Kelly Clement presents a comprehensive overview of MetaStock 18.
One of the core values of MetaStock is the ability to represent data in a fast, friendly, effective manner - on a chart. We are always working on our charts. With Next-Level Charting in MetaStock 18, you can view the data you want to see just how you want to see it. Customizable, sensible, easy-to-read, logical charts.
Power Console Updates
At the heart of MetaStock is the Power Console. Now you can get what you need faster with the enhanced searching capabilities which allow you to locate the instrument's folder by searching for either the name or the symbol. In addition, a dedicated favorites tab for your top explorations and tests, enhanced scan and test name search, and the ability to minimize the data display range round out the MetaStock 18 Power Console's new functionality.
Option Traders Love the convenience and power of OptionScope. The Enhanced OptionScope in MetaStock 18 was designed to give you an improved view of what is important when trading options â€“ Risk and Sentiment. With the Options Sentiment viewer, you can view where the market interest is in the options you are interested in. You can view both open interest and volume. You can even zoom in on the top traded options, no problem.
Introduced in MetaStock 17, QuoteCenter has become the standard for list management. MetaStock 18 offers a new Gainers/Losers bar so you can see at a glance how your account or list is performing. In addition, you can change the charts settings from your Power Console, making it even more convenient to set things the way you like them. It will now also share the theme settings with OptionScope.
Our users wanted more from their indicators and how they can customize them. MetaStock 18 is just what they ordered. The customizability is nearly endless. From a set of new plot styles including Stepped Line, Filled Line, Stepped Filled Line, Dot, and Histogram to a range of customizations including colors, shading, filling between envelope lines (like Bollinger Bands). To top that off we made sure all the indicator values now plot in the title bar as well.

The MetaStock Enhanced System Tester™
Are the indicators you are using the best possible for the securities you are analyzing? What is your win/loss ration? What is your drawdowns? Is there a better method for trading my account.

Page Layouts help you save time and stay organized. Save all of your on-screen charts together like pages in a book. So whenever you open your layout, the same securities appear.

Built-in toolbars let you easily refresh data, change periodicity, rescale the Y-Axis, zoom in & out, choose "previous" or "next security" in the open folder, and choose a security to open.
The Object Oriented Interface allows you to click on an object and get an instant menu for that item. The Click and Pick/Drag and Drop features let you drag price plots, indicators, text, and lines from one chart to another.

Indicators & Trading Systems
Analyze the market with the insight of the most respected traders in history with MetaStock's comprehensive collection of indicators and line studies â€“ over 150 are included. MetaStock's built-in indicator interpretations even help you understand how to trade each indicator. For advanced users, The Indicator Builder lets you write your own indicators.
42 Adaptive Indicators
Standard indicators use a fixed look-back period, which makes them less responsive to prevailing market conditions. MetaStock 13 incorporates 42 Adaptive Indicators with dynamic look-back functionality based on volatility, cycle, or a combination of both. This method provides the most responsive and accurate results.
Write your own system
MetaStock knows that many of our clients have their own ideas about what makes a great system. The MetaStock formula language is easy to learn and allows you to create just about any system you can think of. Not into programming? Tell us what you want and we'll do it for a nominal fee. Find out more about custom formula requests.
The best trading systems will fall short without a good exit strategy. MetaStock stop indicators help your system know when it's time to get out of the trade:
- Intellistops - these self-adjusting trailing stops do away with the old static stop systems, which are set at a fixed percentage from price. Intellistops are adaptive and adjust dynamically based on the current price activity of the security. Intellistops adjust according to cycles, volatility, and other conditions.
- Chandelier Stops - As the name indicates, Chandelier stops "hang" the sell stop from the extreme high reached over a predetermined period. When used properly, in tandem with other trading systems, Chandelier stops have been shown to produce profits even with randomly selected entries on a diversified group of futures.
The RMO System
This revolutionary trend-based system was developed by Rahul Mohindar. It incorporates a three-step indicator triggered by the Rahul Mohindar Oscillator and has become one of the most popular systems in MetaStock for its ease of use and reliability.
The Performance Systems
Trade at a higher level of confidence and expertise than you ever thought possible with the 26 trading systems included in MetaStock. Chosen after countless hours of intensive testing and rigorous research, these systems have a highly successful track record of profitable results.
We added state-of-the-art exploration tools to 10 of these systems. These explorations perform system testing - on not just one security - but over an entire database of securities. Plus, you'll get buy/hold vs. buy/sell comparisons, and buy/sell alerts to further assure your trade has the highest probability of success.
