Computerized Trading Strategies is not a book of strategies about trading, but a step-by-step guide to
programming (in BASIC) your computer to assist you in technical analysis. The author explains in a very
clear manner enough about BASIC for you to be able to receive data from vendors, store the data into
files and program trading indicators.
Ethel Goldman begins with a primer on the stock and commodities markets and then moves into a
discussion on BASIC and DOS for beginning programming. The following chapter covers how to find
mistakes and how to correct them. At this point the reader is presented with a series on the various
vendors and the style of their formats for both stocks and commodities.
