Okay here is the deal. I got tradestation b/c I have a strategy that alerts me to stocks that are forming specific technical intraday patterns. No other scanner can do what I want so I went with tradestration. Now The online help manuals suck at EL, and they basically force u to buy the book...... SO I did. 3 weeks later it is still stuck in the mail (3 phone calls placed), and now that edition is discontinued So I go online, and there are so many damn threads, that refer to over threads, which refer u to other threads, etc.. etc. Can someone help point me in the right direction and help with my frustuation? I even be willing to pay a small fee for you to code the patterns and explain a little rather than pay $50/hr to the Tradestation guys. So until my book comes, or if it even does, I am trying to sort it out. thanks in advance.
