Forex Charting Software by FX Trading Proves to be Game Changer

April 29th, 2011

The cutting edge Forex charting software by FX trading is based on displaying pure price movement instead of the standard time-frame based charting formula. This technology enables traders to track currency pairs in specific price ranges which in turn creates a consistent chart view.

This feature not only reduces the lag from all indicators, but also improves the overall performance of tools and technical studies. The essentially more precise charting strategy integrated into TradingFX charts eliminates distractions and provides more accurate indications for both entering and exiting trades. By designing several specific and easy to follow trading strategies, FX Trading takes trade management strategies to a completely different level.

Some of the features offered by FX Trading at include the following:
* Forex Range Bar Charts
* Point & Figure Charts
* Renko and Kagi Charts
* Standard Time Based Charts
* Currency Strength Index
* Modified US Dollar Index
* TFXD Oscillator
* 24/5 Online Trade Room
* Advanced Strategy Lessons
* Trader Training Classes
* Active Trade Calls during moderated Live Trade Sessions
* Interbank Trade Execution System

The trademark advanced Currency Strength Index or CCYX disassembles every pair and isolates the individual currencies. This simple process makes it easy to see the strength or weakness of each currency in relation to others.

By allowing traders to track the pairs with the greatest potential and momentum, they can readily place trades where both currencies are moving in the desired direction of their trade. In short, the FX Trading CCYX tool is ultimately a decision making tool which when used correctly can confirm chart trends and patterns which will lead to better trading opportunities. This tool can provide a coveted edge over both the market and other traders.


MIT Team Developing ‘DNA Origami’ Software

April 29th, 2011

A team at MIT are developing software that will allow people to play with DNA. When developed, this program will allow people to construct virtual 2D and 3D models and nanoscale tools, in a strategy that is being called DNA origami.

DNA molecules are highly useful in the development of synthetic photocells and targeted drugs among other things. However, the challenge of making new sequences and building DNA models for specific tasks has always been very difficult.

Enter the MIT team led by biological engineer Mark Bathe, who are continuing the work of Paul Rothemund from CalTech and William Shih’s from the Harvard Medical School. This new software is being developed to make it much easier for researchers to predict 3D shapes when working with given DNA templates.

“They’re sort of building blocks, but it’s even more crude because DNA is just a sequence,” Bathe says. “It’s taking the places you would connect the DNA together and predicting with a computer what it would look like in the final shape. The goal is to really have this be in the inverse, so the designer wants to make a box or a basket or a gear and then the program tries different folding combinations to give you the shape you want.”

Unlike protein modelling and other messy challenges in biology, DNA is relatively clean and obedient and can be dealt with mathematically. Bathe hopes this software will also open up the world of DNA origami to non specialists, saying “Once non-specialists can design arbitrary 3D nanostructures using DNA origami, their imaginations can run free.”

“Designers still have to guess the rules and then based on the shape modify the rules to get closer to the shape,” Bathe says, adding “It’s the Holy Grail to say, ‘I want this,’ and then it happens. We’ve made quite some progress already, so I think in the next half year to a year that should be coming out.”


Operating System Software booms, Microsoft leads

April 28th, 2011

The market of Operating system software is on roll, as it witnessed a hike to almost 7.8 percent to $ 30.4 million in 2010 from $28.14 billion in 2009, said a research report form Gartner. And Microsoft Windows is undoubtedly the king of operating systems (OS). Almost 8 out of every $10 dollar are spent in U.S. on Microsoft’s operating system .

The dominant presence of windows in the market can be felt by its market share. As per March 2011, Windows XP records a market share of 54.39 percent, Windows 7 is 24.17 percent. Thus Microsoft captured the overall market with staggering 78.6 percent market share.

An operating system is software that runs on computers and mobiles, and manages hardware resources consisting of programs and data, and provides common services for execution of various software applications.

Mac OS records the second position in operating system market. It is the fastest growing OS in the year 2010. As far the clients are concerned, Windows is leading the market at top position with the adoption of Windows 7, followed by Mac OS. Windows revealed that it sold 350 million licenses of Windows 7 and its client revenue increased to 9.2 percent in 2010 to 7.5 percent in 2009.

The strong sales of Apple Mac desktops and laptops including Apple tablets and mobile services Mac OS grew to 15.8 percent to a size of $520 million in 2010.

Within the Unix OS market, IBM AIX registered high single digit growth but Unix had a comparatively modest growth.

Apart these leaders in the OS world, Linux is among the fastest growing sub segments in the server as the end users looked out for more open standard systems. IBM stood with 7.5 percent share and HP with 3.7 percent. Most striking was Oracles fourth position in 2010 from eight in 2009.

This competition among these bigges is expected to be stiffer, as companies gear up to introduce exciting and innovating operating system software.
