ASCTrend is proprietary trading software designed to
give trading signals on just
about any series of prices
you can feed it. The real
value in ASCTrend is that it has gone
through all the development headaches
of the past five years and is now a stable
trading guide you can use on intraday
data or daily/weekly/monthly data.
I tested the newest version, eASCTrend,
which has the capability of hooking
onto eSignalís Internet datafeed. You
can get all the historical data you want
through the datafeed, allowing you to
visually review ASCTrendís signals and
