How to write a Tradingview breakout scanner.

  1. Define the Breakout Criteria: The first step in creating a breakout scanner is to define the criteria for what qualifies as a breakout. This could be a price moving above a certain resistance level, crossing over a moving average, or breaking out of a chart pattern.

  2. Select the Time Frame: Decide on the time frame that you want to scan for breakouts. This could be a daily, weekly, or intraday time frame, depending on your trading strategy.

  3. Set the Market: Choose the market or security that you want to scan for breakouts. This could be a specific stock, index, or cryptocurrency.

  4. Choose Indicators: Next, select the technical indicators that you want to use to identify breakouts. This could include moving averages, Bollinger Bands, or price oscillators.

  5. Configure the Indicator Settings: Adjust the indicator settings to your desired parameters. This will depend on the market and time frame you have selected.

  6. Set the Scan Parameters: Specify the conditions for a breakout to be triggered, such as a certain percentage increase in price or a crossover of two indicators.

  7. Add Additional Filters: You may want to add additional filters to your scan, such as minimum volume or a market cap threshold.

  8. Test and Refine: Before saving your breakout scanner, test it on historical data to ensure that it is accurately identifying breakouts. You may need to refine the parameters to improve the accuracy of the scanner.

  9. Save and Use: Once you are satisfied with the results of your scanner, save it and use it in your trading strategy. You can set alerts to be notified when a breakout occurs, or use the scanner to generate trade ideas.
