Installation? It's a slam-dunk. Data access? It's a breeze. Just show the program the directory and it takes
it from there. Windows fire up? No problem. Create a new program item, not a PIF. Load and
display— fast! Even big files. Screen display (Figure 1) — crisp.
Cursor interaction? Great. Data values are always there and the active data bar is highlighted.
Compressing/zooming? Instant squish to weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly. And back. Zooming by
keyboard, not mouse, always centered on where you pointed. Great! Jumping to dates— lots of ways, all
of them fast!
Hmmm — no trendlines or typical indicators. This is different....
What's this Automode deal? A projected turning point!
Automode is the first of the conveniences you run across in Nature's Pulse from Kasanjian Research.
Using features described below,Nature's Pulse looks back about 100 bars from today to find five
significant pivot points. With those, the software calculates cycles using multipliers of 2,3,4, 1.618, 2.618
and 4.236 to come up with possible clusters that might indicate turning points in the future. In Figure 2,
for example, May 8 was selected. No direction was indicated, just the expected date of a change. Curious
about the result? Look it up.
