Pathfinder Trading System by Nelson Freeburg
Rev. 02/21/97

To recreate the Pathfinder currency trading system (described in the October1996 interview with Nelson Freeburg) in MetaStock for Windows, open two charts,one of the desired currency and the other of Treasury bonds. For this example,I used the Swiss Franc. Choose Tile from the Window menu so both charts arevisible. Drag the T-bonds price bar and drop it on the heading of the currencychart. Your currency chart should now have T-bonds plotted in the top innerwindow of the chart. Click on the T-bonds plot in the currency chart so it'sselected (that is, little squares appear on the price bars). You will needto select the T-bonds plot each time before running a system test. The selected plot tells the MetaStock System Tester what to use for "P". Next, chooseSystemTester from the Tools menu, and then New to create a new system. Enter the following system rules, stops, and options and then run the test.
