There is no confusion.

In 1996 I was with Waterhouse securities and several brokers before them, until it got bought out by TD American and they were just starting up TOS. That is why I had to buy several TTM_ studies from a third party then. Once I bought the add-on studies that are now for FREE I did not know are attached to my studies group. Who knew. I did make a lot of money back in the late 90's with the Scalper-Alerts and the one program scalper alert automatic that I am still looking for hoping it didn't disappear with the other fried C-drives. Like an idiot, I keep forgetting to back up the hard drives.

From what I recall, there weren't that many studies back in 96. Now today, you can go to YOUTUBE to learn how to use the various studies.

If you compare the TOS scalper Alerts with a 3-4 tick delay to Barchart, Barchart will match all and any TOS alerts. However, Barchart is spot on and we simply use the "one day delay" as Arindam calls them.

More studies are needed between the 1month and the 2month. 6month is the default for the big picture and move to the 1M or 2m charts.

It is a matter of creating several templates with the click of a mouse on the template tab to view the chart per the watchlists I review every morning.

the first of next month will be looking into the Barchart Premier.

will be zeroing on the Top Trade Alerts just looking for a 10-15% and out or 1000 shares out at 2 to 5 point rise every day per the 5 stock list.

Yesterday, I went to a refresher class on the new features of the TOS. Lots of new stuff to get acclimated to. TOS will be a backup to the Barchart for any new ideas.

Make money is boring. Boring meaning the waiting and waiting around to take the money off of the table and then compound the returns into the next stock. Simplicity is the key to the success of every trade.

Let the charts tell you what to do and don't listen to the pied pipers.

Something to ponder,
