I currently have a good open source forex charting software that creates a point and figure chart. I do this with data that I collect off of the web and format with an excel spread sheet. The program then generates a chart that can be exported into excel. I do this export a couple of times a day and build an ongoing point and figure chart of the EUR/USD. I use this chart to plan trades. I have all of the source code for this point and figure program, I own the rights to the program but it is not my work (am not a programmer). I am happy to share this with a bidder so they can see what we are working with.
The next step with my programming is to get this process automated and include an email alert (maybe to more than one email). The idea is to create a program that frequently downloads market data from the web and adds information to an existing chart. The chart would have to be something that could be added to in real time. Meaning while I am looking at the file (chart) it is being updated. I think excel would be perfect because excel already does everything I need it to. I would also like the program to send me a email when a particular thing happens in the charting process. The trigger would be when a reversal occurs in the point and figure chart. This basically what I want the program to do and I am open to other ideas.
After a few bids with questions I think that the program would be best created to run within the MetaTrader 4 environment. I think this would simplify a few elements. Please consider this as the direction I would like to go with the project.
