 From the desk of John Atkinson
Monday 3.50pm 

Dear fellow trader or investor,

Have you recently ordered Metastock …….. but have no idea where to start?

Or maybe you have owned your copy of this multi award winning charting program for a while ………..and are still wondering how on earth to set it up and use it properly?  

You are not alone.

MetaStock is a sophisticated software toolbox with powerful and sometimes complex capabilities. For many investors new to MetaStock, the extensive number of functions can be quite intimidating. The vast majority of investors would use only about 30-40% of MetaStock’s powerful tools! 

In his newsletter ‘Tutorials in Technical Analysis’, internationally renowned private trader and educator Daryl Guppy once said:

 “ MetaStock is a very user friendly program, but this does not mean it is particularly easy to use. There are many features which, once explained, are straightforward, but which are initially quite confusing. The learning curve for MetaStock is relatively slow for many users. Even for experienced users, many use perhaps 60% of the program’s capacity....."


What you probably DON’T
want to be doing right now..”

Here’s the reality: If you’re beginning in the Market, there’s more than enough to keep you busy for the next few years – researching Companies, discovering when to buy and sell, money and risk management and all the other skills necessary to become successful in the market.

Instead maybe you are faced with  ......How to find your data using MetaStock? ……..What’s a Smart Chart? …….How do you create Templates? ….. How do you apply Indicators? ……What’s a Layout? ...... How do you set up Expert Advisors to show the candlestick colors the way you want? …..The list goes on……

What you probably do NOT want to be doing right now is spending countless hours trying to figure out how to set up and use your MetaStock charting program, on top of the time you’ve set aside to learn about the market !

When All Else Fails...Read the Instructions”. Everyone agrees the MetaStock User Manual is completely comprehensive. 

If you are a computer geek it probably has everything you’ll ever need.... but let’s be honest; who has got the time to wade through it all? 

If you can relate to any of the above frustrations, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise - as Jim Berg’s Video Podcasts for Beginners will help you cut through the clutter and jargon of the MetaStock Manual so you get on with the business of trading the market.
