Yeah, I bought it, placed my order the moment I saw the offer. Didn't even have to think about it, just did it. Why?....I think TRO is very sharp, honorable, trustworthy and most of all, I just like his style. I consider it my contribution to him for all I have learned from him and if it turns out to be something less than what was touted in the ad. Then so be it, not the first or last time I will have wasted 5 Franklins. The ad mentions simplicity, now thats what I like (KISS).

I use TS and have down loaded many of his indicators, do I use them, not really. Sure I glance at them, but when it comes to pulling the trigger, I use Price, Trend Lines (support & resistance) and a "Smoothed Version" of RSI, I day trade only one stock, that's my only "Cow". Gives me milk about 3 days a week. OMG, where did I get those phrases from. :)

So with all that said I am looking forward to TRO's product release, if I just get the "Holy" heh, that's good enough for me. lol to all of you...Ed

TRO.....are you banished only on the forums and still use their platforms or are you "all out"?? Just curious if you can continue with your indicators.

This article was in my paper today and thought I needed to share with you.
He is a 15 year old and may have found "The Holy Grail"???. This all started out as a class project and he has created an "algorithm" that made him a winner in the Calf. Stock Market Simulation Contest. Plus he is going abroad to present his project.

You can find the article at
His web site is
I hope you enjoy this story about this young man's accomplishment.

Hey Riggs, maybe you should really consider perhaps giving up your "crown" to the kid. You know he is coming to the age where he might want to drop the
"wizkid" part of his handle and truly become the new WALLSTREETGENIUS!!!

Over Drive........ I tried your suggested date range, but I can only do 4 months. So you must have "SF Advanced". Tom from SF has helped me out a few times and I am sure he can get you going.

Overdrive...... I just did a backtest and it worked. Keep clicking the Refresh on SF and not the one on Windows . Did you "SAVE" and then hit "START"?

Keep clicking on the "Refresh" not once or twice, many many times.
Some filters come back sooner than others, depending on their complexity.

I am a former & Optionsxpress user, I do mostly options. I looked at a lot of other choices and decided TS was my best choice. I signed up this past Dec. and took advantage of their 1 month free deal. However, I had to cough up a minimum of $5000 and go thru all the paper work to open up an account. The 5K is mine to trade with & they make monthly withdrawl of $99.00 for the service. There is no software charge and if you place enough trades, the $99.00 is waived.

I placed my first few trades just last week. It took me 3 months of self education to get the program set up to my style and be very comfortable with navigating my way thru it. TS has 2 day seminars which I will attend. TS has 1 hour archived on line seminars which I watched many times over. I spent a lot of time and still do on their forums. There are many components of TS which I haven't touch yet. My next objective is to study and learn TRO's Slot Machine.

Make sure you have a computer with a lot a horsepower and a decent monitor(s)which leads me to what I just bought today. For all you single monitor folks, check out the new Gateway 21" LCD Widescreen. Turn the monitor 90 degrees and it goes from landscape to portrait automatically. One can really stack a lot of lower studies on it and still have a normal bar chart.

So there you have from a newbie at TS. I am very please with the software and the staff has been very helpful... and orders are filled in about 1/2 nano second.

Let me re-phrase my question... what do the symbols stand for?
Its like telling time I don't need to know how a watch works to see what time it is.
I did find out about Bear & Bull Power at Trade Station Easy Language.
Thanks Yepher & Niko for your replies.
