Welcome

This is an invitation to join the Ensign Echat trading community even if you are not an Ensign user.  Echat can be downloaded here:  http://www.ensignsoftware.com/downloads.php and a video (14) on how to use it is here if you need it:  http://www.ensignsoftware.com/support/videos.php

The BLine room is room 2 in echat.   Due to the large number in the room, we use Ventrilo for voice. This is NOT the same as Voice chat. Voice chat is for the smaller rooms. Please install and setup Ventrilo before connecting to avoid feedback.

The Bline room's main focus is education. We often do specific classes on Weds at 4:30 EST and try to do at least one playback on weekends. Anytime a question is asked it will be answered...naturally the long answer is usually when market is closed. There is no silly question but the unasked one. (The room also helps with Ensign support when they are closed and is there to shorten the learning curve for Ensign users.  Often there is help with Sierra and other programs too.)

Sierra users:
The Study Collection for B-Line in Sierra is named "Buffy" and is located in the analysis drop down menu on the Sierra charting program on version 406 or higher

Ninja users:
The template is available here:

There are many templates available not only through Ensign internet services but also at DaCharts.
www.dacharts.com/templates/index-nw.php

Our current template is called buttons. Please understand that the template can be customized to how you want it to look. I recommend unchecking objects in the property window rather than deleting them.

This chart shows the termonology you will hear and show you how to adjust your chart properties window to make the candles look the same.
