TeleChart is a highly acclaimed data and charting package. It comes in several different variations, each with a considerable number of additional services and resources.
NB: Also listed in the Charting Software Reviews section is TeleChart's (TC) sister product - aptly entitled 'TC-Companion'
Very Nice Charting Package but NO distribution adjusted Charts for ETFs and Stocks
The range of indicators is limited, but recent improvements include Fibs (retracements, fans and arcs), linear regression, as well as the usual range of MACD, RSI, stochastics etc.
The real power of the system comes from the sorting tools which allow you to screen for stocks that meet your own criteria, so you can screen for all Nasdaq stocks that have consolidated into a pennant, or all pharmaceuticals that show an "island bottom", or rank all Russell 2000 stocks as a a %age of their 52 week high etc. The possibilities are endless.
The inbuilt screen only allows for testing on the last day of data so you cannot run a backtest. However there is a bolt-on extra called "TC Companion" that allows backtesting along the lines of Tradestation, but at "beer" prices!
I had a few difficulties when I reformatted my HDD and the backup staff couldn't have been more helpful, getting me up and running again very quickly. As an eod package for the US market i think TC2000 would be hard to beat.
TC2000 End of Day
The program is really designed for people who write their own scans, which is generally easy to do, and it can scan based on a lot of various criteria.
As a technical analysis program, the trendline drawings are hard to do and it doesnt have any Fibonacci tools but as I say it is a scanning program and not a technical analysis product. However flicking from one chart to the next is very quick.
At £20 a month, it does a lot and I would find it hard going if I had to do without it.
