COMPUTERIZED TRADING STRATEGIES
HOW TO PROGRAM FOR THE STOCK AND FUTURES MARKETS
by Ethel Goldman
This book is for the intrepid soul who wants to go beyond hand computing and program his/her own
analytical studies. He/She also must be willing to learn some BASIC because this book gives a quick
skim of BASIC, the code for downloading data from most of the major data services, and the code for
implementing a test routine for five trading strategies: single moving averages, double moving averages,
an oscillator, on-balance volume and stochastics.
The code is not just dumped on page one. Instead, Goldman leads the novice through the most-used
BASIC commands and some DOS items that are often handy. That's followed by 108 pages of
description and code for handling the peculiarities of data vendors.
