For the trader who has completed at least the introductory DG “Short Course”, or preferably the Drummond Geometry Professional Education course, our DG2 Professional software 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 all 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 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 professional 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!
This program will let the trader run complex, multi-layered, multi-time period set-ups that identify high potential DG structural conditions.. For example, the trader could automatically monitor the market for situations such as this: “Show me when the monthly envelope top is located in the weekly nearby resistance zone, and at the same time the daily high was greater than the top of the daily nearby resistance, and the daily high was also near the monthly envelope top.”
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.
A number of the new DG2 software packages have enhanced daily-on-intraday charting capabilities. These are included in the following: Plot, Professional, the Specialty Suite programs, and Pipes. 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.
For those Drummond Geometry traders who are accomplished programmers, we now offer support for your efforts through a specialized software API package. This software gives you great flexibility and perfect control, and is integrated with EL and other programming languages. It features a complete DG2 engine with the possibility of calling over 445 different Drummond functions in each of eight timeframes — over 3500 total calls. Timeframes range from the shortest intraday tick and time increments up to yearly levels.
Our new “TickWizard” tool is a nifty utility that can make many charting problems in TradeStation a lot easier. TickWizard will let you transfer any Easy Language value or any Drummond Geometry DG2c value from any chart (time or tick) to any other chart (time or tick). You can, for example, take a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly Drummond Geometry or Easy Language value from one chart and place it on a 2000 tick chart. Or a value from a 2000 tick chart or hourly chart and place it on a daily chart, all with full accuracy.
