How to Customize the ThinkOrSwim PreMarket Gap Scanner’s Parameters


Premarket Gap Scanner for ThinkOrSwim:

This video shows how to customize the volume, average volume, price ranges, and average true range / ATR parameters for my Pre-market Gap Scanner package for ThinkOrSwim.

Every trader is different, and we each focus on different types of stocks. Maybe you like playing opening drive momentum trades on low-float stocks early in the morning. Maybe you’re looking to play the first pullback on a trend day. Or maybe you’re looking for 1-2-3 patterns on 2 and 5 minute charts.

All of these plays might require different volume, average daily volume, and average true range requirements when you’re scanning for gaps in the pre-market. So this video will walk you through how to change and customize those settings in ThinkOrSwim, without having to do any coding in Thinkscript.

Scanning for Gaps in the Pre-Market with ThinkOrSwim


ThinkOrSwim’s built-in scans don’t allow you to scan for gaps in the pre-market, they only work after the open. Because of this, most traders are forced to pay huge monthly fees for premium scanners like Trade-Ideas or Pristine’s ESP scanner. So I developed these custom scans using TOS ThinkScript to help find the best stocks forming gaps in the premarket, using the free market data and scanning tools in the ThinkOrSwim platform.
