TNT (Track 'n Trade) is used as a complete trading program with daily data downloads of 110 commodity choices and also as an eye-opening trade simulator with 25 years of back data for testing. Combined and open outcry data is included and also electronic mini's.
I bought this program myself several years ago, and it runs easily on my ten year old 350 Mhz Dell computer with dial-up internet service. (I do have high speed cable now, but save the old box for testing programs). When the program is first fired up, the back data will take about an hour and a half to download on dial-up, after that the daily data takes just a few minutes. Once the daily data is downloaded, the internet connection is no longer needed for your analysis. So you don't need a dual Pentium desktop monster with 4 screens to run Track 'n Trade Pro.
All features of the program are customizable to your own preferences, from screen background colours to the appearance of drawing tools and indicators. The tools are displayed in layers, so can be moved in front or behind each other. Trend drawing tools can be moved, lengthened, and combined. Many automatic and adjustable tools include basic lines, text, circles, 1-2-3 display, channels, triangles, fans, head and shoulders, zig-zag, and more. Built-in patterns include Elliot Wave, dart/blip, Andrews Pitchfork, Fibonacci retracements, arcs and time zones, Gann fans...
All standard indicators are present: MACD, Stochastics, Momentum, CCI, %R, ADX, Pivot Points, Bollinger Bands and more. All are fully customizable as well.
TNT is the greatest educational tool I know of for paper trading, testing your strategies offline. The daily, weekly and monthly commodity charts are easily scalable and can be stepped forward and backward manually or automatically to watch your trade play out profit by profit.
