Those who would rather crunch numbers on their spreadsheets than go through the sometimes arcane
processes of packages designed just for trading will welcome Dow Jones's Spreadsheet Link 2.0, which
can gather data and news from Dow Jones News/Retrieval and deposit it all on your hard disk in a format
readable by Excel, Lotus 1-2-3 or Quattro Pro.
This is not the nutty idea it appears to be. Spreadsheet calculation and display capabilities have become
so overwhelmingly powerful that even the diehard technicians at STOCKS & COMMODITIES use them for
analyses. Today's extraordinary macro capabilities and formatting make routine daily analysis—custom
programmed by you—very feasible.
