"Premium Data" is designed to work under the Windows environment.
For it to work satisfactorily, your machine will need to have (at least):
- a Pentium microprocessor
- Windows 2000 (or higher)
- 750MB of free disk space
- 512MB of RAM
- Internet access (preferably broadband)
To update your stock market data each day, all you need to do is open the program and click the "update" button.
Status Page - shows the real-time status of all exchanges covered in the service (pre-open, open, closed, holiday, mid-day break etc)
Database Structure tool - allows the database structure to be changed so as to include or exclude A-Z sub-folders.
Back-up tool - one-click to back-up or restore historical data.
The strongest feature of the software is its ability to create Custom Folders.
These folders hold particular groups of securities for focused analysis.
For instance, a Custom Folder could be created that holds only Oil & Gas stocks, or only those stocks in a certain index.
Premium Data supplies a large number of pre-defined groups as part of the service, but users can create their own groups as well.
Custom Folders are especially useful in conjunction with third-party charting/analysis packages such as MetaStock™ that have screening or exploration facilities.
