Why Auld Tyma Market Analysis Tools?

Peering at charts and their myriad indicators takes us along way to understanding what the charts are telling us, but there are times when looking at the chart data in an alternative way is also illuminating. This has lead the Auld Tyma to develop a number of tools to further analyse the chart data and reduce it to simple tables and alternative chart formats, or to create Excel versions of charts previously maintained manually, such as W D Gann’s Master Charts.


Many of the Auld Tyma’s Analysis Tool use chart data exported from market analysis applications as CSV files. That exported data can be data from OHLCV charts, Gann Swing Charts or the various other formats of data depending on the indicator data exported. 

Using the Analysis Tools

The Analysis Tools are Microsoft Excel 2010 macro-enabled Workbooks that accept market data copied as CSV files from the following market analysis applications:

  • Optuma (by Market Analyst), or
  • ProfitSource (by HUBB). 

Note: Many of the Analysis Tools only work with specific market analysis applications (Optuma or ProfitSource) so it is essential that you download the Analysis Tool for your data source market analysis application. Tools that are application specific will have the application name (Optuma or Hubb) in the download link like this:


            [Application] Analysis Tool Kit


All the Analysis Tool Workbooks are compressed into ZIP files and need to be extracted before attempting to use them.


On first opening in Excel, the Analysis Tool will probably generate a Macro warning - accept the running of the macros - otherwise the Workbooks will not work!
