No 64-bit installations have been created for Version 5. Initially, and later with the next release, Fidelity will support 32-bit mode on 64-bit O.S.

For EOD scanning only, TC2007 (www.worden.com) is tough to beat for lightning-fast updates and scans. Although the TC2007 adapter for Version 5 isn't ready yet, we plan to support it. Scanning in TC to create WatchLists for Wealth-Lab (previous versions) made a great combination.

So that you're not surprised, some Telechart draw backs are:
1. You cannot edit the data
2. Data is precise to 2 decimals only, making historical data imprecise following splits. This isn't much of a problem for scans for "today", but it's annoying if you want to use their data for backtesting.

Thanks Cone, I'm just starting out. I want to trade CFD's with CMCMarkets/eSignal.

I was planning on using WL5 to scan EOD 20 day MA against 70 day MA long and short with a 2 ATR stop either way. 2 ATR = 1% of trading account. Pretty conservative, but I am patient. Compounding returns are my friend:-)

Cone, I have been browsing the forum and am beginning to feel that I may need to be a programmer to use WL, is that the case? Or are these guys in the stratoshere?

Wealth-Lab has a Wizard for that can do most of what you need - combinations of indicators. Implementing an ATR stop might needs some custom programming, but it's a simple matter too. When you get to that point, convert the Wizard code to a script, post it here (between Code Tags), and describe what you need.
