1. Color Studies. This function is used for studying the effectiveness of EDS rules by visually indicating on a chart those days when an EDS rule fires (i.e., rule criteria is satisfied). You select the EDS rule, a color, and a chart component. Then on those days when the rule fires, your selected chart component will appear in your selected color.

2. Fibonacci Studies. There are four Fibonacci Studies used to analyze chart patterns: Arcs, Fans, Retracements, and Time Zones. The general interpretation of the Fibonacci Studies involves the anticipation of a change in trend as prices near the lines created by the studies.

3. Gann Fans. W. D. Gann (1878-1955) designed several unique techniques for studying price charts. Central to Gann’s techniques is the use of geometric angles in conjunction with time and price. Gann believed that specific geometric patterns and angles had unique characteristics that could be used to predict price action. Gann’s techniques require that charts be drawn with equal time and price intervals, so that a rise/run of one price unit for each time unit (called a 1 x 1 trendline or angle) will equal a 45 degree angle anywhere on the chart. Gann believed that the ideal balance between time and price exists when prices rise or fall at a 45 degree angle relative to the time axis.

4. Regression Lines. Linear regression is a statistical procedure that is used to predict future values from past values. In the case of security prices, it is commonly used to determine quantitatively the underlying trend and to project future prices.



1. New pricing options in backtest. Can now specify a UDF for determing buy/sell prices

2. "Application" fields in backtest. You can access fields for the transaction like {position entry price} during a backtest. See BUILDER for fields.

3. Enhanced backtest summary report. Includes backtest parameters.

4. Improved syntax checking

5. New Functions:


Checks if current ticker has data for the specified number of periods. If sufficient periods with data is found, the function returns the number specified. If the number of periods with data is less than the specified number, it returns the number available.


This function will return the first data date for the current ticker

Special Operator ^

Forces a change in the date that an expression is evaluated. When a ^ occurs before an expression, that expression is evaluated using the ReportDate() rather than the RuleDate().



Ability to import CSV files into the fundamental database. This can also be usefull for importing EDS reports into a fundamental database for ranking purposes. CAUTION: Be carefull about naming fields in the import. Imported names will intefer with names that may already exist in EDS. ex: Importing a field called "Close" will cause incorrect behavior in EDS for the built-in field [close].
