Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to use your scans/indicators?
You must have an active subscription to Worden TC2000 software and you need a Gold Plan or higher.
Most of our products are backwards compatible with old versions of the software, but if you want to use our indicators they will require your TC2000 software version be up-to-date (Version 20+).
What do I get when I purchase a scan or indicator?
You will receive a digital download that will include information about your scan/indicator, PCF code, and video setup instructions recorded by Evan.
Your download will include everything you need to start using the indicator in your own TC2000 workstation. If you don't want to touch any code or set anything up yourself you can also hire Evan to do it all for you with our Full Service Installation add on.
You can also download one of our free scans to get a sense of how everything looks.
Can I change the timeframe of the scans?
We’ve developed our scans so that you can choose to run them on any timeframe that you would like — from intraday 1-minute all the way up to weekly charts. In order to change the timeframe of a scan you’ll want to follow the steps outlined in this article.
Just be advised, you may need to follow the mixed timeframe steps shown in that article if you are also including our “additional criteria” such as average daily volume. You would set the core scan condition to your desired timeframe, and then keep the average volume condition on the daily timeframe.
What is the difference between a scan and an alert?
Scans are what you see in our TC2000 store. They are snippets of code which return to you a list of stocks that meet the criteria of the scan. The important distinction, is that scans return a list of stocks for you to view.
Alerts are really just notifications. When an alert goes off, a sound can play on your computer and an email or text message will be sent to you. Alerts can be set up to inform you of basic things like stocks crossing certain price levels, or more complex coded conditions similar to that of a scan.
The biggest difference between the two is that an alert must be associated to a particular stock. You need to know the stocks ahead of time that you want to monitor for alerts. For more information on alerts, read our TC2000 Alerts Guide.
