THE DESIGNER TOOL
HGSI’s database is group centric, that is, every security belongs to a group, even the All Securities folder is a group. The database comes with a variety of ready made groups. In the Designer, the user can create an unlimited number of their own User Groups. All HGSI groups contain a group index determined by the user e.g. equal dollar weighted, average price, market value, price weighted, etc. When securities within a group are ranked some will fall above and below their index providing insight to the general direction of the group. Many securities above the index implies a strong upward bias to the group. Group indexes can also become a group of indexes. These index groups can also be ranked giving important insight to the stronger and weaker groups.
THE CHARTING TOOL
Charting is view based meaning that you can have many views to analyze a security. Each view can have multiple windows, each window can have multiple indicators. Click between several different views to easily analyize the securities movement from any angle you can envision. Most of the popular charting indicators are available as well as indicators unique to the HGSI Investment Software.
The Ranking tool ranks the contents of any group of securities and displays the results as a spreadsheet. Rankings can be for Relative Strength, Velocity, Acceleration or a combination of all three. Users can set the starting date for the ranking to get a perspective. Several different ranking methods are available e.g. Wilder RSI, Percent Change, Comparative RS, etc.
The Warehouse is a spreadsheet that dispays the data fields associated with a group of securities. You can have many different views e.g. a earnings view, revenue view, ranking view. Each view can also have a filter attached turning the Warehouse View into a scan that looks for the securities of interest and displays the data selectect by the user. There are no limits to the number of views.
