The Scanner is a discovery tool that lets you scan thousands of stocks across equities, futures and options to find top performing stocks/instruments according to user-defined search queries. The proprietary technology features 80+ indicators, advance math functions and Buy/sell integration to enable disciplined trading.
On Streak, you will find a collection of over 250+ pre-built scanners that are based on technical indicators. All the scanners created by the user are under "My Scanners". This also includes scanners that you have edited or copied from "Discover Popular Scanner".
You can easily copy existing scanners and edit them or create your own scanners.
Note: Scanning is different from Backtesting In Backtesting, the strategy used relies on historical data to study a stock’s previous behaviour and predict future movements. In scanners, the system uses a mix of historical data and near-real-time data according to the time interval to scan stocks that meet the parameters of a specific search.
