I was hoping they would be restored at some point in the future. No problem I will adjust, still a wonderful product, thanks for keeping it going.
Bruce will we be getting the Russell back soon? We had re-balancing recently and a lot of the stocks changed in the index. Is the FSTE still the major operator on the exchange and are they not pricing the Russell Indexes cheaply enough? Sorry but this is getting old and everyone else seems to be able to provide it. Maybe you could arrange an extra surcharge for those that use those indexes?
Thanks for your time and forgive me for putting what may be a difficult question to you.
If you want the stocks on the Russel 2000 in a watchlist you can get them at barchart.com. Then drop it in a watch list. I do this about every 2 months. I set it up as a shortcut in my browser and it takes about 40 seconds to do. I scan the Russel a lot so I need the stocks .
This is the shortcut:
Across the top you should see "flipcharts" and "download", I just select download and it gives me around 2000 stocks that I put in a spreadsheet then copy the symbols and simply paste them in to telechart, TC2000 and stockfinder. This is a fix, but it isn't as good as the great data we get from Worden.
If I want the index, it is available on just about any website or you can use the EFTs that others have has listed.
The beauty of the Worden software is that you can adapt, it easy, quick and it is inexpensive.
Bruce if you have the time, I would love to see how you code a Supertrend indicator,
This is an Amibroker formula for the Supertrend. Can you convert it?
BTW I really enjoy stockfinder. I have looked to see if I can find a replacement in case it breaks, well I haven't so far.
Here is the formula:
period = Param("Period", 13, 1, 240, 1);
mult = Param("Multiplier", 1.7, 1, 240, 0.1);
VS = Close;
trend = 0;
for( i = period+1; i < BarCount; i++ )
vs[i] = vs[i-1];
trend[i] = trend[i-1];
highC[i] = HighC[i-1];
lowc[i] = lowc[i-1];
if ((trend[i]>=0) && ( C[i] <VS[i] ))
HighC[i] = C[i];
lowc[i] = C[i];
if ((trend[i]<=0) && ( C[i] >VS[i] ))
HighC[i] = C[i];
lowc[i] = C[i];
if (C[i]<lowc[i]) lowc[i] = C[i];
VS[i]= lowc[i]+ (mult*f[i]);
if (C[i]>HighC[i]) HighC[i] = C[i];
Plot(VS, "Vol Stop",IIf(trend==1,10,11 ),styleThick);
mkol = IIf( Trend==1, 10, 11);
Plot(5, "ribbon", mkol, styleOwnScale|styleArea|styleNoLabel, 0, -5); // Weekly trend
shape = Buy * shapeUpArrow + Sell * shapeDownArrow;
PlotShapes( shape, IIf( Buy, colorGreen, colorRed ), 0, IIf( Buy, Low-f, High+f));
Thanks I was having to hand pick the Preferred and Warrrants, this way is much faster.
I need help in developing a specific list of stocks. The list includes only NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ stocks, excluding ETF's, unit investment trusts, closed end funds, warrant stocks, preferred securities and any non-SIC classified stock.
I have attempted to build the list from the Common Stock watchlist provided, but it has warrant stocks in it and preferred securities … trusts etc. I want to use the list for tracking NHNL.
Can you still get Stockfinder with a new Platium account or do you have to have a current stockfinder to get it? I don't see it anymore on the website.
I tend to use stockfinder more. It has indexes. Once you understand the power of building your own index it is very powerful. Nothing compares to it, tradestation or ninja trader don't hold a candle to it. It needs more work in the backtest area, but again nothing compares to it and I have experience with many platforms.
You can get alerts from most brokers now, the data points offered by TC2000 are too short for finding resistances. I always go back to the old Telechart or use stockfinder when drawing trend lines.
Don't get me wrong, both packages are good, but worden had really upped the service with stockfinder. They still support it, but have stopped development and went to the cloud concept.
The more I use stockfinder the more I appreciate it's speed in development and testing abilities. I do all my lab work in it. The real key here, is that the more I use stockfinder the more money I learn to make.
Hope this helps.
