Consensus Scan Types

The Consensus group uses Broker Recommendations from third party data providers to calculate these scans.

This data is the same as that used to create the Broker Recommendation bar indicators on the Integrated Investor Start Page and the Fundamental Start Page.

The Consensus tab contains two groups of pre-computed scan types:

Click on the plus sign [+] to expand each group to view its scan types.

For each row in the scan type table, the List Name of the Scan Type together with the number of results (Count) for the day that the scan took place on (Date).

By default the date of the scan will be the current date. A previous date can be selected using the Date Selector in the Pre-computed Scan work page's Function Bar. First unselect Use Current Data, then type in or select the required date in the Search Date text box. For more information, go to the Change Date help topic.

The Scan Results displayed on the right can be filtered using the Intersection tool. To include a scan type in an intersection, select its check-box [x]. This will limit the displayed results to those which are also included for any other scan type that is also selected. For more information, go to the Filter with Intersections help topic.

Click on the minus sign [–] to collapse each group to make the selection area less cluttered.
