We have had a good response to the Forecasting Made Easy version that now reads Metastock data. The Master Time Factor chart type in this program has been gaining steady interest. In May we will be releasing the FME version that can read ASCII text files. One unexpected thing that has happened since the release of the Master Time Factor technique, is that traders have been asking for our forecasts for specific markets. Rather than learning the Master Time Factor forecasting method and making their own forecasts, they would like to see our forecasts. Normally we make Master Time Factor forecast as tutorials for the FME software users to read and follow the described steps to learn how to make their own forecasts. There are a huge number of markets we can choose from to make a Master Time Factor tutorial. It would help us if you can vote in the poll below are let us know your area of interest. Feel free to add items in the “Other” box including international items as we have access to just about every symbol here at Mikula Forecasting.
Our data survey poll has closed with results that were a little surprising. The top three items account for 91% of the poll results. The poll was asking what off-line data type traders use. The top vote getting was the Metastock format data. The second highest vote getter was ASCII text files. The third highest vote getter was write in votes for eSignal which was not in the survey because this was for off-line data types. It is apparent from the survey and also by my conversations with traders that the most widely used data formats are Metastock and text files. Most data services have moved to an OLE link which does not allow you to access the files directly on your hard drive. The trend now is to move to server based or cloud based data where the data is never on the trader’s hard drive. The newest versions of Worden Brothers programs are all server based data delivery systems along with all the realtime data services. In the near future we will be posting a poll asking what companies are your favorite off-line data services. If you have a clear favorite please send us an email with the name and we will include those services in the poll.
