Advanced GET is a suite of trading strategies that extends the eSignal platform with additional features designed to provide greater insights into the market.
When Advanced GET was originally designed some years ago, it was exclusively about Elliott waves and Gann technique (that’s where the name “GET” came from), but eSignal’s implementation goes beyond that.
There are four different ways you can set up trades using the Advanced GET toolset: Elliott type 1 (a trend-continuation strategy), Elliott type 2 (a countertrend strategy), false bar stochastic (a sophisticated trend strategy), and eXpert trend locator, or XTL (a trade-with-the-trend strategy).
