Stocks & Commodities V. 24:2 (54): Quick-Scans: MetaStock Profx by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
If you want to see how the “Huf–Puf” (the Hungarian forint and the Polish zloty), “Nokkie–Stokkie” (the Norwegian krone and the Swedish krona), and
“Kiwi–Aussie” (the New Zealand dollar and the Australian dollar) are trading, you’ll find it all in MetaStock Profx.
Although it is similar to other MetaStock charting packages, MetaStock Profx provides charting tools, technical indicators, and trading systems specifically
for analyzing the foreign exchange market. In fact, the symbol list only includes currency pairs/crosses, and scrolling down the list of currencies, it appears they have covered just about every currency traded.
INSTALLATION AND DATA
The installation was relatively straightforward and simple. The data for the product is powered by QuoteCenter, a Reuters service. I didn’t experience problems with the times I tried the product, and from communicating with other users, it seemed that the datafeed was reliable.
