<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I heard about the Technifilter program from Frank 
Gaylord, and bought the Dos version. I liked it so much, I also bought the new 
version, and it compliments Metastock perfectly.....they both use the same file 
format (Metastock) and since I use the Chartcraft version of Point and Figure 
charting, I find the configurability of the point and figure searches to be 
unique. As far as I know, there is no other software commercially available that 
will do what Technifilter 8.1 does. It's also nice to be able to create lists in 
text format and automate all your searches together. As for speed, I think the 
Windows format slows TF8.x down a little from the Dos version. (but since it's 
automated, you just leave it alone and come back to it, when it's

    not yet have the newer Windows version) over The Explorer in MetaStock 6.5 
    because it is so efficient in calculating single or multiple, nested or not

    versions of TechniFilter from the early days, when EQUIS International sold 
    it, before some of what TechniFilter did was incorporated in MetaStock as 
    The Explorer.&nbsp; It seems to me that The Explorer has lagged behind 
    TechniFilter in power and ease of use.<BR><BR>I see no reason that EQUIS 
    International cannot build The Explorer into a filtering entity that rivals 
    TechniFilter Plus if MetaStock users and other Technical Analysis folks tell 
    them that we what List-building capabilities, nesting capabilities, 
    Trendline generation and automation to name a few, all in a module that 
    calculates about twice as fast as it does now (it takes The Explorer just 
    under twice as long as TechniFilter Plus 7.1 to calculate basically the same 
    filter; also remember that TechniFilter Plus 7.1 is DOS, which, I assume, is 
    inherently faster than the Windows 95 and NT MetaStock 6.5 The Explorer, so 
    this comparison may not be apple and apples, but rather apples and 
    oranges).<BR><BR>Please understand I believe that MetaStock 6.5's The

    to see it do so more efficiently. <BR><BR>

All of the discussion about Technifilter has whetted my interest, but I
can't find a site for them.  Can someone point me in the right
direction, either on or off the web?
