Regularly Generate Fresh Stock ideas from your Favourite Strategies

When we select a stock to trade, a lot of analysis is needed before that. We have to do the fundamental and technical analysis. We need to apply many scans both fundamental and technical to filter out the stocks in which we want to put our money. StockEdge has made easy for us to filter out the stocks by using multiple fundamental, technical, price, volume and delivery scans, candlesticks, future and option scans. In this article we will discuss how to make combination scans with our favorite strategies:-

Before further moving on you should know that combination Scans is a paid feature.

How to create Combination scans?

  1. In the “My StockEdge” you will see the tab of “My combination scan” click on it. After clicking on it you will get the option of “Add combination scans” and other combination sans which you have already created. We can create a maximum of 20 combination scans.
  2. After clicking on “Add New Combination Scan” you have to give a name to your combination scan and then click on “add”. For example, I want to make a bullish combination scan so I name my combination scan as Bullish.
  3. A screen will come with scans and stocks tab. In the scan tab, you will see “+” sign. Click on the “+” sign and you will get multiple fundamental, technical, price, volume and delivery scans, candlesticks, future and option scans.

4. From these scans, we can choose which technical or fundamental scan we want to combine to make our strategy. As I am making a “bullish” combination scan, I am adding the below conditions. You can choose your own scans; this is just an example and no recommendation:

Examples:

Creating a Bullish Strategy using Combination Scan:

Scans:

Price Scans:
  • Closing above Previous High: This is a bullish indicator it signifies the stock is closing above yesterday’s high
  • Close Crossing Last Week High: This is a bullish indicator because it indicates the stock is moving upward and has crossed its last week’s high.

Technical Scans:

  • Relative Strength Indicator Trending Up: It is an uptrend signal of RSI value has crossed above 50 from below.
  • William % R Trending up: It is an uptrend signal if William % R has crosses -50 from below

Open Interest Scans:

  • High Interest in Future Open Interest: This is a neutral indicator because it signifies the future OI has increased

Fundamental Scans:

  • High Return on Equity: This indicates that the company is generating good returns for its equity shareholders.
  • Improved Return on Equity: This indicates that the company has shown improvement by generating a better return for its equity shareholders in the latest financial year.
  • High Increase in Quarterly Sales YoY: This indicates that the company is showing good growth in quarterly sales computed on Year on Year basis.
  • High-Interest Coverage Ratio: This indicates the company is able to generate twice as much as EBIT to cover its interest expense
  • Consistent Cash from Operations: This indicates that the company regularly generates positive operating cash flows

After we create our strategy, we need to see which stocks satisfy these conditions, go to the “stocks” tab and click on it.  The list of stocks will appear on the screen. “Perfect Match” stocks are those which fulfill all the conditions of our strategy and “Almost There” stocks are those which have some of the conditions but do not fulfill all the strategies. In the image below, we can see that there are no “Perfect Match” stocks but many “Almost There” stocks like E.I.D Parry (India) Ltd., Vedanta Ltd. etc.
