[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 12, 2007 - BeeSoft announces the update of ProTA and ProTA Gold, their leading stock market charting and technical analysis software for Mac OS X. ProTA delivers professional-level market analysis to ordinary investors and short-term traders in a modern, Mac OS X user interface.
Version 3.1 is now a Universal Binary, running natively on both Intel Macs and older PowerPC Macs. On Intel Macs, ProTA and ProTA Gold 3.1 operate 2-4 times faster than previous versions. Virtually all time-consuming computational operations show a very significant speed increase. Some examples:
* Scanning a stock market database for securities meeting a user-defined criteria: 3 times faster.
* Optimizing the parameters of a user-defined Trading System: 3 times faster.
* Computing time-consuming Custom Indicators: 4 times faster.
* Opening complicated charts with many views and analyses applied: 3 times faster.
Scrolling, resizing and the general response of the program is also noticeably faster on Intel Macs.
This upgrade is free for existing customers of any OS X version of ProTA or ProTA Gold.
From the developer Jeffery Bizon: "I was surprised with the magnitude of the speed increases when compared to the previous version. Trading models and database scans complete in less than one-third the time. The speed jump is sufficiently large to open up new avenues of analysis. For example, some models I had previously considered too time-consuming have now become part of my daily analysis regimen."
* Fully automated data downloading with support for dozens of data formats
* Fast, easy point-and-click database access and management
* Object-oriented charting interface for easy customization and control
* Over 50 built-in technical indicators and line studies
