Unlocking the Power of Stock Scanners: Your Ultimate Guide 

Stock trading can be a complex endeavor, with thousands of options vying for your attention at any given moment. So how do you sift through this vast array of opportunities to identify the ones that align with your trading strategy? Enter the stock scanner – a sophisticated tool designed to do heavy lifting for you. 

What Exactly is a Stock Scanner? 

At its core, a stock scanner is like a finely tuned filter, helping you navigate through the vast ocean of stocks based on specific criteria you set. Whether you’re searching for stocks with a particular price range, volume, or technical indicator, a stock scanner can swiftly narrow down the options, leaving you with a focused list of potential trades. 

How Does It Work? 

Imagine having a virtual assistant that tirelessly sifts through stock data, applying your chosen filters to pinpoint stocks that meet your criteria. That’s essentially how a stock scanner operates. Once the scanner has done its job, it presents you with a list of results, giving you the freedom to conduct further analysis on each stock to determine its suitability for your portfolio. 

Technical Indicators at Your Fingertips 

With ArihantPlus stock scanners, you have access to a plethora of technical parameters to finetune your search. From Simple Moving Averages (SMA) and Exponential Moving Averages (EMA) to indicators like Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Bollinger Bands, the possibilities are vast. Plus, there’s even a custom scanner option, allowing you to tailor your search based on your unique trading strategy.  


Here’s an overview of the technical indicators offered: 

  • SMA/ EMA 

Simple Moving Average (SMA) calculates the average price of a stock over a specified time period. It helps to smooth out the ups and downs in a security, giving a clearer picture of the overall trend. Exponential Moving Average (EMA) focuses more on recent prices, giving you a quicker response to current market changes compared to a regular average.  

  • MACD 

Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) helps you identify changes in the direction, strength, duration, and momentum of a trend in a stock by comparing two moving averages of its price.  

  • RSI 

Relative Strength Index (RSI) measures the speed and change of price movements. It helps assess whether a financial instrument is overbought or oversold, indicating potential reversal points in its price trend.  

  • Williams %R 

Williams %R helps you understand if a stock is likely to be too high or too low in price and if there could be a change in direction, by comparing the high-low range (especially Intraday Bracket Orders).  

  • ParabolicSAR

ParabolicSAR (Stop and Reverse) helps you determine potential reversal points in the price direction of a stock to help you decide whether to buy or sell.   

  • Bollinger Bands 

Bollinger Bands show you the expected price range of a stock so you can identify if a stock has been overbought or oversold, based on historical price volatility. 

Navigating the Terrain 

  • Access the Scanners Section: Begin by navigating to the Scanners section on ArihantPlus. You can typically find this option in the Watchlist or My Account menu of the platform. 
  • Explore Scanner Types: Once in the Scanners section, you’ll encounter various scanner types designed to cater to different trading strategies and preferences. Take some time to explore these options to find the one that aligns with your needs. 
  • Dive into Sub-Types: Within each scanner type, there are often sub-types or specific categories that allow for further customization. Delve into these sub-types to narrow down your search even further based on specific indicators or criteria. 
  • Select Indicators: After choosing a scanner type and sub-type, it’s time to select the indicators or parameters that will drive your search. Whether it’s SMA/EMA, MACD, RSI, or others, choose the indicators that best complement your trading strategy. 
  • Refine Your Search: Once you’ve selected your indicators, the scanner will generate results based on your chosen criteria. Take advantage of any additional filtering options or sorting features available to further refine your search and focus on the most relevant stocks. 
  • Review and Analyze: With your scan results in hand, it’s time to review and analyze the stocks that meet your criteria. Dive deeper into each stock’s chart, fundamentals, and any other relevant information to determine their suitability for your portfolio. 
  • Execute Your Strategy: Armed with valuable insights from the scanner, it’s time to execute your trading strategy. Whether you’re looking for potential entry points, identifying trend reversals, or seeking out new opportunities, the scanner has equipped you with the tools you need to make informed decisions. 
  • Monitor and Adjust: As you execute your trades, remember to monitor market conditions, and adjust your strategy accordingly. Stock scanners are dynamic tools that can adapt to changing market dynamics, so don’t hesitate to revisit and refine your scans as needed. 

Interpreting the Results 

So, you’ve run your scan – now what? Each scanner type serves a different purpose, from identifying potential entry points to signaling trend reversals. For example, SMA/EMA scanners provide insight into optimal entry points based on moving averages, while MACD scanners help pinpoint buy and sell signals. 

The Bottom Line 

While stock scanners are a valuable tool for streamlining your trading process, it’s essential to remember that they’re just that – tools. They don’t guarantee profits or replace the need for thorough analysis and due diligence. However, when used wisely, they can be a game-changer, helping you save time, make informed decisions, and stay ahead of the curve in today’s dynamic market landscape.
