Worden Discussion Forum
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.
In summary the refresh option does not redraw the screens that do not show price painting. It does redraw those that do show prices. (Those would be only new ones... or not saved since the refresh.)
Ok brief history ... after the recent revision 28.
Couldn't get layout to paint prices, prices seemed to be there as the filter would work and I could see the results when I was using a price filter. After saving any layout or chart, when it is reopened it did not paint the prices. But for a couple of reloads I can still add a chart or start a new layout and see the painted prices on the new stuff. Filter still works.
After about 2 restarts of stockfinder I seem to lose contact with the prices. If I run a filter with a price I get a crash notice, backscanner processes in seconds and has zeros in the data. Once my program gets to that point the prices simply don't paint no matter what I do. (BTW have reloaded a lot of old layouts.... none of them if saved now paint prices.)
If I uninstall the program, uninstalling just the stockfinder with the option to reinstall later does not allow the program to repaint, it simply stays the same. (no change from not uninstalling it)
If I uninstall the program, uninstalling all the data .... well it works exactly as I described in the first paragraph. (2 times then no prices no matter what I do.)
Thanks for working on Sunday. Really hope no one else is having this problem.
BTW running Windows 7 home premium, my notebook is Acer, Aspire 7736, has a Pentium dual T4400 with 3 GB and it has a 64 bit OS. I do have the Mobile Intel 4 Series on the display and a 17 inch monitor. Not really having any problems with this chipset... I also reinstalled VB net version 4... just in case it was some library call that got hosed.
Let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.
