Trader Nexus is produced by, Richard Dale, a
trader based in Perth, Western Australia. I trade stocks
on the Australian Stock Exchange, NYSE
and NASDAQ, and more recently also trade spot FOREX. I am also
a director of Norgate Investor Services, which provides
end-of-day stock, futures and forex data to traders. For
fun, I like to go flying in my Grumman
I have developed a number of tools for Metastock
that other traders may consider useful. I provide them here completely
Trailing Stop - this trailing stop is
based on the Chandelier Stop developed by Chuck
Le Beau. It is a volatility-based stop that works using ATR
multiples (although you can adapt it yourself to use other forms).
It works on both long and short trades. People who have attended
the Perth Metastock Users Group and the Perth Sunday Traders
Club may have seen me use this. I've refined it a bit and packaged
it up suitable for everybody to try it out.
Nexus Date Plugin - this filter allows you to
exclude stocks that have not traded recently. It works on calendar days. This is perfect for stocks
that have gone into long-term suspension - now you can filter them from your exploration results.
