QUICKSCAN: VantagePoint 8.6 by Sunny Harris
I love to try out new software, especially trading software. I like to open the box and start pushing all the buttons to see what happens. If the software designers are really good, the program will be intuitive and not even need documentation (aside from help files, which I use in an emergency). The new version of VantagePoint qualifies. It’s easy, pretty, and it works.
In Figure 1 you see the opening screen of the software. It displays the symbol for the emini S&P. I got there easily by navigating through the menu on the left of the screen. Under “Futures,” I went straight to the emini. I double-clicked the symbol, and the chart popped right up.
In a huge departure from other technical analysis software, VantagePoint plots tomorrow’s prices! Look to the hard right edge of the chart in Figure 1. There is a bar that is not colored and for which there is no candle body. That is the prediction for tomorrow. Because this software is unique in its focus, I am going to continue this review tomorrow, at the end of the day, when I can see what actually happened. Then I will copy that chart for you and compare what happened to what was predicted.
