Moving Average Stock Scans
These scans are all based on either the 20, 50 or 200-day moving averages (DMAs). Possible price reversals may be indicated by support or resistance at a given moving average. Alternatively, price breaking through (crossing above or below) a moving average can signal a breakout or breakdown.

The Golden Cross and Death Cross are popular signals which signify the 50 and 200 DMAs crossing. Due to the lagging nature of moving averages, those crosses may be more useful as confirmation of a trend than as entry or exit signals.

The "Timeframe Trends" scan can be used to do something like this -- find stocks which are in uptrends on both a long-term (above the 200 DMA) and intermediate-term (above the 50 DMA) but in a short-term (below the 10 DMA) downtrend.
