    Finding the Right Strategy For You

    Given the hundreds of indicators and trading strategies to choose from, how do we know which to choose? Do I want a strategy that allows me to trade several times a day? week? or year? Which fits my risk tolerance? Am I willing to take larger draw downs in exchange for larger possible returns? Or, am I a bit more comfortable with more of a "Turtle" approach as opposed to the "Hare"?

    Current Metastock 11 users who use data sources other than Reuters will find that Metastock 12 does only works with Reuters data. I contacted Equis and was told that the new edition will only use Reuters data and has no new indicators.

    Not just that, but the DownLoader goes away in 12. You HAVE to be connected to the internet to use it. I have "securities" files in the DownLoader that I create using external data and then pull up in MS 11. In 12 I won't be able to do this anymore. I will have to maintain the data in a spreadsheet and they link the spreadsheet data up into MS 12 as an indicator in an inner window as opposed to the core security.

     

    I have chats on Friday and Monday with folks at Reuters in sales and tech support. I am not one who screens large datasets, but instead use the software to watch the stocks I am tracking for signals. So I do not really use the Explorer now. I do write a lot of experts and custom formulas. From what I can tell, all that 12 gets me is that power console that really seems to do nothing for me. But I LOSE all the data management I get with the DownLoader and the ability to pound around in my stocks when not connected to a wifi source. Thus I would not be able to plop down at a Starbucks, download my data, then shut down my wifi (a security issue) while I sit there and investigate my securities and work on new experts. I HAVE to be connected to the internet, which raises my security risks. I have been a user of Metastock since July 1987. I may have purchased it for the last time with the upgrade to 11 last year. Such a shame.

    I will be using both versions, 11 and 12. I too only use data from yahoo converted to metastock for about 100 stocks. At least we can keep ver 11 as it is not uninstalled. However, you can only use one version at at time. Also you may install ver 12 on any computer with no new fees..only can use on one computer at a time. I downloaded Metastock 12 and tried to install. Several error messages encountered. I am trying to contact support for install but only getting busy signals all day.
