Hello

I have an idea in mind to develop a stock scanner which would scan stocks after 3.30 pm (the local time when the India stock market closes) for the next day to trade. However i do not have access to any software which does that.

Which software could help me develop this idea into a EOD stock scanner ? I have heard nothing but good things about Amibroker and Metastock and i am contemplating a purchase. Which one will be helpful to me given the above context ? currently i am using a free software which is provided by the broker.

Let me explain with a hypothetical example the scanner i am talking about. For the sake of simplicity lets assume the strategy is when simple (MA) 1 crosses simple (MA) 2 on DAILY CHARTS and a signal is generated either long/short depending on the crossover. Now can i generate a scanner which will pull up all the stocks where a crossover has taken place ? Both long and short stocks can be displayed ? This has to be done on an EOD basis and not in between market hours. Is this possible to do ? I am a complete unaware about trading software limitations and uses.

Cheers

If you can visualize, it will materialize

I would suggest ChartNexus. They provide 3 years data or so too.

The amazing part is that it is free till this point!

However the scanner and the XPertTrader are an additional cost but do not cost too much unlike MetaStock et al.
