What would a product, developed far away from the hustle and bustle of the financial centers, trading via
computer links, be like as a trading package? Rich Schroedel has created a unique package, completely
graphic, which runs on the graphics platform of Apple's Macintosh computers. Freestyle Trader is
designed to make the creation of indicators and their graphs completely, well, graphic. No (or little)
formulating or typing is needed.
For example, Figure 1. First, pop up a node that reads "graphic window." Then get a node that says
"graph." Finally, add a node that says "Use the S&P." Draw arrows between them to indicate they are
related and dependent on each other. Adding an average is just as simple: pop up an average node —
conveniently available from a list (Figure 2) — specify the days and hook it into the graphs and data
nodes (Figure 3). Select RUN: Figure 4.
