Overview, setup, installation and use of TradeSim with BullCharts
April 2020 important note: Back in 2018 we had feedback which led us to believe that the TradeSIm product was no longer available from, nor supported by, the original software supplier CompuVision. However, that situation has changed.
David at CompuVision now responds to email requests for new or refreshed license keys. So any user who has purchased TradeSim in the past, and who has moved the software to a different computer and who now needs a new license key, can email to the support email address on the CompuVision website and request one. (Remembering that the software license key is a very long string of characters that are derived from key details about the elements of your computer system. So that upgrading your computer in anyway will probably require a new key. This becomes apparent when you try to run TradeSim).
Robert Brain BullCharts User Group (BCUG)
The BCUG has looked at, and demonstrated, TradeSim couple of times in recent years (June 2018, and April 2020). Robert prepared a set of slides to provide an overview of how BullCharts and TradeSim work together, and how to install TradeSim and create a TradeSim scan and run back testing using the TradeSim. Links to these materials are included below.
