How about a raw plotting program with no indicators? Such things are rare these days, but SPLOT!
(Stock Plot) is probably the best of the small bunch.
Configured to run on an IBM-compatible platform with EGA/VGA and DOS 3.0 or higher, SPLOT! 4.0
will absorb about half a meg of hard disk and handle up to 200 stocks and 100 portfolios per
directoryŚwith up to 3,200 days of data! All this is dumped out on your display or printed out on your
definition of logarithmic charts. You can add your own growth/loss rate lines (log scale, remember) as
well as buy and sell indicators in glowing color. Any Hewlett-Packard-or-Epson-compatible printer may
Data are SPLOT!'s big feature. You can either input your own data or download from one of five sources:
CompuServe, from which you can choose from four forums; FNN SIGNAL; X*PRESS Executive or
X*PRESS CHANGE; Dow Jones, from which you can also choose from four data bases; or Stock Data,
Inc., for which, at last check, Data Base Associates obligingly provided an introductory discount.
SPLOT! can also edit its data and import/export from/to ASCII files. To receive data via your cable
television line, however, you will need a signal converter.
