[prMac.com] Chandler, Arizona - MF Software launched iStockPicks 1.0 today, one of the first "Freemium" Finance titles in the App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. iStockPicks allows you to setup lists of your favorite stock tickers, and it will do technical analysis on historical stock price movements to generate Buy/Sell/Neutral ratings.
While iStockPicks is free to download, it uses one Recommendation Credit for each rating, with additional credits available for purchase in-app. 200 credits are included for free with the download. This unique approach eliminates the high up-front download costs that similar apps from the competition require, and is a similar model to many popular games on the App Store today.
How does iStockPicks work? It uses a powerful custom "Recommendation Engine" that loads historic stock data for a given stock ticker (like "AAPL" for Apple, Inc.) calculates values like the RSI indicator, MACD, and Bollinger Bands, and then uses those indicators to suggest Buy/Sell/Neutral ratings on the stock. Once you get a recommendation for a stock, you can tap the recommendation to get more detailed data and analysis, as well as 3-month technical charts for that ticker.
All this data is at your finger-tips - perfect for setting up lists of your favorite stocks, and doing daily scans for buys and sells.
