Letters To S&C by Technical Analysis, Inc.
Can you tell me when your special issue comes out with the analyses on technical analysis software?
Our 2010 Bonus Issue, which includes the 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards for products and services voted most useful by our readers, was mailed to all current subscribers in late February. If you are not currently subscribing, you can contact our subscription department at Circ@Traders.com for a subscription or trial subscription. The issue is also available on some newsstands domestically in the US. The Bonus Issue also contains a software listing in the Traders’ Resource section. It is not a ranking or rating of software, but it is an extensive list of software used in our industry.
As for analyses of software, we publish in-depth reviews of software or websites related to technical analysis in every issue.—Editor
I was wondering if you could help with this question. Back in 1994, Telerate sold the rights to the CompuTrac software to Stratagem Software. But Telerate retained the source code to the product. Stratagem renamed the product as Smartrader. Stratagem stopped operating back in 2006. I have been able to keep my copy (Smartrader) going, but now, with computer and Windows updates, it will no longer work. Can you help find the source code so that I can update my copy? I have had great joy working with this software, and with the source code, I would be able to continue my joy.
Stratagem Software was the last software developer we knew of who was still supporting that software. We do not know of any sources for the actual source code. Perhaps someone reading this will know something or will write in with a suggestion.—Editor
I am very pleased to see the articles on the “how-to” daytrade strategies. Keep up these great articles.
