First of all I totally agree with Zambucks first comment. Dave is very very helpful.
I have had several queries and the responses have been detailed and written in language I can understand.
Why he should think it is expensive I don't know £60 in total with no ongoing costs is, to my mind,is not expensive at all.
I find the programme easy to understand, to load and the details given have given me a great insight into share movements and what the indicators actually mean.
The manuals provided are also very good, not dry, but factual and written for people who may not understand the finer points of chart interpretation. (The only critisism I have is that they were not easy to find)
Perhaps there is a need for a 'simple' programme, not all of us are looking for complicated programmes.
Yes I have found the bar and candlestick charts and the additional indicators that go with them.
The Boards site is also of immense help to me. Dave and others have been most willing to help and give constructive views on my queries and suggestions.
All in all I am very happy with my purchase and, although I have not yet traded on the info available, I have every confidence that it will improve my performance.
It is a good package and DJB is very helpful if you have any queries...
good points are that it is a no nonsense pacake with some very reliable and commonsense approach to point & figure charting techniques for trading decisions...was value for money until lately when price was suddenly hiked up to £60- after it was featured in TASC...
bad points are that is is visual basic programme and perhaps dated coding method should be re written to either java or C++ language to make graphics more refined and generally tie in with windows command structure...
At present it is better to do point & figure charting in excel than investing in this package...my opinion..
Pfscan is a very neat and well priced (£60 one off)TA scanning/chart producing tool that can be used with several different data feeds including Sharescope, Yahoo, TC2000 and Metastock. Dave Baker the person who wrote it intially for his own trading needs, is constantly developing and changing it according to feedback from users and consequently the support is excellent.
A big plus, is that provided you can access data you can use the program on any market or instrument.
You can scan for stocks that may be about to reverse in price and the analysis part of the program will tell you how good a trade a buy/sell would make based on support and resistance levels. I tend to use this as the basis for finding my UK FTSE100 swing trading picks.
