Hi I was just trying to check reliability of scanner in pi since they have put a trade button right next to alert in case you don’t want to see the chart yourself. My script was HIGH= REF(HIGH,1) AND REF(HIGH,1) = REF(HIGH,2) AND RSI(CLOSE,7)<40 (three highs must be equal) on three minutes candlestick chart. As shown in screenshot 'WRONG ALERT ’ I get an alert on Fortis at 10:09 am 28/08/17 but as shown in screenshot “WRONG ALERT 2” the condition was not met. When condition was finally met after sometime (check last 4 candles in wrong alert 2) there was no alert at all. When I raised the query to support , they told me that scanner can’t save data for more than one minute.
My questions are–
- Am I not suppose to use scanner for three minutes candlestick charts??
- Are scanners any reliable ?
- Is there something wrong i am doing in scripting.
Also there were moments when all the script in scanner light up yellow at once.
Please help…Any advice will be appreciated.
