Anyone new to technical analysis of security price behavior
should consider avoiding purchasing expensive charting
software when starting out. Registered users appreciate that
some of what is offered here typically costs plenty elsewhere.
Why pay for disappointment.
Try the easy to use, economical tools offered here to help
you decide yourself if this
stuff works. Preserve your capital! Don't forget that
'money attracts brains' and investors compete with against
'Rocket Scientist' types armed with automatic trading
algorithms. Be mindful that money also tempts corruption.
Most of the developed world enjoys high speed internet 24/7.
For investors there, security price history management is left
to others by using web browser applications. But those of us
living elsewhere that is not the typical case. GRAFster7, a
stand alone program, enables users to fetch and save the
needed data quickly, for free, when the electric grid and
internet are functioning, then examine charts later.
GRAFster7's ancestors are Plot v1 written in C back in 1991,
then Plot v3 written in the new VB in 1999, followed by an
upgrade to GRAFster with Borland's Delphi. GRAFster7 is being
maintained with Delphi by Embarcadero. A 'run anywhere'
version is being made using Lazarus.
Headquartered here in West Africa I don't have the benefit of
high speed internet 24/7, so GRAFster7 is just what I need
under the circumstances. What am I doing here? Well, after
completing 2-years of service with the US Peace Corps as a
lecturer at the University of The Gambia near Banjul, I
decided to remain in The Gambia to witness the end of its
criminal leader and his dysfunctional regime. That took
10-years, longer than I expected.
I've been living near the beach, enjoying 'The Smiling
Coast' of Africa - its modest cost of living, the
tropical weather, uncrowded beaches, great fishing and its
people, their cultural traditions, food and music. The only
serious threat I face here is falling coconuts. I must add it
is certainly not a 'shithole' like Orange Man claimed. And
despite the flawed world-wide vaccine distribution scheme, we
have not had much 'Rona' here.
To all of you Tom DeMark fans who, over the years, shared
your Bloomberg charts, manuals, insights and other information
to help me complete GRAFster's two pattern recognition
techniques, I'm grateful so thank you very much! Or, as they
say in the local Wolof language - jerry jeff!. Your
support has been invaluable to help me keep the code for these
techniques up to date, confirm their accuracy and decipher
unpublished details. Pax in Terra - PeteR.
