How to Use the Stock Screener in TradingView to find GAPs


How COOL would it be to create a custom scanner that could tell you every morning which stocks are gapping up, or gapping down based on your OWN settings? Maybe you like to look for trades on the NYSE gapping up more than 2% with a pre-market volume of at least 25 million? Well watch out! Tracy Ball from Real Life Trading will once again show off her expertise by walking you through step-by-step how to setup a custom stock screener for gapping stocks in TradingView!

  1. very good video, informative and well done

  2. Tracy – Great Video. I liked how I was able to follow your setup rules.

  3. Thank you. I learnt something new 🙂

  4. Is it possibile for low intraday time frame?

  5. Is this really able to predict gap up stocks for next day trading ? if so , any one can confirm ? thanks

  6. Hi Tracy, thank you for this great screener tip! Have you any suggestions for how to set up the screener for day and Swingtrading? I listen to you at the podcast where you talked about that you look for hammers and lower wick shadows for setups, and you use Finwis for this screening. Have you any suggestions for the same screening in Tradingview. I see that you can use "pattern" as a filter and then apply the hammer and lower wick shadow as an option. Maybe a short video about this? 🙂 Regards from Oslo, Norway!

  7. Very nice video. Most appreciated.

  8. Tracy thank you a lot. Your vid hasn't yet got any dislikes. Wonderfull content. Greetings from Europe.

  9. This may be a stupid question, but what do you use the post market setup for? I get the pre-market but not the post-market. You're just continuing looking for trades in the after-hours with a different setup?
    Great video btw! Thanks for this.

  10. Does the gap filter only work on US stocks? It can't seems to filter out foreign stocks. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I created the TradingView screener as you have shown. But, it shows 0 results. Does this only show results at a certain point after market?

  12. Thank you alot 🙂

  13. Thanks Tracy! But how does the alert for the screener work and what can one set it up for and what parameters will the alarm go off for?

  14. Hey Tracey! I've been watching some of your content and it has been really helpful! I have a question: What's the difference between pre-market change % VS pre-market gap %? I see you have both in your column customization. Does one of them takes the previous day's close and the other one the change after the close (from open after hours of previous day to close of pre-market of current day)? Hope that makes sense. I have a hard time understanding the key difference as they seem to give similar numbers but clearly not the same. I want to use the one that gives you the change from the previous day close.

  15. Thanks Tracy, Short, Sweet and to the Point. Very informative!

  16. You use Daily time frame in the morning or 1 minute?

  17. Informative! Maybe a tutorial or review on their screener alerts? I am not sure if those alerts are realtime.

  18. Do you ever use the Momentum (10) filter in the screener? If yes what are your thoughts on that filter, will it help to find intraday momentum stocks for day trading?

  19. Thanks, i gonna start to follow you. i alway had problem to set up this screener on trading view.

  20. Thank you Tracy! 🙂

  21. Thank you Tracy. Great video!

  22. With out screener make another video

  23. Thanks Tracy, very helpful and appreciate you taking the time to do this!

  24. Good stuff, thanks for sharing! I've never used the TV screener. Can always use one more tool for the tool belt 🙂

  25. Very helpful tutorial. Thank you. 🙂
