Ensign IV, which is fed by the Bonneville Market Information (B MI) service, is an impressive package,
even for a DOS-based product. It's big, for one thing, with just about every feature I'd use in trading, but
it's also fast and easy to use: a nimble giant. Even though this was developed by just one guy, Howard
Arrington, it's as finished as products being turned out by the committees at Microsoft.
