Sorting MarketScan Results
Previous  Top  Next

You can sort or reverse sort the content of your scan file or analysis results in two ways:

·Click on the table heading of the desired sort field  
·Click a cell in a column and then click the "Table Headings" menu. Click "Sort."  

Applications of sorting your file can range from a simple sorting by name, symbol, exchange, etc., to arranging analysis results in order of the best performance.

Important note: A random system will find a few stocks that have 100% winning trades. When sorted, something will always turn up on top. Do not assume that this means you have a sure-fire system. Instead, look for underlying economic principles and for confirming evidence. We recommend against using any trading algorithm that does not show a profit in a substantial majority of stocks.
