Pre-Built Scans

The Market Scanner includes a growing number of Pre-Built Scans to demonstrate how they work and get you quickly up and running. You can easily access these scans in the Market Scanner’s left panel by searching for them by name or by narrowing them down with hash tags.

You can use these scans as-is to find trading opportunities or use them as a basis for building out your own scans. If you use them as a basis for your own scans, you will need to clone them by clicking on the make a copy link in the red box.
