Nov. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- There are many online charting services that offer a choice of technical indicators. However, if a trader / investor wants to program an indicator or create custom analysis, desktop financial software is required.

BBScript is a proprietary web-based programming language for technical analysis. It was developed to provide users with a quick, simple and easy way to implement a scripting language for plotting technical indicators for equities on EquityTrader’s and for forex data BBForex’s interactive charts.

Using BBScript, simple or complex indicators can be plotted on the charts at and The charts are interactive and highly customizable.  They provide features such as dragging, zooming in and out, vertical and horizontal trackers, trendlines, continuous data updates, drag and drop re-ordering of charts, etc. Now a BBScript editor is built-in and can compile and run BBScript code so the users’ indicators are rendered and displayed immediately.

BBScript is cloud based. It runs in a browser and all scripts are stored safely on the websites’ servers. Users can access any scripts/indicators they have created and saved from anywhere, at any time, through their browser using the BBScript interface.
