Not very customizable, but they have a alot of canned ones that work pretty good. TradeStation does as well but can be a real pain to use and is a tad expensive. eSignal has addon software that will do it as well, but they can be a pain at times. You just have to find what works best for you. In the office I trade in we made(hired some programmers) our own.

As for buying at the open. There are several things to be considered when using a MOO order. Order imbalances, news on stock and sector, opening indication and how the stock opens. For NASDAQ, I would wait till the bell then just hit the offer. NYSE and AMEX require a little more thought, specialist or as I refer to them, thugs, usually use the opening print to help their own positions or entry/exit of positions. At the same time the "Street money" also uses this time to get the larger part of their positions on. I think a case by case approach would work best in these markets. As for the OTCCB, have no clue but probably most like NASDAQ

I believe the NYSE calls anything that "Prints on the tape" a trade. As for a pattern daytrader, I believe it's defined by four orders executed then covered within the defined time frame. I forgot most of my 24 stuff when I started trading. I think you go to the SEC or NASD websites and search for "pattern Daytrader" and find the definition. I'm pretty sure it's been modified to make more money for the big firms on the street as well.

After reading Mary's filter on playing tech stocks when the QQQQ have hit RSI low, I wondered if it possible to apply the same type of filter to an index. The S&P, Oil, retail....etc. I'm awful at writing scans, so any help would be appreciated.

Earnings, quarterly and yearly probably affect even more. That usually causes the "Big" money to jump ship.
Losing a big contract or deal.
Not winning a lawsuit.
Losing a patent.
Merger called off.
New products from competition.
Leadership of the company leaving, retiring or running away(ENE).

The filter gives out different stocks each day. Each of these stocks is affected differently each day by other events. For the past week GE has been a real good one for me, but today, with the earnings news the "Battle lines" weren't very good, today. This filter has been nothing but a money maker. Use the Sl's and RL's in SBC for the past week. I have been jumping in and out in big blocks making a dime here and there and it got me into a bigger move that gave me .25 on 20k shares.
For scalping, this is a great filter, I have even started to apply it to the Muddy style bottom picks once I've entered them, and it has been a fairly good tool.

From a scalping point of view I would say TheRumpledones new "Battle lines". It gives me several different stocks I can play several times a day and play with size, especially if there is news in the stock or sector.
It's also a fairly good tool for determining near term tops and bottoms in the market by using the QQQQ and SPY. Adding the Grid Iron calculator expanded the number of stocks greatly, which allowed me to play my favorites.

I don't costner, the news on this stock is pretty big and overrides and technicals you might see. They could save WalMart 100's of millions of $$$$ a years and they recieved some sort of Dept. of Enegry recomendation.

Great filter!!
For a scalper like me this is a great tool to add to arsenal. If you ever figure out how to get it to dynamically in eSignal, please, please let us know. I would love to see this work on every stock I look at.

<<I FULLY EXPECT TO GET A LOT OF CRITICISM WITH THIS POST! >> Well you should. You start a topic and brag a little then insult other people by acting like your some kind of great teacher. I've seen you post in other areas talking about people not helping each other out and here you are. Good luck paper trading.
