How good is its programming language? Does anyone use it? How comparable is language to the one in TradeStation or Metastock? How well does it compare with Metastock overall?

What about P&F charts? Could anyone check to see if they are offered?



No P&F's; line, candle, and OHLC only. The programming on scans is very basic, nothing like MS or TS, but it works great if your needs are not complex. Given only one program I would choose TC hands down (got a bunch of others that never get used any more). If you are a programming nut it may frustrate you, though.

Order the program, it's free to try. Just leave the yellow payment box empty to get the program. It's fully functional, it just won't update with the latest prices if you don't have an account. If you don't like it do nothing, if you do like it call up and fund the account. Pretty simple. This way you can play with the scans to see what you think. TC will export to MS data format, by the way.

Here is what it takes to do something more complicated like a 5-day ATR:

Don't bother with the real-time version as it is going to be scrapped in the near future. The TC2000.Net will replace it and it looks great. Integrated web research, sharing of charts and notes, and other goodies.
