Product Description

Personal Hotline Version 6.8 by Technical Analysis, Inc.

Personal Hotline from Trendsettters Software, one of the few technical analysis programs available for the Macintosh, gives you many capabilities that in DOS packages are usually only available seperately.

Readers who are Apple Macintosh users often call STOCKS & COMMODITIES looking for software that can perform the technical analysis they desire without running DOS/Windows emulation software. Personal Hotline from Trendsetter Software is one of the few technical analysis programs available for the Macintosh. (Trendsetter Software also publishes Personal Analyst and Professional Analyst programs for the Mac.) We last reviewed Personal Hotline, as version 6.6, in our January 1994 issue (and version 5.0 in July 1991) and, being ardent Mac-users (as well as a Mac-driven company), we looked forward to seeing it again. What we found was basically the same program, only with smoother operations, no bugs and many enhancements.

Loading Personal Hotline is automatic these days, and the manual immediately takes you on a tour of the program, which highlights the program's features. Immediately thereafter you're introduced to the integrated data downloading feature, which connects to the Dial Data data service, a feature that worked right out of the box for us. Thus set up, you're ready to dive into analysis.

A list-oriented program, Personal Hotline makes list construction fairly easy with checkboxes for futures and equity options series (Figure 1). You could put in individual symbols yourself, of course, but nearly everyone would use checkboxes instead. Once your list of potential tradables is constructed, the program will check to see what data you're missing and order the missing data from Dial Data. If you want it to check your data on an unattended basis, you can set it up for that as well.
