Subject: Data Providers (Metastock/Omnitrader)
Author: TOBYWATSON Date: 1/17/00 4:53 PM Number: 2131
Dear all,

Since there appears not to have been a post on data providers for a while I thought I would start one.

Who uses a reliable data provider in Metastock format?

I looked at Reuters, but Telescan seems better value - the only thing is do they provide quality updates like Reuters?

Could someone advise?

Lots of folks use the Telescan service and are quite happy with it, however, I don't so I can't vouch for their statements.

Have you considered Worden Bros.? They don't send out a Metastock format but their software (TC2000 v.4, v.3 does not) does convert their format to a Metastock one.

TC2000's screening and Metastock is a tough act to beat.

Only the big three exchange listed issues are present, along with foriegn indecies, and technical indicators -- no BB's.

Nothing to analyze here!
