Dow Jones Private Investor Edition by Technical Analysis, Inc.
In its basic service package, Dow Jones Private Investor yields quotes on stocks,
bonds, mutual funds, indices, options and futures. It also taps information from
seven Dow Jones newswires.
Dow Jones's reputation for its assemblage of information for investment professionals is a just one. In the past,
accessing that wealth of information found in the Dow Jones News/Retrieval databases has not been overly
user-friendly, because the database structure could be difficult to work with and the access software was
undistinguished. But with Dow Jones News/Retrieval-Private Investor Edition (DJPI), Dow Jones is out to change
that. A spiffy new Windows interface with point-and-click searching now leads the user through the categorization that's
built into the software. The new access software provides a complete snapshot of all the services and features
available. And since that's quite a bit, those who want to explore this universe should exploit Dow Jones's offer of
eight hours' access from 7:01 p.m. to 6 a.m. local time to the 18 databases most valuable to private investors.
