Ready Combination Scan

When you open the StockEdge app, the home page will automatically open up. Click on the Premium tab and open “Ready Combination Scans” to see various ready technical scans.

Under the “Ready Combination Scan”, there are four broad categories based on Intraday and Swing bullish and bearish view. Depending upon your style of approaching the market and time frame, you may look for intraday and swing scans.

Say you click on the first option- “1 Day Bullish Scan”, which is a bullish intraday scan. You have a number of intraday scans based on the combination of different technical parameters. Let’s look into one of the scans and discuss it.

When you click on the first scan which is “Bhima”, you get the following three sub tabs as you can see in the below picture.


Further, you can click on Stocks to get a list of shares which fulfil the Criteria set in Bhima Scan. Stocks under Perfect Match are the stocks which fulfil 100% criteria. While Stocks in Almost there are the ones which fulfil 75% of the criteria.

Similarly, you may select other scans based upon your trading style whether intraday or swing.

Basic Guidelines

The first sub-tab talks about basic guidelines in general about the intraday scan which includes execution criteria, risk-reward, length of trade etc.

Suppose if someone wants to trade based on this intraday scan, here are some of the guidelines he/she should know before executing the trade:

  1. The buy side intraday position will be taken only above the high of first 15 minutes candle.
  2. Intraday target will be 1.5% from the entry; keeping 1% as a stop loss.
  3. The buy position will be taken only if the price breaks the high of first 15 minutes candle before 1 p.m.
  4. Every day at 2:30 pm one may put cost price as SL for trades which are in profit and may look to square off between 3-3:15 pm.

Some other important guidelines which you need to keep in mind when you should avoid doing the trade:

  1. In case of any important political event like Indian state election
  2. If there are any major global events like Brexit poll or US Presidential election.

iii. If there is any major movement in US market overnight (excess of 2% in Dow)

  1. When movement in Crude overnight or intraday; rises more than 5%
  2. In case India VIX moves by 5% up or down within 9:30 am from previous day’s level

More such guidelines are mentioned in General Trading Guidelines in “Intro” sub tab of the respective scans.


The best part of using combination scan is that you do not need to hunt for stocks in an arbitrary manner and moreover following the guidelines helps you to maintain discipline. With risk-reward of about 1.5:1 will fetch you profit even if you are right with 50% of your trades.
