Qtstalker

Qtstalker

Qtstalker is a user friendly Technical Analysis package. It is similar to commercial software such as Metastock, Supercharts and Tradestation.

Data can be imported from online sources (such as Yahoo!) or from CSV (comma-separated values) files.

The software is lean, has a simple design for speed, portability, and low resource usage. Qtstalker can be easily extended, as it uses a plugin model.
