What is the code to use for a simple gap down screener? All I want to do is screen at the end of the day a specific list of stocks which have gaped down. I was using a couple of charting software packages but I had to type in a few hundred symbols to use it.

Refer to the documentation here for this:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudyChartAlertsAndScanning.php

Here is the information for scanning:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudyChartAlertsAndScanning.php#ScanningForAlertConditionAcrossMultipleSymbols

You will want to use a Historical Daily chart and write a formula to determine this condition.

And here is the documentation to enter the Alert Formula on the main price graph:
