When deliberating on which charting package may be right for you, you need to consider several key factors. First and foremost, make sure the software has the ability to display candlestick charts. This book is full of reasons why candlestick charting is a superior way to display price data, and there's really no reason to waste time or money with a package that isn't candlestick friendly. Some of the other factors you'll want to consider are price, data (where it comes from, what it costs, and so on), and applicability to the type of security you're trading. All are covered in this section.
