In the Auld Tyma's view, Optuma (by Optuma Pty Ltd) is the best market analysis software available to those traders and serious students of the charts of stocks, commodities, indices, and foreign exchange.
Within Optuma is a powerful Scripting Language and, as an add-on, a Pascal Programming Language Module that enables traders and market students to create their own tools and indicators to assist their research and the trading of their favourite markets. As one of those who has delved into Optuma Scripting and Pascal Programming, the Auld Tyma has come up with some Scripts, Pascal Tools, Layers and Workbooks that may be of interest.
Optuma uses the typical graphics application approach of Layers that allow groups of Tools to be applied to a chart within a group (ie Layer) that can be rendered visible or hidden. Layers can contain standard Optuma Tools, along with user created Tools using the Optuma Scripting or Pascal Programming functionality.
The Optuma Scripts are available in three forms as:
Importing Layers and Scripts received from Auld Tyma Data, and other Optuma users, must be undertaken with considerable care or the Scripts included in Layers may not work as expected. To ensure the Auld Tyma Data Layers and Scripts work as intended please carefully follow the instructions detailed in the "Installing Optuma Layers and Scripts" note listed below.
Optuma Pascal Tools are complied Tools created in Optuma Pascal and published as "*.olt" files that must be copied into the "Documents>Optuma>Local>Custom Tools" folder.
Optuma Workbooks are "*.owb" files that must be copied into the "Documents>Optuma>Local>Workbooks" folder.
