The spreadsheet is on its way to becoming the paradigm format for information display and
manipulation. It is at least from my viewpoint — I use one for accounting, one for scheduling, one for
contacts management, one for project management, one for job assignments — you get the idea.
I've written before about the relative ease, for techies anyway, of using spread-sheets instead of hard
coding unique indicators, and more programs are making this facility available. In fact, WAV E WI$E is
built around a spreadsheet (Figure 1). Lest the numerically disgusted among us be turned off by this, let
me immediately point out that this is a much-simplified specimen of the spreadsheet species. Many
capabilities of today's how to get the menu to function. Though super powered spread-sheets are not
available in WAVE WI$E, the result being a tool that most traders will like.
