Stocks & Commodities V. 22:11 (94-96): Product Review: NeoTicker 3.0 by Dennis D. Peterson

scanner that can use multiple indicators or an actual price pattern, the ability to chart multiple time frames on a single chart, and a quote window that includes a line chart for each symbol.
NeoTicker is the integration of several software packages, and it has been carefully developed to serve the needs of NeoTicker’s primary users: daytraders.
