asked Jun 6, 2017 in AmiBroker by chris

HI,
Can you please point me to
a) Demo videos on how the setup/platform would look when working AFL scripts on IB
b) I am a day trader and it was not clear from internet and youtube search if Amibroker can be used for day trading. If so, can you point me to videos or blog posts for day trading using Amibroker
c) Can I write following scanner using AFL/Amibroker:

      Trigger alert (notification or sound) on  5 minute opening range breakout of any of the stocks that gapped up or down by 2%. I want to setup a scanner that would alert me in real time when above condition is met. Is it possible to have this setup in Amibroker

Please suggest.
