They are supplied as part of the  JB Premium Charts and data package for USA or ASX, or in  Jim Berg's  Step-by-Step Ultimate JB Combo package of JB Premium Charts, JB Premium Data, Jim's Home Study Course, DVDs of Jim 'live' and email support.

For several years, Jim Berg was the Lead Educator for a very powerful stock charting program.

In the end, he found it contained far too many indicators and functions he never used. Many of Jim’s students also found it was far in excess of what they needed to trade easily without having to become a programming ‘geek’.

So once he had developed and proven his now world famous JB Volatility Indicators, Jim created his own JB Premium Charts program. It’s so easy to use that over the years since it was launched, we rarely receive any technical queries on how to use it!

Many other stock charting programs will cost you several hundreds of dollars for the program alone.  To this you must still add the cost of end-of-day data!

We understand that Jim’s JB Volatility Indicators are also included within, or are provided as optional add-ins to several other charting packages, including Amibroker, Bullcharts, IC Investor, Market Analyst and Stock Doctor.

However, as these programs are managed by others, we cannot guarantee their accuracy in determining the timing of entries and exits.

Not directly. Our JB Stock Price Data and JB Premium Charts programs are designed to run under Windows (Windows 2000 and above).

However, you can run our programs on a Mac through the medium of Windows emulation software or a virtual machine (such as VMware).

Subscriptions are for individual users. An individual user is allowed to update from two computers at no additional cost, as long as both machines belong to the user and are for his or her personal use; e.g. your laptop and main desk top computer at home.

However an individual subscription cannot extend to multiple machines. Nor is the data allowed to be disseminated or shared amongst individuals. If the intended use is in a small corporate environment such as a broker's office, where 4 or 5 people require access to the data on separate machines, then the usual solution is to contact us for additional licenses at a discounted rate. Alternately, we can provide a commercial license which allows unlimited internal use.

To install on your own private second machine, just follow the same routine as for the initial installation i.e. obtain the installers, save them to your machine, then run them. 

No. Unlike many of our competitors, if and when JB Premium Charts are upgraded, there will be no additional charge.
