MetaStock 12 – Everything You Want To Know But Were Afraid To Ask

The newest version of MetaStock includes two major components, MetaStock Xenith and the MetaStock chart and analysis functions you have come to know over the years.  To best serve current and future subscribers to our services, the time came to bite the bullet and implement the program.  About a month ago I started and began learning the newly available module now called MetaStock Xenith.  Following are some of my observations.

MetaStock Xenith

I did not expect MetaStock Xenith.  It is spectacular fundamentals platform.  Although the program includes charts and various technical indicators, MetaStock Xenith primarily provides fundamentals.  Fundamentals have never been a strong point for MetaStock.  They are now, plus some.  To understand its strength, you will need to try it for yourself (there is a free trial), but a wide array of up to the minute fundamental values is at your fingertips.  Frankly, I used Xenith primarily for looking up naming and identifier issues, but in the process was dazzled by the effective presentation of data never before available in MetaStock.

The frosting on the cake is the ability to link all the price data as well as fundamental data directly to Excel spreadsheets.  Each spreadsheet is limited to about 1500 rows, but with a little creative coding, it is easy to develop up to the minute data on thousands of securities.  It really is quite remarkable and initially overwhelming.  Soon, however, Xenith became one of the most productive programs I have ever experienced.

I am not a Xenith expert, yet, but I can get out of it what I need easily and quickly.  It is time to move on to implementing the new MetaStock charting and analysis part of the package.  Tomorrow’s webinar is for all MetaStock users, especially new users, including me.  So we will experience this orientation together.

Xenith Webinar October 15, 2013

Recently, we added Metastock’s Xenith data system to our data sources.  I have been in the securities industry for decades.  If you are a professional in our business, you should, at least, look at this program.  It makes tasks that were previously very difficult, relatively easy and sometimes, for the first time, possible.  It has and will make a great deal of difference in our services.  We are having a webinar on October 15, 2013 at 6:00 pm est.  For more information, go to the following URL:  http://www.metastock.com/Events/webinars/?t=SEMWEB-MXJG&p=39722&pc=eq-masterdata.
