MetaStock Sets the Standard in Charting

No other software in the market gives you sharper, more revealing charts than MetaStock. MetaStock gives you nine of the most widely-used price charting styles:

Page Layouts help you save time and stay organized. Save all of your on-screen charts together like pages in a book. So whenever you open your layout, the same securities appear.

Templates also save you time by applying the same set of indicators and studies to different securities. Rotate through different securities while keeping the same indicators and line studies on the screen.

Built-in Toolbars let you easily access the tools to refresh data, change periodicity, rescale the Y-Axis, zoom in & out, choose “previous” or “next security” in the open folder, and choose another security to view.

The Object Oriented Interface allows you to click on an object and get an instant menu for that item. MetaStock is the only technical analysis program with a complete Object Oriented Interface. The Click and Pick/Drag and Drop features allow you to drag price plots, indicators, text, and lines from one chart to another.

The Explorer™ – Scan the Markets to Find Winning Securities

Finding profitable trading opportunities starts with scanning the markets for securities that meet your criteria. The options in the marketplace are vast and can be overwhelming, as well as next to impossible to do your own. However, MetaStock’s built-in search tool, The Explorer, makes it quick and simple.

Tell The Explorer what you’re looking for—say you want stocks that have just crossed above their 200 day moving average. The Explorer searches thousands of securities to instantly find those that match this description. You could then run The Explorer again to drill down further in this list and find securities that match whatever specific criteria you’re looking for.

You can also use The Explorer to generate a list of potential money-makers, find the biggest gainers, the most active stocks, or generate daily buy and sell signals.

The Explorer does the tedious, time-consuming work for you, so that you can get to the stock with little effort and trade faster.

The Expert Advisor™ – Consult the Experts

The Expert Advisor is an educational tool that helps you interpret technical analysis signals. This compilation of trading styles and rules from experts such as Martin Pring, Gilbert Raff, and Bill Williams offers commentaries and suggestions as to when to buy or sell. It gives you 60 “experts” to apply to your trading.

The Expert Advisor brings you advice from a team of pros, enabling you to find out what they would do if they were in your specific trading situation.

The Enhanced System Tester™ – Test Your Trading Ideas

With The Enhanced System Tester you can create, back-test, compare, and perfect your strategies before you risk any of your money in the markets. System testing helps answer if your strategy is profitable, what it’s success rate is, and whether it’s going to achieve your goals. The surest way to increase your confidence in a trading system is to test it historically. The Enhanced System Tester lets you take a group of stocks and compare them to a group of trading systems to find the best scenario.

Because it’s designed to simulate real trading scenarios, the Enhanced System Tester allows you to change variables such as entry, exit, order sizes, commissions, and more. It also gives you incredible customization options, comprehensive results, and detailed reports so that you can find the most historically successful trading scenario.

The Enhanced System Tester allows you the ability to incorporate vast amounts of historical data and use it to analyze and forecast into the future – and that will definitely help you assess which trading systems will be most profitable.
