Product: Trading and analytical software Equipment required: Apple Macintosh personal computer with hard drive recommended

Price: $495 with 30-day money back guarantee and $10 shipping and handling. Includes seven stock, index, futures or perpetual data files.

This is the fourth year for this nifty little Macintosh-based package, one improving steadily. Personal Hotline 4.56 will download all your stock and futures data from one of several vendors, graph it along with a number of standard and proprietary indicators and throw in trade recommendations from its very black trading system.

I found this software tough to use despite its intriguing features and adherence to the Macintosh interface. It's not compatible with a plain vanilla AppleTalk network, so some of the problems I had printing graphics and text may be due to that. The bombs I experienced happened only within my SE, however. The program needs to be tested on a wider variety of hardware setups.

In addition, the manual, which was recently rewritten, isn't the best I've seen for organization and needs an index. Some items in the menu choices aren't explained or, if they are, are explained in some place other than where they're first mentioned. (The extend button is my favorite example.) Other items—the split function—are described in one paragraph but left unexplained at all.
