I'm a comlete newcomer and, before parting with hard earned cash, I would like to know whether there is any free analysis software out there which I could use whilst I'm at the beginning of my learning curve. If not, then what would people recommend?

There are quite a few free resources available but it really depends what markets/ instruments/timeframes you are after. A few more details would help :)

Like I say, I'm a total beginer and I'm just trying to get my head around technical analysis - I'm looking at FTSE100 stocks. So, I'm just after something that will let me chart, add trend lines, display MA's, etc, etc. - You know, somthing that will help me learn the basics.

AIQ ( www.aiq.com) will give you a 1 month free trial. Nowhere near long enough, but it will at least give you an idea as to what it can do. Really only worth having for EOD analysis. For intraday, it has to be sierra charts. ( www.sierrachart.com)

There are quite a few freebie facilities, but they do have some serious drawbacks IMO.

Paid-for end-of-day software such as Sharescope www.ionic.co.uk allows you to draw trendlines, and personalise your indicators. So when you are looking at the FTSE100 stocks day after day you can see how your trendlines or indicators are working out. You can also flick through your stocks automatically or by a single mouse click.

However, the freebie stuff doesn't allow you to do this, and you have to redraw every chart each time, and personalise your indicators.

The freebie ones I know of are:
www.bigcharts.com
www.advfn.co.uk

Hi,

There are a few things that you can do for free or very cheap. Sign up with ADVFN - this will give you access to real time quotes, graphs etc. Check out www.quotetracker.com - free software that allows you to take a real time feed from ADVFN.

Also, check out www.spacejock.com - great shareware charting package - will download EOD data from yahoo. Plus the support is amazing considering free (or v cheap shareware if you register)

I have a couple of free apps on my site which may be of use to you. Multiview Charting app will allow you to plot multiple stocks on a single chart. It was something I put together to help work out pairs trades. Recently started to look at Fib levels as a trading mechanism and have put up a calculator to help work out the numbers. Both apps are here http://www.datumsoftware.co.uk/tradersoftware/

No relation at all. Its a handle I have used for many years and was taken from the book 'Nemesis: The Death Star' by Rich Muller. http://muller.lbl.gov/

get a tv card from hauppage -wintv is about £40
with it you get teletext and dde links to your spreadsheet.
BBC2 update Ftse Index and FTSE350 every 15 mins with real time snapshot.
Store the data and Build your own charts.
You can then try out any indicator,trend line,ma,fib calc etc
that springs to mind.

Absolute snip and if you position trade, you wont need anything else !

Simple example
