    buttons on List Form)
    4. Highlights support and resistance (SAR button on Chart Form)
    5. Sorts selected chart patterns to highlight most recent patterns found
    6. After finding patterns, data can be placed on the clipboard or Excel for
    analysis (see List Form)
    7. Tells why a pattern was not recognized (the Why Not? button)
    8. Tells about tested chart patterns, including failure rates and performance
    tips (the Tell button)
    9. Calculates a volatility stop for both up and down breakouts (the Volatility
    button)
    10. Calculates pivot points, S1, R1, S2 and R2 (see the Probability button)
    11. Calculates a Fibonacci retrace for swing trading (see the Retrace button)
    12. Calculates the probability of a price trend continuing (see the Probability
    button)
    13. Has trendline support – click and drag the mouse (see the Chart Form)
    14. Volume ticks show pattern end points, which helps with volume trend and
    shape analysis.

    Hi Sowmya b
    I have downloaded the patternz software. It is asking for a vbx file named msmasked.vbx without which it can not open. Can you suggest me how it can be downloaded. Upon searching in google it led me to a site but i can not down load from the site since the page does not open. or else can you load it to traderji forum.
    Thanking you
    gvnarendra

    hi soumya,

    i tried to install patternz on my system. says vbrun300.dll not found. downloaded from dllfiles.com, but still coundn't succeed.

    you might have already installed on your system. if you can make a step-by-step installation notes from the help file, it may help many, including me.

    hope you can lead other members through, as with fibotrader.

    by the way, the other content at the download link provided is very interesting too.

    thanks.

    Dear Members,

    good!
    i think any software in the world can not accurately find any pattern.
    Patternz just help u to sort out the pattern like situation from thousands
    of stocks then it is your tern to find the actual one.
    the site is much worth than the software.

    strange! i didn't encounter any problem.
    if your system is running on XP then don't bother to install. just unzip it.

    forgive me

    best regards,
    soumya

    Hi murthymsr,
    I am also facing the same problem. I got the vbrun300.dll file through the net and installed it. after that it asked for msmasked.vbx file which i could not get through the net. I can not upload vbrun300.dll file since the file is of 225kb in size which can not be uploaded here. I am giving a link to download it here if anybody wants it http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?vbrun300 if you get msmasked.vbx please upload or give a link to download so that many will be benifitted. I am uisng windowsxp professional as operating software. according to sowmya b patternz is working fine in windows xp.

    Hello,

    Ths software works well in Windows Xp (SP2). I had installed it. Follow the instructions given by soumya and also carefully read the read me file(text doc) in the Zip file when you unzip the Pattern Exe.file. Since the date format may be different for different users the read me file has some solutions to the problem. After unzipping you must keep only the patternZ exe and one excel file Frmt in the folder. rest all to be deleted. Frmt also to be deleted if your date format is different. While installing it never asks for any other file in WinXp.

    I do not know how far the software is good. I feel the patterns are detected wellafter the event has occured. Any way in retrospective it looks very nice.

    CAREFULLY READ THE READ ME TEXT FILE FOR INSTRUCTIONS AFTER UNZIPPING THE ZIP FILE.

    Bye

    Saji
