Runners & Laggers (scanner)

Firstly, seems to me this may only work with crypto but I know nothing about the other sectors so i could be wrong. I was trying to think up a good way to find moving coins(other than by volume bc theres holes in the results when using it this way). Thought this was an interesting concept so decided to publish it as I've seen no others like it (though i did not extensively search for it. We need to start with a little Tradingview(TV) common knowledge. When there is no update of trades/volume in a candle TV does not print the candle. So when looking at (let's say) a 1 second chart, if the coin being observed by the user has no update from a trade in the time of that 1 sec candle it is skipped over. This means that a coin with a ton of volume might fill an entire 60 seconds with 60 candles and conversely with a low volume coin there could be as little as 0 1-second candles. BUT even for normally low volume coins, when a pump is beginning with the coin it could literally go from 0 1-second candles within a minute to 60 1-second candles within the next minute. ***NOTE: This DOES NOT show ANY information if the coin is going up or down but rather that a LOT more trading volume is occurring than normal.*** What this script does is scans (via feature) up to 40 coins at a time and counts how many candles are printed within a user set timespan calculated in minute. 1 candle print per incremented timeframe that the chart is on. ie. if the chart is a 1 min chart it counts how many 1 min candles are printed. So, (as is in the captured image for the script) if you wanted to count how many 5 second candles are printed for each coin in 1 min then you would have to put the charts timeframe on 5sec and the setting titled 'Window of TIME(in minutes) to count bars' as 1.0 (which bc it's in minutes 1.0m = 60sec and bc 60s / 5s = 12 there would be 12 possible values that each coin can be at depending on how many bars are counted within that 1min/60sec. *** I will update to show an image of what I'm talking about here. Now, the exchange I'm scanning here is Kucoin's Margin Coins. There are 170 something coins total but I removed a few i didn't care for to make it a round 40 coins per set (there being 4 sets of 40 coins total=160 coins being scanned). To scan all 4 sets the indicator must be added 4 times to the chart and a different 'set' selected for each iteration of the script on the chart. Free users can only scan 3 at the most. All others can scan all 4 sets. In the script you can change the exchange and coins as necessary. If there done so and there are not 40 coins total just put '' '' in the extra coins spots that are not filled and the script will skip over these blankly filled spots. The suffix (traded pair) for the tickerID on all Kucoin's Margin Coin's is USDT so that's what i have inputted in the main function on line 46 (will need to be changed if that differs from the coins you want to scan. Next in the line of settings is 'Window of TIME(in minutes) to count bars' which has already been discussed. Following that is the setting "Table Shows" which the results are all in a table and the table will present the coins that have either "Passed" or "Failed" depending on which you choose. The next setting determines what passes or fails. If there are 12 possible rows for the coins to be in (as described above) then this setting is the "Pass/Fail Cutoff" level. So if you want to show all the coins that are in rows 11 and 12 (as in the image at top) then 11 should be selected here. At this point you will see all the coins that have a lot of volume in them. Finding coin names in the table that are usually not with a ton of volume will present your present movers. NOTE: coins like BTC and ETH will almost always be in these levels so it does not indicate anything different from the norm of these coins. Last setting is the ability to show the table on the main window or not. Hope you enjoy and find use in it. BTW this screener format is the same as the others I have published. If you like, check those out too. If you find difficulty using then refer to those as well as they have additional info in them on how to use the scanner and its format. Lastly, in the script is the ability to print the plots and labels but I commented them out bc its really just a jumbled mess. In the commented out sections there is a Random Color Function (provided by @hewhomustnotbenamed which was developed on the basis of Function-HSL-color by @RicardoSantos. All right, peace brothers....and sisters.

**** Also, I see how the "levels" could be confusing so I will put them into a % format soon (probably not today) so that the "Pass/Fail Cutoff" can be in % format so that if "passed" is chosen and 50% is chosen (in the new setting that will be changed) then it'll show you all the coins that have more than 50% of the bars printed within the time window chosen. Goodluck in all your trading adventures. ChasinAlts out.
