Trade Ideas Scans, Alert Windows & Layouts
Ready to discover some of the best intraday scans out there for day traders?
First thing is first… if you don’t already have access to the Trade Ideas software, get access here (you can use promo code TRADERM15 for a 15% discount). Well worth the expense considering the bang for your buck.
Trade Ideas scans take scanning/screening to the next level, but can take a little getting used to.
So many features, and so much information all coming at you at once. Setting up Trade Ideas scans, alert windows and specific layouts can help cut through the noise and show you what you want to see.
The software is a lot more than just the channels. Aside from the standard channels that feature alert windows and strategies specific to the theme, you can create, modify and customize each alert window to your liking. You can even build your own layouts. Even better, because Trade Ideas is cloud-based, you can share your own developments/settings for these same alert windows and layouts, just as I am about to do with all of you fine people. 🙂
You can incorporate each of these cloud codes into your Trade Ideas platform by selecting File –> Load from Cloud at the top.
Once you hit “load from cloud,” you’ll see the window. Copy and paste the cloud code in the bottom text box and hit load. Voila!
Once the window pops up, right click anywhere within it and hit “save to cloud.” Boom. It’s yours.
If you don’t already have Trade Ideas, I highly recommend you consider it. I have personally seen a very positive growth since making the switch to options and discovering/incorporating Trade Ideas into my trading.

Trade Ideas Cloud Codes
Once you’ve opened these windows, you can either monitor real time data, or right click and select “history” to view alerted names from earlier today, yesterday, or another date (to get an idea how each window works).
Alright… time for the cloud codes. Below are some of my favorite Trade Ideas scans, alert windows and top lists. Some I found or were shared with me, some I made, and some I just tweaked a little. I hope you find them helpful.

Time for the precious layouts. I have a few others, but these three are the most used. The customization potential is just ridiculous.
