I am also running Finviz, please see my settings at the attached picture. If anyone wants to start a thread in which people share their settings from which they think they might work, I will join. For me this one is not bad. No idea if one needs the new high at the 50-Day High/low filter, on days like today it may give back some findings. If not I pass on this setting.
You also may find usefull the scanner of prorealtime www.prorealtime.com. You need to subscribe with prorealtime but the EOD data feed which you can use for scanning is permanently free of charge. At least the German website offers free real time data feed access at the moment for free for a limitated period of time. Of course it is a disadvantage that you need to subscribe with a datafeed later to run the scanner intraday, so in general the scanner is not free.
The basic scanner seem to be too simple to run it with confidence, but if you are familiar with programming you can program your own scanner, or let the scanner program from the company if you have a good setup.
The path to the manuals about this program is this: https://www.prorealtime.com/en/help-manual/probuilder-custom-indicators
There is another function which should be called something like "prorealtime trend recognition" in English language (I just see the German version). This function is preconfigured, so you can immediately jump into joy. The attached chart is Procter & Gamble, the filter is set on "triangle near support", and the exchange is "US Non Tech 200". Maybe someone wants to go long on this chart. For the lazy people around you, the lines and channels come up automatically on the charts if you click the button.
Well, I do not use this program, but this is as I started watching stocks just for a while and still hang with Finviz, from which I dont want to say it`s better. Prorealtime is something that I think looks good, and maybe I will move over there later. Finviz also does not provide intraday scans for free. Disadvantage for you and me at prorealtime is that you also need to pay not too less for the intraday datafeed and so for the scan, for a monthly subscription you pay a base fee of €25 and additionally €10 for each datafeed, NASDAQ, NASDAQ OTCBB, NYSE & NASE AMEX (no idea if you need all of them for your analysis). Finally, I still want to say that I am not in any relation with the company.

I am using ProScreener in ProRealTime. I am always buying on weakness - but only if the stock is above MA200 (on daily chart). And only if the market (S&P-500) is above the 12 month moving average in the monthly chart.
I am daytrading US equities and try to find clear intraday levels and consolidations. Also I like to trade stocks moving opposite to the market. Such strong/weak stocks with good consolidation setups give one of the most reliable trades for me.
My choice for today (I used Trade-ideas and StrategyDesk earlier):
1. finviz.com - to find initial list of symbols using rough filters (volume, ATR, price)
2. vismast.com - desktop real-time visual screener to find my setups during trading hours (I think it is new screener because there is first version only).

Yeah, for the start it's good enough. It's a little bit annoying that I can't choose my exact values to use, but by the time that kind of fidelity is going to matter, I will probably just implement it myself. I'm just getting into stock trading, the ease of use and it being free matter more to me right now.
