V. 22:6 (106-109): Product Review: StockShareV2 by David Penn
At some point, if you’re looking to create a new technical analysis charting program, you’ll need to make a decision. Will this new program attempt to be
the Mother of All Technical Analysis Charting Programs, stuffed like a sausage with virtually every technical indicator, oscillator, study, analysis/drawing/projection tool/line/ray/segment, fan, and grid known to modern humanity? Or will this new program try something
that is in some ways even more difficult: a modest, yet fully equipped charting program that is exceptionally easy on the eyes, even easier to use, and with just enough of the right features to make a trader or investor forget about those dreams of endless pulldown menus
of indicator preferences?
By all evidence, StockShare Publishing, creators of StockShareV2, have opted for the latter strategy. While it is true that, at this time in technical analysis history, StockShareV2 does not have every indicator mentioned in Steven Achelis’ classic Technical Analysis From
A To Z (not that anyone would ever use, or want to use, every indicator in the alphabet …), StockShareV2 does have all of the basic indicators and studies — as well as a few unique surprises — that anyone would ever want in a basic technical analysis charting package.
