Bee Software

Bee Software makes two products: ProTA and ProTA Gold. ProTA is Mac-based investment software that offers charting, technical analysis and portfolio analysis for the stock market, mutual funds, futures and options markets. ProTA is a complete market analysis solution designed specifically for the Mac-based investor/trader. It offers a suite of integrated trading tools designed to cover every aspect of computer-based charting and technical analysis. It supports fully automated data downloading with support for dozens of data formats. There's point-and-click database access and management, as well as over 60 built-in technical indicators and line studies.

ProTA's object-oriented charting interface offers intuitive control and total customization, according to the folks at BeeSoft. Technical displays and rankings are based on dozens of built-in technical calculations. Other features include: a context-sensitive floating toolbar; a built-in help system; drag-and-drop chart manipulation; context-sensitive popup command menus; Universal Text Importer; TickerPicker database access; chart templates; and Portfolio Sheets.

ProTA Gold is a high-end version of ProTA that provides, according to BeeSoft, unlimited control and customization over every aspect of technical analysis. The ProTA Gold application has been built on top of ProTA. This means that the ProTA Gold user has access to all of ProTA's features, in addition to the new features in ProTA Gold, all operating under a very similar but expanded user-interface.

It has formulary for custom indicators. In addition to the 50-plus indicators already built-into ProTA, ProTA Gold includes a comprehensive language to create, name and save just about any custom indicator, flag, boolean, etc. Custom indicators can be used throughout the program: a plot in a chart, a customized column for ranking in a portfolio sheet, a criteria in the new database scanner or even as a buy/sell rule in your own custom trading model.

Platinum version available with consulting time.

MetaView

MetaView is application that provides 3D stock market visualization and tools to organize your research. "At first it may look like eye candy" says developer Lyle Andrews, "something that looks like a display from the starship Enterprise to show off to your co-workers. But the more you see it and work with it, the more you understand what's actually going on out there.

Option Money

It allows both novice and sophisticated investors to manage their portfolio positions, create stock and option strategies, analyze portfolio risk, determine short and long term capital Gain/Loss and compile numerous useful reports, including a year-end schedule-D IRS tax report.
