Open High/Low Predictors
These scanners monitor large-cap stocks at the market open, noting their opening price. After the first 5-minute candle has formed, if the stock’s opening price was at the high for the first 5-minute candle, it is predicted to be a downtrend. If the opening price was at the low for the opening 5-minute candle, it is predicted to be in an uptrend.

We scan across all large-cap stocks every morning.
