Evaluation Suggestions

Tradescapes represent an entirely new paradigm for building and assessing trading system signalers. In order to appreciate the subtleties of this new approach to signal design and analysis, we recommend the two Standard Edition tutorials.

You can access these tutorials locally from the standalone version of the Trading Sciences Platform. This item is installed to the Start menu:

TSCIWEB02

From the Tradescape Platform’s Help menu select either Tutorial 1 or Tutorial 2.

For the TradeStation version of the tutorial, use the link at the beginning of the topic.

The first tutorial will lead you through a step by step example that utilizes many of the features of the Tradescape technology with respect to longer term trading. If you will be trading intraday, you will want to look at the second tutorial.

You can also locate the tutorials online using these links:
Tutorial 1 : End of Day Trading (TradeStation)
Tutorial 2: Intraday Trading (TradeStation)
Tutorial 1 : End of Day Trading (Standalone ASCII)
Tutorial 2: Intraday Trading (Standalone ASCII)
