Hey Guys,

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Asian Pacific Advisory Group (Asian Pacific Share Market Services PTY LTD)?
In particular their "Integra Pro" stock market analysis & portfolio management software.

http://www.integrastock.biz/

Are these above systems worth while getting into?

I've been reading and learning as much as i can from the forum and thank everyone for their input.

Cheers,

I just noticed your post. I'm surprised you haven't had a reply yet from anyone else.

My advice....steer clear. These guys have changed names from MCI, to Tomato Technologies and now to the new name Asian Pacific bla bla.

They are behind a ridiculously overpriced black box trading system called Star Trader. For the price of their software you could buy a sophisticated analysis program and 100 quality books to learn about trading. :mad:

Ps. It looks like the "Integra Pro" software is just their Star Trader black box rebranded. Forget it.

Pps. As this is your first post, why do I get the feeling you already know all about these guys?

Hi Guys, Integra Pro is the renamed version of Star Trader. It is a black box for share trading. Although I have never used Integra Pro, I can tell you a lot about the program is came from, Star Trader. I bought Star Trader and used it for about 2 years and found the program to be useless, even in a bull market where you would think you could get some decent results. It is an overpriced piece of software that basically scans the market by using about 4 indicators from memory. To anyone who is thinking about getting this software, in my opinion DON'T waste your money like I did. Just think logically, if the software was any good the company that sells the software (Asia Pacific - stock code AAS) wouldnt have Administrators appointed to try to sort out the financial mess that they are in. The stock is currently suspended from trading and has has been for a while now. I mean surely, if the program did what it claimed to do, then they would be able to use it to make money to prop up their business In my experience it does not do what they claim. Again, I would like to stress these are my opinions that have been formed by using Star Trader and dealing with the company. If the above is not enough to convince you not to buy, think about this; The company and the software seem to keep changing names, why would they need to do this if what they were selling was any good?

ABSOLUTE RIP OFF

I've just posted the same message to the thread called 'Integra Pro?'

we wish we weren't so naive ...
we bought the program in May 2007 after an eager persuasion by a sales person with 100% money back guarantee if we didn't make the money back we spent on the purchace ($6900) within 13 months.
the program didn't suit us, we were told it only requires 15 mins a day to profit from but it was far more complicated for us to understand and utelise.
accordingly we claimed the refund 13 months later, then they replied that our claim was being processed. we didn't hear from them for a few weeks so asked them how our refund was going then got a reply saying they required 1 month written notice but it was on its way. after more than 1 month later from the time we made the claim, we received an email saying the company was under an external administration and we had to prove the debt that the company had with us...... and the refund is not looking promising at all.

we are not knowledgeble at all of the relating laws regarding such case and puzzled by this. $6900 is a lot of money for us and we only spent so much because they guranteed 100% money back if we didn't profit from the product. We are feeling so ripped off but absolutely lost where to turn to.

I have just read the PDF file (MS LAW's case at Victorian civil tribunal) posted above, maybe we can seek help in similar way in QLD, although I don't really know where to start, how much it will cost at this stage...

Any comment/advice would be appreciated.

hi guys.

About 4 to 5 years ago i bought the program star trader. And now it's called integra pro. Even though i bought it i actually never had a time to get into it (its crazy i know). I have been reading through forums and all i can see is stay away from it, dangerous, etc.

Well as in my case i all ready have the software. Can i use it to trade as i all ready have it? ---- Does it do a real analysis and can i depend on it ? ---- Or is it just doing a random calculation ? ---- Is it good to at least manage my shares?

Any advice would be great. I just have the software so i want to take use of it.

I've bought my copy of the integra pro about 11 years ago when the name of the Program was called Blue chip trader.. The Customer service is first class and I get about 1 or 2 Free updates are year, I use the integra pro to find my stocks and I use an advance stand alone Point and Figure program to confirm selling the CFD or to Buy the CFDs because I like too trade the point and figure way............Point & Figure (P&F) charts are one of the simplest and clearest ways to determining the best time to buy and sell shares. The P&F system represents one of the oldest approaches to share market trading. This method takes the technical analysts approach while monitoring supply and demand for each share. And the charts are designed for long-term trading so that the time and cost of trading shares is minimal.

I think what turns people away from the Integra pro is that the price of the program is too high , I paid 11 years ago $ 2,900.00 for it..I don't no the price of the program now but think I was reading some were that it's about $ 8,000.00 which I think would be to much, However by saying that it is a Business that your running so you can clam it on your tax like I did...

Before buying and selling shares, it is necessary to assess 2 market indicators:


The industry group to which the share is associated. The Australian Stock Exchange supplies index figures on about 45 different groups.

The market as a whole. This should be assessed via inspection of the All Ordinaries, All Industrials, All Resources charts as well as overseas indices like the Dow Jones.


Shares should only be purchased when the market as a whole is bullish. Similarly, shares must be selected from industry groups that are bullish and acting better than the rest of the market. The integra pro will let you select the Different groups and will only pick those stocks in that Group.. So at the end of the day it's up too you and your technical analysts approach to pick the stocks out ... just like any other Program. that is out there on the Market :D
