This video tutorial will highlight some advanced techniques for customizing your TradeShark Intelliscan. In this video you will learn how to create multiple Intelliscan tabs to better organize your search conditions and market selections. 

To demonstrate, I will create an Intelliscan including stocks, and organize the scan to search for short, medium, and long term trend conditions. First we will start with a new Intelliscan, drop in our selection of stocks, and title the scan.

I will title this scan, short term cross, and be sure to select the short trend template. 

Here, we can see that the default short trend template conditions have been preselected. All of which pertaining to the short term crossovers and trend direction. I will filter the search criteria to be bullish, and change the crossover periods to 1, ensuring we are identifying fresh trading opportunities.

Now let’s add medium term trend conditions. Instead of dragging the medium term crossover conditions and indicators into this area from the indicator tray, I can select ‘add new Intelliscan’ from the dropdown above. I will want to title this scan medium term cross, and also select the medium trend template. Additionally, we can choose to copy the same selection of markets from the previous scan.

Once I click OK, we can see a new Intelliscan tab has been created, however, this includes medium term trend conditions. I’ll go ahead and quickly organize this area, and filter out recent bullish crossovers like I did for the short term scan. Now, I will go ahead and repeat this process for long term trend conditions, so that you can follow along.

Now that our Intelliscan is set to search for short, medium, and long term bullish crossovers, we simply need to save the scan. From the dropdown above, select save as, and title the scan.  Long Stocks would be an appropriate name, since this scan now only includes bullish trend conditions.

Now that everything is saved, we will notice the title of our Scan ‘Long Stocks’  just above each Intelliscan tab, which now organizes all of our search conditions nicely.

Depending on your preferences, you may wish to use the additional Intelliscan tabs to organize and separate different asset classes like futures or forex.

To demonstrate this approach, I will go ahead and create a new Intelliscan that includes Futures, Forex, and ETFs.

Instead of scanning for short, medium, or long term criteria, I will search for similar trend conditions across these different market groups.

For example, Ill create a new scan starting with the futures markets and title this Intelliscan ‘futures’, since we are going to separate our Intelliscan selections by asset class. I will select the medium trend template, and click ok.

Now I can set my search conditions to be bullish or bearish for this example lets be bearish.

To add a new Intelliscan tab that includes ETF’s I will need to once again select ‘add new Intelliscan’. 

However, this time I will label it ETF, and I will again choose matching search conditions found in the medium term template. However, this time I don’t want to copy markets from a previous scan, since I will be adding ETF markets instead of more futures.

Because I did not copy markets from a previous scan, I will be presented with an empty area. Now I simply need to drag and drop my ETF selection into this scan. 

Notice how we have the same columns, however, have chosen to include a different selection of markets to occupy our search tab. I can change all the search conditions to be bearish to match my futures scan.

Then I can repeat this same process for the forex market.

Now that all the market selections are organized I can choose to save the Intelliscan as we did in the previous example, however, this time I will title the scan ‘Short Futures ETF’.

Should I wish to open up a previously saved scan, I simply need to select open scan, identify the proper file and choose open.

Notice how quickly I can revert back to the previous Intelliscan that identifies bullish short medium and long term crossovers.

You’ll want to experiment with modifying templates and saving different Intelliscan tabs, however, once things are set-up to match your trading style, Tradeshark’s Intelliscan will drastically reduce the amount of time needed to perform daily market analysis.
