I would like to build a scan that will scan for inside days, inside days with the narrowest range in 4 days, inside days with the narrowest range in 7 days.

Does such a scan exist? I am new to TOS and not sure how i could do this or if it does exist how I would import this into my scans.

I want to run this scan late in the trading day to see which stocks on my custom watchlist fit any of these criteria so that i may enter them before the close of the day.


Thank you

Here it ts:

 
Code
                            
def count 4;
def range high low;
def inside_bar high <=high[1] and low >= low[1];
plot s inside_bar && lowest(range,count); 
there's a setting "count" in first line. This is the number of bars to search lowest range from

Thanks growex. This installed very nicely as a scan as well as a column in the watchlist.
Best, Doug
