The exciting thing about TechniFilter Plus (TF+) is its advanced formulary and so we'll focus this
whole review on that feature. Although other formula-generating analytical systems are being marketed
(RTR wrote some of them), this is the package that carries the idea to the current limit in PC-based
programs. Traders tired of using canned indicators should read on. Introductory level analysts can skip
the whole thing.
Using TF+, any trading idea developed from drawing on charts probably can be expressed by a function
or by creating a formula. That includes trendline breaks; highs and lows (or the second—not third—high
back); filtered waves (a la Merrill), point and figure reversals; retracements and swings. Many standard
indicators (averages, stochastics, OBV, RSI, regressions, momentum) are already programmed in TF+.
Just call them up and run them.
