Dave., Don't touch it with a barge pole in my opinion having bought it and sent it back again its not worth the price of the packaging. Its a moving average system that claims to use intermarket analysis to predict the next days high, low and direction I could guess better most of the time by working out the averages of the high and low myself. It simply doesn't work sounds good in theory but nobody can guess the future certainly not software. Its a ridiculous price, save your money and go on a good course instead if necessary I think you mean CFTR I have done that too another complete waste of money. Learn technical analysis, keep your losses small and practice the only person who can teach you to trade is yourself because we are all different and have different circumstances, eg time, capital and committment.
As far as books are concerned, there are many choices (see t2w/Global Investor bookshop) but those most usually recommended are "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by John Murphy" and "Technical Analysis of Stock Trends by Edwards & McGee". I`ve not personally read these books, having found out about TA via a much more circuituous and expensive route, but I`ve heard many people recommend them.
I found the two books by Van Tharp "Trade your Way to Financial Freedom" and "Financial Freedom through Electronic Day Trading" to be very good on the essential matter of money management and (in the latter book) an introduction to Level 2 trading.
