ORB Scanner /w TTMs and SlowStoch

Hello Everyone,

Been creeping on here for a while now and appreciate all the great information.

I seem to have bumped into a huge wall no matter what I do with my scanner.

I originally was able to have an ORB scanner created (just pants out the first 15 minutes of market then gives me back the stocks that are above their 15-minute ORB highs).

However I wanted to add the John Carter studies and SlowStoch.

Ideally, the scanner would come back with results that fit the following:

-Stock is above 15minute ORB high (this is already coded into the scanner and works)
-Stock has green-dot on TTM_Squeeze (VolComp is green)
-Stock has a bar up on TTM_Squeeze (Histogram is a bar going up)
-Stock has a Wave2high above the Zeroline on TTM_Wave
-Stock has a Wave1 above the Zeroline on TTM_Wave

Does anybody know how to go about this?

Here is what I have so far: http : // imgur . com / rb5e3ac

Thanks in advance to you all!

here it is:

def hist = reference TTM_Squeeze.Histogram;
def w1 = reference TTM_Wave.Wave1;
def w2h = reference TTM_Wave.Wave2High;
def bup = BollingerBandsSMA(close, 0, 20, -2, 2).UpperBand;
def blow = BollingerBandsSMA(close, 0, 20, -2, 2).LowerBand;
def Ub = KeltnerChannels(0,1.5,20,close,"SMA").Upper_Band;
def Lb = KeltnerChannels(0,1.5,20,close,"SMA").Lower_Band;
def squeeze = bup < ub and blow > Lb;
plot scan = !squeeze and w1 > 0 and w2h > 0 and hist > hist[1];

i think we'll need to fine tune it

Thank you to note this ....it worked good before..i think we'll need to segregate the conditions and make several simple scan queries instead of such complex one
