I Finally Installed MetaStock 11 Charting Software – Let the Technical Analysis Begin…Again

So, I finally got around to installing the newer version (v.11) of the financial charting sofware MetaStock a few weeks ago.It is a great piece of sofware, I’ve been using it since year 2007, however back then I was doing swing trading which was much shorter term and using daily charts to find opportunities to buy and sell stocks which took days or weeks.

From 2009 onwards I have changed by trading style though. Unlike, in 2007 when I was swing trading full-time, now my timeframe has changed from days, weeks to more like months and years. I am doing less trades now and using the weekly charts instead of daily to determine market tops and bottoms. As well now instead of trading stocks, I have shifted focus to stock market indices like Toronto Stock Exchange, Nasdaq and Shanghai exchange using ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds).

I have also recently set up all my favorite indicators in MetaStock 11 like moving averages, upward momentum , sideways market indicator and downward momentum indicators. The upward, sideways and downward indicators are not part of the software, I used a formula to have the charts show this and I am currently testing to see if the timing is accurate.

As I have mentioned in my previous post/articles I have been monitoring the Nasdaq charts closely to see when a breakdown will happen and it looks like that may be coming soon. Look at the chart picture associated with this article…I maintain my short position on the Nasdaq.
