Professional Trading Software
What is the right DG2 Software for me?
For Intermediate and Advanced Traders
These three software packages are suitable for the vast majority of Drummond Geometry traders. These are add-on tools for TradeStation charting software (compatible with TS 8.1 through TS 9.1) The packages below will accommodate almost any style of trading, from short-term intraday scalping to swing trading, or long-term investing. The DG2 software listed here assume at least a working knowledge of Drummond Geometry theory and methods.
For the experienced trader who has worked past his or her introduction to Drummond methods, the “Pro” package is the standard preferred package. It comes with the full range of classic DG lines, including the “nearby’s” and the “furtherout’s”, the 5/2 extension, the 5/9 extension, a dot-refresh indicator, the main channel line, the 6/6’s, 6/7’s, the types of trading indicators including trend, congestion entrance, congestion confines, and congestion exit indicators, and the Flow indicator. Walk-forward testing is available as well.
The “Specialty Suite” contains many of the latest DG2 software developments. If you have been watching Charlie Drummond as he pokes and prods P&L methodology in the daily “Mogs” and tweaks Drummond Geometry to extract a few more percentage points, then you already know what we’re talking about. If not, check it out in the “Mog” archives. The DG2 Specialty Suite includes six indicators, now including the long-term Yearly and Quarterly “Multi” indicators with full-overlay capabilities.
DG2 “Pipes” or “Eotem” is a completely new trading tool that gives the DG trader an “instant assessment” of market condition and direction. Developed by Charles Drummond in the Summer and Fall of 2008, this is the latest DG2 innovation and promises high returns to the DG trader. Elements include: Red Bands, Cyan Pipes, Oncoming Predicted Pipes and their reference marks, Zones 1 and 6, and the familiar Drummond Geometry Envelope.
This is a fully-featured and fully-flexible package for the serious technical trader. It gives the trader full control over the 235 DG lines in the dll database, from all timeframes. In addition to the existing DG lines, there are many new DG concepts now available for the first time: R-vals, RSP, WIE, WT, flow, trend, dot-push, dot-opening, 5/9 zones components, blues components, refresh band components, zone 1-6 components, volume, open interest, Mother Goose components, etc. Plot also includes also a separate program “Plot DI” that permits the fully accurate plotting of daily-on-intraday DG lines.
Drummond Geometry may be the world’s strongest trading methodology. But monitoring the trade is critical and can be time-consuming. Now this monitoring is made vastly easier by employing our new DG2c_Zone_Alterts software. Simply set your DG line or Zone in the inputs, set TradeStation’s built-in alert defaults, and you can let the computer tell you what is occurring, via audio alert, via visual alert, or via email or mobile phone text messaging!
All of the DG2 software packages have the ability to display walk-forward trading set ups. We believe this powerful new feature will become one of the most valuable aspects of the software. It is a uniquely powerful way to visualize the market, to train the mind, to test trading propositions, and to gain skill and confidence as a trader.
The new DG2 software packages have enhanced daily-on-intraday charting capabilities. These are included in all of the following: Professional, the Specialty Suite programs, Pipes, Plot, and the advanced API coding softwares. Because the principles and techniques involved in setting up this new day-on-intraday charting accuracy are the same from package to package we have collected this set of information in a single place.
