A course that teaches you how to build an automated stock trading system in Microsoft Excel!

This Course shows you step-by-step how to build a sophisticated automated stock trading model using Microsoft Excel. Microsoft's Visual Basic (VBA) language is used in conjunction with Excel's user interface, formulas, and calculation capabilities to deliver a powerful and flexible trading tool.

The Model includes five proven technical indicators (ADX, moving average crossovers, stochastics, Bollinger bands, and DMI). You are guided in a detailed fashion through creating worksheets, files, ranges, indicator formulas, control buttons, DDE/Active-X links, and code modules. The model incorporates both trend-trading and swing-trading features. The swing-trading feature can be turned on or off, depending upon your investing style. After building the model, you simply import the data you need, run the model automatically with a click of a button, and make your trading decisions.


The system operates with your choice of FREE .CSV or ASCII .TXT files available on the internet (from Yahoo!Finance or other provider), or your subscription data service (with our without a DDE link). The model can be used alone or in conjunction with your existing fundamental and market analysis to improve investment timing and avoid unprofitable situations.

A separate pre-built Backtesting Model is also included for historical analysis and testing various stocks and time periods.
