Product Review: Channalyze by D. W. Davies
QUDOS MARKET INSIGHT
Brian J. Millard, the developer of Channalyze, claims that after many years of research into cycles and channels, he has produced the worldís first cycle scanning program.
Iím always skeptical of self-promotion. So, did Channalyze fulfill Millardís primary claim and the other promises
made? Letís find out.
Millard is a longtime disciple of J.M. Hurst, the doyen of cyclical analysis of stocks. Since at least 1991, Millard has been working on a process to accurately define present and future price and time cycles of stocks.
The focus of the program is twofold. First, thereís the cycle analysis of market data, and isolating which cycles are currently going through a stable phase. The second is the channel analysis as described by Hurst, and later, Millard.
The software features automatic or manual manipulation of channels. Included is the proprietary Sigma-p, which gives improved prediction of future channel movement. Traders who are unfamiliar working in this area of relating price channels and time cycles will quickly become comfortable after a few sessions with the software.
The Channalyze program operates on end-of-day data in MetaStock format, but it can also read data held as .csv
