Do it yourself
If you have just a little programming background or have constructed technical indicators in the past, you should find working with EFS fairly straightforward. Here are the key resources for learning all about EFS and programming your own custom indicators.

· Start with our EFS Help Center and Library. Everything you ever needed to know about EFS, including study guides, reference glossaries and examples.

· Use the eSignal Formula Wizard. The Formula Wizard is designed to allow the non-programmer and, those who do not want to learn EFS, the ability to create customized formulas that use eSignal’s built-in studies. You can find this tool in eSignal under the Tools menu. For instructions, please visit the EFS Help Center and Library and review the Formula Wizard Guide.

· If you need a little help to get started or are just stuck omewhere, don’t forget about using the eSignal Central EFS Forums. In addition to other users, eSignal personnel monitor the boards and help wherever they can.

eSignal has partnered with a small group of skilled programmers and traders that will work one-on-one with eSignal users.

Suggest a new study

Have a popular study you think other users would benefit from? Think we’re missing a "must-have" indicator from our library? Let us know about it!

We are committed to expanding our library of available EFS formulas to benefit our community of users. Use our EFS Suggestion Forum to explain the study your suggesting and to give us as much information as you can about it’s design and usage. Our in-house developers and EFS Development Partners will evaluate all requests. Depending on the popularity and complexity of each study, we’ll work on those suggestions that will best benefit all eSignal users. As stated earlier, if you are in need of custom programming help, please contact one of our EFS Development Partners.
