Samuel K. Tennis worked as a private consultant writing multi-user office and financial applications before Bill Cruz, president of Omega Research, Inc., hired him shortly after Omega's incorporation. Sam was Omega's senior programmer for about six years, actively participating in the creation of EasyLanguageTM, the development and production of SystemWriter Plus, and the development phases of Bridge-Telerate TradeStationTM. As the company expanded and the technical support burden grew, Sam advanced to senior software technician and was charged with training the staff of the product support department. During his last four years with Omega, he simultaneously coordinated both the client training and custom programming departments. This role involved both private and seminar-based field training of Omega clients. Do to this unique employment history, Sam is recognized as the world's leading authority on Bridge-Telerate TradeStationTM's EasyLanguageTM programming. Today, Sam is co-owner of VISTA Research and Trading, Inc., a Florida corporation. VISTA develops proprietary and custom programs for its clients, translating their unique, individual desires into code, principally for use on Omega products such as Bridge-Telerate TradeStationTM. VISTA's clients include some of the more important trading entities in the institutional field. VISTA publishes a comprehensive newsletter about twelve times a year that contains information on new and existing technical analysis programs, news about Omega Research, and hints and code solutions or workarounds to programming problems.

STARC BandsTM and Sibbet's Demand Index Illustrate Your Ability to Harness the Power of Programmable Software.... Manning describes the nuances of his own study, STARC BandsTM (Stoller's Average Range Channel), a popular and effective technique for helping traders determine the level of risk prior to entry. STARC BandsTM use price and volatility to construct an indicator that never needs optimization. Most traders use STARC BandsTM just as they are defined, but for those who wish to improvise, the study represents a good programming point of departure for user modifications. Sam's discussion of the code for STARC BandsTM allows anyone with even a little proficiency to do so. Manning also describes Jim Sibbet's Demand Index and its usefulness as a major system component to traders for whom open interest information is available. This interesting and often overlooked tool is one of the few studies that use volume and price. The Demand Index is difficult to calculate by hand, as it would consume eighteen columns of data for execution. Using Stoller's STARC BandsTM and Sibbet's Demand Index for illustration, Sam Tennis teaches you how to harness the vast power of TradeStationTM's testing ability, as well as the program's ability to notify you of signals you have specified. All popular software packages, EasyLanguageTM included, share certain conventions and techniques. Sam shows you how to identify and use the conventions, thus simplifying the process of learning any programming language. Sam teaches you about the most common programming problems. He shows you how to identify and correct the most common coding errors. Every computer programmer has a set of rules and guidelines for proper testing of a module or integrated system. Sam shares his view of this process and describes the manner in which he feels testing should be done. Even if you are not a TradeStationTM user, the studies Sam and Manning describe and the complete code they provide are generally applicable to any good, programmable technical software package. Finally, Sam discusses the resources (including the Internet) available to those wishing to start or expand their own testing capabilities and increase their knowledge of technical analysis. Remember, you do not have to be a programmer to understand and use the concepts presented in this workshop, and you will benefit no matter what software package you are using.
