Software Programs



Software programs are used by many people to generate buy and sell signals. After developing a trading strategy, you can back test the strategy over thousands of stocks over many years. If proven to be successful, the software can automatically generate buy and sell signals everyday based on your strategy.

I recommend Amibroker as a technical analysis program. Its got a great customer base and support system. Its easy to use, and is reasonably priced.

However, it may not suit everyone. Here is a list of the other biggest software companies out there. Most of the software listed below can accept historical stock quotes in metastock format.
