Product Review: NexTrend by Dennis D. Peterson
NexTrend is what you might call one-stop shopping. It has a bit of everything for traders — streaming quotes (delayed), charting with drawing tools, indicators, news sources, sample trading results, alerts and screening, and more. With so many features, navigation could be an issue, but NexTrend has a straightforward solution.
The main screen shows a short menu across the top and a column of icons on the left. A click on any of those icons will open up a new page, which is any set of screens you might want displayed. This means you could have a page with monthly and daily charts with news, and on a second page you could have fundamentals with some other data.
You create new pages by clicking on the page icon (Figure 1) and select the page you want by clicking on the tab on the bottom. You can save your pages, and once you have all of your pages loaded, you click on the tab for the one you want. “Setup” on the menu line has an automatic restore option to add whatever you want to appear when NexTrend begins execution. There are sample pages you might want to go through before setting up your own for useful ideas embedded in them.
