OFFLINE CHARTING SOFTWARE
Is there any stock market graphing software I can use
without going on the ’Net and working with just the closing prices? I track only around 10 stocks, and I use simple indicators with simple moving averages:
1MA, 2MA, 3MA, 10MA
Price oscillator (12MA-26MA)/26MA
In these days of computers and Internet connectivity, most technical analysis software makes use of the Internet and most traders download their data via
the Internet. Perhaps someone reading this can suggest an alternative program. However, you can always simply a spreadsheet application such as Excel or a graphing application and input closing prices manually from the newspaper, then plot your charts, as
was done in pre-Internet days.—Editor
