Product: Trading system for stocks
Equipment Required: IBM PS/2, PC, XT, AT or true compatible, 512K RAM minimum,
IBM-compatible graphics printer, graphics board, Hayes or compatible modem. Hard disk and math
coprocessor strongly recommended.
Other Expenses: Price data service, either Hale Systems or Dow Jones News/Retrieval
Level of Analysis: Intermediate
Ease of Use: A
Disclosure: F (undisclosed)
Here's a well-executed program that downloads data from the Hale or Dow Jones data services,
massages it into 12 familiar indicators and generates trading signals for your favorite stocks. Thrown in is
a small position (not portfolio) manager (Profit Manager) and a really nice graphics capability.
AIQ/Stock Expert is said to employ artificial intelligence in generating trading signals. We must, I think,
take that with some salt because none of the "thinking" (i.e., the trading rules) are disclosed. While
indicator formulas and examples are given, all you really need to know to use Stock Expert is what pops
out as a buy/sell on the "Action List."
