Scanners: How to Load & Use Them in the Chat Room | WT

The Warrior Trading Scanners are designed to help members make the leap from studying to trading by helping to find finding the right stocks to trade each morning. 

About the Warrior Trading Scanners

The Warrior Trading Scanners are designed by our developers and traders here at Warrior Trading and built into our live trading room platform. Our members will now be able to pull up scanners alongside their Warrior Trading chat rooms. The scanners use real-time market data.

Our scanners are pre-configured settings that match Ross Cameron's personal settings and are designed to replace the scanners broadcast through our chat room screen share. This means that members who prefer to have a 100% customizable scanner can still benefit from a subscription to a separate third-party scanning software of their choice. However, for members in our chat rooms who use our screen share for trade ideas, this will allow them to:

  • View scanners as early as 4 AM EST
  • Continue viewing full scanner settings while our traders show charts or share a trading recap on screen share.
  • Customize audio alerts for the HOD Momo and Halt scanners
  • Sort scanners by traits such as float or volume
  • Find news using tickers that are linked directly to our quote pages 
  • Save on costs for news and scanners

How to Access the Scanners

System requirements for using the WT Scanners will match those for our chat room, which can be viewed here. In order to use the scanners, every member must sign market data agreements for the scanner platform specifically (signing them for the WT Sim will be separate). You can see how to sign scanner data agreements here.

To access the scanners after your signature has been processed, simply sign into the Warrior Trading live trading & chat room platform and click the button for scanners on the left-hand side of the platform. (For instructions on signing into the chat room, please go here.)

After clicking the Scanners button, you can then choose which scanner windows you'd like to open within your chat room dashboard.

The Scanners button on the left-hand menu should have a green dot which indicates that there is live market data going to the scanners. If this ever turns red, it would indicate there is a market data issue with the scanners and that the scanners might not be up to date. Our team will be troubleshooting during these times and so an announcement would likely be posted to the chat room.

Warrior Starter members will have access to the High of Day Momentum (HOD Momo) and Gapper scanners, while Warrior Pro members will be able to choose from the complete scanner list:

  • Small-Cap -Ross Top Gappers
  • Small-Cap - High of Day Momentum (also known as HOD Momo)
  • Reversal
  • After Hours Top Gainers
  • Continuation 
  • Top Gainers
  • Top Losers
  • Top RSI Trend
  • Top Relative Volume
  • Top Volume 5 Minutes
  • Large Cap - Top Gappers
  • Large Cap - Earnings with Gap
  • Large Cap - High of Day Momentum (also known as HOD Momo) 
  • Halt

Arranging Your Scanner Windows

Once you have chosen which scanners to add to your chat room window, you can position the scanner widgets the same way as chat widgets. See the video here for a demonstration of adding, moving, and adjusting windows and how to save your layouts after you have set your widgets to a layout you'd like to preserve.

After you have added scanner windows, you may decide you'd like to put them elsewhere on your monitor or move them to another monitor. To do so, click the icon in the upper right-hand corner to pop it out to start a new window group. Save this as a new layout to pop out later as a group. Refer to the video linked above for information on saving layouts.

Please keep in mind that you are currently limited to 3 separate browser windows at one time, with as many widgets within the main window.

Adjusting Scanners & Understanding Columns & Colors

All scanners will have the columns listed below, sorted in a particular order to help traders identify stocks according to the scanner name.

Click the links above for a definition of the terms. For more on how to read the scanners, see below and refer to the Warrior Pro classes.

The Volume Today, Float, and Gap (%) columns are colored in gradients, with the exact color determined by value, as demonstrated in the images below. The higher the Volume, for example, the darker the gradient. The bigger the float, the brighter the color. The bigger the gap percentage, the deeper the red or green, depending on the direction of the gap.

The HOD scanner also has a Strategy column. Each strategy has a different color. The list below shows the color for each strategy. For more on these strategies, please refer to Ross' Small Cap Day Trading Course in the Warrior Pro Program.

Setting Audio Alerts

Audio alerts are only available for the Halt and both Large Cap and Small Cap High of Day Momentum scanners. Click the play button below to hear what the alert sounds like, and follow the steps to turn on or off the alerts.

1. On the High of Day Momentum scanner, there is a bell icon at the top of the Strategy Name column on the right. To view audio alert choices for the scanner, click the bell.

2. A list will pop up where you can indicate which strategies to hear an audio alert for when a new stock fits that criteria. You can also select the first box to easily and quickly select all or unselect all audio alerts (see image below).

Want to set the same alerts that Ross has? He has alerts for all strategies except the Medium Float scanners.

3. After making your choices, you can click anywhere on the Strategy Name column again (or anywhere else on the screen to close the list of strategies), and you will now see that the bell is no longer crossed out. Showing that you have set an audio alert.

To adjust the volume of these alerts, use the "Alert Volume" button that appears on the left-hand menu. Keep in mind this changes the alert volume for all notifications in your chatroom. Learn more about adjusting chat room alerts on this page here.
