    Is there a free website with metastock tutorials? Especially to do with formula creating/scanning ?

    So no one knows?

    How could I create a function that will show me stocks that have gone up say 10% in the last month?

    Oh actually by clicking the Edit feature on the inbuilt exploring functions I can see how they are built!

    Go the Equis website, and check out the forum there. Patrick has (at least) four multimedia shows for MS training on the site.

    From what I heard 9.1 has some bugs taken out and if you have purchased 9 from a reputable firm, you could ask for free update, you might be lucky.

    Hi Freddo,

    hhv(H,5) ..... is probably what you require.

    Are you developing an indicator, a filter or an exploration???

    happy trading

    I love MS language, so easy compared to Amibroker

    Just Use 2000 or 98 for running Metastock.

    There is a metastock formula primer. I have hard copied the tutorial.
    Found it on Google.
    Invest $120 a year and get Roy Larsens Metastock tips and Tricks.
    Fantastic value.

    Can anyone who has MS 9 or higher pm me please? Thanks!

    btw, these links may be helpful:
    http://www.equis.com/customer/resources/ (MS formula guides and some other stuff)

    My posts are not recommendations (even when I rave about something). Always rely on your own research & judgement.

    I have what I would hope would be a very simple question for experienced Metastock users. With the explorer, is there a simple way to scan all stocks in my asx folder. At present, there are lots of subdirectories beneath the asx folder (eg those beginning with A,B,C etc etc), but I can only select one sub-directory at a time. What I want to do is to select just the asx folder, and for metastock to then select all securities in all folders beneath the asx folder.

    There is a simple solution.

    However you have to load all folders once.
    Make an exploration up and in filter place Close.
    Load all the folders individually (Thats the pain).
    Once completed run the exploration.

    When finished click on Reports---then to the right youll see --Save list.

    Save it and call it ASX.

    You then have the full list ready to load with any explorations.
    A little imagination and you can see how you can make up and save all sorts of lists

    Tech - an interesting solution to this annoying MetaStock limitation.

    I worked around the same problem differently - I created a Favorites folder called "Entire Market". I then added the contents of all 26 directories under my base ASX data folder to this folder, one letter at a time. Now, I have a Favorites folder with the whole ASX market contained therein which is easy to load.
    The above post is entirely fictional and any resemblance to any stock living or dead is purely coincidental.
