Top Setups (Score Output)

The EdgeFinder's Top Setups page allows traders to quickly see the best setups based on sentiment, technical, and economic data!
HOW DOES THE TOP SETUPS PAGE WORK?
The Top Setups algorithm uses a combination of economic data, technical readings, and sentiment readings to produce a bias for each symbol that it tracks.

The EdgeFinder calculates score for each individual metric, then determines a final score by combining all individual metric scores. This final score is then considered when generating a 'bias' for each symbol.
HOW CAN TRADERS USE THIS?
With the help of the Top Setups page, traders can see the EdgeFinder's current bullish/bearish/neutral readings. Traders can then consider these readings when looking for trading opportunities.

Note: the top setups generated by the EdgeFinder are not timeframe specific, but rather a collective directional bias derived from all considered data.
Filter based on assets, categories, or bias!

How is Total Score Calculated on the EdgeFinder?

Total score calculation

The Top Setups page showcases the total calculated scores of all metrics considered by the EdgeFinder, for each symbol that it tracks. The "Score" tab is the finalized sum of all columns/scored metrics.

The EdgeFinder's bias on a symbol is "Bullish" if the total score is greater or equal to +5, and "Very Bullish" if the total score is greater or equal to +9.

The EdgeFinder's bias on a symbol is "Bearish" if the total score is less than or equal to -5, and "Very Bearish" if the total score is less than or equal to -9.
