Getting started with Metastock

Metastock 18 – Good but different

So you have just installed Metastock 18 and wondering  what to do next.

A key change is the Power Console and creating custom lists.  Once you master that you will be able to use Metastock effectively.

Here are some common questions.

  • How do I open a chart?  File/Open as used in the older versions of Metasock does not allow you to open a chart.  You need to create a Custom List before you can open a chart.
  • Where are my favourites?  Unfortunately they are not carried across. However the good news is you can use the new Power Console to create Custom Lists and create one as your favourites.
  • How do I connect Metastock to DataDirector3?  Once again, is this is  done with the Power Console and Custom Lists.
  • Is there a User Guide?  Yes a detailed guide of 137 pages. User Guide: Unleash The Power Of MetaStock
