Price: $295. Demo disk: $5
Candlestick charts are the latest rage but may be showing signs of hanging on longer than, say, bubble
theory or chaos. When engineers and programmers not given to falling for the latest fad jump into
making their programs not only plot the candles but call out the patterns for you, I suspect there's more
going on than normal marketing activity.
For years, N2 has churned out a vast library of programs that has covered much ground, almost as far as
technical analysis goes. They hit stocks, futures and entire markets. They employ fundamental data as
well as technical. They created Access Plot and Export (APEX), a neat little graphing package that we at
STOCKS AND COMMODITIES send out to new subscribers. Throughout all this, Norm North and Greg Morris
have not been enthusiasts but reliable explicators of techniques developed elsewhere.
