I have a couple of index charts set for 15 second refresh open on one of my monitors during market hours. Late last week and again today, I am having an issue. I have had to manually update/refresh a few times and right now both charts have changed to reduced settings instead of my default settings.
I am a heavy of Stockcharts.com charts. I only use its free service as it is adequate to my needs.
I have had a look at the free SCTR and it looks interesting though it is a bit limiting on Toronto stocks since it seems to lump the Venture and TSX together as well you cannot sort out sectors and industries.
I assume this is possible with full membership.
I tested the tickers it chose and they seem pretty good. Much better than their technical scans in my opinion.
Could you comment on your usage of this interesting application?
I have been a subscriber for over 16 years now. In that time, I have gone through periods of using the scan engine a lot, reading tons of the great information on the site, and trying almost every indicator for at least a short time.
The SCTR does look very interesting and I have it as one of the 10 indicators on my default charts. I added it after reading a great blog by Chip Anderson (I think). Or it might have been an article he wrote for the Newsletter.
The SCTR is there but I don't really use (other than confirmation of what I am seeing) or rely on it.
My go-to indicators, arrived at after a lot of years of trial and error, are CMF, PMO, the EMA's (I use 20, 50, and 200), ADX, MACD, and Full Stochastic. Of those, the EMA's and ADX are critical to most of my decisions.
Someone else here on the forum may have a better perspective on the SCTR.
