V. 22:6 (110-112): Product Review: TC2000/TCNet by Bruce Faber
TC2000 has come a long way, baby! Much of the basic
look of the software has remained the same since Christopher and Peter Worden started the company in 1988, but there have been many beneficial improvements, culminating in the newly released TC2000 version 5.3 and TCNet version 2.3. What began as an easy and inexpensive approach to technical analysis for the more or less novice investor has developed into a not-quite-so-simple, but still relatively inexpensive, platform for in-depth analysis.
With the slow modems of those early days, downloading open, high, low, and close (OHLC) data for about 300 stocks and indexes took several minutes. Back then, data cost half a cent per day for each stock you followed, plus there was a smaller, prorated charge for historical data. The only “news” you could get was the almost daily Worden Reports.
