Support bringing #Jammeh2Justice

The Gambia is in West Africa

Due to continuing customer demand, this site remains up and running in an effort to provide support. theGRAFster.com remains undaunted by uncompromising PayPal policies, and even a cease and desist demand. Attempted bandwidth theft takes place too. Add to these issues are fragments of the ill advised local ISP restrictions leftover from the failed regime of the exiled Gambian despot Yahya Jammeh. As they say here in The Gambia "I'm managing".

The charting software available here includes two price reversal pattern indicators that mimic Sequential and Combo trademarked by Tom DeMark. The additional free tools help you objectively appraise how effective they are, if at all, and for which symbols/tickers, if any.

Look4 is a simple software tool that scans your collection of EoD ASCII csv data and returns a list of the most recent Sequential and Combo signals. It is a real time saver.

Analyzer is another simple software tool that scans your collection of EoD ASCII csv data and returns a table showing how accurate Sequential and Combo signals are.

This free program offers an analysis of returns (% change) for two different predictive pattern indicators (Cequential and Kombo) which mimic those from DeMark. It parses ASCII csv End of Day historical price files in a compatible format and records all instances of price reversal signals. Analyzer then creates a sorted summary table for each ticker showing returns for each signal.

At the same time it creates a more useful detailed report for each symbol/ticker. It shows the % change values (% return) after the signal for each of the 10 price records following the signal. This report helps you identify the symbols/tickers having price behaviors which could be exploited with these predictive patterns. Analyzer also generates optional histogram images (as 'png' files) for each ticker showing the frequency distribution of returns.

Use this tool to get an objective appraisal of the usefulness, if any, of these patterns. Decide for yourself. With some tickers Buy pattern signals have been predictive more often than not, while some other tickers show Sell pattern signals have been predictive. Instances of both buy and sell signals being consistently predictive for any ticker are not so common.

GimmeFreeData Icon GimmeFreeData3 - retired

The spectrum of free historical market data sources is narrowing. MSN Money, AOL, OTC Markets, Bloomberg,  QuoteMedia, Google and WorldTrading are among those who have fallen by the wayside because of policy changes, greed, the 9/11 attacks or other reasons known only to them. Since 2003 GimmeFreeData has kept pace with the evolving world wide web and its free EoD security price sources. Every year a source disappears or makes it difficult for automated algorithm traders and utilities like GimmeFreeData to fetch their data. As expected, it has become a victim of its own success. So, after more than 14-years of reliable service to thousands of fans worldwide, GimmeFreeData has been retired.

But don't despair. You can register yourself for GRAFster7 and use its built-in enhanced EoD ASCII csv data download feature to fetch the data you want from a variety of free sources.
