MetaStock by EQUIS International (formerly Computer Asset Management), has become one of the
most popular technical analysis charting packages on the market today. EQUIS has cleverly kept its
software compatible with as many data vendors as possible by providing extensive downloading and
conversion utilities. In addition to the more traditional telephone-linked data bases, you can now access
data from FM carriers such as Lotus Signal and Telemet. This lets owners of other brands of software
switch to MetaStock without forfeiting previously accumulated data.
MetaStock Professional (MS-Pro) is an expanded and enhanced programs which rivals the power of the
most expensive packages at a fraction of the cost. MS-Pro retains the ease of operation, excellent
graphics and data compatibility of MetaStock.
The new program has an extensive pull-down menu system to help the beginner access all the new
features without having to remember dozens of new commands.
MS-Pro has full macro automation which allows you to organize your analysis routines and have the
program run them for you each time (plotting them to the screen, the printer or both).
