The Sector field allows you to view stocks belonging to certain Sectors or Industry groups.

Portfolio and Exchange
Under portfolio, you'll have three options to choose from.  Stocks, Optionable, and Indices.  Optionable allows you to filter stocks that also have equity options available.  Under the exchange field you can select NYSE, AMEX, NASD or all us to include all 3 exchanges. 

there are several intervals to choose from depending on your trading strategy.  the intervals include:

Weekly and Daily (long term and position traders)
Hourly (swing traders)
15 and 30 min (short term and day traders)

Min/Max price - Allows you to set price brackets (ie., minimum/maximum dollar value per share) to focus on stocks best suited to your trading needs.

Min/Avg Volume - The min volume is used to select stocks whose premarket trade volume exceeds the specified value. for example: if min volume is set to 100k, this means a stock has to trade over 100,000 shares since the market closed on the previous day to be included in the scan.

The Avg Volume is used to select stocks whose last 20 day average volume exceeds the specified value. For example: If Avg volume is set to 2000k, this means a stock has to trade over 2,000,000 shares average per day over the last 20 days to be included in the scan. Helpful for weeding out very thinly traded stocks whose movements are not supported by sufficient volume for trading.

Relative Strength
The Advanced GET scanner is capable of calculating relative strength by comparing the stock to the entire market or just the stock’s sector or industry group for strong stocks or weak ones or for those out-performing or under-performing the Dow jones or Nasdaq indices. you can then rank stocks based on the results of the relative strength scan.

Range Selection
The user can choose the minimum and maximum price range of the stock based on the last three days. This is very important to day and options traders. For day traders, stocks with a larger daily range provide the potential for tradable swings during the day. Some options strategies look for stocks to expire within a small range while others require larger ranges. Range selection accommodates the various options strategies.
