Create, customize, edit and view Mosaic Market Scanners from within the Mosaic layout. You can create a new custom scanner, or choose a Predefined Mosaic Market Scanner.
To create a Mosaic Market Scanner
1. From within Mosaic, click the "add new window" icon in the Monitor window and select Mosaic Market Scanner.
2. Select Create new custom scan... and enter a title for the scan.
3. Define the scan "Universe" including the product(s), region(s), exchange(s), instrument type(s), indicies, and optional industry filters. You can see the market scanner results in the scanner pane as you define the universe.
4. Use the Fields section to add, remove, and manage each displayed value. Use Dual Sort on one field to show the scanner sorted in both directions on the selected field. To change the order in which fields are displayed in the scan, drag and drop fields into the desired order.
Each field provides a "Display" and "Sort" selection. Use these selectors to customize and organize scan data.
The Display selections let you specify how and if you want the values in the field displayed. Use the "Bar" and "Gradient" graphical indicators to provide at-a-glance information on the on the tickers in your market scan. Choose from the following:
Values - This selection will show the expected numerical value appropriate for the field. This is the default display.
Gradient - The Gradient uses a filled, colored circle with different shades to provide information on the field value. Red shades identify a downward move and green shows upward movement. Hold your mouse over a gradient to see the color-shading key.
Bar - The Bar chart displays the field value graphically using a colored bar to indicate the direction and degree of change. Red indicates negative and green indicates positive. The length of the bar indicates the degree of change (the value). Bars that have values outside the hand-picked range will display a very bright section at the end of the bar to signify values outside the range.
Line The Line chart displays the field value graphically using a colored line. You can elect to view up to three fields that use the Line chart view. Mouse over the "Lines ?" display in the scanner to see the key to the Line colors.
Values + Gradient - Displays two fields for a single value; one with the numerical value and one with the gradient.
Values + Bar - Displays two fields for a single value; one with the numerical value and one with the bar chart.
Values + Line - Displays two fields for a single value; one with the numerical value and one with the line chart.
None - The value for the field will not display. You can use the combination of a "none" value with a sort specification for a field to have the scanner search on and sort by a field without showing the field value, for example, Market Cap. If you set the sort to descending, the scan will return tickers with the highest market cap but will not show you the actual market cap.
