Pre Market scan Thinkorswim

Hello, looking for thinkscript code, for a pre market scan to spot GAP ups.

Want Gap ups (% gainer), with at least 200k volume traded, and .50 c to $7 share.

If anyone can help that would be awesome!

Thanks in advance.

Use the stock hacker

Pretty straight forward if you use the Stock Hacker.
  1. Scan tab > Stock Hacker
  2. Add stock filter (for Last, .5 to 7)
  3. Add stock filter (for Volume, min 200,000)
  4. Add study filter (for Gap_UP, it uses 2% up by default)
It found 3 stocks for today 8/18: CLTX, MTNB, EVOK.

If you click the pencil on the study filter it will bring up the thinkscript for Gap_UP.

input price1 = low;
input percentage = 2.0;
input price2 = high;
def x = 1+percentage/100;
def term = x*price2[1];
plot scan = price1 >= term;
Hope that helps
