is a labor of love from JohnnyQuotron (JQ) of ThinkorSwim's thinkScript Lounge (TSL). To find the Lounge (TSL), Click Support/Chat in the upper right of the desktop. Click Chat Rooms and go down to thinkScript Lounge. The lounge is staffed by volunteers, not employees, who enjoy programming.

The Universe of ThinkScript - Answers to Burning Questions!
(Originally shared here by member, Thomas. Somethin' happened and repost was required)

Please Note: This is reference material only, no suggestion of action is implied!

The link to the thinkScript Community OneNote is: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnkeHrrRM_cvgxQTl1xckINYlKhZ

Once you open the community OneNote by clicking the link here is what you will find:

A. The Welcome tab, which contains brief notes and tools along with a Search Guide

B. theManual tab, located here are links to the learning center:

http://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/howToTos/thinkManual.html
http://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/reference/thinkScript.html
http://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/howToTos/tutorials.html

C. LoungeWisdom, where you will find the following:
01. Lounge Archive - Practically every word ever written in the TSL since January 2018.

02. Education, which includes Snippets of code and information like clouds, color, columns, Combined Signal Algorithms and a boatload more. Here also is the thinkscript "Bible" that some on the trade desk will refer to: The StanL Snippets.

03. Technical Analysis, here you will find scripts on Trend, Momentum, S/R, VOL, Volume etc

04. Multiple Indicators and Scripts

05. ORB - Opening Range Breakout scripts and information.

Numbers 06 through 13 are full of items like Fundamentals, Candles, Options, Futures, Forex, Chart Set-ups etc.

14. Here is JQ's workshop, inside there is a tab for other notebooks; UpD Creeks OneNote and Duncan's OneNote, which are his notes from a Tasty Trade Options Meetup Group.

15. Vendors of different scripts

16. Books and Authors, even here there is a lot of Material from many wise Traders and Investors.

If you have read this far, congratulations, you are not only serious but inquisitive which is a very good thing.

This is a treasure. Thanks so much. I've got a scan for stocks with selling climaxes I found but am getting an error message when trying to enter it.
Here's the code

Code:
SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 20) is greater than or equal to 10
 
SimpleMovingAvg("price" = VOLUME, "length" = 20) is greater than or equal to 40000
 
SimpleMovingAvg("price" = VOLUME, "length" = 2) is greater than SimpleMovingAvg("price" =  
VOLUME, "length" = 250)*2
 
BollingerBandwidth("length" = 10)."Bandwidth" is greater than 
simpleMovingAvg("price" = bollingerBandwidth ("length" = 10)."bandwidth", "length" = 250)*2
 
Lowest(RSIWilder( 14 )."RSI", 5) is less than 25

When I tried to paste it everything turned red except the first line so I'm not sure what the problem is. Thanks

StochasticFast("k period" = 14)."FastK" is less than 10

Hey Ben,

Do you have a Stoch Divergence Script like this?

Also, one that identifies price channels and trendlines that is static and doesn't disappear after price moves?

Several issues: Always use a plain text file (.txt) using Notepad++ or other text editor, never a Word Processor. The semi-colons are missing at the end of each code line. I don't see "DEF's" anywhere. That scan code you posted was not the complete code. Always post complete code including date and author.
Look for other examples in in the Onenote.
Please read the manual, reference and tutorials to become familiar.
The only way to get better is trial and error.
Keep trying.

Just for reference here is what was posted.

http://stockcharts.com/articles/scanning/2014/02/scanning-to-find-stocks-with-selling-climaxes.html

The scan criteria below are designed to find stocks that became oversold on high volume and are still trading near their lows.

SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 20) is greater than or equal to 10

SimpleMovingAvg("price" = VOLUME, "length" = 20) is greater than or equal to 40000

SimpleMovingAvg("price" = VOLUME, "length" = 2) is greater than SimpleMovingAvg("price" =  
VOLUME, "length" = 250)*2

BollingerBandwidth("length" = 10)."Bandwidth" is greater than 
simpleMovingAvg("price" = bollingerBandwidth ("length" = 10)."bandwidth", "length" = 250)*2

Lowest(RSIWilder( 14 )."RSI", 5) is less than 25
StochasticFast("k period" = 14)."FastK" is less than 10

@tenacity11 This was already worked on by Richard Houser and Waylock in 2014. If they couldn't get you the answer, I can't either. Those people in that thread are Head and Shoulders above my ability.
Please spend the time searching the scripts in the onenote for something comparable.
Read the 200 page StanL script manual.
or - anyone else can jump in here to help out.

Thank You. I'm new to code. I'll keep looking.

Thank you markos & ben for informing me about the universe, good to know.
Maybe I am missing the point though, or seriously my brain is not up to speed.
I am suppose to post my request here, because I did not see script that comes close to what I am requesting.
In the past, my job as a mentor was to guide my follow workers, help them with their mistakes or challenges.
I thought this was a place, where I could learn from a mentor, I am wrong?

@lee-I-O=coke-A You posted in the right place, the questions forum. Unfortunately, as far as I am able, writing a script like that would take me forever plus one day. And then I would not know if it was correct according to Elliott Wave Theory.
That was my reason for suggesting something more basic. Did you Google SyracusePro + thinkScript? That may be your best bet if you must have that study.

Concerning the last 2 lines on mentorship, I will leave that up to @BenTen to answer.
