Dear MS Support

I would like to be able to scan for these type of Gap patterns , and then plot the Gap pattern within the indicator builder to plot on the chart these Gap patterns would this be possible to do within MetaStock?

Should be possible, assuming those terms can be clearly and mathematically defined.

Hi Frank, That would probably be your best option. The more detail you can provide up front as to how to define the above criteria will definitely help in turnaround time.

Dear MS Support;

Is this the scan that ChartsView UK uses for there Gap scans?

GapUp() AND V>Mov(V,20,S)

This formula specifies that the security must have experienced a gap up (i.e., today's low is greater than yesterday's high), and that today's volume must be greater than the 20 day average of the volume.

When I contacted ChartsView they told me that MetaStock created the formula.

 Thank You
